About Carrot:

Carrot Fertility is the leading global fertility benefits provider for employers and health plans, built to support employees through their lifelong fertility healthcare journey. Companies use Carrot to customize a fertility benefit that provides employees financial, medical, and emotional support as they pursue parenthood, reducing healthcare costs and resulting in better clinical outcomes.

The Role

We’re on the hunt for the next member of the Product Engineering Team. Carrot is constantly working to improve on processes, quality, and techniques, with the goal of producing the best product in the industry. Every step towards our mission means more people forming the family they always wanted.

What does “tech lead” mean at Carrot?

At Carrot, tech lead is an assignment, not a title. The title is still Senior Software Engineer. For more complex projects, we understand the value of assigning a senior engineer with owning the execution plan and being responsible for keeping the project smooth. To learn more, our mentality aligns well with Will Larson’s write-up here as a path towards a Staff Engineer.

About Us

  • We’re empowered to make local decisions, reducing the overhead of getting things done.
  • We favor a Lean approach to our product development, following the parts of agile that work best for us.
  • We welcome new technologies and are constantly self-evaluating our tools.
  • We use weekly retrospectives and empowerment to help iterate on our team processes.
  • We are a highly collaborative group promoting pair programming whenever possible.

About You

  • You have 5+ years of post grad software engineering experience.
  • You view software engineering as a craft and welcome the opportunity to share knowledge with fellow enthusiasts.
  • You care deeply about building the best experience for our users and making an impact in their lives.
  • You find learning new tech and patterns exciting and love experimenting.
  • You understand the balancing game an engineer has to play weighing new feature development with technical debt.
  • A blank piece of paper doesn’t scare you. You are excited to design products from the ground up.
  • You take pride in our mission: fertility care for all.

You Will

  • Implement code throughout our tech stack.
  • Help develop the direction of our product.
  • Work with teammates throughout Carrot in order to build the optimal product.
  • Contribute to the big picture as well as make many in-the-moment micro-decisions in the best interest of our customers.
  • Influence the engineering direction of Carrot.

Our Tech Stack

Carrot is built mainly with React and .NET Core. We’re interested in people from any background as long as you have a keen understanding of Object-Oriented languages and MVC experience.

An Insider's view of Carrot Fertility

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

As a new mom in sales, I was anxious to return from leave but Carrot has been incredible! I’ve been encouraged to create a schedule that fits my needs, allows me to be successful at work and present for my family. We’re encouraged to set our own working hours, take breaks, take time off and management leads by example. I love working at Carrot!


Mid Market Account Executive

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Scalability! As Carrot evolves, we want to empower the growth of our codebase & offer more features within our product. We are planning to migrate to a Microservice architecture to help decouple the addition & sustenance of domain complexities. With the saved time & resources, we can better help our members navigate their family forming journeys.


Product Engineer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

During my time at Carrot, I've had the great privilege of taking part in our rapid growth year after year. At the same time, I have been able to 10x my personal career growth. I feel that I am able to make an impact on Carrot's processes and culture every day, which motivates me to push the envelope towards my own career goals.


Engineering Manager

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I'm quick to call a brainstorming session. Being creative, to me, is simply considering new ways to do old things. I love getting the spreadsheet warriors on the whiteboard. They quickly get over any fears about "drawing", and I get the opportunity to understand how they communicate, and gain ideas from a new perspective.
