About the role

We’re looking for a Head of Engineering that wants to join us in our journey to innovate and digitize female healthcare. You will be part of a small but efficient inhouse tech team handling a mobile patient app, backend health care platform and public web.

In the role of Head of Engineering, you have ultimate responsibility for our technical platform. This means that you have a strategic and operational responsibility to further develop our platform in order to strengthen EsterCare's position on the market. We are remote-friendly, but the role is based at our office in Stockholm.


  • With the patient in focus, develop and be responsible for EsterCare's technical platform.

  • Leading and managing the engineering team while fostering a collaborative and high-performant culture.

  • Ensuring alignment with business objectives, regulatory compliance, and safety standards by collaborating closely with product management to ensure we're building products in the best way and delivering on the company’s strategy.

Technologies we use

The technical vision is to enable true full stack development. That means for example using TypeScript and Jest for all of our app, web and backend development, but also sharing business logic between codebases through private NPM packages.

We work in a structured setting with modern tools like Figma, Slack, Notion, Linear. No cumbersome legacy systems to maintain.

  • App: React-Native, Expo EAS, Redux-Toolkit, Jest.

  • Backend: Node.js (Express), Jest, Docker, Postgres and AWS with 100% infrastructure as code.

  • Web: Next.js, Vercel, Contentful.

Your profile

You have broad experience within software engineering and thrive in a small workplace with a wide range of responsibilities. You’re curious, like to learn and assume more responsibility in a growing organization. You have experience leading a team of developers and organizing work through agile processes. Experience in healthcare, med-tech or any regulation-heavy environment is meriting.

You’re looking for both a strategic and technical role - where you help guide the management team through the technical wilderness, but also immerse yourself in code-reviewing, architecture and solving technical problems yourself.

As the company is in a startup phase, it is important that you enjoy taking responsibility in a growing organization. It is therefore required that you have good communication and coordination skills. You need to be fluent in Swedish and English.


We are reviewing applications on a rolling basis. While the start date is flexible, the right candidate can join us immediately.
