In this role, you would be responsible for untangling challenges, developing solutions supporting children and providers in the foster care system, and getting engineers aligned and motivated towards building the code needed. This is an individual contributor role, with a strong sense of leadership and ownership desired and the ability to “scale yourself” by helping every member of the team surface and work within best practices.
