Company Overview

Transforming antiquated organizations and slow-moving bureaucracies is exactly what League’s founders are known for. For them, no industry is too big to shake up. Now together, they are taking on one of the biggest global markets today—health insurance—and turning it on its head.

Job Description

League is the digital alternative to traditional health insurance. Led by serial entrepreneur and Kobo founder Michael Serbinis, we are bringing much-needed innovation to the stagnant health care industry. League enables employers to give employees access to health and wellness spending accounts, flexible and cost-effective group insurance plans and workplace health services, all through our website and mobile apps. Our mission is to help people live healthier, happier lives every day.

We’re looking for an experienced Engineering Manager to lead one of our full stack development teams.

You will...

  • Collaborate with product and UX leads to plan features, clarify requirements, and influence our product roadmap
  • Drive productive technical design sessions and discussions, ensuring the right people are involved, and that decisions are well documented
  • Manage the growth and development of your team, e.g. regular 1:1s with team members, setting objectives, tracking career growth
  • Champion engineering best practices across the entire engineering organization
  • Take a leadership role in our recruiting, hiring, and onboarding processes


A bit about you:

  • You have experience leading and growing engineering teams

  • You have an appreciation for pragmatism and simplicity in code
  • You know how to focus on results, including communicating and solving problems as they arrive
