Data Engineer

Company Description:
Quartet is a pioneering technology company connecting physical and mental care to improve people’s health and quality of life. We are building a collaborative technology platform that brings together physicians, mental health providers, and insurance companies to effectively improve patient outcomes and drive down healthcare costs. Our data-driven platform identifies high-need patients and facilitates access to personalized care. Backed by $92MM in venture funding from top investors like GV (formerly Google Ventures) and Oak HC/FT, Quartet is headquartered in NYC and is currently operating in several markets across the US -- Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Louisiana, Washington, Northern California, and New Jersey.

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.
