About the role

The Company

Have you ever found yourself or a loved one waiting hours and hours in a hospital Emergency Room to get care? Or have you ever had a surgery scheduled for months in the future that needed to happen sooner? Unfortunately, our healthcare system is full of these types of operational problems. Our work saves lives and helps hospitals cut tens of millions of dollars in operational costs, while improving the quality of care they’re able to deliver.

Qventus is a real-time decision making platform for hospital operations. Our mission is to simplify how healthcare operates, so that hospitals and caregivers can focus on delivering the best possible care to patients. We use artificial intelligence and machine learning to create products that help nurses, doctors, and hospital staff anticipate issues and make operational decisions proactively.

Qventus works with leading public, academic and community hospitals across the United States. The company was recognized by the 2019 Black Book Awards in healthcare for patient flow and by CB Insights as a 2019 top 100 Most Promising Company in Artificial Intelligence. Recently, Qventus won the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Emergency Response for the Healthcare System Innovation Challenge through its work helping health systems across the country plan for and operate in the COVID pandemic.

Qventus is looking for a Data Platform Engineer II to help scale our solutions, focusing on our analytical and data science needs. 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 & Analytical insights 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 solution pipelines. You will be comfortable designing, building, and leading cross-functional initiatives with analytical and data science partners - from schema design, to pipeline design, to scaling services to support company expansion within the healthcare space (and HIPAA restrictions). You will have a strong passion for well designed data models and be motivated and excited to have an impact on the team and in the company and to improve the quality of healthcare operations.

Key Responsibilities

  • Work closely with core data users to understand product needs and design, build, tune and improve our core data assets and the overall end-to-end workflow of data users at Qventus (incl. designing data structures,  building and scheduling data transformation pipelines,  improving transparency etc.).

  • Automate & manage the lifecycle of data sets (schema development, deprecation, and iteration).

  • Improve the data quality and transparency of the pipelines (defining data requirements, identifying and implementing data observability tooling - lineage, sources, transformations).

  • Work closely with core team members to develop, test, deploy, and operate high quality, scalable software and raise engineering standards.

Key Qualifications

  • Demonstrated experience in data modeling / schema design and transformation pipeline implementation in collaboration with data science and analytics partners

  • Experience developing & coordinating execution in a fast paced dynamic environment across multiple technologies

  • Strong cross-functional communication - ability to break down complex technical components for technical and non-technical partners alike

  • Interest in mentoring and supporting new developers particularly in data modeling and analytical collaboration

  • 3+ years of professional experience working with modern programming languages such as Java, C/C++, Python with a dedication to high code quality.

Nice to Have Skills

  • Competence participating in technical architecture discussions to help drive high quality technical development within your team

  • Practical hands on experience with:


About 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.
