About Alto

We’re building a new kind of pharmacy to cure one of our healthcare system’s most startling ills: over 50% of prescriptions are never picked up. Because staying on track with doctor’s orders requires more than just delivering pills, we’re managing everything from insurance logistics to pricing, late-night questions to supply chain, and anything else that could stand in the way of effective treatment. Our more than 400 employees are dedicated to fulfilling medicine’s true purpose: to improve the quality of life for everyone who needs it. We’ve filled over 1 million prescriptions to date. To aid our calling, we’ve raised $354 million in funding, and we’re on track to achieve $1 billion in annual recurring revenue (ARR) by 2021. Join us as we prove just how much a pharmacy can deliver.

As an Engineering Manager at Alto, you will manage a team of 6-8 engineers. You will use your strong communication and people skills to grow and develop the team, as well as cultivate cross-collaboration with Product Management, Design, and Operations. You will ensure your team has the bandwidth to tackle ambitious goals without compromising quality or sanity. Alto Engineers put the patient and user experience first, own projects from end to end, and are problem solvers. Your role as Engineering Manager is to support your team and enable them to do their best work.

For your first 1-2 months, you’ll familiarize yourself with our tech stack, engineering processes, and codebase to learn how everything connects together. You will ship small features to Alto’s products and be “on the ground” to understand the challenges and skills needed to be successful as an Alto Engineer. You’ll also shadow our Pharmacy Operations, Patient Care, and Fulfillment Teams to understand Alto from every perspective. At the end of this time, you will have shown strong technical judgment on several projects, fostered cross-team collaboration, and brought your unique experience to Alto with thoughtfulness. These initial weeks familiarize you with Alto holistically and earn you credibility as a leader with your colleagues.

  • Develops and empowers your team through consistent and honest feedback (we love radical candor), career planning, and performance reviews. You are a mentor and coach!

  • Run weekly 1:1s and team meetings, mentor engineers, and conduct code reviews.
  • Contribute to Alto’s product and technical roadmaps.
  • Work with other leadership to develop new initiatives and improve existing processes across the entire engineering team.

  • Have 4+ years of industry experience writing production code.
  • Are familiar with several programming languages and web frameworks like Ruby on Rails, Javascript, React, React Native, Go, or Python.
  • Have 3+ years of engineering management experience with a strong record of shipping.
