  • You have a track record of learning new technologies and languages on the job
  • Although you’ll initially work mostly in Python, you’ll help us continue to evaluate new technologies and find the best tools for the job at hand

Your day-to-day:

  • Build data infrastructure and work closely with data pipelines: You will develop infrastructure to support our ETL, analytics, and modeling workflows. Data engineering is a core part of what we do, so you have to love working closely with data!
  • Build and refine ML models: You will help create ML models that improve Ribbon's abilities to surface the most accurate healthcare data possible
  • Evaluate third-party data sources: You will make decisions about what data is worth buying to augment the Ribbon data set
