We all depend on healthcare throughout our lifetimes, for ourselves, and our families and friends, but it is notoriously difficult to navigate and understand. As an industry that comprises 20% of the US economy we think healthcare should work better for all of us. At Collective Health we believe it’s time for a new day in healthcare where as members we are informed and empowered to make the right care choices when the decisions are urgent and critical. 

Data Reliability Engineering at Collective Health is a discipline combining software, data and systems engineering skills. We apply modern data platform infrastructure, systems, architecture, and development practices to give our customers a more reliable, scalable and secure healthcare data management experience. Data Reliability Engineers (DRE) will keep database systems that support all user-facing services running smoothly. DREs are a blend of database engineering and administration gearheads and software developers that apply sound engineering principles, operational discipline and mature software development and automation, specializing in databases (PostgreSQL in particular). In that capacity, DREs are peers to SREs and bring database expertise to the SRE and Infrastructure teams and our engineering teams.

Partnering with engineering teams, Data Reliability Engineers build on public cloud services to deliver a comprehensive platform that enables our developers to deliver high-quality, impactful, scalable, and reliable services. As a broader group of Site Reliability Engineers including those focused on infrastructure and platform, we collaborate and identify themes and solutions to benefit Collective Health at large, contribute to regular knowledge sharing activities and retrospectives, and support one another to gain knowledge, remove barriers, and grow as individuals and a team.

Together, we're building the next generation healthcare platform, and proud to be on the leading edge of this important mission.
