About the role

The Company

Did you know there is over $1 trillion of waste every year in healthcare? One of the biggest contributors to the staggering amount of waste is inefficient operations. If you’ve ever spent hours waiting in the ER; if a hospitalized family member experienced a delayed discharge; if you’ve had to schedule a surgical procedure far into the future due to lack of available Operating Room time — then you understand the kinds of problems we solve.

We partner with health systems to automate care operations — all of the operational activities involved in delivering care, from discharge planning, to OR access, to patient flow, and more. Our software combines AI, machine learning, and behavioral science to power best-practice solutions for settings across the hospital and system. Solving those problems not only benefits patients, but it also eases the burden on physicians and nurses, and drives significant economic value for hospitals as well.

We work with leading health systems, academic medical centers, and community hospitals across the country. We’ve raised over $95M in funding from some of healthcare’s leading investors, including Thomas H. Lee Partners, Bessemer Venture Partners, Norwest Ventures Partners, Mayfield Fund, and more. We’ve also been recognized by Fast Company’s 2022 World Changing Ideas Awards, The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, CB Insights, and more.

Are you interested in simplifying how healthcare operates? Then join our amazing, mission-driven team and help health systems discover world-class operations that are essential to delivering world-class care.

The Role

Qventus is looking for a Data Platform Engineer II to help build the next generation of our data platform. The Data Platform team acts as stewards for Qventus’ data. We stream hospital EMR to our core warehouses in real-time, build out curated data layers to power our Healthcare AI and overall ensure Qventus data users have the tools they need to explore and power the Qventus product at scale and cost to improve the lives of patients and doctors across the country.

As a Data Platform Engineer II, you will build and own significant components of the Qventus data platform layer for our Inpatient solution. You will be comfortable designing, building, and leading cross-functional initiatives with technical and non-technical partners - from database tuning, to pipeline design, to feature engineering within the healthcare space (and HIPAA restrictions). You will be motivated and excited to have an impact on the team and in the company and to improve the quality of healthcare operations.

  • Improve the data quality and transparency of the pipelines (defining data requirements and data flow visibility - lineage, sources, transformations).
  • Design and implement highly scalable backend systems and algorithms to process massive amounts of complex, high dimensionality, high cardinality data.
  • Work closely with the rest of the team members to develop, test, deploy, and operate high quality, scalable software and raise engineering standards.

Position Requirements:

  • Demonstrated experience in data modeling and transformation pipeline design and experience building for data science and analytics partner needs
  • Experience working and building in a fast paced dynamic environment across multiple technologies
  • Competence participating in technical architecture discussions to help drive high quality technical development within your team
  • 3+ years of professional experience working with modern programming languages such as Java, C/C++, Python with a dedication to high code quality.

Desired Skills:

  • Strong cross-functional communication - ability to break down complex technical components for technical and non-technical partners alike
  • Degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or related field, or equivalent training / experience
  • Interest in mentoring and supporting new developers
  • Practical hands on experience with:
    • building large-scale, high complexity metrics and monitoring
    • ELK, DBT, Snowflake, AWS, Terraform, Looker, Ansible experience
    • Experience building and maintaining robust and efficient backend data systems with functional proficiency with AWS cloud services & modern data warehouse services (Snowflake)

Why you should join Qventus

We are a team of technologists, software engineers, doctors, nurses, and lean healthcare experts with on-the-ground experience solving operational challenges in clinical environments. Qventus helps hospitals like Stanford/Mayo Clinic/Emory/New York Presbyterian reduce wait time for patients, prevent patient falls, and generally helps hospitals deliver a better and safer experience for patients, resulting in reduced injuries, loss of life, and financial waste.

We're making a big difference. Qventus has meaningfully affected patient experiences and outcomes for almost 4 million patients across the united states. Our platform works with hospital data to predict negative outcomes for patients and associated potentially disastrous situations that are likely to occur, then applies our system of action to reach the right doctors and nurses, at the right time, telling them where to go to stop these events before they happen. Think Minority Report applied to hospitals.

Our founding team has done this before. Two of our three founders worked in consulting for over a decade solving efficiency problems in hospitals. They know hospitals, where they've been, where they want to go, and how to work within them to drive the necessary mind shift and change management we need to drive this new wave of technology.

Our team is top notch! We have the fortune of having amazing engineerings and data scientists from top schools (Stanford, MIT, Cal, etc.) applying the latest in artificial intelligence and machine learning to create products that help healthcare organizations around the world and their people adapt in the moment and make the right decisions from the most complex data. Furthermore, we employ several practicing clinicians (practicing surgeons, doctors, nurses) in the company to help us understand the hospital environment. We take what we do very seriously.
