Staff Engineer, Software - Applications

Omnicell is the world leader in pharmacy robotics, and we’re expanding beyond inventory management into inventory analytics . The Performance Center tech-enabled service helps hospitals and health systems understand how meds flow through their business, from the loading dock to the nurse’s glove, and then apply clinical expertise and advanced machine learning to uncover opportunities to adjust that flow to improve safety, cost, efficiency, and patient outcomes. And the next step for us is to help busy clinicians act on those opportunities by building efficient, industry-leading workflows.

To do that, we take terabytes of data from thousands of devices and translate it to simple, actionable steps our clients can take to improve their overall performance. This is achieved through a sleek new microservices architecture primarily composed of Kafka, Spark, PostgreSQL, .NET Core, and Angular all running in AWS.
