Manager, Software Engineering (Core)

Chicago, IL, Minneapolis, MN, San Francisco, CA

Our Company is all about putting health back in the hands of the individual. Our real mission is to empower people with easy-to-use online and mobile tools that help them take charge of their health and health care, from improving their diet and fitness to selecting health benefits, and choosing the right doctor at the right price for their health needs.

At Rally Health we are viewed as an engineering driven company, where our technology is modern and agile. We host our microservices based distributed systems in the public cloud (AWS). Automated processes drive and maintain our quality at the highest level. Some key technologies used are: Scala, Play, Akka, MongoDB, PostgreSQL, Docker, Mesos, Marathon and Jenkins.

Our Core Services team is responsible for providing critical shared services to all products in the Rally ecosystem. Every product at Rally needs two things: identity (resolving who the member is) and authorization; (what the member is authorized for based on their benefits and coverage).

The team’s journey is to build a cohesive foundational platform for other teams to integrate on top of in order to provide a precise experience to users as they move across their healthcare journey. The team works on projects and code that impacts the entire company as well as insurance companies that Rally partners with.

The Core Services organization is looking for very motivated and self driven engineers who work best in a reciprocal environment delivering large and complex features motivated by our mission and business goals. You will work closely with Product Managers and Project Managers to understand features, do technical assessments, design, code, test and ship to production.

Does this sound interesting?

In this role, you will provide “thought leadership” and “technical guidance” to take the existing systems and applications to the next level as our business is undergoing high growth.  You will thoughtfully hire great engineers who complement the existing team. 

You will lead execution of projects and partner with various stakeholders in Engineering, Product and other teams as needed. We embrace Entrepreneurs as well as those who come from more established organizations. Software Engineering Leaders are clearly characterized by progressive technical experience and demonstrated progression in management responsibility.

In this role you will be keeping your technical skills sharp and bringing an unwavering passion for managing the dynamics of a fast-paced environment.
