Blink Health is fixing how broken, opaque, and unfair healthcare is. We are a New York based, mission driven, well-funded healthcare technology company. We’re changing healthcare through technology and transparency. With our proprietary technology, everyone now has access to one, low negotiated price on over 15,000 medications. But there is more work to do.
About The Team
Blink Engineering strives to build trusted, highly observable, data-driven products to bring affordable, accessible healthcare to all Americans. We understand healthcare is the most complex system most of us will ever fix. We believe in solving this complexity through the use of simple, well-known technologies. We are a highly collaborative team that believes in owning outcomes over owning code and putting patients at the center of everything we do.
The Blink Health Data Engineering and Analytics team is growing responsible for building infrastructure, frameworks and tooling to enable data-driven decisions; building and maintaining our data warehouse for security and scale. This role is central to building and executing on a robust and forward-looking data strategy for the company, and the successful candidate blends top-tier software engineering expertise with the ability to look ahead at what we need to build for the future.
