  • Engineering Manager (Remote US/Canada)
    New York, NY | Full-Time, Remote

    Who We Are

    For more information about how our team thinks and operates, read our company Playbook.

    Why Are We Hiring?

    Our team is hiring Engineering Managers (EMs)to pair with junior engineers, work hand-in-hand with our Project Managers, and to provide subject matter expertise to clients throughout the lifecycle of our engagements with them. Our EMs help their teams manage workloads, prioritize tickets, and work through bugs and blockers on a daily basis. This role is critical to our Engineering team and to the continued growth and success of Lightmatter. 

    More About The Role

    As an EM at Lightmatter, you'll work directly with our CTO, Design team,  and other engineers on a variety of software projects covering different programming languages, frameworks, and application architectures. We treat EMs as half “lead developers” and half “people managers”. You’ll be supervising others while also doing some of the day to day work, which requires you to stay nimble and fluid. Generally, we build a team around an Engineering Manager: the EM communicates with clients, makes technical decisions, pairs with team members and reviews the teams pull requests. Think: less coding and more "everyone else is writing good code".

    Typical client work includes building any of the following: web and mobile apps, APIs, integrations with 3rd party tools, health-tech specific integrations, and digital transformation projects for enterprise clients.

    What You’ll Do For Us

    • With our CEO, Business Development team, Product Managers, and Project Managers, help Lightmatter accurately scope client work from a technical perspective. This includes participation in Sales calls as well as sprints and grooming sessions.
    • Help clients avoid over-engineering solutions.
    • Manage a “pod” of engineers (between 1-5 direct reports):
    • Enable their growth and success through mentorship, pairing, and offering development opportunities.
    • Motivate and coach through performance management, when needed, including if/when pod members are on Performance Improvement Plans.
    • Provide support through daily stand-ups and regular check-ins.
    • Help to unblock the team and solve technical problems.
    • Communicate direction and prioritization for junior team members, assist with deliverable roadmapping, and help to assign client work based on personality and technical expertise.
    • Participate in the hiring process for new Engineering talent.
    • Champion a best-in-class onboarding experience for new talent on your team, including training and performance evaluation.
    • Help your team ship code that works as expected, on schedule, and within budget.
    • Spend some time writing code, code review, de-bugging, as well as staying current on software updates and best practices. Occasionally lead a client project, pending Lightmatter’s staffing schedule.
    • Raise a red flag when a project needs some extra help.

    What You’ll Need to Be Successful

    • You have 5+ years working as a software engineer at another agency, a product-focused startup, or an enterprise company.
    • You have a demonstrated history of seeking out teaching opportunities, coaching, and mentoring your peers or (if you’ve been a manager before), direct reports.
    • Previous experience leading a project from conception to completion, with sole (or majority) responsibility for its success. 
    • You have spent some time freelancing independently, whether as a side hustle or full time. Almost everyone on our team has been an individual freelancer at one point, and understands the value of all the “work” outside of the actual deliverable for the client: excellent communication, professionalism, punctuality, and follow through.
    • You have zero ego with regards to your code, can both receive and offer feedback positively, and are willing to pair and help others developing software alongside you.
    • You're a self-starter. You're not afraid to take initiative but know when and how to check with others to ensure you're making the right decision. You can balance the technically correct and/or more elegant solution with what the client wants (which often differs) and can do this quickly.
    • You're not afraid to ship code! We don't care if it's not done yet. Push it up and get feedback!

    What We’ll Do For You

    • Competitive Salary & 401k Plan
    • Unlimited paid vacation and sick-leave. Team members can take what they need, when they need it. You even get a bonus if you meet our minimum annual PTO requirement.
    • Paid parental leave.
    • Exceptional healthcare coverage: Lightmatter pays 100% of your Dental and Vision premiums, as well as 50% of your Medical premiums.
    • Work remote or wherever you work best!
    • The best tech (laptops to create, headphones to flow, standing desks to stay healthy)
    • Flexible hours (for that midday nap, run, long lunch, reading session, or meditation)
    • Ongoing education because we like our people smart (no scrubs)
    • Our company does not offer equity as we’re not a venture backed startup. However, there’s the possibility in the future of profit sharing for our employees split at year’s end based on tenure.

