  • Empower your team to build scalable and secure systems for Maven's users, both medical professionals and patients
  • Foster the curiosity and empathy of your team

We’re looking for someone to bring core capabilities to our team: 

  • 3+ years of experience in a team management capacity, ideally a team of 4+ engineers
  • 6+ total years of professional software development experience on production-quality products
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Experience building and maintaining a complex set of systems
  • Experience working with product leads to deliver on time and on target
  • Experience working within some form of privacy, security, or regulatory constraints

Maven is intentionally built using a tried-and-true technology stack that is easy to learn if you are not familiar with all of these.

  • Python

  • SQLAlchemy
  • Google Cloud Platform (Kubernetes)
  • React

At Maven, we believe that a diverse set of backgrounds and experiences enrich our teams and allow us to achieve above and beyond our goals. If you do not have experience in all of the areas detailed above, we hope that you will share your unique background with us in your application and how it can be additive to our teams.

If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
