About Soda Health

Soda Health is a healthcare technology company focused on building solutions which eliminate health inequities and create a healthier America. We provide a technology platform to administer benefits personalized to individual needs, delivered more cost-effectively. Our expertise in healthcare, retail and consumer experience provides us with the foundation for creating easy-to-use solutions with an experience which moves beyond transactional relationships to sustained engagement and overall health improvement. That is a win for everyone.

The Job at a Glance

You will join a product engineering team who focuses on the plan-sponsor experience. Healthcare plan sponsors (typically insurance companies) are our customers, and the data which will be your responsibility is the most visible aspect of our service to them. You will evolve our current offering into a self-service reporting platform while simultaneously expanding our data footprint. By doing this, you will help millions of Americans who are underserved by the healthcare system.

What You’ll Do

Working within an organization created at the intersection of health care, retail and financial technology, no two days will look the same. Typical responsibilities of the role include:

  • Manage data operations ranging from streaming inputs to batch file loads
  • In partnership with other engineers, manage the reporting schema
  • Wrangle data into and through the reporting pipeline and schema
  • Procure and onboard external data from plan sponsors and public sources
  • Design and run the security aspects of reporting – we manage healthcare and payments data; a safety mindset is at the foundation of everything we do
  • Manage the data dictionary so that users understand what they are reporting about
  • Handle adhoc reporting requests from stakeholders within and external to the business; over time, move from adhoc to systematic

About You

While every candidate brings a unique resume and prospective, an ideal candidate will have:

  • A legacy of happy customers, rather than amount of data processed or the size of data footprint
  • A work history at startups; you collaborate deeply, are self-sufficient and you get a lot done
  • A history of applying software engineering best practices to data wrangling and pipeline creation
  • Cloud proficiency, ideally on GCP, especially as applied to compute/data architecture and security
  • Amazing SQL skills, to be applied in ETL and front-end reporting
  • Experience with, but not blind reliance on, workflow tools like Airflow and transformation tools like dbt
  • An ability, and a strategy, to manage data quality
  • Bachelor’s degree or similar experience strongly preferred

  • Soda Health is a remote-first, distributed workforce. Candidates should be comfortable with, and equipped to work within, a distributed remote team, including having reliable internet access and basic home office equipment. Soda Health will provide a work laptop, and mouse/keyboard upon request.
  • Legal authorization to work in the US is required. At this time, Soda Health will not consider candidates who need sponsorship, now or in the future.
  • All offers for employment are contingent upon successful completion of a background check.

What We Offer

  • Competitive base salary ranging from $160,000 to $180,000 annually, discretionary bonus, and equity; depending on experience/qualifications
  • Benefits
    • Medical, Dental, and Vision insurance with 90% paid employer premium contributions for all tiers
