San Francisco, CA, Washington, D.C., Chicago IL

Rally Health improves health and saves money with our friendly, easy-to-use products that help people improve their diet and fitness, shop for health benefits, and find the best doctor at the right price for their needs.

We do it at scale, with tens of millions of reachable accounts rapidly growing every year. Our mission is to drive and support the systems that power this growth with nimble, safe, secured and monitored self-service infrastructure and tools, and we are looking for YOU to join our team.

You should expect to use tools such as Splunk, Datadog, and New Relic to get a global understanding of the system, but also be able to break-glass troubleshoot in a shell on individual machines.On-call rotation is part of the role, as you might expect, but we support each other and work hard to make that not suck.

Since we manage healthcare data, we adhere to HIPAA and related laws, and good decision-making and data-defensive thinking are essential for our team members. We are especially interested in folks who have strong experience in DB administration (relational and/or NoSQL), data pipelines, or who have worked in a HITRUST-guided or regulated environment.

You would provide operational support of our ever growing data needs with modern DevOps practices: automate, monitor, scale, test, repeat.

Our culture is important to us and we cultivate it carefully. We do not strive for heroism and while we recognize and reward individual accomplishments, we know that ultimately, teams win. Most of our projects are paired work and several of our team members are embedded in development teams. We are enthusiastic about infrastructure as code, scalability and building partnerships with engineering that foster a healthy DevOps culture.

Our projects are run without regard to geography. You will be working on teams with members in Washington, D.C., Chicago, and San Francisco, and we welcome applications to any of those offices.
