Full-Time Senior Software Engineer
Founded in 2014, Aledade is a healthcare company funded by Venrock, ARCH Venture Partners, Biomatics Capital and Google Ventures. We help independent primary care physicians deliver better care at lower cost by supporting their transition to value based care for their Medicare and commercial patient populations. Our rapidly expanding national network includes more than 4,000 primary care providers and 650,000 patients, with $2.5B in annual medical spending under management.
Powered by a diverse, dynamic, passionate team of more than 200 employees who are committed to changing healthcare in America, Aledade was named a Washington Post Top Workplace in 2018 and was also selected as a finalist for the Top 50 in Digital Health’s Fastest Growing Company. We are led by our CEO and Co-Founder, Farzad Mostashari who was named as one of the 100 Most Influential People in Healthcare in 2018 by Modern Healthcare.
A software engineer on the Aledade Architecture team is primarily responsible for maintaining, improving, and expanding our large data processing pipeline. Arch Engineers grapple with a huge array of extremely messy healthcare data and compose that data into derivatives that provide insight into our patient population. We’re looking for our engineers to be self-starting, and proactive; they are expected to serve as a trusted resource on the business logic in place as well as our system architecture. They are expected to work collaboratively, with minimal supervision, to ensure our application meets project requirements and scalability needs.
Aledade headquarters are located in Bethesda, MD. However, we are an inherently distributed company, and many of our employees, including the tech team, work remotely.
