When you think about your last doctor’s appointment, how much do you actually recall? If you’re like most people, you’ll likely forget over 40% of the conversation. Details fall through the cracks, generic printouts you receive end up in the trash, and important information never makes it to other doctors. Ultimately, you’re left needing to connect the dots in your care. That’s why we started Abridge with a simple thesis: if we can shift agency to consumers, we can help them stay on top of their health. When you use Abridge to record your health conversations, the conversations themselves become your medical record. It’s as easy as that.

Privacy and security is paramount at Abridge. We believe that trust is the new network effect and have invested in building the processes and policies to ensure that everyone's data, which they control, is safe and secure. With that in mind, we're looking for an engineer with DevSecOps experience to help us secure and scale our mobile app, web app, and machine learning backend.

    • Proactively monitor systems and platforms for performance, availability, and capacity management.
    • Manage CI/CD pipelines and Kubernetes clusters.
    • Manage autoscaling technologies (e.g. launch configurations in GCP).
    • Develop knowledge of how product data flows through the company.
    • Build security standards for ingesting and storing data and its utilization in the data lake.
    • Develop and support security testing and validation tooling.
    • Improve secure coding practices, application security requirements, automation, training, and metrics.
    • Review and resolve security vulnerabilities as needed.
    • Help define penetration testing strategy.

Life at Abridge

At Abridge, we’re driven by our mission to bring understanding and follow-through to every medical conversation. Our culture is founded on doing things the “inverse” way in a legacy system—focusing on patients, instead of the system; focusing on outcomes, instead of billing; and focusing on the end-user experience, instead of a hospital administrator's mandate.
Abridgers are engineers, scientists, designers, and health policy experts from a diverse set of backgrounds—an experiment in alchemy that helps us transform an industry dominated by EHRs and enterprise into a consumer-driven experience, one recording at a time. We believe in strong ideas, loosely held, and place a high premium on a growth mindset. We push each other to grow and expose each other to the latest in our respective fields. Whether it’s holding a PhD-level deep dive into understanding fairness and underlying bias in machine learning models, debating the merits of a Scandinavian design philosophy in our UI/UX, or writing responses for Medicare rules to influence U.S. health policy, we prioritize sharing our findings across the team and believe that "you need to taste good things to have good taste."
Abridge is an equal opportunity employer. Diversity and inclusion is at the core of what we do. We actively welcome applicants from all backgrounds (including but not limited to race, gender, educational background, and sexual orientation).
