Python Platform Engineer

Our Mission

Despite lots of hard work and the best of intentions, Healthcare largely remains a fragmented industry, with as much as $1 trillion wasted annually according to a recent Health Affairs article.  

Simply put, Apervita is on a mission to change that reality, and bring a 10X efficiency gain to healthcare. We make it easy for healthcare enterprises to create and connect streamlined applications with the systems, data and organizations they need to, helping them save lives, improve outcomes and reduce costs.

We are the first healthcare cloud platform.

Apervita is the nation’s first purpose-built for healthcare cloud platform which allows users to easily and rapidly build and share applications and information.  Applications on the Apervita platform are used by over 2,000 hospitals today, which we expect to grow to 3,000 by the end of the year. Organizations from the Centers for Disease Control to The Joint Commission to some of the nation’s largest Payers use the Apervita platform to help them reach their clinical, financial and operational goals.

Backed by top healthcare VCs and corporate investors such as Optum Ventures, The Pritzker Group and Baird Capital, we are entering a phase of unprecedented accelerated growth. In 2018, we grew annual recurring revenue 1100% and we expect to more than double it during 2019. We’ve added millions of lines of code, added dozens products to the platform and we’re gaining rapid adoption of our platform from industry leaders.

As we grow and accelerate our position as the leading cloud platform for healthcare, we need help to solve hard problems.  As a team, we seek to be bold in our technology, passionate in pursuit of our mission and humble in our interactions with customers and partners. Every day will start and end around our “why”; to create real human impact through technology.

Join us.
