Software Engineer (Full Stack)

| Chicago

Full Stack Engineers at VillageMD develop software to enable our team to write analytics and craft workflows that improve clinical outcomes. We're in a unique position to impact everyone in primary care from independent, family-owned practices to premier health systems. We aggregate, process, and deliver rich datasets to improve the effectiveness of primary care for our doctors and patients.

We’ve built our technology by standing on the shoulders of tech giants allowing us to create a flexible, scalable architecture that’s nimble enough to handle real-time messaging and data file transfers. We use validated, open-source technologies developed at Airbnb, Amazon, and Facebook. We participate in the open-source ecosystem and OHDSI.

  • AWS, Azure or GCP experience
  • Configuration management framework experience (Chef, Ansible, Puppet)
  • NodeJS and Webpack skills would be a plus
  • Exposure to containers and container orchestrations would be desired
  • Experience with clinical and financial healthcare data highly preferred
  • Track record of successfully executing projects with multiple partners

Insider's spotlight

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Aggregating disparate data into one consumable interface is difficult. We constantly think about how to solve it faster and better while keeping it flexible and scalable.

What makes someone successful on your team?

It’s an individual’s willingness to get into the details, fully understand the current health care delivery model, and think critically about the problems that face primary care providers today, that will make them successful at VillageMD.

Dave

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.
