Kyruus is dedicated to its mission to make healthcare work better for everyone by connecting people to the care they need.  This role will be in our HealthSparq team as we work on simplifying the complex healthcare landscape. Together, we’ll improve the lives of our users by helping them to make better healthcare choices.
First and foremost, the Kyruus HealthSparq team cares deeply about our vision to enable human beings to care for human beings, our mission, and our CORE values: ● Caring – We care about doing the right thing, in the right way, every time. ● Ownership – We own both our successes and our mistakes, taking responsibility and always learning how to be better. ● Respect – We respect and celebrate the individual traits that enable each of us, our customers, our providers, and our patients, to be the best that we can be. ● Empowerment – We embrace a culture that supports everyone’s ability to contribute and lead. Here’s what that would mean for you in the Engineering Manager I role.


  • You’ll execute on the mission and vision by leading the development, delivery, and support sections of the product or process, partnering with the product owners to establish the feature priorities and roadmap to help meet the team’s business objectives. You’ll manage software development teams while maintaining accountability for the outcome of the work of one or two functional teams.

  • You’ll have a thorough knowledge of general principles of project management and software development lifecycles.
  • Define team needs and team staffing strategies.
  • Instrument your services with appropriate monitoring and alerting, taking full operational ownership of your team’s services.


  • How You'll Use Your Professional Skills:
  • You’ll use your 5+ years’ experience in software and programming, and at least 2 of the years as a manager to:
  • Gain trust and respect of customers, co-workers, and direct reports by demonstrating a high level of integrity, innovation, courage, and dependability.
  • Demonstrate a deep understanding in software development methodologies and theory.
  • Evaluate software performance using Big O notation and can mentor other team members to do the same.
  • Share your deep understanding of SOA design, Web services, Microservice architectures, and cloud-based solutions.
  • Leverage any experience in leading teams moving from a monolithic to a microservice architecture in order to add additional value.

  • You’ll use your management and leadership skills to:
  • Hold employees accountable for achieving their departmental goals and meeting performance objectives.
  • You develop and maintain effective and positive relationships with all business partners, from department leads to entry-level employees.
  • Create an inclusive environment where your direct reports and peers feel motivated to succeed.


  • How You’ll Know You’re Succeeding
  • You are comfortable making decisions that directly impact the product(s) and team(s).
  • You can solve difficult problems that the team has in an efficient manner.
  • You establish appropriate working relationships with existing and new strategic vendors, deriving the maximum value from negotiated contracts for technology services and products.

  • Where You’ll Go From Here
  • Individuals in the Engineering Manager I role can move in a more linear career path to an Engineering Manager II position (overseeing larger teams and development commitments on the roadmap).
  • Kyruus also loves to see an internal transfer. If a linear career path is not what you’re looking for, you can work with your manager and HR to explore lateral moves to other parts of the organization as you continue to grow with us.
