Open positions

Technical Lead - Software Development

About Toyon
At Toyon Associates, we are redefining the hospital reimbursement function through the ongoing development of our proprietary software. Our industry-leading Absolute® software products provide unprecedented accuracy and efficiency, providing valuable insight for health systems across the country. We are committed to building simple and clean applications, breaking down the barriers of government reimbursement and compliance.

What You Will Do
We are hiring a Technical Lead to work with a group of developers on our hospital finance SaaS applications. These applications break down complex hospital reimbursement processes into simple actions for the end-user. Your design and code will have a direct impact on helping hospitals across the country.

As Technical Lead, you’ll be organizing and directing a team of 2-3 developers in a technical capacity. You’ll be working with product owners to gather requirements and use cases. From these, you’ll design the software with an object-oriented approach. You’ll relate the design to other developers in the team via UML diagrams and documentation, encouraging collaboration in the process. You’ll coach up the other developers and review their code. Though a lead, you will still be connected to code and actively contribute to the code base where needed.

Toyon has offices in northern and southern California, with the development team based in Concord, CA. While we like to meet in person once a week, this position can also be fully remote. We put an emphasis on work/life balance; we work to get the job done rather than putting in hours. Toyon has a solid customer base that is still growing in a niche market and has strong and supportive leadership.

Whom We are Looking for
We are looking for people who are excited to make a positive impact through technology, are eager to learn, are knowledge-sharers, and approach their work and others with humility.

You’ll have at least 5 years’ experience as an engineer, but we are more interested in what you have done. We’d love to hear about projects you have worked on and the challenges and successes involved.

Ideally, you’ll have full-stack development experience involving objected-oriented design, PHP, JavaScript, Vue, SQL, GraphQL or similar technologies. Motivated individuals who can learn and apply knowledge can be more important than an exact tech stack match. We value the perspective and insight that can come from different tech experience.

Mentoring and knowledge transfer are important for the role. Clear and frequent communication (both written and via video calls) and a desire to see improvement in others are key. Interest in growing towards the management path at Toyon is a plus.

Ability to pass background check and eligible to work in the US (work visa sponsorship not available).

What We Offer You
Toyon Associates offers a competitive salary, eligibility for yearly performance bonus, and comprehensive benefit package as well as generous vacation and paid holidays, including a complete office closure at year-end. Toyon is experiencing rapid growth and offers a great opportunity for career advancement and mobility. Toyon Associates has a solid foundation with over 35 years of expertise in the hospital reimbursement industry and is committed to innovative applications of technology for continued success.

How to Apply
Send us your resume along with a few paragraphs telling us why you’d like to work here and what Toyon would be like with you as a part of it. Please also tell us about any similar projects or experience you’ve had. Please send your resume and letter of interest to
