Director of Engineering

About us:

We partner with healthcare providers (e.g., hospitals) to optimize long-term patient outcomes and costs. We’re doing this by creating tools to expose and influence the discrete decisions that shape each patient’s path through our healthcare system. In practice, this translates to working with (ahem) significant clinical, financial, and operational datasets to model, analyze, and inform the provision of care.

We’re venture-backed, have real revenue, and need to scale every aspect of the business.

All this in mind, we’re in the market for an experienced Director of Engineering to help design – and execute on – every aspect of our software platform while leading the broader buildout of our engineering team.
