About us:
Grand Rounds is a new kind of healthcare company. Founded in 2011, the company is on a mission to raise the standard of healthcare for everyone, everywhere. The Grand Rounds team goes above and beyond to connect and guide people to the highest quality healthcare available for themselves and their loved ones. Grand Rounds creates products and services that give people the best possible healthcare experience. Named a 2019 Best Place to Work by Glassdoor and Rock Health’s 2018 Fastest Growing Company, Grand Rounds works with inspiring employers and doctors to empower them to be the change agents we need to make our shared vision a reality.
The role:
The goal of Grand Rounds is to get patients to the best possible healthcare outcomes. We believe that higher quality care leads to better outcomes which in turn leads to lower overall healthcare cost. To demystify and remove the complexity from healthcare, we need to identify the patients who need us and why. We need to understand what is the better path they could be on. We need to understand how we can engage with them and what services we should be providing them.
This opportunity is ideal for someone with an economics, population health or similarly quantitative background. Someone with the analytical instincts to discover unanticipated insights from data and the communication skills to present these findings in a compelling manner to internal and external customers. As a quantitative researcher, you will collaborate with multiple internal teams, including our analytics, care operations, engineering, and data science teams to dive into healthcare data and make actionable recommendations on how Grand Rounds can help patients get to better outcomes at a lower cost. The role offers the chance to develop a wide range of skills while tackling new, unanticipated challenges on a daily basis. In particular, you will develop a deep understanding of the healthcare system and the impact of medical decision making on both health outcomes and spending. We’re looking for candidates with a passion for healthcare, an eagerness to learn new skills, and the desire to do whatever it takes to help the team.

An Insider's view of Grand Rounds

What's something quirky about your company?

At 3pm everyday, folks from IT and engineering do planks and increase the time by a couple seconds every day. I'm waiting for them to restart the clock before I join in again, but it's a nice ritual. We are a healthcare company, after all!

Megan

Engineering Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

To meet the emerging needs presented by COVID-19, we are expanding our capabilities and offering new product packages, building on our core clinical and technological strengths. When the GR team is passionate about a problem, we can deliver life changing products and services to our Members with agile speed

Kelsey

Chief of Staff

What does career growth look like on your team?

We're principled in our approach. Here at Grand Rounds I spend a lot of time understanding where an engineer is going, and then working with them to build out a custom plan to get there. Career growth at Grand Rounds is much more personalized vs. following a standard career ladder description.

Nick

Senior Manager, Data Engineering

What is your vision for the company?

Our vision is to personalize healthcare by leveraging technology and combining with the right human connection to navigate everyone, everywhere to the best medical outcomes. Think Jarvis (from Iron Man) as your personal healthcare assistant!

Anant Gupta

Sr. Director, Engineering

What makes someone successful on your team?
