Waymark is a team of healthcare providers, technologists, and builders whose mission is to bring the best healthcare to people with Medicaid benefits.  Guided by the communities we serve, we bring support and technology-enabled care to help primary care providers keep Medicaid patients healthy.  We are building the tools and designing an approach to enable care to reach the patients who can benefit most.  

Our core values embody the essence of what makes Waymark a unique team today, and what we look for, nurture, and sustain as a team. We are bold builders, believing that the greatest challenges in care delivery can be solved when we harness the power of community and technology. We are humble learners, seeking feedback and perspectives different from our own, and welcome challenges to our conclusions. We experiment to improve, actively seeking data to inform decisions and to assess our own performance. We act with focused urgency, our commitment to our mission drives us to tirelessly pursue results.

If this vision resonates with you, we hope you consider bringing your creativity, your energy, your curiosity to Waymark.

In this role, you will tackle a critical healthcare challenge that will determine our success: identifying the right patients to outreach, at the right time, with the right information and resources.

You will help create and maintain data pipelines and architectures that bring healthcare data securely into our environment, transform that data intelligently, move that data to our internal CRM so that team members as varied as social workers and pharmacists can help our patients, and help our analytics team identify which interventions were effective. You will work with a diverse team, from social workers and pharmacists to economists and designers, to help shape our understanding of how to improve and scale our services and technologies.
