Making Oral Care Simpler and More Accessible
As everyone knows, dental health is critical to overall health. Unfortunately, dental insurance is too complicated, too confusing, and too expensive for dentists and patients alike. As a result, 40% of US consumers do not have dental coverage, 50% of US consumers do not visit a dentist each year, and dentists struggle to make their businesses successful managing complicated insurance plans with low reimbursement fees, coverage limits and claims denials.
Our mission is to make professional oral care accessible to everyone while improving dental practice performance.
Kleer is doing something about this. Kleer connects dentists directly with patients and employers, eliminating the inefficiency, cost, and hassle of the middleman. Using the Kleer cloud-based platform, dentists easily design, implement and manage their own dental care plans, offering them directly to patients and employers. The result is affordable, comprehensive dental coverage that works for dental practices and enables patients to get the professional oral care they need.
The marketing opportunity is massive – there are 150,000 dentists in the US and over 43 million Americans are uninsured but regularly go to the dentists. Kleer launched in January of 2018 and has experienced explosive growth. As a result, Kleer is looking for a Back End Software Engineer who is passionate, entrepreneurial, innovative, creative, empathetic, and unafraid to take initiative — energized both by the challenge of building a business and developing a product that makes dental care more affordable and accessible.
As a Kleer Back End Software Engineer, you will be responsible for building critical infrastructure that manages massive data resources for our customers. This position will report directly to the CTO and requires extensive collaboration with the product team (i.e., product manager and engineers).
The Back End Software Engineer will help architect, build, secure and maintain various data pipelines, warehouses and web services used by all branches of the business. This includes (but is not limited to):
Contribute to an agile team of data scientists, developers, DevOps and product managers
Partner with data scientists and engineers to help design and build web services that efficiently deliver advanced analytics and data resources
Take proof-of-concept algorithms and analytic designs and generate robust, efficient, modular, well- documented, and well-tested code
Build advanced data lakes, pipelines, warehouses and web services that meet our customer needs
Become an expert at data engineering
Integrate massive data repositories both external and internal
Manage the entire data infrastructure, in collaboration with other engineers
Research new technologies to make our data infrastructure and web services secure, fast, and reliable
Communicate effectively and collaborate frequently with peers.
