Cedar has built a platform that combines data science and machine learning to connect patients with healthcare providers in a way that helps tackle the critical challenges of patient billing and payment. Our technology improves the overall experience of patient billing and engagement, enabling providers to thrive in a rapidly changing environment while helping patients understand the cost of their care.
Data integrations are the driving force of Cedar. We need robust and scalable data integrations to work with healthcare providers and provide the best experience for patients. Data integrations are very complicated in healthcare today due to lack of interoperability and standardization across medical billing systems. This challenge holds back many health tech companies from making progress. At Cedar, we have invested deeply in our integration engine, as we believe it is an essential ingredient to achieving our mission of helping patients.
We are seeking a Senior Backend Engineer to join the team and contribute to the backend of the Cedar platform. This team member would be responsible for developing the integration engine required for a smooth integration with our providers’ electronic health record data. This role is perfect for the engineer who has a passion for system and application design!
