Lead Data Architect

Our challenge is to bring together complex diagnostic and treatment information to intelligently for healthcare professionals that improves patient care. If you want to be a part of revolutionizing the healthcare industry, join us to put your touch on it!

We have built the foundation with a micro-services based architecture hosted in AWS, integration with electronic health records systems, and a continuous delivery pipeline. We are looking to scale this to support a portfolio of products and integrate with a multitude of healthcare information systems.

This role will work closely with the platform architect, product architects, and engineering leadership to drive innovation, both in architecture and in supporting advanced data analysis. This role requires breadth across engineering disciplines, and depth in data modeling, database technology and medical data representation systems. It also requires a proven track-record in leading development of new cloud-based products in healthcare.
