Role Description

Senior Software Engineer Backend Engineer, Cloud Infrastructure

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.

As a cloud infrastructure developer, you will work on a product that extracts data streams from hundreds of thousands of devices within complex healthcare provider environments, processes and analyzes these data streams for useful insight, and then feeds this back to our clients via a web application. You will own major components of this stack and be responsible for their performance, scalability, reliability, and also for testing their resiliency before market entry.

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

What You Will Do: Work with the cloud and data engineering teams on the reliability, scalability, testability, and deployment of key server components Develop on Tausight’s underlying Cloud (Google Cloud Platform, Jenkins, and Terraform), Logging, Monitoring (Stackdriver), and associated services Build internal tooling and services Review designs and look closely at code quality and risk, refactoring code as necessary. Write unit testing frameworks and automation. Effectively use tools and ingenuity to identify and fix defects

What You Need: BS in Computer Science or related technical field involving coding 3+ years’ experience in backend software engineering, Cloud engineering, or related roles Fluent in one or more languages (Java, Python, Javascript, etc.) Understand engineering tradeoffs, valuing pragmatism over idealism. Analytical approach coupled with strong communication skills Shares the values of ownership, diversity of thought, and empathy for our users and coworkers Passion for best quality practice and continuous professional development with the ability to iterate on solutions quickly and effectively

Nice to Have: Experience maintaining and debugging distributed systems in production environments Experience with Google Cloud Platform technologies such as Pub/Sub, Dataflow, Datastore, BigQuery, or Kubernetes Experience with CI/CD and testing automation frameworks Understanding of deployment automation/configuration management tools (Terraform, Chef, Ansible, etc.)

About Tausight

Tausight was founded in 2018 by David Ting, the cofounder and former CTO of Imprivata and a former appointee to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Health Care Industry Cybersecurity Task Force. We are a patient data security startup with a mission of reducing healthcare cyber incidents using a more proactive, risk management philosophy. At Tausight, we well understand the complex intricacies of the healthcare infrastructure and deeply believe that protecting patient's personal health information is the foundation of patient trust, the cornerstone of patient safety. Protecting PHI is also the #1 cybersecurity objective within the $3 trillion U.S. healthcare industry.

Backed by top-tier healthcare technology investors, Polaris Partners and Flare Capital Partners, our team has spent the last two years single-mindedly focused on developing a cutting-edge, multi-patented platform technology, and now first product, that will help secure and de-risk personal health information across a now increasingly decentralized healthcare ecosystem, post COVID-19 inception.

Our team is primarily located within Greater Boston and the San Francisco Bay area and welcomes remote workers and flexible working hours. As clearly stated within our company principles statement, called We Believe, Tausight 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.

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.
