About us:
Grand Rounds is a new kind of healthcare company. Founded in 2011, the company is on a mission to raise the standard of healthcare for everyone, everywhere. The Grand Rounds team goes above and beyond to connect and guide people to the highest quality healthcare available for themselves and their loved ones. Grand Rounds creates products and services that give people the best possible healthcare experience. Named a 2019 Best Place to Work by Glassdoor and Rock Health’s 2018 Fastest Growing Company, Grand Rounds works with inspiring employers and doctors to empower them to be the change agents we need to make our shared vision a reality.

The Role:

What’s the point of warehousing valuable data if your analysts and researchers can’t navigate its complexities? At Grand Rounds we’re focused on reducing the cognitive load of navigating complex, rich, valuable healthcare data. We have a two-pronged strategy: one, design a rational, intuitive data model; two, build a platform that allows analysts and researchers to discover insights painlessly. This role will have ownership of the second prong of that strategy.

We’re hiring an engineer to be one of two founding members of the insights platform team. In this role, you’ll be tasked with establishing the technical vision, driving the roadmap (one year and beyond), and doing the heavy lifting of building for immediate value and balancing prioritization decisions of moving fast with building to last.

Success in this role means not only building the platform that creates a seamless and painless experience using Grand Rounds’ data, but shifting the culture of the organization to further embrace data-driven decision making in product roadmapping.
