Arcadia Healthcare Solutions

  • Software Engineer, Backend Web Development

  • Overview

  is building a team to increase the efficiency of its data ingestion pipeline. If concepts such as build software from scratch, big data, stream processing, DevOps, paranoid security, and team building are attractive to you, read on!

  is a privately-owned healthcare analytics company founded in 2002 and based in the Boston, Massachusetts area with offices in Burlington, Massachusetts; Rockford, Illinois; Seattle, Washington; and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with dozens of remote employees nationwide. We collect electronic health record (EHR) data from medical providers, such as doctors and hospitals, and billing data from those and insurance companies to create a unified health record across multiple providers for the purposes of studying patient population health. It is previously known as Arcadia Healthcare Solutions.

    More simply, we process a high volume, velocity, and variety of valuable data in order to build amazing visualizations and easily-consumed reports that help doctors make better decisions about their patients' preventative, maintenance, and emergency care, driving down costs and enabling better patient outcomes.


    Even more simply, we help doctors tell patients how they can be healthier and how they can get better when they're sick by enabling those doctors to see a patient's record with every doctor they see.

    Team-specific details

    Folks presently on this team prefer development on Apple Macbook Pro laptops. We can accomodate Microsoft Windows on Arcadia's standard-issue PC laptop, as well. Alternatively, we permit use of any Linux distribution that can comply with our security requirements.

    Travel and homebase expectations

    • This position is targeted for the Greater Pittsburgh area. Relocation is expected with reasonable assistance available.
    • This position and all positions on this particular team are considered remote positions but do have an expectation of group office hours at least one day per week.
      • Applicants are expected to reside within tolerable commute distance of our Pittsburgh office.
        • What constitutes "tolerable" is up to you, but…
        • We consider "tolerable" to be a distance that you could travel if your presence was required in the office every day for an extended period of time.
    • Our Pittsburgh-area office is in a brand-new building in Green Tree, seconds off of I-376 and the 38 bus route.
    • Infrequent travel to other offices and to conferences may be required.

    Tech stack

    We're writing on-premises software in Rust, Java, and Scala. We're writing web apps and services in Scala and Ruby using frameworks and tools popular in those ecosystems.

    Importantly, we're open-minded and consider the right tool for the job based on its merits while considering its popularity, ease of hiring, and room for contributions to the state of the art in the ecosystem.

    Other things we are working with include Amazon Web Services, Apache Mesos, Apache NiFi, Docker, Atlassian Confluence and JIRA, Github, Travis CI, Appveyor, HashiCorp Terraform, and more.

    The software this team writes will be deployed on Microsoft Windows and a variety of Linux distributions, so experience with either or both is valuable.
