Principal Software Engineer - Search Team (ML/NLP/AI)

First and foremost, Kyruuvians care deeply about our vision to enable human beings to care for human beings, our mission, and our CORE values: 

Caring – We care about doing the right thing, in the right way, every time. 
Ownership – We own both our successes and our mistakes, taking responsibility and always learning how to be better.
Respect – We respect and celebrate the individual traits that enable each of us, our customers, our providers, and our patients, to be the best that we can be. 
Empowerment – We embrace a culture that supports everyone’s ability to contribute and lead.

Here’s what that would mean for you in this role and check out our engineering blog here!

About Kyruus's Search Team
At Kyruus, the journey for a patient begins with the ability to match that patient with the right provider (e.g. doctor).  The matching platform that is built by the search team is what drives this experience. Given a rich data set and our custom clinical library, we provide the ability for a patient to search by provider name, specialty, or a specific condition and then further fine tune those results to ultimately give a list of providers that best match the patient’s needs.
 
The Search & API team ‘s mission is to connect humans to the right care by connecting them to the right data. Today, this API is used on our customers’ websites to allow patients to search for care based on their needs in order to find the best match. The API is also used in our customers call centers, doctor’s offices, etc to provide a full, multi-channel access solution.  
 
The Search & API team is responsible for managing the flow of information from Kyruus to external consumers. The team manage’s the Elasticsearch infrastructure, feature modeling, data ingestion, and the Flask API used both internally and externally.  We are also responsible for the translation to different languages allowing our customers to provide the same experience to non-english speaking consumers. 
 
 
Caring
You’ll design and write code (lots!) across multiple applications to make progress toward assigned tasks on the product roadmap and/or planned customer commitments.
