One Concern is a Menlo Park-based benevolent artificial intelligence company with a mission to save lives and livelihoods before, during, and after disasters. Founded at Stanford University, One Concern enables cities, corporations and citizens to embrace a disaster-free future, through AI-enabled technology, policy, and finance. By combining data science and natural phenomena science we are pursuing a vision for planetary-scale resilience, where everyone lives in a safe, equitable, and sustainable world.

One Concern is growing rapidly and we are looking for passionate, motivated, and high-reaching engineers to join our team. Our engineering challenges are unique, so you should be comfortable in uncharted territory and excited to create systems that can support cities of 100,000 and 10 million people alike.

We are looking for a driven and entrepreneurial Engineering Manager to lead One Concern's platform engineering teams.

You will be focused on building scalable systems that power global resilience products. You will drive the technology roadmap and prioritize in conjunction with the Product Managers, Business partners and Data Science teams so you should have a good vision around both technology intricacies and product experience.

You’ll oversee a talented team of engineers, and help them to pursue their passion and transform their careers. Your growth will come from building strong leaders to whom you can effectively delegate, mentoring for peak performance, defining clear roles and accountability, communicating clear priorities and maximizing cross-organizational alignment. Your long-term success will come not from a “command and control” style, but from “inspire and empower.”
