Principal Software Engineer - Search Team
 
First and foremost, Kyruuvians care deeply about our vision to enable human beings to care for human beings, our mission, and our CORE values:
  • Caring – We care about our clients, their patients, and each other.
  • Ownership – We own our success and have the courage to make decisions.
  • Respect – We respect and enjoy each other's journey, experiences, and gifts.
  • Empowerment – We empower our team, our clients, their providers and patients to make the right decisions.
About Kyruus's Search Team

At Kyruus, the journey for a patient begins with the ability to match that patient with the right provider (e.g. doctor). The matching platform that is built by the search team is what drives this experience. Given a rich data set and our custom clinical library, we provide the ability for a patient to search by provider name, specialty, or a specific condition and then further fine tune those results to ultimately give a list of providers that best match the patients needs.

 

The search team’s mission is to provide a robust API that allows our internal teams and our customers to build a variety of applications with the ultimate goal to match the patient with the right provider. Today, this API is used on our customers websites in the form of Find a Doc solutions that allows a patient to search for care based on their needs and filter down the results to get to the best match. The API is also used in our customers call centers, doctor’s offices, etc to provide a full multi channel access solution.

 

The search team is responsible for managing the entire Elasticsearch infrastructure, creation/update of the indices, and building and delivering the Python/Flask based API internally, and externally to our customers. We are also responsible for the translation to different languages allowing our customers to provide the same experience to non-english speaking consumers. 

 
Here’s what that would mean for you in the Senior Software Engineer role on the Search Team.

You will also leverage the AWS ecosystem to build serverless applications and use standard tooling like SAM, CodeDeploy, and Bitbucket Pipelines to automate the deployment.
  • Exceed the expectations and requirements of internal and external customers with high quality designs and code
  • Assess business value, tech debt, and tradeoffs during task prioritization.
You’ll use your experience in/familiarity with technologies relevant to Kyruus to:
  • Build, scale, and deliver dynamic and highly-available enterprise solutions

  • You are a highly productive engineer committing a substantial amount of high-quality code reliably and on time to help the team achieve product roadmap goals and customer commits.
  • You regularly write excellent documentation.
  • You follow Agile practices in your daily and weekly work and are extremely dependable.
  • You mentor engineers on a wide range of technical areas that you’re a subject matter expert and share your knowledge on relevant topics with Kyruuvians by presenting at Lunch & Learns, Technical Brown Bags, and internal demos. 
  • When presented with challenging situations or unexpected obstacles to your team’s progress or that of cross-functional projects, you unblock these projects by developing creative solutions and mitigating technical risks.
  • You anticipate and develop strategies for future requirements and trends within your product area and/or dependent areas that share adjacencies with your team.

An Insider's view of Kyruus

What's something quirky about your company?

We Kyruuvians add k’s and “:u”s to commonly used words, tools, APIs, pretty much anything that contributes to our own growing lingo. For example, we have an employee recognition program that’s called Ku:udos, Kamunda is Kyruus API wrapper for Camunda (a workflow engine), Downloadu:ur is a tool to deliver reports to clients, and you get the idea!

Vice President, Engineering

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Our platform ingests, parses and organizes data from health systems' provider and scheduling data, providing customers with a platform to make finding a doctor and booking an appointment as easy as booking a seat on a flight. Scaling our match capabilities with new sources of data, algorithms and presenting it simply are current areas of focus.
