Director of Application Development

Sierra ITS - Chicago, IL4.5


Technology and Healthcare - Combine them into one career opportunity and get ready for a heck of a ride.

Sierra ITS has been engaged by a Chicago company that over the last five years has reinvented how healthcare is delivered to a niche (and growing) segment of our society. From their HQ in the West Loop, they have disrupted old-school healthcare models and experienced explosive (and healthy) growth each year. They've built in-house custom software systems and applications that drive this growth and now it's time for Sierra to introduce them to their first ever Director of Application Development.

Enough recruiter are the facts:

  • Full time, permanent position with (legit) salary, bonus, benefits, perks, flexibility
  • Manage 10 direct reports (Devs and BA)
  • Microsoft stack, MVC, SAAS, Agile/Scrum
  • Web and mobile application architecture/design
  • No hands-on coding, but able to jump in on code/arch/design review if needed
  • New position, reporting to CTO
  • Fast pace, big brains, good times

You'll bring at least seven years of overall experience with at least 5 of them in a management or leadership capacity for a fast-paced software dev team. You'll be a MS expert since you came up thru the dev ranks...and you are just as good at writing an executive summary as you are writing code. You may have been through a start-up...but you definitely have chops when it comes to fast-paced and aggressive environments.

Ready for the ride?

Local (Chicago area) candidates only, no third parties please.
