Job # 174729

Sr. Python Data Engineer


This is a unique opportunity to join a successful company in the healthcare space that is carving out a new portion of their business that is functioning like a startup lab. They’ re looking for a data engineer who will take lots of data they are ingesting and help to build prototypes. This is a fast moving group where each member has lots of autonomy. They need an engineer who is creative, can look at the goal and come up with innovative solutions to the problem and build a prototype.

The right person will be an engineer first and foremost but will also be someone who can see beyond the narrow view of the engineering problem itself--maybe they have business intelligence experience or the ability to interpret data. They do not want a data analyst or a data scientist however. They want an engineer.

They are collecting lots of data on patients with the ultimate goal of helping patients come up with solutions to improve their health.  They will have gigantic files of genomic data coming to them from patients’ blood samples and from this data, they build prototypes. This group was formed under the idea that to do repeatable research, you need technical resources. They have very little process, and it’ s a very nimble environment where you input is not only allowed but is also welcomed and needed.

Much of the work will be in python though it is not required for this role. Experience working in the data layer is required.
