Castlight's Engineering team needs an excellent Data Analyst (contractor) who has experience analyzing complex data using databases and SQL.
We are a small team of engineers and analysts who have the goal of extracting useful information from messy healthcare data. We use modern tools (Python/Ruby/MySQL/Greenplum/Git) and work pragmatically to take on one of the biggest challenges in one of the biggest industries.
We need someone to work with our data platform to help launch customers for our various products, to analyze data to answer complex healthcare network and pricing questions and to communicate results and insights.
To succeed in this role, you'll need to be attentive to detail, versatile and curious. You must have an innate desire to understand the healthcare domain and its data in great detail, and to be a go-to-person for data-related questions. If the data doesn't meet the assumptions you've learned you must be ready to refresh your assumptions and think of new tools to address these trends. Finally, you should want to communicate results and collaborate on data analyses with both the Engineering and Business teams.
