As a Senior Staff Software Engineer - Data Infrastructure, you will build technology that saves lives. At Aledade we use data to save lives. This opportunity is to improve millions of people's mental and physical health, that's what we do here at Aledade. We empower primary care physicians to use technology to keep their patients healthy, by preventing unnecessary hospitalizations.
At Aledade, you will sit at the intersection of:
A huge problem; amounting to trillions of dollars of waste in U.S. Healthcare spending.
An approach that moves the needle; In the U.S., we wait until someone has a stroke, then are hospitalized. From there, no expense is spared. Using technology, Aledade changes that by enabling doctors to intervene with the proper preventive care, like blood pressure control, before it becomes a stroke.
A platform that works at scale; last year 11,000 physicians across 36 states served ~1.7M patients, saving 24,000 unnecessary hospitalizations and 120,000 visits to the emergency room using Aledade’s technology.
But the journey is only 1% done, come join us to build a world-class team that will not quit till it addresses the trillions of dollars of suffering in U.S. healthcare spending.
As a Senior Staff Software Engineer, you will lead teams of engineers to develop long-term plans that will take us beyond traditional monolithic SQL engines and batch pipelines. You will build the next generation of distributed data storage and processing systems. You will build systems that can scale indefinitely and surpass traditional query performance while making the interfaces for that data simple, expressive, and cleanly abstracted. Your interfaces will support a broad array of data consumers, from our web application to business analytics and artificial intelligence.
Technologies we use:
PostgreSQL / Amazon Aurora, Snowflake, Python, Airflow, Docker, Kubernetes, Redis, Confluent, Cognito, Cloudfront, Spark, DataBricks.
- Design multi-year vision with incremental deliverables that architect abstractions to allow for ingesting and processing multiple clinical and patient data feeds
- Use and develop algorithms to harvest knowledge from data
- Re-design systems to meet the growing data and query needs
- Build services from the ground up
- Have end-to-end ownership across reliability, performance, and scalability of services
- Set and uphold the standard for engineering processes to support high-quality engineering, including style and code checking, test harnesses, and release packaging
- Work closely with Product Management, Practices, Sales, Customer Success, and other stakeholders to understand product usage patterns and trends and to make data-driven decisions and forecasts.
- Create security around client data, and protect individual patient health information
- Mentoring and galvanizing new engineers to do their best work
- Working across disciplines to shape a product strategy and execution
As the engineering team grows, you will lift the people around you:
- BS/BTech (or higher) in Computer Science or a related field required
- 7+ years of production-level experience as an engineer building highly scalable and reliable infrastructure in Java, Scala, C++, C#, or an equivalent language.
- Comfortable working towards a multi-year vision with incremental deliverables.
- Strong foundation in algorithms and data structures and their real-world use cases.
- Experience with distributed big data processing systems (Spark, Hadoop), workflow orchestration frameworks (Airflow, DBT), and large-scale messaging systems(Kafka, RabbitMQ, etc).
- Experience working on cross-functional teams and matrixed organizations
- Motivated by delivering customer value and impact.
- Experience with security and systems that handle sensitive data
- 5+ years of experience acting as a trusted technical decision-maker in a team setting, solving for short-term and long-term business value
- Working knowledge of health-tech systems, like Electronic Health Records, Clinical data, etc.
Who We Are:
Aledade, a public benefit corporation, exists to empower the most transformational part of our health care landscape - independent primary care. We were founded in 2014, and since then, we've become the largest network of independent primary care in the country - helping practices, health centers and clinics deliver better care to their patients and thrive in value-based care. Additionally, by creating value-based contracts across a wide variety of payers, we aim to flip the script on the traditional fee-for-service model. Our work strengthens continuity of care, aligns incentives, and ensures primary care physicians are paid for what they do best - keeping patients healthy. If you want to help create a health care system that is good for patients, good for practices and good for society - and if you're eager to join a collaborative, inclusive and remote-first culture - you've come to the right place.
