Are you a tech enthusiast with a passion for building and leading high-performing teams?

As the Manager of Software Engineering, you will play a key role in realizing this vision by leading a cross-functional team of incredible engineers in developing the next vision of our flagship applications.

Our CareKinesis team is laser focused on ensuring our patients receive personalized, optimized care through the safe use of medications, and we have a proven track record of reducing falls, reducing ER visits, and improving the quality of life for our patients.  As we enter the next stage of our growth, we’re significantly revamping our systems to improve our reach and serve more patients.  Your team will be applying Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML) and Large Language Model (LLM)systems, delivering value through automation, low-code, and serverless technology while carefully balancing the tradeoffs between tried-and-true technology vs the latest breakthroughs.
