Collective Health, San Francisco

Leading the healthcare evolution

Reimagining healthcare starts with exceptional experiences that bring clarity and insight to those receiving and paying for care.  Our role in administering health plans puts us a unique position to dig into the most granular level of America's healthcare payment infrastructure.  This gives us control over our data quality, which is key for getting specific and actionable insights.

We are looking for an full-stack Data Scientist to join the Analytics team at Collective Health. This position requires that rare mix of applied modeling, data visualization skills and a genuine passion for building flexible and scalable frameworks.  You will develop tools for analytics of both health data and financial data.  You will work closely with teams across the company to develop these into specific critical analyses as well as revolutionary products that deliver specific insights.

We expect to see:

  • An advanced degree (MS/PhD) in a data- and modeling-heavy discipline (e.g. statistics, computer science, economics, econometrics, linguistics, neuroscience, astrophysics, atmospheric science, geophysics, etc.)
  • Proficient skills in statistics and data modeling (regression, significance testing, multivariate statistics, dirty data, sparse data
  • Excellent programming skills in Python
  • Demonstrated experience in data integration in various ways (web APIs, SQL, noSQL, files)
  • A track record of getting stuff done with minimum supervision and proven success working with data and software engineers


Nice to have:

  • A flair for visualization
  • Experience with secure cloud infrastructure (S3 data storage, identity management integration, Unix tools) 
  • Successful record collaborating with multidisciplinary teams

About Collective Health

While medical technology continues to take giant steps forward, somehow the systems driving health coverage are still stuck in the past. The experience we have today is confusing. It’s painful. And we all deserve better. Collective Health was founded on the belief that better is possible. Driven by our mission to make understanding, navigating, and paying for care effortless, we’ve evolved the way health benefits work. More than 155 million Americans count on an employer for coverage. That's why, with the technology to create a more intelligent solution and the compassion to know that every person matters, we deliver a connected healthcare experience for companies who want the best for their employees.
