About Our Client
Our Client is an early stage, venture funded healthcare data services company enabling innovation in and around health insurance and employee benefits. Our vision is to become the Sabre of health and benefits – the data and services layer on which others build health insurance and employee benefit technology solutions. Today our health insurance data platform, which consists of health plan benefit and rate, provider-network and formulary data, is the foundation on which health technology companies build innovative solutions.
We are currently looking for VP of Engineering to lead our engineering team. This role will be critical in our development as we scale out the engineering team and you will have a great deal of autonomy and accountability in setting and adhering to best practices for the team. The ideal candidate will:
- Be passionate about building products
- Have 10+ years of experience working within and 3+ years leading a team of 10+ engineers on web applications (bonus points if it was a start-up)
- Enjoy mentoring more junior team members
- Have an opinion on tools, techniques and what makes great code
- Have excellent leadership and project management skills
Building Great Products with Great Practices
We are data people. Process driven, organized and obsessed with the details. We’re dedicated to using the right procedures at the right time: Lean/user testing for Product, Agile/XP for development, Kanban for data. We use whatever practice is most appropriate, and your voice will be important in building new team processes.
We love our work, but we also recognize the importance of work-life balance. We want you to grow as we grow. We hope you are passionate about something besides healthcare data, and we hope you’ll share your passions at one of our personal interest talks. We are active participants in the NY Tech Meetup scene. We hold regular company-wide events like bowling, happy hours, movie nights, yoga – the list goes on.
We provide unlimited snacks and drinks (yes, we are foodies), and our open vacation policy encourages you to responsibly take time off when you need it.
What We Offer
- Competitive Salary
- Equity Participation
- Health Benefits
- 401K with matching
- Flexible PTO
- Stand-up desks
Why It All Matters
The development of modern applications for evaluating, enrolling in and using health insurance and employee benefits has been constrained by the lack of a centralized, structured data source. And yet these coverages are critical to one’s physical and financial health. Our client’s role is to make the data easy, so that others can build features, functionality and user experiences to solve a myriad of health insurance and benefit related problems. With a mission to enable innovation through data, the team at our client is proud to be a fundamental part of the transformation of health and benefits.
Insuretech is one of today’s fastest-growing sectors and our team is pouring the data foundation. Do you think you are a fit for this role? We would love to hear from you!
