The Nitty Gritty
The backstory on the organization and why they need to hire you!
This company’s mission is to advance new medical treatments and medication options globally by recruiting patients for clinical research studies. It continues to be one of the fastest-growing companies in New York, having doubled in size this last year, while also expanding its service line and revenue stream. In response to this rapid evolution, they’re looking for a polyglot engineer (who’s also a fantastic manager) to help shape the company’s future direction.
As Lead Software Engineer, you will have a direct impact on software operations as the company upgrades their software offerings for patients, clinical research study sites, and research sponsors. You will lead and manage the product support engineering team, including maintenance, security fixes and reports, related DevOps, and issue resolutions. You’ll actively participate in design sessions and code reviews that elevate the quality of engineering across the organization. This is a very hands-on role that requires you to have a strong voice and effectively mentor and manage engineers. So, if you like to model proper coding techniques and coach others to do the same, then this is the job for you.
P.S. The benefits include competitive compensation, great health insurance, PTO, life insurance, state-of-the-art office space, extensive job training, team-building activities throughout the year, and a positive work environment that fosters ongoing professional growth.
