Job description

Modern Health-

Modern Health is a mental health benefits platform for employers. We are the first solution to cover the full spectrum of mental well-being needs through both evidence-based technology and professional support from a certified coach or therapist. Whether someone wants to proactively manage stress or treat depression, Modern Health guides people to the right care at the right time.  We empower companies to help all of their employees be the best version of themselves, and believe in meeting people wherever they are in their mental health journey.

We are a female-founded company, backed by investors like Kleiner Perkins, Founders Fund, John Doerr, and Y Combinator, and partner with companies like Pixar, Gusto, Okta, EA, and Nextdoor that are taking a proactive approach to mental health care for their employees. Modern Health has raised more than $42 million and is looking for driven, creative, and passionate individuals to join in our mission.  

An inclusive and diverse culture are key components of mental well-being in the workplace, and that starts with how we build our own team. If you’re excited about this role, we’d love to hear from you!

The Role-

Using data to make informed decisions is a strategic imperative and competitive advantage for Modern Health. As a Data Engineer, your role is integral in ensuring we have the infrastructure and systems in place to make this possible across the company.

  • Define and iterate on our data models and pipelining to best support engineering, product, and business goals.
  • Own data integrity for our key product and company health KPIs.
  • Experience using SQL to explore data and build dashboards. 

Who You Are-

  • Experience in ETL design and implementation.
  • Experience in data modeling and schema design. 
  • You are a self-starter and see projects through from inception to completion with minimal oversight. 
  • You have experience working cross-functionally and partnering with stakeholders across departments of varying levels.
  • You care deeply about product experience and quality.
  • Health tech experience is preferred, but not required. 
  • Bonus points if you have experience with AWS.
