| Greater NYC Area

What You’ll Be Doing:

  • Working on problems that affect the lives of real people. Our users depend on us to make positive changes to their health and their lives.
  • Basing your work on scientifically-proven, peer-reviewed methodologies that are designed by medical professionals
  • Collaborating with a team both onsite and offsite -- about 50% of our engineering team is fully remote; we worry about results, not time spent in seats.

What We're Looking For:

  • You have experience dealing with APIs, services, and data at scale, processing and transforming hundreds of millions of transactions and data points on any given day.
  • You enjoy managing each team and project at the right level of detail, providing support and guidance without being afraid to get your hands dirty from time to time
  • You have a proven track record of growing engineering teams through great hires, fostering the creation of a harmonious culture, and finding the right intersection between expediency and best practice.
  • You’re a great mentor, and enjoy helping other engineers grow and realize their full potential.
  • You take your job very seriously, but you don’t take yourself too seriously!

What Makes This Job Amazing:

  • You’ll be helping millions of people lead healthier lives every day
  • You’ll be a part of Noom's rocketship-- revenue has grown 20x in the last 2 years and our team is growing fast.
  • You’ll have wonderful benefits including healthcare/dental, wellness budget, daily gourmet meals prepared by our onsite chefs, and onsite yoga
  • You’ll experience huge learning & professional growth opportunities. Noom believes in supporting your professional and personal growth: we’ll cover the cost of books, courses, conferences… you name it!
  • You’ll add to our transparent, high-performing, and close-knit culture

An Insider's view of Noom

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

When I first started at Noom, I’ll admit to a bit of skepticism, “Wouldn’t it be better to just receive more salary in lieu of these benefits?” In my first six months as an employee at Noom, I’ve seen (and taken advantage of) these benefits and can attest to the difference it makes on life both in and outside the office.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started at Noom eight years ago. It was my first real job out of college, and I’ve been fortunate to have held many positions since starting. Starting as Noom’s office administrator, I am now the product manager. Noom has supported my growth at every stage.

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

At Noom, rapid iteration isn’t limited to just features. For example, the way we conduct feedback. At most companies, feedback employees get is limited to performance reviews that come yearly or bi-yearly. We conduct weekly 1:1s with mentors, tech leads, and product managers—to get feedback on both our performance and help the company grow.
