SEARCH - Senior Software Engineer

Boston, MA · Job # 8552BK

You will use your analytical skills to improve strategic innovations and  work closely with subject matter experts (practicing clinicians themselves) to understand their questions and needs, then dig into their medical content to find the best answers within their “time-to-answer” requirements.

You’ll develop algorithms, write scripts, build predictive analytics, use automation, and use the right combination of tools and frameworks to turn that set of conceptual data points into subjective answers to help clinicians make informed decisions. You will work with cross-functional teams, have exposure and visibility to senior leaders, and be able to make significant technical and business impact.  Join us as we use Search for good at the clinical point of care.
