About H1

We see valuable breakthroughs, new connections, and great collaborations happening on our platform for the healthcare industry each day. We want to extend free access to HCPs in need of medical supplies during the current pandemic to help bring medical providers together to source medical supplies, share medical information, and understand the newest research.

Job Description

At H1 we are creating a healthier future by delivering a platform that connects stakeholders across the healthcare ecosystem for greater collaboration and discovery.

About the Data Team The Tesseract team at H1 plays a crucial and foundational role in creating that future! Looking across thousands of data sources across the globe, the data team is responsible for making sense out of that data to create the world’s most extensive and comprehensive knowledge base of healthcare stakeholders and the ecosystem they influence. The Tesseract web application is our window into the data platform - providing hundreds to thousands of users an optimized workspace for data research, exception management, and data quality.

H1 is growing fast, we are expanding to more countries and offering an expanded catalog of data oriented services.  So our engineering team must grow too!

The Role

As a part of the Tesseract Web Application development team, you will help deliver the evolution of our product. You will be working with stakeholders across the organization, with product managers and designers, and directly with our customers, to architect and deliver a highly performant, intuitively usable, and infinitely scalable web application.

And as a Director of Engineering you will be responsible for managing and mentoring other members of the team, as well as partnering with leaders of other data engineering platforms as well as the Product Management team. You will help the team operate effectively, ensuring the teams have the right inputs and the support they need to be successful.

You care deeply about the growth and development of the members of your team.
