Improve the performance and scalability of our predictive pricing engine. Develop a robust data infrastructure to manage our batch workloads, and identify potential improvements to our technical stack.
Tackle difficult problems in an incredibly complex domain, and modernize the healthcare experience for millions of people.
Mine billions of healthcare claims for information that will help us steer users to the best quality doctors.
