Today, 1 in 3 Americans say they suffer from mental health problems like anxiety, depression, or insomnia. Despite this mental health epidemic, seeing a psychiatrist can take up to 3 months and cost as much as $500.

Shocked? Us too. That's why we started Cerebral, a telemedicine-first mental health startup. We are breaking down the barriers to access to mental healthcare so that anybody can get the care and meds they need. We launched publicly in January 2020 and are growing at over 40% month-over-month.  We need your help to keep growing at a dizzying pace!

How you will contribute:

  • Build a team and function, starting as the first data engineer for our important mission of delivering data-driven mental health care.
  • Manage internal application data models and schemas.
  • Establish data pipelines using technologies like Airflow to populate data from third-party services and in-house applications to the data warehouse. 
  • Manage data warehouse while applying best practices and considering techniques like time series dimensions as needed.
  • Partner with various stakeholders within the business, understand their data and reporting requirements, and translate them into definitions and technical specifications.
  • Troubleshoot technical issues with platforms, data discrepancies, alerts etc.
  • Proactively engage with functional teams to design and execute on a roadmap for internal, partner, and client data and analytics solutions.

Our tech stack:

  • Language: Python, Typescript, HTML, CSS
  • Systems: AWS, Postgres, Snowflake, Redshift, Looker, dbt, soon Spark ML 

Skills you’ll bring:

  • Knowledgeable in database structure, data modeling concepts, and implementation, particularly Postgres.

  • Implementation experience for machine learning algorithms that have been modeled by a data scientist. 
  • Comfortable working in an agile development process—and changing the engineering roadmap as business needs change.
