About Sage

Sage is on a mission to improve care and quality of life for older adults, starting with those residing in senior living facilities. Falls are the leading cause of injury-related death among adults over 65. And yet, fall prevention and emergency response systems for older adults are archaic and ineffective. At Sage we've built a more modern way of understanding when older adults need help, including methods for residents to alert caregivers when in need of help, and corresponding software for caregivers to triage response. Our company mission is to create a product that our client counterparts love, and this role is a key part of that objective.

Sage is a small, tight team of ambitious, multi-disciplinary entrepreneurs. We are a software-enabled, mission-driven company, and are focused only on the problems that are central to achieving that mission. At Sage, we work hard and fast but also know that to build a truly important company, we need to treat our work as a marathon, and not a sprint. The journey matters.

About this Role 

This Analytics Engineer will be a pivotal member in our fast growing startup. As the second hire of the Data team, you will be responsible for ensuring the scalability, improvement, maintenance, and quality assurance of our data pipelines day to day and during critical phases of integration with external systems. You will work autonomously and bring a blend of technical expertise and strategic thinking to support reporting for internal and external clients.

Our stakeholders rely on data artifacts to make critical business decisions, so having a passion for data quality, meticulous attention to detail, and a commitment to creating reliable and accurate data solutions is important for this role.

  • Continuous Improvement: Conduct technical research and implement state-of-the-art methodologies as needed to increase efficiency, accuracy and overall business value.

Minimum Qualifications

  • A minimum of 3 years of post grad experience in analytics engineering or business intelligence at scale, with a strong record of developing and maintaining complex data pipelines and enforcing data quality processes.
  • A minimum of 1 year of post grad experience communicating core business metrics with data visualization and dash boarding tools (Tableau, PowerBI, Looker, Mixpanel, Hex, etc.), with a strong understanding of ties between data and business operations.
  • Non academic experience with Python, particularly with data related libraries (Pandas, NumPy, Scikit-Learn, or equivalent)
  • Exceptional communication and stakeholder management skills, comfortable supporting non-technical teams to reach their goals and managing expectations.
  • Ability to work independently and in a team environment, with a proactive approach to problem-solving and a focus on delivering results.
  • Entrepreneurial and self-starter spirit. You will be expected to actively identify, prioritize and solve for the needs of different teams and clients.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Experience with Hevo + Snowflake + dbt + Hex/Mixpanel is preferred
  • In particular, extensive experience with dbt can be a deciding factor, as it is the platform where most of the work is expected to happen.
  • Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Computer Science or other Quantitative field
  • Experience building Machine Learning models in production environments.
  • Experience in the healthcare industry and familiarity with HIPAA and other healthcare compliance standards
