Cloud Security Engineer

Datica helps healthcare get on the cloud. Since 2013, we have worked with hundreds of healthcare companies—from digital health startups to hospitals to Fortune 100 enterprises—bringing them into the future. Our secret is the dirty work: No company is better at focusing on the muddy details that are the true blockers to healthcare utilizing the cloud. Datica removes the risk for digital health in the cloud. We solve the problem of HIPAA compliance in the cloud and enable secure data exchange between digital health and EHR’s. Customers and partners across healthcare trust Datica to ensure their clouds are compliant and their data is securely interoperable.

At Datica, we believe the future of value-based patient care will be powered by HIPAA compliant, scalable interoperable infrastructure. We exist to help all of healthcare transition to that future by de-risking the challenges that come with it.

We're on a mission, and you could play a critical role.

Datica is a growth stage startup. In 2019, we plan to double our customer base, double our revenue, and dramatically increase our impact on improving patient care. We are doing this through an aggressive product roadmap, a growing team, and a laser focus on the problems our customer face. The next year will be hard, but the rewards will be worth it.
