Canvas Medical

San Francisco, CA, USA
Posted on Sunday, September 10, 2023
Canvas Medical is the electronic medical records (EMR) and payments development platform for healthcare. We build modern, elegant front- and back-end tooling to enable new ways for developers and clinicians to collaborate to solve healthcare’s toughest challenges. Canvas is institutionally backed by some of the greatest technology investors in the world (funded notable health tech companies such as GoodRx, Oscar Health, and Hims & Hers Health).
The Role
Are you ready to lead the team building the platform to transform healthcare? We’re looking for an engineering manager with a passion for building tools that enable developers to rapidly build products and accelerate their ability to deliver impact. Our ideal candidate is a seasoned engineering leader with strong product acumen, proven ability to deliver team impact, subject matter expertise in developer tooling, and determination to make healthcare data-driven, patient-centric, and personalized at scale by empowering clinicians.
Who We Are
We are a tight-knit group with diverse backgrounds, deeply committed to our mission and our users. We believe that healthcare can serve everyone in the US more effectively and our role in doing that is to give caregivers superpowers with software. We strive to be humble, hungry, and smart — both people-smart and problem-smart. We believe success comes from optimizing for the whole, and we welcome everyone’s ideas to the table. We focus on intentional growth so we can expand our skills and apply them to accomplish new goals. We are dedicated to helping each other be our best.
Who You Are
You have experience managing engineers of various skill levels in a growth company and apply your technical and people skills to remove roadblocks and coach others to overcome challenges. You have experience building platforms or developer tools from the ground up. You instill quality, scalability, and reliability into engineering products by developing and improving software development processes. You have a deep understanding of your team’s people and practices and apply that knowledge to guide planning and execution. You are a clear communicator and strong cross-functional collaborator who helps develop high-impact, company-level solutions.
What Success Looks Like at 90 Days
Customers are utilizing the seven modules of the unified Canvas SDK (a Python package) to drive and control the care delivery experiences that generate results for their patients and clinicians. Our customers’ developers are able to quickly iterate on care models in partnership with clinicians through a singular developer experience for the Canvas SDK and robust developer friendly documentation helps guide them.
