Role Description

VP of Engineering @ Cerebral (Mental Health Telemedicine Startup)

We’re a stealth mental health startup hiring a VP of Engineering who has experience making phenomenal web applications, from front-end to back.

As our VP of Engineering, you'll lead our product and engineering team - which includes both software engineers and a designer - as well as working closely with our co-founders in handling scale, improving product insights, and crafting the Cerebral experience.

Outside of the founders, this will be our first executive hire. This role might be a fit for you if any or all of these apply:

  • You implement beautiful component systems with precision and accuracy.

  • You are comfortable designing complex data models, APIs, and back-end architectures. You have experience working in React, Ruby on Rails, or .

  • You strive for easy deploys, peak performance, and continuous uptime. You love managing small teams of engineers, while simultaneously contributing to code.

  • And you build for easy diagnosability, just in case.

Requirements

  • You've done this before. You've got a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or a related field, or equivalent training or work experience.
  • You have 5+ years of full-time work experience in software engineering, with 2+ years of engineering management experience.
  • You enjoy and excel at managing projects and processes.
  • You've built a deep understanding of web frameworks, reactive paradigms, and component life cycles.
  • You have experience working in React and / or Ruby on Rails.
  • You have proven experience developing performant Javascript code and the ability to diagnose issues.
  • You've honed a detailed knowledge of AWS services, web development and debugging tools, and general deploy systems.
  • You've deployed and maintained apps using modern web technologies.
  • You love getting better at this. You want to always be improving your own work and your team's work.

Bonus Points

  • Our infrastructure is open. If you love dev-ops, strong opinions on deploy and scaling infrastructure would be appreciated.
  • If you've ever worked on a medical system, or you're comfortable with the handling sensitive medical data, you might be a phenomenal fit.
  • If you have any experience architecting early data-flow systems, it would be a huge plus.

About Us

Cerebral is a mental health startup that offers everything from the online diagnosis of depression and anxiety to at-home delivery of antidepressants - supplemented by ongoing medication and care management. We are moving quickly to build a community around destigmatizing mental health treatment by offering a broad array of treatment options for anxiety and depression.

Our two founders - Kyle and Anh - have both experienced first-hand the struggle of trying and failing to access treatment for depression - which motivated them to start Cerebral. Dr. Ho Anh was previously the Medical Director for Hims - where he managed 150 doctors - and Medical Group President for Lemonaid Health.

We are a lean, mission-driven team based in San Francisco.

We are backed by prominent angel investors and venture capitalists in Silicon Valley and are currently in a private beta, racing towards a public launch in Winter 2020.
