We depend on healthcare throughout our lifetimes, for ourselves, and our families and friends, but it is notoriously difficult to navigate and understand. As an industry that comprises 20% of the US economy we think healthcare should work better for all of us. At Collective Health we believe it’s time for a new day in healthcare where as members we are informed and empowered to make the right care choices when the decisions are urgent and critical. 


At Collective Health, we care about creating a culture of diversity, openness, and transparency, while engaging our intellectual curiosity, and problem solving skills. We are looking for an experienced engineering leader to be a collaborative partner in building member experiences that connect our members and employers to the right care at the right time. Because the help and information members need from us is often at the most critical times, they require a frictionless consumer experience that sets a new standard for healthcare. This team owns all member and employer facing touchpoints from our Member Portal which includes things like digital and print versions of health insurance cards, doctor search, and health plan information to our Employer Portal which includes reporting and analytics capabilities administrators use to run their employee health plans. Producing these experiences accurately and at scale takes real innovation in the healthcare space. 


Healthcare systems today consist of arcane file formats, legacy mainframe systems, and other antiquated technologies. We’re building the next generation healthcare platform, and we’re proud to be on the leading edge of this important mission. If you want to make a difference in the healthcare of those around you, join us. 


What you’ll do:

  • Lead multiple teams of software engineers developing our external facing experiences that support the growing number of Collective Health customers, members, and partners, etc. 
  • Leverage your technical knowledge and experience to lead rapid short-term projects and feature development as well as longer-term development of new experiences and services.
  • Partner with product management to set engineering priorities, estimate scope of work, define release schedules, and track progress.
  • Actively foster high-quality software development by setting best practice example or standards for code reviews, pair-programming, feature development and innovation through new technologies and systems prototypes. 
  • Work with data scientists to deploy machine learning based approaches to production products and workflows
  • Mentor and develop engineers, technical leads, and engineering managers.
  • Enable and enhance production readiness of the broader service ecosystem
  • Report to the VP of Engineering and manage teams in our SF office. 


What we’re looking for:
