You will need to develop a deep understanding of the data and drive efforts to maintain and improve data quality and usability. You should understand the importance and value of writing maintainable, documented, and well-tested code throughout the entire product lifecycle. Above all, you should be curious about what is possible in healthcare with the right tools and infrastructure.

  • Degree in computer science or related field
  • 5 years of experience building and maintaining data pipelines and data assets
  • 3 years of experience with distributed data processing frameworks such as Spark, Hive, and MapReduce
  • 5 years of programming experience, preferably in Python, following best practices
  • 5 years of demonstrated knowledge of data management best practices
  • 3 years of experience with ETL
  • 5 years of experience with leading data engineering projects and mentoring colleagues

  • Experience with search engines (Elasticsearch, Solr)

  • Experience with cloud-based computing (AWS, Azure)

  • Experience with Scala, in particular with Spark Scala API

  • Familiarity with EHR data and standards (HL7, FHIR)

  • Experience with HBase or other non-relational data bases

  • Experience with explaining, educating, presenting and/or training non-engineers on engineering concepts and processes

  • Strong prioritization skills; ability to manage ad-hoc requests in parallel with ongoing projects

  • Attention to detail, intellectual curiosity, collaborative attitude and strong communication skills
