We Are Real.

Real is a venture-backed mental health care company based in New York City. We’re a team of innovators, clinicians, and technologists on a mission to make caring for our mental health a priority. We're redesigning mental healthcare through a digital platform and in-person experience, integrating empathy, design, and progressive care to build the most elevated end-to-end mental healthcare experience, while also improving the quality of care itself. We’re not simply “normalizing” mental health care, we’re celebrating it.

We’re looking for a Software Engineering Manager who is passionate about mental wellness.

The Software Engineering Manager will lead, support, and grow Real’s platform engineering team. The ideal candidate is passionate about cultivating talent and growing teams in the engineering space. They are excited to foster individual and team successes as well as work cross-functionally with product peers to deliver quality products to Real’s members. The Software Engineering Manager will report to the CTO.

  • Strong organizational and facilitation skills to ensure all team members are aligned and able to execute effectively.

(...which are synonymous, you know).

When deciding what benefits should look like at Real, we started by thinking long and hard about what employees need not only to work well, but to live well. Benefits impact how we act, rest, grieve, set boundaries, and take care of ourselves and others — and that means quality benefits are a fundamental part of not just a mentally well company, but a mentally well society. At Real, we want to offer our employees more than just "permission" to occasionally take a vacation or comp a therapy session. We want to give them the support and autonomy they need to feel well and maintain full lives outside of work.

Payout

  • Competitive salary, plus equity in an early-stage startup. Emphasis on “plus”—we won’t use equity to low-ball you.

Healthcare for Full-Time Employees: 

  • 100% company-funded health, vision, and dental insurance. That means no monthly premiums coming out of your paycheck. 
  • FSA plans
  • Free One Medical membership
  • Free Real membership
  • $1800 annual mental wellness stipend you can put toward therapy, psychiatry, and other mental wellness services
  • Short- and long-term disability coverage
  • Life insurance

Retirement for Full-Time Employees

  • 401(k) — we don’t match yet, but you’ll thank us for the compound interest later.

Vacation

  • Unlimited PTO…that we actually encourage you to take, we promise.

Rest

  • Quarterly company-wide week off — because sometimes, unplugging is easiest when everyone else is offline, too.
  • Four-week paid sabbatical after five continuous years of work at Real.

Floating Holidays

  • Three floating holidays in addition to company-wide federal holidays so you can celebrate what’s important to you.

Grief Break

  • Real employees receive two weeks of paid time off in the event of losing a loved one. We know grief doesn’t have an end date, and we also know that “unlimited PTO” isn’t enough for most people to actually take ample time away from work. We want to support the process of grieving by naming this, and offering employees the opportunity to grieve without thinking of work.

Parenthood

  • Competitive paid parental leave and flexible return to work policy.

Autonomy

  • Flexible working environment — if you want to exercise at three PM, go for it.
  • Remote-inclusive team — whether you work from Colorado or NYC, you’re 100% part of the team.
  • Autonomous work culture. We don’t have to see a green dot on Slack to trust that you’re doing your job.

Growth at Work

  • We invest in your career. Our company's growing quickly, and we'll give you the opportunity to do the same. You'll have access to a number of professional development opportunities so that you can keep up with the company's evolving needs and grow your career along the way.
