Role Description


Agathos, a post-seed health analytics startup, is looking for an experienced engineer to help build the infrastructure necessary to power data-driven insights for physicians to help them provide more effective and efficient care. Healthcare costs and inefficiencies are one of the largest problems facing the United States, and improving healthcare quality can affect humanity on a global scale. Agathos has the data, partners, and domain experts to help lead the transition to a sustainable health and economic model for the industry. We are backed by leading healthtech VCs and have strong traction among some of the nation’s most advanced hospitals. We need someone to add their skills and leadership to make this vision a reality.


We’re looking for a Senior Engineer to join our small but very productive team. As we grow, we need someone with the skills and experience to take ownership of several functional areas, driving them forward both with their prolific contributions and leadership of others. The ideal candidate has an architectural mindset, can evaluate system-wide platform decisions, and help set long-term company-wide technical strategy. They are a formidable engineer, a mentor to others, and are capable of assessing and making difficult tradeoffs. They are comfortable working in multiple languages at any given time, interested in doing deep research to choose the best tool for the job, and comfortable stepping into new challenges as diverse as managing a hospital security review or working directly with customers on data integrations. They are ready to be a leader in the organization and will be instrumental in the growth of both the Agathos product and team.

The candidate will report to the Head of Engineering.


  • Data management experience - moving large quantities of data through a multi-stage pipeline
  • Python w/ TDD & CI
  • SQL experience
  • Dev Ops - Familiarity with basic software infrastructure, including AWS and container management (e.g., Docker, Kubernetes)
  • Security - Understand the principles of securing and managing sensitive data; background with HIPAA or other protected data a plus
  • Communication - Able to effectively communicate technology strategy to the executive team and across roles within the company.
  • Ownership - Proven track record of reliably delivering high-quality results without supervision, both individually and as a team

Nice-to-haves include:

  • Healthcare domain knowledge
  • Airflow
  • PostgreSQL, Redshift, MS-SQL
  • Full-stack web - experience building data-driven single-page-applications (React preferred) and the back-end APIs that power them

We encourage people from historically underrepresented communities in technology to apply, including but not limited to women, people of color, people with disabilities and those who identify as LGBTQ. US work authorization required.


We are a small team of physicians, data scientists, economists, and health technologists committed to high-value care. We are passionate about our work and have a strong culture of healthy debate and challenging ideas. You should expect to receive challenging, nuanced, thought-provoking reactions to your work, and we are looking for a candidate who can thrive and participate in this kind of environment while staying action-oriented. We have fun together, with regular office happy hours and quarterly retreats, but we are also committed to diversity of lifestyles and to supporting work-life balance.


We look forward to hearing from you! Interested applicants should send an email with subject line “ORANGE = VALUE” to Please include a resume and pointers to any relevant online resources (Github projects, articles you've written, etc.).
