Arcadia Healthcare Solutions

Software Engineer, Back End Web Development

US-PA-Pittsburgh

Overview

Arcadia is building a team to increase the efficiency of its data ingestion pipeline. If concepts such as green field developmentbig datastream processingDevOpsparanoid security, and team building are attractive to you, read on!

 

We collect electronic health record (EHR) data from medical providers, such as doctors and hospitals, and billing data from those and insurance companies to create a unified health record across multiple providers for the purposes of studying patient population health.

More simply, we process a high volume, velocity, and variety of valuable data in order to build amazing visualizations and easily-consumed reports that help doctors make better decisions about their patients' preventative, maintenance, and emergency care, driving down costs and enabling better patient outcomes.

 

Even more simply, we help doctors tell patients how they can be healthier and how they can get better when they’re sick by enabling those doctors to see a patient’s record with every doctor they see.

Responsibilities

This person will largely aid the full-stack senior software engineer in implementing the cloud-based remote agent administration system.

You’ll need to be comfortable: 

  • taking direction from a senior software engineer
  • conducting light research to inform the usability of the software you develop,
  • being on-call regularly,
  • teaching everything you know to junior engineers and senior engineers alike,

  • PGP and GPG

Other things we’ll be working with include Amazon Web Services, Apache Nifi, Apache Beam, Atlassian Confluence, Atlassian JIRA, Github, and more. The software this team writes will be deployed on Microsoft Windows and a variety of Linux distributions, so experience with either or both is valuable.
