Core Platform Engineer

Quartet is a healthcare tech company transforming the way behavioral healthcare is delivered in this country, by making it more accessible and integrated into primary care. Millions of Americans are not getting the behavioral healthcare they need. Quartet partners with insurers and works with physicians to identify their patients in need of behavioral care, match them to the right care, and support them throughout their journey. We are a team of engineers, data scientists, and clinicians, finding solutions for a broken healthcare system. Venture-backed by the very best healthcare tech investors, including GV(formerly Google Ventures), Quartet is currently live in three U.S. markets and growing rapidly.

We're creating a platform to improve outcomes for patients with mental health and chronic medical conditions. We do this in many ways, from identifying patients at risk and routing them to the right specialists to creating a feedback loop between the primary care physicians and behavioral health specialists so they can collaborate on each patient’s treatment. These patients are often lost in our healthcare system and don't get the right care at the right time. We want to fix that.

The Core Data and APIs platform team facilitates all of these interactions by providing query APIs, schema governance, and centralized user profiles across our applications for doctors and patients. We pride ourselves on utilizing a variety of cutting edge frameworks, languages, and methodologies, while ensuring we deliver simple and impactful solutions to drive our business and outcomes for patients.
