At Turquoise Health we’re working to make surprise healthcare bills a thing of the past by building software to make pricing clearer, simpler and lower cost. 

We’ve built a fully-remote and highly collaborative team of multi-talented folks who share a passion for solving tough problems - and few would argue that our current healthcare billing system is an extremely tricky problem. 

We are looking for an experienced Engineering Manager to join the product organization in our engineering team and lead a team of full-stack developers. As a small, geographically-distributed, autonomous team, our engineers have an outsized impact on the growth and direction of Turquoise Health. We work heavily with the following technologies:

  • Python3, Django 3.x, and a wide range of Python libraries
  • SQL databases, specifically Postgres including features like Full Text Search
  • Data warehousing and processing tools like Amazon Redshift and Apache Airflow
  • Open source web infrastructure components, like memcached and Redis
  • Cloud environments, including AWS and Heroku
  • Large data sets and Airflow pipelines, crunching TBs of private healthcare data every day
  • A range of machine learning tools, which we use to process and enhance our data

As you would be working for a Series B start-up, your role would be wide-ranging. One day you might be coaching a developer through a building new features for the website, but the next day you might be tracking down data flows across pipelines and varying infrastructure looking to inject new aggregations. You would get to work with a wide range of exciting tools to find pragmatic solutions to challenging real-world problems. You would be able to leverage what you already know while having the opportunity to learn new things constantly.

We strongly encourage BIPOC, people with disabilities, and LGBTQIA+ folks to apply for any open roles of interest. Building a truly diverse team is a challenge that we do not shy away from. Healthcare affects all people differently, but it significantly affects those in underserved communities. With a robust, diverse team, we are stronger and better equipped to change the future of healthcare for all.

  • Regularly give feedback to engineers of all skill levels
  • Partner with cross-functional stakeholders 
  • Keep a keen eye for detail on the features your team ships

What you bring to the Engineering Manager role:

  • 2+ years experience people managing a team of developers 
  • 5+ years work experience in Python, or strong experience in a similar programming language and some exposure to Python
  • Experience in at least one popular Python web framework (preferably Django) or a similar popular web framework in another language (like Ruby or Rails)
  • Good understanding of SQL and how to efficiently use databases to solve problems
  • Familiarity with front-end technologies, modern JavaScript frameworks, build tools, HTML and CSS 
  • Familiarity with Agile methodologies
  • Strong leadership skills, with the ability to motivate and mentor team members to deliver high-quality work, and the ability to develop future leaders to scale your leadership

We're eager to find ambitious and well-rounded teammates to join us on this mission.
