Entry Software Engineer


Datavant is a rapidly growing healthcare technology company with a mission to connect the world’s healthcare data. By eliminating data silos in the healthcare industry, we aim to unlock opportunities to accelerate medical research, and help organizations design better ways to facilitate access, affordability, and quality of care to improve patient outcomes.

By joining Datavant today, you’re stepping onto a highly collaborative team that is passionate about creating transformative change in healthcare. We look for people who are smart, nice and get things done. We invest in our people and believe in hiring for high-potential and humble individuals who can rapidly grow their responsibilities as the company scales.

Datavant is looking for software engineers who love big data, thrive in an entrepreneurial environment, and who share our drive to transform the healthcare industry. In exchange for your time and talent, we'll give you ownership and an unprecedented amount of responsibility from day one. You can read more about a day in the life of a Datavant engineer here.

We’re firm believers in growing our team members.  Don’t know our tech stack well? No problem. You’ll work alongside our engineers and enjoy mentorship and guidance from experienced leaders and learn what you need to succeed on the job. At Datavant, we believe in learning by doing, so we give you access to our code base on your first day. By the end of your first week, you will have built, fixed (and probably broken!) things in our production code. That’s not only okay; it’s expected. One of our guiding values is "give more responsibility, have fewer rules”.

Datavant is a US and Canada-based fully remote, distributed team. This allows you to work from wherever brings you the greatest joy at whatever time allows you to live the fullest life. We value community, and we do that at Datavant through in-person onboarding, frequent in-person events (both fun and work!), virtual game nights, transparent and reliable company communication, and more. Perhaps most importantly, we believe in more responsibility and fewer rules, so if you have something in mind to strengthen the Datavant culture, we encourage you to introduce it to the team!

At Datavant, we have a bias toward action. We believe hard work leads to personal and professional growth. We celebrate pushing outside of our comfort zone, and we’re growing rapidly, which means more opportunity for growth and impact for everyone! Want to join the Datavant team? Here’s what you need:


  • You have a deep understanding of and an ability to thoughtfully discuss topics typically covered in a BS in CS program
  • You have 6+ months of professional experience as a software engineer (internships, personal projects, etc.)
  • You are exceptional at writing scalable, production-ready code (exact tech stack doesn't matter -- it can be learned on the job)
  • You are competent at building and scaling data flows
  • You are great at working with non-artificial intelligence: a good team player, and an exceptional communicator
  • You are ready to thrive in a fast-paced, remote work environment
  • You are excited by the ambiguity of an entrepreneurial, rapidly growing company, and able to juggle many projects and responsibilities
  • You are smart, nice, and get things done
  • Bonus points if you have a passion for building a big business that transforms the healthcare industry
  • Bonus points if you have a demonstrated interest in healthcare 
  • Bonus points if you are excited to learn and work with our tech stack:

We are all responsible for stewarding a high-performance culture in which all Datavanters belong and thrive. We are proud to be an equal opportunity employer and welcome applications from people of all backgrounds and experiences.
