Abarca is igniting a revolution in healthcare.  We built our company on the belief that with smarter technology we are redefining pharmacy benefits, but this is just the beginning.

As the Pharmaceutical Data Modeler (SQL) you will be part of a newly created Pricing & Underwriting team. This team plays a critical role in Abarca's future growth by providing strategic pricing in support of our sales processes.   In this key role you will develop and maintain pricing procedures for underwriting RFP processes, specifically all procedures around data management (data collection, data mining, data standardization and analytics). You will be responsible for selecting the appropriate analytic tools and properly using such tools to execute data management and analytic processes.

You will partner with Business Intelligence teams to define and support functional and/or architectural requirements of information delivery to ensure the integrity of project data, including extraction, storage, manipulation, processing and analysis. You will verify completeness, timeliness and accuracy of data warehouse information. Additionally, you will translate business requirements to design logical and physical data models and dashboards to monitor SLA rate performance.

  • Develop proper processes for data collection, data mining, data standardization and analytics; initiate data management and identify proper use of analytics tools (You would do this even if we didn’t pay you.)
  • Combine business knowledge and technical expertise to assist customers when evaluating or addressing business issues through use of data;
  • Partner with BI team to define and support functional and/or architectural requirements of information delivery: participate and sometimes lead in the planning, design, and creation of both standard and ad-hoc reports, Dashboards and Scorecards;
  • Assure the integrity of project data, including data extraction, storage, manipulation, processing, and analysis. Verify the completeness, timeliness, and accuracy of data warehouse information (Data, data, data... and one more data for the win.)
  • Work with business owners and technical resources to identify and address data quality issues when they arise;
  • Work closely with the BI team to determine appropriate data warehouse architecture and data modeling designs in order to maximize benefits.
  • You will create really cool dashboards and presentation materials that convey complex information clearly to various audiences (including senior leaders at the company—who may or may not be senior citizens—and among our clients).
  • Work across departments (for which your ability to be in two places at once will come in handy) to define streamlined processes
  • You’ll also analyze and report on various ad-hoc requests including market trends, sales, under/over performance and store specific analyses to provide information efficiently and promptly.
