Software for hospital supply chains to improve healthcare value

Lumere’s data visualization team develops scalable, automated analyses and data-driven interpretations of those analyses. These empower our healthcare system customers to make strategic decisions backed by scientific research and their own data to provide high-value care for their patients. We are passionate about using data visualization to improve the value derived from healthcare. Our team values diverse perspectives and backgrounds. We value creativity and build up our toolset in a collaborative, consensus-based manner.

As a Data Visualization Intern, you’ll help learn and advance our component-based visualization and analytical library. Whether it’s looking to provide advanced interactivity in our visualizations or working to scale commonly used visualization techniques, you’ll have the opportunity to work on our most impactful data problems.

Results from the analyses you’ll support will guide hospital administrators to make evidence-based decisions when working with clinicians and doctors to select medical devices. This allows health systems to reduce costs and improve care for patients. You can help our customers understand which data points are significant enough to make decisions with and which are simply noise.

You will thrive if you love exploring datasets, applying novel data manipulation and communication techniques, identifying and implementing performance improvements, supporting health systems to interpret their utilization and patient data, improving healthcare value for patients, and solving front-end engineering problems.

What you’ll do:
– Project-based on-the-job training
– Mentorship and networking with data visualizers, analysts, designers, and scientists
– Learn and practice pair programming and other team-wide knowledge sharing efforts
– Learn and practice submitting and reviewing code changes
– Work with and support Lumere’s data visualization component library while adhering to data visualization and engineering best practices
– Help to develop code standards that lead to strong performance and long-term maintainability

Day-to-day:
– Attend meetings with data visualization team
– Write queries to explore data questions related to quality assurance and new features
– Dig into front-end code to support improvements to visualizations and dashboards
– Meet remotely with other Lumere staff to learn more about healthcare tech and software product development
– Necessary requirements to hit the ground running:
– Eager to learn and to share
– Keen collaborative attitude
– Interest or experience in front end development (we use HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and the JavaScript framework Vue.js), open-source visualization tools using JavaScript (d3.js and Vega), data analysis and manipulation (Python), and relational database querying (PostgreSQL)
– Enrolled in an academic program, or recently graduated: the major doesn’t matter and could be from journalism, computer science, public health, math, or pre-med; what does matter is your interest in communicating health-related data
