Website Modern Fertility

Want kids one day?

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 ensuring we are prioritizing engineering excellence in everything we build. 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. This includes both tangible at-home testing kits and personalized digital tools (you can see a sneak peek of the logged in web experience here, and download our iOS app here). We have a unique opportunity to expand research and insights in reproductive health using data and under the hood, we are building personalized, data-driven systems from the ground up to make this happen. In this role, you will be a key driver in solving these challenges.

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, cross functional environment and share our passion for allowing all people with ovaries the access they need to reproductive health information.
  • You have at least 2 years mentoring and/or formally managed other engineers. You value engineering excellence, welcome feedback, and love to learn. You get energy from working closely with a team.
  • You have strong Python/Javascript skills and experience with modern libraries and frameworks (our apps span web and mobile — we work in Python/Django/React on web and native iOS on mobile).
  • You are comfortable configuring and managing several of the most popular AWS tools.
  • You have excellent written and verbal 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.
