Role Description

Grand Rounds is a new kind of healthcare company. Founded in 2011, the company is on a mission to raise the standard of healthcare for everyone, everywhere. The Grand Rounds team goes above and beyond to connect and guide people to the highest quality healthcare available for themselves and their loved ones. Grand Rounds creates products and services that give people the best possible healthcare experience. Named a 2019 Best Place to Work by Glassdoor and Rock Health’s 2018 Fastest Growing Company, Grand Rounds works with inspiring employers and doctors to empower them to be the change agents we need to make our shared vision a reality.

Platform Engineering at Grand Rounds: The Platform Engineering team at Grand Rounds builds the foundational components and services that allow our technology teams to deliver business applications that drive the insights needed to match our members with the highest quality providers.

Why we need you: Patient data portability is the key to modern healthcare, and your team will be directly responsible for exposing the interfaces and access to data that will lead to differentiating innovation for our organization.

As a key part of our platform services team, you'll be redefining our platform into an API-first service-oriented architecture. Some challenges you will solve: authentication and authorization, low latency APIs with end-to-end tracing, and the implementation of event sourcing and CQRS patterns.

We're built on Amazon Web Services and are widely adopting GraphQL along with the industry FHIR standard. Our applications are primarily written in Ruby, but we believe in using the best tools, techniques, framework or languages for the job. We have an internally-defined techradar architecture process where new technologies are constantly vetted through assess, trial, and adoption phases.

Some recent projects of the Platform Team include: Consolidated API schema using Apollo Server to perform schema stitching across a number of microservices. DevOn allows development on a single service, locally backed by a sandboxed version of our platform, running in the cloud using Docker and Envoy. Encrypted Kinesis payloads via Envoy sidecars enabling applications to encrypt and decrypt payloads that are communicated over Kinesis. Automated infrastructure using Packer to build machine images as part of our CI/CD pipeline. Migrated from Cloudwatch to Terraform and the wide adoption of infrastructure as code. Created a Dockerized deployment infrastructure backed by Amazon ECS

Your qualifications: Solid (5+ years) experience throughout the stack, applying through practice, proven design patterns Operation and design of robust distributed systems ideally on Amazon Web Services Strong scripting abilities in Ruby / Python / Javascript / Bash Experience with Java, Scala, Go Practical experience with open source technologies like Docker, Kubernetes, Envoy, Kafka, Airflow, Spark, Terraform, Packer, Vault Ability to write SQL and design relational, document, and column-oriented database schemas Working with data at the petabyte scale Passion for delivering high quality code and solutions that are built on modern DevSecOps principles Eagerness and ability to propose, evaluate, and socialize new technologies for adoption
