WFH Flexible Remote
Job Type

At Springbuk, our vision is to prevent disease with data. We are creating real change in healthcare by empowering smarter decision-making via our Health Intelligence platform. Our team is nationwide, we work hard, we win together, and we share an inspiring company culture.

On the Data Management Support team, an Analyst is responsible for analyzing our clients’ healthcare data–evaluating raw data for usability, ensuring its successful mapping through our pipeline, and understanding its representation on our platforms.  Along with other Support Analysts, you will use SQL, Python, Slack, Jira, and your analytic skills to help our colleagues answer client questions about their data.  For example, this could mean explaining a data anomaly or setting expectations for remediating a data issue and then seeing that remediation through to completion.  Ultimately the Data Management Support team understands, defends, and facilitates the integrity of Springbuk’s healthcare data and its pipeline, so that clients can use our platforms to confidently produce actionable healthcare insights.

Here’s what you will do:

  • Work on a team of data analysts to ensure the quality, coverage, and accuracy of healthcare claims and eligibility data
  • Develop and maintain data quality software tools to analyze data, detect errors, and report anomalies
  • Use SQL and Python to perform data analysis and validation
  • Interpret Springbuk’s Data Quality Reports to ensure accurate data delivery to clients
  • Analyze data for reported client issues, find inconsistencies, and make adjustments to our data pipeline to prevent further issues
  • Review our data pipeline’s Quality Assurance checks performed during the data normalization process
  • Complete audits of client data using vendor-provided control reporting; communicate with vendors to resolve issues as needed
  • Engage with people in other roles at Springbuk, including Data Engineers, Client Success Managers, and Implementation Project Managers to answer questions and resolve client issues
  • Develop and maintain strategies, standards, and best practices for ensuring data quality
  • Review and revise data mapping logic as it relates to data quality enhancements
  • Develop coding and software skills with mentorship from Springbuk’s broader Technology organization

A successful candidate will have:

  • Excellent problem solving and critical thinking skills
  • Excellent communication skills with technical and non-technical teammates
  • High level of curiosity, with ability to conduct and present self-directed research
  • Strong organizational and time management skills
  • Strong ability to analyze and visualize data
  • Strong knowledge of relational databases and SQL
  • Readiness to build and maintain custom tools using Python and Ruby
  • Readiness to work on an agile team: short iterations, issue tracking, version control, QA, etc.
  • Readiness to work in a continuous delivery environment
  • Readiness to work at a dynamic scale-up company with a SaaS product

Here’s what your team will do:

Our Data Integration, Management, and Quality teams are responsible for understanding and validating the quality of our client’s healthcare data.

  • Writing and implementing new mapping logic for claims, eligibility, and ancillary data types
  • Reviewing data quality reporting and triaging issues
  • Analyzing client reported data issues and finding a path to resolution
  • Adjusting our data pipeline per issues identified internally or externally
  • Working with vendors and internal stakeholders to correct observed data issues
  • Brainstorming and implementing new anomaly checks in data quality reporting software

Here’s how you will get ramped up for success:

  • 30 days - Learn our product, our architecture, our processes and standards, and make meaningful contributions
  • 60 days - Learn the roadmap for your team and help design and plan upcoming projects
