FULL TIME

As healthcare providers embrace digital transformation, virtual care, and cloud-first strategies, the underlying healthcare IT infrastructure has increasingly become decentralized, creating many more gaps that can result in patients’ protected health information (PHI) being put at greater risk. Existing cybersecurity solutions address critical aspects of securing the healthcare IT system but are not adequately addressing hidden vulnerabilities found in clinical workflows.

Founded by David Ting, the cofounder and former CTO of Imprivata and a former appointee to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Health Care Industry Cybersecurity Task Force, Tausight will help healthcare provider CIOs, CISOs, and their IT organizations better understand the risks that are inherent in how PHI is used and then better secure their clinical workflows when clinicians access and use their patients’ PHI. 

On March 10, we announced our Series A $20 million funding, co-led by existing investors Polaris Partners and Flare Capital Partners, alongside new investor .406 Ventures. We will use this funding to expand our go-to-market team and further build out our breakthrough, healthcare-specific risk management platform.

Tausight is an exciting place to be, at an exciting time, and the best time to join us is right now. 

As a Site Reliability Engineer, your primary responsibility is to ensure that our cloud infrastructure can scale sustainably and securely through the use of automation.  You will be maintaining services once they are live by measuring and monitoring availability, latency, and overall system health.
We use a serverless technology stack rooted in Cloud Dataflow, Cloud Functions, App Engine, Pub/Sub, IoT Core with plans to expand into GKE.  We have a growing multi-tenant infrastructure, all managed by Terraform, Jenkins and other tooling. As a Tausight SRE, you will collaborate with engineering to implement changes that improve reliability and velocity for these technologies.

One of your main goals will be to minimize toil, or the amount of manual effort required to sustain production infrastructure.  By managing load and canarying releases, you’ll work to make engineering throughout Tausight more efficient, productive and secure.  

What you will do:
  • Site Reliability Engineering role with additional focus on resiliency and testing.
  • You will be responsible for implementing tooling that will enable us to continue to scale our operations, using container orchestration and other technologies like Kubernetes.
  • Help evolve and streamline CI/CD systems using all facets of the Tausight stack ranging from our build servers to our backend services.
  • Advocate for best practices around code quality, design and engineering productivity, including Source Control Management.
  • Enhance and add to our existing Stackdriver monitoring and alerting suite to ensure security and performance, leveraging tools such as Grafana or Prometheus.
  • Derive disaster recovery best practices.

 What you need:
  • 2+ years of experience in DevOps Engineering/SRE/Systems Administration.
  • Sound knowledge of provisioning, securing, monitoring and load balancing resources on a cloud platform such as GCP, AWS, or Azure.
  • Familiarity with an interpreted  Object-oriented language, such as Golang or Python.
  • Proficiency with a shell scripting language, such as Bash.
  • Familiarity with cloud transforming tools such as Terraform, CloudFormation or Ansible.
  • Experience with source control management using Git, and provisioning a CI system such as Jenkins, Gitlab, or CircleCI.
  • Exposure to Kubernetes, ECS or other container orchestration tools.
  • Analytical approach coupled with strong communication skills
  • Shares the values of ownership, diversity of thought, and empathy for our users and coworkers

Nice to Have:
  • Previous experience managing Windows Clusters with VMWare ESXi
  • Previous experience with either SQL or NoSQL Database administration

  • Previous experience with machine learning
  •  
Why Tausight?
  • We will re-invent and transform how healthcare better protects patients’ PHI from cyber threats
  • Learn how we built a multi-patented, breakthrough technology platform that will be the first-of-its-kind within the  fastest growing segment of the healthcare technology industry. 
  • Just closed a $20 million Series A financing round, backed by leading healthcare technology VCs, Polaris Partners, Flare Capital, and .406 Ventures. 
  • Highly experienced team to learn from and to help develop your personal growth. 
  • We work independently, remotely, and collaboratively. Micro-managers are not welcome.
  • Unlimited vacation; company holidays; medical/dental/eyecare.
