Modern Fertility

Job description

Modern Fertility is looking for a hands-on leader who will act as a player-coach on our quickly growing team (currently 5 in engineering). We are looking for someone who is excited to mentor a group of high performing product engineers while maintaining your own technical chops, and ideally provide expertise in backend systems and infrastructure. In this role, you will have eyes on all pieces of the product — from building out our systems, to architecting future facing decisions, to writing and shipping code. You will collaborate closely with team members all across the company (product, marketing, ops — you name it) and be a key stakeholder in making cross-functional engineering decisions.

On the outside, we are delivering the products that people need to be proactive about their reproductive health. Under the hood, we are building personalized, data-driven systems from the ground up to make this happen — in this role, you will be directly involved in solving technical challenges that will allow us to make positive change in reproductive health.

If you are someone who is passionate about building meaningful products, want to have a high sense of ownership, and interested in maintaining individual impact while mentoring a team, we’d love to talk to you.

What gets us excited:

  • You thrive in a fast-paced environment and share our passion for allowing all people with ovaries the access they need to reproductive health information. 
  • You have 8+ years of experience building products in a fast-paced, cross-functional startup environment.
  • You have strong Python/Javascript skills and experience with modern libraries and frameworks (we are a Python/Django/React shop).
  • You are comfortable configuring and managing several of the most popular AWS tools.
  • You have mentored and/or formally managed other engineers. You also welcome feedback and love to learn. You get energy from working closely with a team.
  • You have excellent communication skills. 
  • You’re meticulously organized. It allows you to iterate quickly and respect deadlines. 
  • You have great perseverance and an iron-clad work ethic. You roll up your sleeves to do whatever needs to be done. 
  • You’re passionate about making reproductive health information more accessible for people everywhere.
  • We are based in San Francisco, but open to this person being based remotely.

About us:

Modern Fertility is a reproductive health company making personalized fertility information more accessible. We provide fertility hormone essentials, from at-home tests to digital tools and an online community, for anyone with ovaries — whether you’re trying for kids or not. Everything we develop is designed to give you more agency over your reproductive health, so you can own the decisions impacting your body and your future (whatever those decisions might be). 

We’ve raised $22 million from Forerunner Ventures, Maveron, Union Square Ventures, First Round Capital, Box Group, #Angels and Y Combinator. We believe in hard work and good people — and we know that if you have them both, you can do things that make the world a better place.

At Modern Fertility, we believe that our diverse perspectives are our biggest strengths — and that embracing them will create real change in reproductive health. As an equal opportunity employer, we are committed to building an inclusive environment where you can be you.
