Engineering Manager


Job Description

Clipboard Health is a profitable, post Series C unicorn that is part of the Top 100 YC Companies

Why We Exist

We exist to lift as many people up the socioeconomic ladder as possible. The average nursing assistant
without a college degree makes $36k a year; the average nursing assistant on Clipboard Health makes
$53k a year and the top 5% make $74k a year. We dramatically improve lives, by letting healthcare
professionals turn extra time & ambition into career growth. We have healthcare professionals texting us
photos of a car they were finally able to buy, a school & church they’re building in their native Haiti with
money they earn here, and more.

We’re a post-Series C, wildly profitable, extremely fast-growing startup with classic two-sided network
effects. Our gross revenue increased by roughly 25 times in the last 18 months, we’ve grown 6x
(across all key metrics) in the last 11 months and need your help to keep growing to serve more
healthcare professionals, healthcare facilities, and patients.

What’s weird about working with us?

  • We care, a lot. Our CEO spends substantial time regularly doing customer service, and many of
    our healthcare professionals and healthcare facility clients have her personal cell phone
  • We are globally distributed. Just on the engineering team we have folks from: the United States,
    Chile, Mongolia, Turkey, India, Ukraine, Indonesia, Brazil, Columbia… and that’s just from folks
    who’ve joined us so far this year.
  • We take our values seriously: our COO literally has a handmade Curiosity Initiative and
    Ownership sign on his wall (you’ll see it if you videocall him).
  • We have more engineers than we “need” on purpose. It makes us fast (many features go from idea
    to production in 2-4 weeks). It also allows small teams to see a problem, and just go fix it. A team
    went off and created a new SaaS product, another team rewrote a core service under a new
  • One thing we value is that we have no “toes” here to be stepped on. See a problem? Go ahead
    and fix it, you don’t need permission.

You’re good at:

  • Leading one or more engineering teams at a time
  • Mentoring engineers of all experience levels and managing your teams’ performance to increase
    the output of the people you lead and others around them
  • Writing code as a part of your team to build scalable/high-performance systems, and
    understanding complex technical areas along the way
  • Guiding and making architectural decisions to enable the building of efficient and reusable
    services, APIs, and complex web and mobile applications
  • Being accountable for your team creating software features that are robust, reliable, and user-friendly for both internal teams and our customer base
  • Continuously improving the full software development lifecycle – problem definition, design, development, testing, demoing and supporting production use of the features you own
  • Supporting live-site operations, on-call engineering, and leading incident response
  • Balancing immediate business objectives against long-term architectural vision

Extra Awesome if you are:

  • A fan of the speed of startups, having worked at one or more (including maybe your own) before
  • Familiar with modern open source technologies like: Next.js (Express.js/React), Tailwind UI,
    Flutter, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, Docker
  • Experienced in developing, monitoring, and maintaining web/microservices, REST APIs, and
    supporting the mobile & web apps that interface with said APIs, on AWS (or similar)

  • Do great work that matters, in healthcare, for customers who could really use your help
  • Zero commute. Work wherever you are, globally (but on or around US Pacific Time hours)