    Lightmatter is proud to be an equal opportunity employer that is committed to diversity and inclusion in the workplace. We prohibit discrimination and harassment of any kind based on race, color, sex, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, genetic information, pregnancy, or any other protected characteristic as outlined by federal, state, or local laws. Lightmatter makes hiring decisions based solely on qualifications, merit, and business needs at the time.

  • Product Manager (Remote US/Canada)
    New York, NY | Full-Time, Remote

    Who We Are

    For more information about how our team thinks and operates, read our company Playbook.

    Why Are We Hiring?

    Our team is hiring Product Managers to help our clients build better products. At Lightmatter, we design and develop software for health, wellness, and HCIT companies, and many of these businesses need outside product expertise to build better experiences. 

    More About The Role

    Product Management is one of the most important roles at startup and technology companies. It requires strategic, independent thinking along with conviction about your opinions to be successful. 

    Joining our team guarantees exposure to a range of creative and technical problems, products, and companies. You will work with a cross-functional team to create web and mobile software applications for a variety of businesses in health & wellness, healthcare IT, non-profits, and more.

    Product Managers at Lightmatter manage the overall success of these engagements. They're responsible for leading scope definition and requirements gathering with clients during Discovery Sprints, creating software project roadmaps, and managing and eliminating ambiguity throughout engagements. Product Managers distill a large, long-term vision into simple, weekly goals for team members to accomplish. They maintain a sense of balance throughout a project, all while communicating this effectively to clients in a way that builds trust and delivers results. On our team Product Managers are not the same as Project Managers.

    Responsibilities You'll Be Tasked With

    • Lead Discovery Sprints with clients and other Lightmatter Product Managers at the beginning of client engagements. These are short, initial engagements with clients to better define their product and set strong foundations for continued work. 
    • Act as a Product Manager across on-going client projects after kickoff. Selectively advise multiple projects to guide our team and the client to a successful delivery. Work with Project, Design, and Engineering Managers to accomplish with this. 
    • Pair with Lightmatter designers or developers when assistance is needed. Ideally, you have a design or engineering background and can design (UX/UI) products or ship code. 
    • Own the process for starting new projects at Lightmatter by working with the Lightmatter sales team to begin engagements. Translate requirements into accurate timelines and roadmaps, reduce project ambiguity, and make appropriate product calls depending on the client's business model, platform, and constraints.

    What You'll Need To Be Successful

    • 3+ years working as a Product Manager at a health technology startup.
    • Ideally, but not required, 3+ years working as a Product Designer (UX/UI) or Software Engineer. We believe that the best Product Managers have hands-on experience building products. Without this, they become too removed from the realities and trade-offs teams face.
    • You've freelanced independently, whether as a side hustle or full time. Almost everyone on our team has been a freelancer at one point and understands the value of all the “work” outside of the actual deliverable for the client: excellent communication, professionalism, punctuality, and follow through.
    • You understand that companies of different sizes, industries, and markets have different Product needs. You’re aware of what a founder needs to launch an MVP, what a fast growing startup needs to extend their digital marketing and product footprint, and what an enterprise company needs as they consolidate their brand and move upmarket.
    • You have no ego with regards to your Product work. You take team and client feedback in stride and can articulate constructive responses.
    • You're comfortable designing something the client may want even if it's not exactly how you envisioned it at first.
    • You're excited to collaborate on a team and help others create Product alongside you.

    What We'll Do For You

    • Competitive Salary & 401k Plan
    • Unlimited paid vacation and sick-leave. Team members can take what they need, when they need it. You even get a bonus if you meet our minimum annual PTO requirement.
    • Paid parental leave.
    • Exceptional healthcare coverage: Lightmatter pays 100% of your Dental and Vision premiums, as well as 50% of your Medical premiums.
    • Work remote or wherever you work best!
    • The best tech (laptops to create, headphones to flow, standing desks to stay healthy)
    • Flexible hours (for that midday nap, run, long lunch, reading session, or meditation)
    • Ongoing education because we like our people smart (no scrubs)
    • Our company does not offer equity as we’re not a venture backed startup. However, there’s the possibility in the future of profit sharing for our employees split at year’s end based on tenure.
