We're looking for a Database Reliability Engineer to help us accomplish our mission to improve lives by learning from the experience of every cancer patient. Here's what you need to know about the role, our team and why Flatiron Health is the right next step in your career. 

What You'll Do

In this role, you'll work with the TechOps Team to support the database initiatives of Flatiron’s provider-facing engineering teams. You'll help improve the data platform for OncoEMR, our oncology-specific electronic medical record (EMR) system used by over 1,300 oncology clinicians to diagnose and treat patients battling cancer. In another aspect, this position will help implement best practice, automation, and reliability standards into the data sets of our research initiatives where modern technologies are at the forefront of application design. In addition, you'll also:

  • Manage and improve multiple, large-scale, cloud-hosted Microsoft SQL server environments
  • Provide best practices, automation, and support around modern database platforms such as RDS, PostgreSQL, and Redshift
  • Serve as a technical resource for developer teams, project managers, and analysts.
  • Work on a multi-disciplinary team of Database Reliability, Software, and Site Reliability Engineers
  • Collaborate with development and operations teams to quickly highlight and resolve problems with database systems
  • Participate in design reviews and work with developers to improve or troubleshoot database driven applications
  • Work closely with security engineers to ensure database security is in accordance with compliance policies set by Flatiron, HIPAA, or other authorities
  • Ensure appropriate documentation is developed and maintained relative to our database environments

The Database Reliability Engineer is a critical role in maintaining and optimizing Flatiron’s data platform space, where data integrity, security, and performance all have a direct impact on the lives of cancer patients and their care. Flatiron Health is a leading healthcare technology and services company focused on improving oncology patient care and accelerating cancer research. Our products connect community oncologists, academics, hospitals, life science researchers and regulators on a shared technology platform. For community oncology clinics, our OncoCloud product offers the most comprehensive suite of software and services in community oncology. We work with both community oncologists and life sciences customers to see how the billions of data points on cancer patients can generate meaningful real-world evidence, and also accelerate clinical trials. Flatiron believes that we can learn from the experience of every patient.

Who You Are

You're a Database Administrator with 3+ years of hands-on database administration experience.  You have 3+ years of experience with performance monitoring, database tuning, and capacity planning. You're excited by the prospect of rolling up your sleeves to tackle meaningful problems each and every day. You’re a kind, passionate and collaborative problem-solver who seeks and gives candid feedback, and values the chance to make an important impact. 

  • Your experience is in Microsoft SQL Server on Windows Server environments
  • You have experience with implementing highly-available database environments and supporting disaster-recovery requirements
  • You have experience maintaining cloud-hosted environments such as Amazon Web Services or Microsoft Azure
  • You have experience managing and scaling PostgreSQL, RDS, Redshift, or another modern database platform
  • You have the demonstrated ability to provide in-depth consulting services in the identification and resolution of database issues
  • You have experience in the planning, design, and usage of database resources and providing support to development teams
  • You have experience participating in incident response and engineering on-call rotations

If this sounds like you, you'll fit right in at Flatiron. 

Extra Credit 

  • You have experience programming in .NET & Python
  • You have experience setting and maintaining service level objectives and service level indicators around enterprise data platforms
  • You have experience with Powershell, Ansible, and other scripting or orchestration frameworks

An Insider's view of Flatiron Health

Abhishek

Software Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

As engineering manager, I am invested in the professional development of the people I work with. I train team members by pulling them out of their comfort zones to the uncomfortable territory. At Flatiron, it is one of our values - greatness and comfort rarely co-exist.

Kevin

Software Engineer

What is your vision for the company?

At Flatiron, we believe that learning from the experience of every cancer patient is an imperative — it is the key to accelerating research and continuing to improve the quality of care. Our mission is to serve cancer patients and our customers by dramatically improving treatment and accelerating research.

Zach Weinberg

Co-Founder, President and COO

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Instead of studying the cells, I now have the opportunity to write about the patients. I can tell their stories through the research lens and enable them to advance clinical cancer research through their experiences. I certainly never lose sight of the human behind the cell anymore.
