At Alma, we’re making it easier for people to access high quality, affordable mental health care by supporting providers in building thriving private practices. We believe that when therapists have better resources, they’re able to provide better care to their clients. When a provider joins Alma, they gain access to a suite of tools that not only help them better run their business, but also grow it sustainably and develop as a provider. Our product experience is designed to empower people in their search for mental health care, offering multiple pathways and individualized support, if and when someone needs it. Alma has raised funding from incredible investors like Insight Partners, Optum Ventures, Tusk Venture Partners, Primary Venture Partners, and First Round Capital, and was named one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies in Health in 2020.

We are looking for our first Director of Engineering to join our team and help drive Alma’s technology strategy. As a member of the Engineering leadership team and reporting to the CTO, this person will lead engineering efforts for all Alma’s applications and will be responsible for helping to build scalable products, teams, and processes. 

The Director of Engineering will lead a team of strong Engineering Managers and help guide them in the growth and expansion of their teams, all the while standardizing best practices across the organization.  This role will also partner closely with the Director of Product to define and implement a progressive product strategy that propels Alma to national expansion.

The ideal candidate must have technical and operational chops working across teams to achieve objectives and execute projects, especially as the organization considers new products and categories.

  • Grow and develop an incredible team of hardworking and motivated Engineers and Engineering Managers who have high expectations around individual ownership and impact.
  • Set goals and direction for the team, anticipating strategic and company scaling challenges via thoughtful long-term planning. 
  • Partner with product managers, designers, and other stakeholders to ensure your team is prioritizing and delivering value to Alma members.
  • Engage and lead in the end-to-end recruiting process, hiring, and onboarding engineering talent to grow and scale the team.
  • Engage with the Product/Engineering Team to help craft technical and product strategy.

Who you are:

  • You have 7-10 years of engineering experience, with 4+ years of combined tech leadership and people management.
  • You’ve previously led and/or managed a team of 3 or more Engineering Managers or Team Leads.
  • You are a coach, a mentor, and an advocate to individual contributors of different seniority levels and expertise.
  • You are willing to jump into the code to understand, contribute and/or troubleshoot technical issues.
  • You possess a clear and engaging communication style with a track record of building positive relationships across a broad diverse organization.
  • You can comfortably communicate technical details with people outside of engineering.

An Insider's view of Alma

What projects are you most excited about?

We're all feeling the world starting to take mental wellness more seriously but it is still a space fraught with confusion & lack of understanding. It's exciting to think about the opportunities for innovation when it comes to helping people find the perfect therapist, simplifying access & affordability in a space that has been difficult to enter.

Nick

Chief Technology Officer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Alma has given me the trust, autonomy, and support to lead the Growth Team while consistently challenging me to evaluate the impact of all strategic decisions on the business both in the short-term and long-term. The opportunity to learn and grow is continuous as I work alongside passionate experts.

Ashley

VP, Growth

What is your vision for the company?

Mental health care is a very intimate and highly personal experience. There's no one-size-fits-all approach to high-quality care. At Alma, our job is to support providers and champion their expertise so they can focus on meeting clients where they are and partnering with them to achieve lasting results.

Dr. Harry Ritter

Founder and CEO

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

To be creative requires time to think big and trust from your manager to be brave in making big ideas happen. If weeks are frenetic with zero time for deep thinking, inertia will get in the way of innovation every time. And when big, bold bets come to the table, I emphasize that whether we succeed or fail, our learnings will be equally valuable.
