Senior Infrastructure Engineer

Position Description

PathologyWatch is seeking a senior infrastructure engineer to join the application development team and help guide server-side systems. This role will assist with and own parts of the critical path infrastructure that uploads, processes, and displays high-resolution images to our pathology and dermatology users who utilize the image to make critical patient diagnosis. The architecture has to remain HIPAA compliant while being cost-effective on image rendering and file mobility. 

A successful candidate will work well with others and be very thoughtful about their work. This is software that handles sensitive medical information, and the level of quality control needs to be high. 

Work in a startup or experience leading a team is a plus. This position requires a high degree of personal responsibility for application integrity but allows for a significant amount of freedom and individual thinking. The current team has nine engineers, mixing AI, front end, back end, and UX roles and strives for a highly collaborative environment.

Company Overview

PathologyWatch is a company that specializes in improving pathology through artificial intelligence on top of modernized software tools. The company is led by Dan Lambert, a successful serial entrepreneur and graduate of Harvard Business School, and Greg Osmond, a Dermatopathologist trained at Harvard Medical School. The Salt Lake-based company sells to Dermatologists who are looking to digitize their workflows and leverage our AI tools to improve skin cancer diagnostics. The company is venture-backed by leading firms and has raised ~$40M. The team is dedicated to fighting skin cancer globally, bringing skin cancer diagnostics to underserved areas in the US and abroad. PathologyWatch is currently a team of ~50 people and growing quickly.

 

Position Summary

The PathologyWatch team is looking to add an experienced infrastructure engineer to round out the current team and help solve infrastructure and system scalability problems. The current stack is service-based, utilizing a Kubernetes cluster hosted on AWS managed through Terraform. The application is built with Python, Django, PostgreSQL, and React. Our current infrastructure through Kubernetes consists of a main python-based docker image and then several specialty services for higher volume and AI use. We deploy weekly and have actively maintained a 99.99% uptime. A list of potential projects are:

  • Improve stability and speed of biopsy slide import infrastructure. Independent pathology laboratories upload digitally scanned specimens (glass slides) through our uploader client to S3, where an asynchronous task processes and imports the image to be viewed by internal and external Dermatopathologists. Each specimen is roughly 500 MB – 1 GB in size. The images are served via similar technology as google maps, serving up small individual images with the relevant data as a user interacts with the larger image. This is efficient but trades off potentially high storage costs and the need for fine-tuned, high volume, small image request scaling.
  • Utilize existing telemetry, monitoring, and auditing tools to improve storage cost scaling (datadog suite)
  • Improve tooling that provides anonymized medical data for AI research
  • Assist with improvements to semi-real time AI classification pipeline
  • Suggest and identify infosec and security best practices
  • Own and maintain VPN and access management systems
