Data Engineering has teams which are responsible for collecting, curating, normalizing and matching data from hundreds of disparate sources from around the globe. Data sources include scientific publications, clinical trials, conference presentations and claims among others. In addition to developing the necessary data pipelines to keep every piece of information updated in real-time and provide the users with relevant insights, the teams are also building automated, scalable and low-latency systems for the recognition and linking of various types of entities, such as linking researchers and physicians to their scholarly research and clinical trials. As we rapidly expand the markets we serve and the breadth and depth of data we want to collect for our customers, the team must grow and scale to meet that demand.

- Work with various tools including generative AI and open-source libraries, to standardize data and implement scalable distributed pipelines. 

- You’ll develop efficient distributed algorithms for processing and joining large datasets, as well as writing clean, modular code that is easy to maintain. 

- Additionally, you will lead the creation of proof of concepts (POCs) and drive projects to production-ready solutions, contributing to internal process improvements and infrastructure scalability.


You possess robust hands-on technical expertise encompassing both conventional and non-conventional ETL methodologies, alongside proficiency in T-SQL and Spark-SQL. Your skill set includes mastery of multiple programming languages such as Python (PySpark), Java, or Scala, as well as adeptness in streaming and other advanced data processing techniques. As a self-starter, you excel in managing projects across all stages, from requirement gathering and design to coding, testing, implementation, and ongoing support.
