Job Description

We are a 150+ person team funded by top-tier firms, based in Santa Monica, CA with satellite offices in San Francisco. We are a low-key but tight-knit group of hard-working people working to fix America's broken healthcare system. Americans spend over $400 billion per year on prescriptions and too many people simply can't afford the medications they desperately need. Join GoodRx and help us solve meaningful problems that help us make people's lives better every day.

About the Role

Our managers are not only strong technical experts and technical leaders, but they also manage a highly motivated team of engineers. In this role, you will not only lead, manage, and inspire engineering teams in creating and delivering products but you will be involved in solving challenging technical problems. You will be responsible for managing project goals, contribute to frontend product strategy, lead software architecture design, and help develop and grow the team. You should have strong communication skills, both within the engineering teams and with the stakeholder across the various projects you will interact with. If you have a strong technical background, are interested in all the challenges of people leadership, and love engineering optimizing for numbers; you might make a great fit for this position.


* Build out an exceptional team through a combination of training, career development, recruiting, and process improvement
* Partner with senior engineers to define the next generation architecture for the front end team, including identifying gaps in the existing system and designing alternatives that are scalable, robust and easy to maintain
* Lead by example and help other engineers with their projects e.g. outline and architect out big problems. You are not expected to take on any critical path projects, but you will help your team with the development of theirs.
* Set clear expectations and foster a positive work environment based on accountability, collaboration and career development
* Identify and resolve process bottlenecks and thoughtfully implement processes that enhance the team's code quality and customer impact
* Own your team's deliverables and ensure we continue to ship scalable, highly-available products
* Be a helpful and supportive presence on the team, contributing to code reviews and technical architecture discussions

Skills & Qualifications:

* 6+ years of Front end experience working with Javascript
* 5+ years of work experience architecting, developing, and launching software products and/or services.
* 3+ years working with React, Angular, Vue, or similar Javascript framework.
* 4+ years of technical leadership, people management experience, and engineering management experience
* Familiar and comfortable with the technologies, the tradeoffs, and the design patterns emerging in web services
* Attention to detail, passion for UX and design, excellent problem solving skills, and great communication skills
* A quick learner, a self-starter, able to work independently, and you're able to handle the pressures of an increasing level of responsibility
* Experience with iterative design and working with cross functional teams
* Comfort with data analytics, testing tools, and A/B testing methodology
