Want to revolutionize Healthcare?

To create a healthcare system with effective health information exchange, healthcare organizations need more than a series of connections between each other. They need assurance that the data being exchanged is meaningful and to know it will be delivered when and where they need it.

Founded in 2014, Health Gorilla provides access to actionable patient data, supporting a diverse set of clinical use cases and improving outcomes across the country. We work with some of the leading companies in digital health, including Oscar Health, MEDITECH, Virta Health, and many others. Health Gorilla is one of the organizations whose application has been accepted for onboarding as a candidate Qualified Health Information Network and must now successfully complete testing and onboarding before official designation as a QHIN.

As a Senior Java Software Engineer at Health Gorilla, you will report to the Engineering Manager on the Core Development team. You will be a part of building a world-class Health Gorilla Clinical Network. You will work with other teams at Health Gorilla, from marketing and sales to a product to research, scope, and implement new products and features of Health Gorilla Clinical Network. You will need to see the "big picture" and apply software engineering skills to it. We are looking for someone who have both Java Web Application Development and Database backgrounds to participate in our product development and support.
