Chief Information Security Officer (CISO)

Are you interested in helping shape the healthcare security model for the public cloud? Do you want to be at the forefront of the tidal wave of healthcare technologies on AWS and Azure? Do you believe in security by design and compliance as an asset, not a roadblock or checkbox? If so, this is a unique opportunity to be at the forefront of healthcare on 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.

We are regarded as true domain experts because our team is filled with health care veterans with meaningful accomplishments. Our strategy focuses entirely on the intersection of healthcare and the cloud.

This is where you come in. We believe great products are driven by great teams and so, we work collaboratively to make things better. We also use the latest tools and techniques to solve some of the most challenging problems that our customers face. We will give you a lot of responsibility and ownership.
