Data Engineer

Company Overview:

ClaimsHero is on a mission to ensure everyone gets the care they need and coverage they deserve. As a venture-backed seed stage generative AI startup, we’re challenging the 850M denied U.S. health claims each year. With algorithms and obstacles increasingly driving inappropriate denials, patients are desperately seeking help and providers are struggling to keep up. We amplify patient voices with AI-powered appeals that extract, match and generate powerful evidence in minutes.

Our vision is to level the playing field, making it easy to eliminate barriers to essential care that result in poor health, financial strain, and medical debt. We’re building a team of mavericks, creators, explorers, architects, protectors, navigators and storytellers. You will work directly with our physician-led founding team, including experts in data science, healthcare policy and healthcare technology.
