Our Team:

We’re building our platform on top of a few core principles and technologies:


A single unified view of data. We bridge the gap between business and internal product teams by speaking a ubiquitous domain language. Exposing our domain model as a GraphQL API, our teams can consistently access data across the platform, ignoring the underlying details of how this data is stored. Event Streams as a Source of Truth. etc…)   

Your Mission:


Power smarter treatments and healthier people with innovative data analytic applications.

Develop advanced cloud (AWS) based data systems to extract, assess, integrate, transform, clean, analyze and visualize datasets for complex analytics and statistical modeling.

Create automated data flows for research and production settings with data science engineering best practices, transparency, and scalability.

Solve complex business questions where situations or data require in-depth evaluation of variable factors.

Assess analytical data sources, conduct hands-on exploration to determine their value, and make them available enterprise-wide.

Collaborate with data engineers, data scientists, software engineers, business leaders and cross-functional stakeholders to implement data science engineering solutions based on business priorities and technology initiatives.


Your Competencies:


Advanced skills in modern data architecture, data science engineering, data modeling and data quality using state-of-art cloud computing technologies (AWS).

Hands-on experience in the latest breed of data ETL, automation and CICD technologies including Python, SQL and Git in a cloud setting. Experience with cloud-native data warehouse technologies like Snowflake is preferred.

Strong skills in data analysis, insight generation and manipulation of structured and unstructured data sources. Experience with automated data quality frameworks is a plus.

Demonstrated ability to collaborate with all levels of data science engineering technology personnel and senior leadership.

Clear, concise communication abilities – writing, verbal, presentation – to all levels of technical and non-technical audiences.

Entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to creating rigorous, high-quality insights from data, at scale.


Requirements (Education & Experience):

  • Undergraduate degree in a technical or engineering field, such as Data Engineering, Data Science, Data Analytics, Computer Science or Software Engineering. Masters degree is a plus.
