About us

At Sparrow, we pair advanced software with deep domain expertise to enable employers to provide all kinds of leaves (i.e. family, medical, etc.) to their employees with no overhead and a simple seamless experience.

The leave management process has traditionally been painful and inefficient for everyone involved. Company leaders struggle to keep up with regulations and processes that change frequently, and are often unable to take advantage of various benefit programs, leaving money on the table. Employees going on leave are overwhelmed by bureaucracy at an exceptionally important juncture in their lives and careers.

Sparrow aims to transform this tedious, error-prone, and time-consuming process into a quick and simple one, saving teams time (20-40 hours per leave) and money (up to $25K per leave), and providing employees a seamless leave experience.

Sparrow is a diverse, highly talented and supportive team. Together, we are hardworking, collaborative, smart, and humble—after all, we’re solving real problems.


About the role

We are growing quickly and looking for engineering leaders to join our team. In this role you will:

  • Support and lead a talented team of engineers;
  • Recruit and hire engineers to grow the team;
  • Shape critical team practices and process around onboarding, interviewing, planning, execution and more;
  • Partner closely with teams across the company to define, scope and plan out the engineering roadmap;
  • Nurture and develop a team culture that values collaboration, engineering excellence, inclusivity and psychological safety;

As an early member of the engineering leadership team, you will have a significant opportunity to play a pivotal role in Sparrow’s growth and setting the direction and culture of the engineering team.
