Datavant protects, connects, and delivers the world’s health data to power better decisions and advance human health. We are a data logistics company for healthcare whose products and solutions enable organizations to move and connect data securely. Datavant has a network of networks consisting of thousands of organizations, more than 70,000 hospitals and clinics, 70% of the 100 largest health systems, and an ecosystem of 500+ real-world data partners.

By joining Datavant today, you’re stepping onto a highly collaborative, remote-first team that is passionate about creating transformative change in healthcare. We hire for three traits: we want people who are smart, nice, and get things done. We invest in our people and believe in hiring high-potential and humble individuals who can rapidly grow their responsibilities as the company scales. Datavant is a distributed, remote-first team, and we empower Datavanters to shape their working environment in a way that suits their needs.

You will:

  • Have a deep understanding of Application and Cloud security. You’ll use this knowledge to provide architectural reviews and contributions to our development teams.
  • Have a strong understanding of security controls, both those that exist in audit standards as well as practical controls that can help reduce risk and increase safety in application development environments and AWS. 
  • Work directly with security senior leadership to ensure maturity, depth, and coverage of security controls. You’ll be expected to interface with our Development Engineering leadership as well as Security Engineering leadership daily. 
  • Be fearless in security control descriptions and writing process-related elements down. The processes you build are not a castle of tone-deaf documentation but a method of enabling development teams to move faster with more clarity.
  • Review application projects our development teams build. This may mean putting eyes on code as well as working with the teams to understand the broad architecture of things being built. You’ll be very comfortable providing control feedback in a review environment to development teams. This role is not merely a +1, you’ll be adept at using your knowledge to the application of practical risk management.
  • Help define a program and execute threat modeling with our developers. You’ll be adept at making operational both threat modeling and architecture review.
  • Own new projects for advancing security in our environment. Be a deep technical expert and collaborate with others on the teams to ensure project success. Your impact here cannot be understated, you are a core contributor and have deep influence to empower our collective greatness.

What you will bring to the table: 

  • You are humble.
  • You can read and may have developed in Python in the past. You have command of the language.
  • You understand how the broad parts of a security team function and operate in unison.
  • You can articulate from start to finish what role security should play in ideation and build with development teams.
    • You have opinions and options on most of the steps.
  • You are a consummate collaborator, it’s inherent in your work behavior.
  • You value time deeply and optimize for the greatest impact.
  • 3+ years of working in architectural and threat modeling review areas.
  • 3+ years of working with compliance standards. 
    • We lean deeply into individuals who have experience and practical knowledge of applying standards in low-friction ways.
  • Broad-scoped projects don’t scare you, they energize you. However, you like to get things done fast (and help others) with limited dependencies.

Bonus points if:

  • You have FedRAMP-specific architecture experience.
  • You are often viewed as the “expert in the room” on building security controls. Development teams know they can depend on you to provide appropriate guidance and build predictable review programs.
  • You have experience with security in healthcare or other highly regulated space. Examples: HIPAA/HITRUST, SOC 2, PCI experience from an operational response standpoint.
