  • Ability to drive changes in a highly collaborative environment.
  • Ability to define technical vision and articulate the need for new initiatives.
  • Committed to help keep our patients’ data secure.

  • Excellent analytical skills and ability to communicate both verbally and in writing.
  • Experience building scalable, performant, fault-tolerant and resilient systems.

  • Detailed understanding of different types of APIs (REST, RPCs, SOAP, HL7, FHIR.)
  • Experience working with different types of data stores (relational, NoSQL, key/value, column store) used for different workloads (both OLTP and OLAP) under different constraints (distributed, sharded, partitioned, …)
  • Experience designing pipelines and systems around stream/event processing software (Kafka, Apache Flow, ...) in both real-time and batch modes.
  • Willingness to contribute to our Engineering culture and mentor engineers.
  • Data-driven/Evidence-driven mindset.
