Right now, we're looking for the first Data Engineer Growth to bring affordable virtual care to a billion people by building the growth analytics infrastructure, and the experimentation framework.


About HealthTap

HealthTap is the first global virtual health practice, powered by more than 100,000 U.S. doctors, delivering fast, affordable, and high-quality care.

How does that work?

  • You can search the world's largest library (5.5 billion answers served over six  years) of peer-reviewed doctor knowledge for any health topic
  • Or ask help from Dr. A.I, our virtual “physician” who translates your symptoms into personalized, doctor-recommended insights—trained by the HealthTap’s doctor network
  • And if needed, connect with a doctor for a live virtual consult through voice, video, or text—and get prescriptions, labs tests, and referrals afterwards

Not only have we’ve served more than 250 million people over the past six years, but the most reputable health providers and health payors — from New Zealand to the United States — are using our platform to help their patients receive and doctors deliver faster, more affordable, and quality care.

We’re a venture-backed (with the likes of Khosla, Eric Schmidt, Mayfield Fund) health-tech startup based in the heart of Palo Alto.


What’s the opportunity?

As part of the growth team that directly reports to the CEO, you'll have resources, autonomy, and the support of other growth friends to drive user growth through rapid innovation and experimentation.

  • Building the infrastructure for the growth analytics
  • Laying the foundation for a scalable experimentation framework
  • Democratizing data access for each HealthTap team member
  • Sharing the love about the correct use of data and analytics at the company


Examples of projects you could work on:

  • Reduce friction across the company by allowing team members to access key metrics accurately and in (almost) real time
  • Drive HealthTap’s data-driven growth strategy by building a scalable framework capable of to enable growth team members to easily launch experiments and analyze results across platforms
  • Increase the accuracy of HealthTap growth interventions by allowing non-technical team members to easily build cross-platform funnels across custom cohorts


Need to have

  • You have a BS / MS / PhD in Computer Science, or related field
  • You have the ability to architect scalable systems capable of processing massive amounts of data

  • You have worked on a product that people love to use, and you know the metrics plus interventions to get to that success
  • You’re accustomed to a data-driven, experimentation-oriented approach in a fast paced, agile environment
  • You don’t stop until the problem is solved
  • You like extreme ownership and autonomy
  • You enjoy educating others: for example, by writing a playbook about how to use the mobile experimentation framework for every engineer in the company
  • You’re interested in why something happened, not just what happened



Nice to have
