Job Description

How you will help
Working with our engineering and data science teams, you will own and be responsible for identifying privacy risks and opportunities in how we aggregate healthcare data. You’ll use the best tools and craft the most innovative algorithms to lead HealthVerity and its clients in remaining HIPAA-compliant. You will play an integral part in building a culture of accountability and agile response for everything yet to come.
 
What you will do
• Act as a healthcare privacy subject matter expert to provide insights & results that will help guide the direction of the company and industry
• Identify and quantify privacy risks in big data using statistical modeling
• Design privacy preserving models to de-identify joined data (including k-anonymity, k-concealment, l-diversity) from a variety of non-standard data sources
• Work closely with statistical experts to create and maintain HIPAA and industry certifications for sensitive data
• Collaborate with software engineers to implement privacy protection plans in real-world data feeds
• Creatively link information from healthcare records with a wide array of non-traditional and supplemental data sources
• Develop and implement scalable and efficient modeling algorithms that can work with big data in production systems
• Utilize some of the most exciting open-source tools like Spark, Hadoop, Docker, Airflow, Zeppelin
 
About you
• You believe patient privacy is an important element to data analysis, and are willing to protect that privacy against any reasonable threat
• You are thoughtful and detail-oriented, and can apply that to procedures, infrastructure, and code
• You have a proactive approach to privacy and security in your ability to point out vulnerabilities and provide practical solutions
• You can adjust and adapt your communication by explaining complex concepts in simpler terms
 
Desired skills
• M.S. degree in Computer Science, Math, Statistics or related field, or B.S. with at least five years of experience
• Strong background in statistical modeling and information theory concepts, and a track record of solving problems with these methods

Our company challenges
• Empowering clients with highly rewarding data discovery and licensing tools
• Ingesting and managing billions of healthcare records from a wide variety of partners
• Standardizing on common data models across data types
• Orchestrating an industry-leading HIPAA privacy layer
• Innovating our proprietary de-identification and data science algorithms
• Building a culture that supports rapid iteration and new possibilities
 
The infrastructure and culture we are building will provide an environment that cultivates innovation. We want to move fast knowing we can fix anything we break along the way. If a new need arises, we want to turn around a solution quickly. We want to solve our challenges in ways that create even more possibilities. We’re creating a platform that lets us discover what else we might do.
 
We have big plans 
We are building a platform that will scale to support an ever-growing array of data providers and innovative products. You must be able to think big while still delivering on near-term requirements.
