Position description

Software, automation, and design are at the heart of Counsyl’s mission and drive our innovative approach to health technology products, platforms, and operations. We are a team of builders: our custom-built infrastructure and products run on an open-source stack of tools, such as Python, Django, JS, Postgres, etc. As an experienced Engineering Manager, you’ll lead, develop, and grow a team of engineers to create software that’s revolutionizing the clinical lab and modernizing the patient/clinic experience. We are seeking a highly technical, experienced, and motivated manager who is passionate about using software to reshape healthcare.

What you’ll do:

  • Provide technical leadership -- articulate high-level technical strategy and product vision, encourage technical discussions, promote cross-functional projects, and facilitate code reviews to drive the shipping of quality code into production
  • Grow your team -- work with recruiting to source, hire, and onboard talented and passionate engineers
  • Lead performance reviews and career development for new and existing engineers
  • Create and launch product/platform initiatives from conception to deployment using modern open source technologies (e.g. new patient/clinic experiences, sample processing and robotics workflows, clinical data interfaces, etc)

About you:

  • Significant experience managing teams of software engineers (e.g. 3+ years technical management with 5+ years hands-on technical experience)
  • A leader who can motivate technical teams to design, test, and ship maintainable code within a fast-paced, collaborative production environment 
  • Skilled in software engineering, full-stack development, and fluency with at least one programming language (Python, Ruby, JS, etc.)
  • You LOVE guiding and mentoring engineers along their career path -- whether they are a seasoned veteran or a recent college graduate
  • A science or genomics background is NOT required - solving these problems requires a fundamental understanding of CS, practical software engineering skills, and the ability to work/manage others in a fast-paced production environment
