Role Description

Protecting patient healthcare information is the #1 cybersecurity objective within the $3 trillion U.S. healthcare industry. Healthcare has a multitude of data security software tools and defensive strategies already in place, but they fall way short in securing healthcare’s uniquely complex infrastructure. Further, with the advent of the COVID-19 crisis and even more remote care, the patient data “attack surface” has increased exponentially. The need for what we are building has never been greater.

Tausight is a patient data security startup with a mission of reducing healthcare cyber incidents using a more proactive, risk management philosophy. We deeply understand the complex intricacies of the healthcare infrastructure and have created a breakthrough, multi-patented, technology platform and sophisticated information architecture that will revolutionize how to best protect patient’s protected healthcare information (PHI). Powered by proprietary machine-learning algorithms, patented IoT sensing technology, and our Google Cloud DevOps infused private cloud, Tausight has reimagined how to enable healthcare CIOs and CISOs to make real-time decisions to protect PHI…much of which they can’t even see today.

Tausight is an exciting place to be, at an exciting time, and the best time to join us is right now.

As a Site Reliability Engineer, your primary responsibility is to ensure that our cloud infrastructure can scale sustainably and securely through the use of automation. You will be maintaining services once they are live by measuring and monitoring availability, latency, and overall system health. We use a serverless technology stack rooted in Cloud Dataflow, Cloud Functions, App Engine, Pub/Sub, IoT Core with plans to expand into GKE. We have a growing multi-tenant infrastructure, all managed by Terraform, Jenkins and other tooling. As a Tausight SRE, you will collaborate with engineering to implement changes that improve reliability and velocity for these technologies.

One of your main goals will be to minimize toil, or the amount of manual effort required to sustain production infrastructure. By managing load and canarying releases, you’ll work to make engineering throughout Tausight more efficient, productive and secure.

What you will do:

· Site Reliability Engineering role with additional focus on resiliency and testing.

· You will be responsible for implementing tooling that will enable us to continue to scale our operations, using container orchestration and other technologies like Kubernetes.

· Help evolve and streamline CI/CD systems using all facets of the Tausight stack ranging from our build servers to our backend services.

· Advocate for best practices around code quality, design and engineering productivity, including Source Control Management.

· Enhance and add to our existing Stackdriver monitoring and alerting suite to ensure security and performance, leveraging tools such as Grafana or Prometheus.

· Derive disaster recovery best practices.

What you need:

· 2+ years of experience in DevOps Engineering/SRE/Systems Administration.

· Sound knowledge of provisioning, securing, monitoring and load balancing resources on a cloud platform such as GCP, AWS, or Azure.

· Familiarity with an interpreted Object-oriented language, such as Golang or Python.

· Proficiency with a shell scripting language, such as Bash.

· Familiarity with cloud transforming tools such as Terraform, CloudFormation or Ansible.

· Experience with source control management using Git, and provisioning a CI system such as Jenkins, Gitlab, or CircleCI.

· Exposure to Kubernetes, ECS or other container orchestration tools.

· Analytical approach coupled with strong communication skills

· Shares the values of ownership, diversity of thought, and empathy for our users and coworkers

Nice to Have: 1. Previous experience managing Windows Clusters with VMWare ESXi

  1. Previous experience with either SQL or NoSQL Database administration

  2. Exposure to automated testing frameworks, such as Selenium.

  3. Previous experience with machine learning

Company Culture

Something special happens when you decide to commit your passion, energy, unique talents, and dedication to a healthcare technology startup. It doesn't take long to realize that you have not only accepted an opportunity to help change, grow, and protect one of the most vital institutions of our daily lives. You soon appreciate that a meaningful and critically important social responsibility always goes alongside the startup's business mission. In our case, we well understand and deeply respect that what we soon plan to do is to play a critical role in protecting a patient's identity and health information, which then can directly impact a patient's safety in a moment of crisis.

To say that our healthcare business mission and innate social responsibility affects our culture would be an understatement. Healthcare's core reason for being is about caring for people and their caregiving families. With ... respect, equality, fairness, expert knowledge, ethics, excellence, and a tremendous sense of urgency. Without ...bias, discrimination, disrespect, and inequity. And similar to healthcare, humor, fun, positive reinforcement, and celebration are the secret to longevity and, many times, the best medicine of all.

At Tausight, our culture strives to embrace the principles of healthcare as well as the best practices of the most successful, fun-to-work-at startups. This past spring, we created our company principles and all agreed to commit to work and live by them.

Here are our company responsibilities. We call our credo, We Believe.

Our first responsibility is to serve, help protect, and provide exceptional value to all healthcare providers and administrators who are entrusted with the care, safety, and privacy of their patients. We believe that protecting PHI is the cornerstone of patient trust and the foundation of patient safety and that it is an honor and privilege to do so.

Our second responsibility is to our employees and their families. We must continuously strive to make decisions, create work environments, and institute business practices that seek to ensure their safety and well-being. We will create a culture that is ethical, fair, fun, just, open, and positive and one that is mindful of ways to help our employees fulfill their responsibilities at home. We are committed to equal employment opportunity, fair compensation, employee development, and to the advancement of those qualified.

We will not tolerate ageism, racism, gender or sexual harassment, or any form of discrimination within our business operations or places of work. To be abundantly clear, we are committed to diversity, equity and belonging within our culture and across our company.

We believe in:

DIVERSITY - Our organization will be stronger and more resilient when we encompass a variety of experiences, opinions, and backgrounds. We will aim for a Tausight community of employees, board members, advisors, and partners that resembles the broader and far more diverse socio-economic and global world that we live in. Specifically, we will grow into a team of passionate, healthcare-dedicated individuals that span age, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, and race.

EQUITY - We will work toward fair outcomes for people and groups by treating them in ways that address their unique advantages or barriers.

BELONGING - All members of our community will feel equally valued and their voices and points of view are to be heard and respected. We will take deliberate actions to cultivate an atmosphere where all employees feel included, can contribute, and thrive.

Our third responsibility is to our investors, our Board of Directors, business partners, and other corporate stakeholders. We will strive to surpass our milestones on time and with excellence, achieve early and superior customer value and delight, and deliver truly exceptional growth as the leader within the new PHI Integrity market segment we will create. We will continue to spend our investment dollars with strategic prudence and responsible cash flow management and will always seek to identify pathways to achieve high returns on our strategic investments.

Our final responsibility is to make a positive, measurable impact on the lives of the underrepresented, underprivileged, and/or less fortunate people in the communities where we work. We will specifically focus on educational, fund-raising, and professional development opportunities where our passion for and deep experience within healthcare technology can significantly advantage those organizations, individuals, and particularly young people, with the explicit intent to help level the fields that lie ahead.
