The Digital Innovation Group (DIG) at Providence is a small but mighty product development and incubation team. We build next-gen tools that give patients convenient and easy access to health care anywhere, anytime.

DIG is both a healthcare startup and a technology/product incubator. Our team gathers market data on effective solutions in the health care space and then builds out a product line with the latest and greatest technology. When market maturity hits, DIG enables the product to spin out as its own company. It is a unique mix of venture capitalists, digital strategists, marketing acumen, product development and engineering all in one group nestled inside one of the largest health systems. We set the pace for other health care organizations around the country on how to conceive, engineer and launch effective health care solutions.

We are seeking a Manager, Software Engineering who will be responsible for incubating a revolutionary new greenfield consumer-based healthcare experience. You will own engineering for a mobile-focused full stack product vertical and work with a bright and multi-disciplinary team of product professionals and clinicians. We need someone who is technically fearless and able to take on bold challenges to improve healthcare.

  • Lead software engineering for a cross-platform mobile-focused patient and provider experience. You will be a hands-on leader writing code, defining product architecture, and defining what success looks like.

  • Promote a culture of diversity and equity through hiring and developing talent and delivering the right products that support these values.

In this position you will:

  • Lead engineering for a groundbreaking new consumer-focused mobile experience for patients and providers. This requires a relentless passion for innovation, where we propose hypotheses, evaluate outcomes, and commit to what works.

  • Own continuous improvement mechanisms for engineering including deployment, and verification.

  • Act as a role model and mentor for other engineers and actively grow their careers. You coach the team with “why” instead of “what” or “who”.

  • Hire and ensure the organization is setup for innovation, including identifying new technical capabilities required in the future and developing the team to meet that vision.
