Engineering at Lyra Health

Engineering team and processes

We have regular two-week sprints and you'll have a weekly one-on-one with your manager. Engineers can push their code to production themselves once they get a code review from a team member. We use Jira to track our work. There are cross-functional stand ups based on projects that are in development.

Technical Challenges

We are at a point where we need to scale our data infrastructure as the company grows and to make clean, high-quality data available to everyone at Lyra. This infrastructure houses all data related to patients, providers, treatments, and outcomes. Our team of machine learning engineers and analysts are using this data to: build machine learning models to recommend the right kinds of treatment, match patients to the right providers, optimize the effectiveness of care, and derive insights that direct new research and product development to improve patient outcomes.

Projects you might work on
  • Building a data anomaly detection suite

  • Build an experimentation platform

  • Build our patient eligibility ingestion pipeline for scale.
