Careers that Change Lives
Our Health Applications Team develops real-time connected solutions that help diabetes patients live their lives better every day, and that also enable their health care providers to deliver care from anywhere in the world, at any time.
We create and support health applications and data systems that enable enterprise web applications for diagnostics & therapy analytics and also remote with real-time alerting. Building these distributed, integrated systems is hard, and we need experienced engineering leaders to formulate the right strategies that are both rigorous and also efficient. We release medical device software at the "speed of consumers", a unique challenge that we find extremely rewarding.
The SW Engineering Manager is the key leadership role in our team for owning the creation and delivery of these applications. You are both a people leader and a technical leader who will expand our engineering competencies, grow execution scale and build rock-solid applications for stringent medical therapy needs. Your team includes full-time and contract personnel in our California business headquarters, along with remote teams in other geographies. As a performance manager, you guide and mentor to create a collaborative and customer-focused engineering culture.
Our technologies leverage latest-generation rich client UIs on Angular/Typescript, back-end services on both Java/J2EE and highly scaled platforms on AWS. We utilize advanced authentication and security techniques required for communicating sensitive health data. Our automation frameworks include Selenium, Cucumber, ReadyAPI/SoapUI, LoadRunner, JMeter, and much more.
This is a unique opportunity to apply your best technical innovation, problem solving and leadership skills to truly make a difference in our health and well-being.
