Company Overview:

Cohere Health is illuminating healthcare for patients, their doctors, and all those who are important in a patient’s healthcare experience, both in and out of the doctor's office. Founded in August 2019, we are committed to eliminating wasteful friction patients and doctors experienced in areas with nothing to do with health and treatment. To that end, we build software that is expressly designed to ensure the appropriate plan of care is understood and expeditiously approved so that patients and doctors can focus on health, rather than payment or administrative hassles.

Opportunity Overview:

The technology group at Cohere Health has experienced rapid growth over the past three years. Each year, the team has doubled in size, and the group has grown from a small, tight-knit team to a large, diverse group of engineers and data scientists. We are seeking a leader to consolidate data engineering, data management, data science, and machine learning. The leader will foster greater cohesion between the functions and expand their capacity and capabilities to face the ambitious goal of eliminating unnecessary administrative burden from the US healthcare system.

Last but not least: People who succeed here are empathetic teammates who are candid, kind, caring, and embody our core values and principles. We believe that diverse, inclusive teams make the most impactful work. Cohere is deeply invested in ensuring that we have a supportive, growth-oriented environment that works for everyone.
