Lumere is a company with a mix of software, analytics and research built on helping health systems eliminate unwarranted clinical variation and cut unnecessary costs.

We are guided by our Core Values:

  1. Seek the frontier - Whatever your role, we are inspired by those who blaze trails and challenge the status quo.

  2. Obsess about impact - It’s our responsibility to bring bold innovation that leads to enduring change in healthcare.

  3. Do your best work - We seek individuals who care deeply about learning and teaching, and high performers who are even more self-aware.

  4. Welcome respectful debate - Our best ideas have come from active collaboration, are often based on limited information, and can contradict personal experience. 

  5. Succeed, as one team - We have a single purpose and motivate each other to achieve it.

The Position

As a Senior Software Engineer at Lumere, you will use your programming and data expertise to enable us to deliver comprehensive perspectives on clinical data and trends, as well as opportunities for our clients to reduce costs and improve patient outcomes.

The successful candidate will be a curious and experienced Python engineer who wants to make a direct impact in our healthcare system. In this role you’ll be focused on building out the infrastructure that powers our solutions, with heavy exposure to our database architecture, machine learning models, and PostgreSQL optimization work.  

What are some of the things you will help us with?

  • The majority of your day will be programming – often pairing with another Sr Engineer – to implement our best-in-class software tools with Python and SQL code.

  • Work closely with other engineers, our DBA and product managers to design a software solution that delivers optimal value to the user. Your architecture contributions will help us scale and evolve our platform.

  • Mentor mid-level and junior engineers in the art of software engineering and help bring on new members as we grow.

  • Do your best work with us. Lumere welcomes diversity and expects you to question, debate, learn, and grow.


Qualifications:

  • 5+ years in a back end software engineering role

  • Extensive experience with Python, PostgreSQL, database optimization and administration

  • Bonus points for experience with machine learning, continuous deployment

  • Demonstrated expertise in backend software engineering; ability to provide solid architectural guidance and insight

  • Ability to mentor junior developers and contribute constructive code review, communicate with audiences of different technical backgrounds, and collaborate across multiple teams

  • Growth-company DNA -- you thrive in a fast paced environment, adapt quickly and successfully manage ambiguity

An Insider's view of Lumere

What are some social events your company does?

Lumere sponsors an annual event known as the Bleacher Bash where employees take the afternoon off to cheer on the Chicago Cubs from the outfield bleachers of Wrigley Field. After the game we head to a nearby karaoke bar for a night of singing and team bonding. I've helped with planning and take great pride in contributing to the culture at Lumere.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We collaborate with Product, Research and Data Ops to update our analytics services to handle a specific subset of medical device data. Our Ops teams get the data, our medical research teams teach us how to interpret it, and our product teams hammer out the UI and task breakdown. It’s complicated and interdependent, which makes it satisfying work.

What is your vision for the company?

In addition to helping our customers push the frontiers of evidence-based medicine, we want to be one of the best places in Chicago for technologists to hone their craft. We think the best way to do that is to build a great team that's as excited about advancing our technology as our mission in healthcare.
