Sr. Data Architect

Jasper Health is a fast-paced company with a noble mission to provide a digital experience to improve the lives of cancer patients and their caregivers throughout their treatment and remission journeys. The company announced its official launch  and was covered by high impact media outlets including USA Today , and HIT Consultant . A few months later, Jasper announced its first large-scale client with Employer Direct Healthcare which covers over 2MM lives across hundreds of employers. Jasper Health is funded and supported by Redesign Health , with a recent round of funding led by 7wire Ventures , known for such digital health stand outs as Livongo, which merged in an $18.5 billion transaction with Teladoc late last year.

We are currently focused on the 100M+ patients living with cancer, as well as their loved ones who provide care and support throughout treatment and recovery. 38% of people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, yet no one plans for it. Of those, 65% don’t know what to expect, leading them to feel overwhelmed and out of control—ultimately affecting both their quality of care and quality of life.


What We’re Building

In late 2020 we launched our first product, the Jasper Smart Planner which enables patients to organize their care and track daily symptoms and side effects. This year, we followed these initial features with medication tracking, biometric tracking (including a Fitbit integration), a tailored content library, and we recently launched Recommendations—providing patients with personalized suggestions for clinical and care-based actions. We are seeing incredibly strong early traction with both consumers and the B2B marketplace, and Jasper recently passed 11,000 registered members.


Reporting to the Chief Data Scientist, the Sr. Data Architect is responsible for the strategic direction and leadership for the overall data operations, which includes architecting and building the Jasper Data Warehouse, ETL processes and framework and the BI environment. This role is to effectively and efficiently manage the architecture of Jasper’s data operations to enable Jasper to deliver data driven experiences for our members. As the personalized data driven experiences increase, so too will the enrollment into and engagement with Jasper increase. This crucial role allows Jasper to fulfill the mission of helping and improving the lives of cancer patients and their loved ones.
