Data engineers at VillageMD implement data pipelines to aggregate data from EHRs, claims data, smart devices, and more. This data provides vital insights that drive every aspect of our business. This isn’t your standard ETL role – we’ve built our technology by standing on the shoulders of tech giants allowing us to craft a flexible, scalable architecture that’s nimble enough to handle real-time messaging and data file transfers. We bring to bear proven, open-source technologies developed at Airbnb, Amazon, and Facebook. We participate in the open-source ecosystem and OHDSI.

  • A real passion for problem solving and learning new technology
  • Vision to balance speed and maintainability in solution design
  • Strong analytical and technical skills
  • The ability to handle multiple, concurrent projects
  • Excellent ability to craft and implement requirements, keep projects on track, and engage partners
  • Challenging the status quo to improve our processes and tools
  • Communicate complex technical details in meaningful business context
  • A low ego and humility; an ability to gain trust by doing what you say you will do

What you might do in your first year:

  • Own ten projects working multi-functionally with the Physician Success and Analytics teams to design and implement best-in-class data processing enabling clean data flow directly to our data model
  • Work with an HIE, engineering, analytics, and operations to design and implement an integration that streamlines our transitional care management workflows
  • Design a new concept within our data model to meet a new operational or analytical need
  • Build a python app to send data anomalies to operations

The following experience is relevant to us:

Director, Product Development

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The office vibe is centered on holding our work to high standards while maintaining an environment focused on fun and learning. My coworkers and I will often be working on completely unrelated projects, but when we hit a roadblock we step back and ask each other for feedback and help. That’s usually when we find the best solution to implement.
