Senior Backend Engineer for PreemptiveAI 

A portfolio company of the AI2 Incubator

Despite spending far more of its gross domestic product (17% of GDP) on healthcare than any other industrialized nation, the U.S. ranks last on access to care, administrative efficiency, equity, and healthcare outcomes. In the largest ever realignment of incentives, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) have committed billions to value-based payments that aim to promote care efficiency and reduced spend. The organizations that will succeed in this new model will move quickly towards predictive healthcare. 

PreemptiveAI is enabling providers, payers, and digital health entities to identify the highest-risk patients and prioritize them for care coordination and targeted interventions, in order to prevent escalations. Using deep learning to analyze real-time smartphone and wearable sensor data, its technology can map physiological health risk in real time, enabling the future of population health management. 

We are seeking a talented Senior Backend Engineer to lead the development of our cloud backend infrastructure. In this role, you will work alongside world leaders in AI for healthcare and build critical software infrastructure to support our suite of mobile health sensing products.

  • Understanding of web protocols, security best practices, and authorization patterns (OIDC, OAUTH) ● Passionate about the entire software development lifecycle starting from requirement gathering and planning to release and production maintenance 
  • Excellent communication and organizational skills

What’s in it for you?
