Daybreak Health (www.daybreakhealth.com) is building the leading digital mental health system for youth. Our mission is to create a world where every young person benefits from mental health support.
Our mental health system removes all barriers to effective care for young people: we create easy access through our school and pediatrician partners, deliver effective care through evidence-based online therapy that is integrated with technology, and bring consumer cost to zero through our funding partnerships with government agencies and health insurance. Over the next 5 years we plan to serve more than 25 million youth who need mental health support.
As a team, we are all aligned with our North Star mission. We collaborate and execute incredibly well by doing more with less (we value efficiency and output over hours worked!) and we communicate clearly using writing (vs. unnecessary meetings). We are fully remote with team members across the country, and will stay that way. We value mental health: the willingness to be vulnerable is a requirement to join Daybreak (for example by communicating when we make mistakes). We have regular mental health days (at least once per quarter!). Last but not least, we value fun and hold regular virtual and in-person activities.
We’re a YC-backed company that raised its Seed from Maven Ventures and just raised our Series A from a Top 10 VC (announcement coming soon). We’re a rocketship, with our revenue more than tripling between July and November of 2021, and more acceleration in sight. We’re hiring for critical roles now to expand nationally and have an even bigger 2022.
You'll be the first Data Engineer on a twelve person team and will work directly with the CTO.
Today Daybreak’s data infrastructure consists of ChartIO, a small PostgreSQL DB system owned by our Rails app and Salesforce.
We’re in the progress of replacing ChartIO and want you to lay down a strong foundation upon which to build the following functionality:
Your first tasks will be the following:
The CTO has some opinions about how this system should be built (AirByte + DBT + PostgreSQL) but is explicitly hiring you for your expertise and will accord you the space and trust required to be successful in your role.
Once the core infrastructure is in place you will support them and add new data pipelines as necessary. You will be included in our SDLC (detailed below) and will be expected to collaborate on (and sometimes directly lead) Technical Proposals and implement the data pipeline components defined within them. This process will allow you to define not only the details of the solutions we implement but the timelines on which we implement them. You will be looked to almost immediately as the Subject Matter Expert (SME) on our entire data infrastructure by both the CTO and Product.
In order to be capable of this work we expect that you will be extremely skilled at data schema design, data pipeline design, data integrity validation, data integrity remediation & documentation writing.
You are expected to have opinions on workflow engines, feature toggles and asynchronous processing. You are not expected to be a microservices wiz, a DevOps Ninja or a full time DBA.
Lastly, you will help Engineering as a whole to deliver on our Technical Vision, which, if lived up to, we believe will provide the opportunity for the business to succeed.
We generally believe this job is doable by someone with three to five years of industry experience composed of at least two recent years architecting, implementing and maintaining data pipelines.
While we're a small company, we're on a growth path and can help you grow your skills. Depending on your interests and the growth of the company we can help you pursue one of the following growth paths:
Daybreak Engineering is kinda nuts. We allocate time for tech debt. We run a Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) that allows us to set our own deadlines for projects. We measure our productivity in both tickets punched and business value delivered. We're constantly looking for ways to buy solutions to our problems rather than build them. We understand that Software Engineering isn't just programming, it's programming plus time. We believe that it is worse to build the wrong thing than to build nothing at all. We are proactive instead of reactive.
We know where we're going, and we believe that through good faith debate we can get there. Check out our Technical Vision here for more: Technical Vision 2021-09-02
As a member of the Engineering Team you can expect:
Daybreak's hiring process aims to be doable in about six hours end to end spread across a calendar week.
