Healthcare costs and inefficiencies are one of the largest problems facing the United States, and improving healthcare quality can affect humanity on a global scale. If you want to join a small team of data experts look no further.


As Head of Engineering, you will be the leading voice on engineering-related decision making.

The Role:

  • Leadership - Demonstrated leadership of both products and teams, including strategy and mentorship

  • Ownership - Proven track record of reliably delivering high-quality results without supervision, both individually and as a team

  • Full-stack web - experience building data-driven single-page-applications (React preferred) and the back-end APIs that power them

  • Data management - experience moving large quantities of data through a multi-stage pipeline

  • Dev Ops - Familiarity with basic software infrastructure, including AWS and container management (e.g., Docker, Kubernetes)

  • Security - Understand the principles of securing and managing sensitive data; background with HIPAA or other protected data a plus

  • Communication - Able to effectively communicate technology strategy to the executive team and across roles within the company.
