Job Title: Data Engineer

Department: Engineering

Who We Are:

As our co-founders transitioned from military to civilian life, they encountered barriers and inefficiencies navigating the most basic health and social services. Together, they set out to improve that experience for others. Recognizing that social care is essential for better health outcomes, they embarked on a mission to connect people to the care they need, when they need it, in communities across the country. Unite Us has developed an intuitive and seamless technology solution that goes beyond the traditional referral method. We work side-by-side with local organizations, and track data and outcomes to build coordinated care networks that support all aspects of community health. Unite Us is boldly changing the nation’s care delivery system. If you want to do well and do good, join Unite Us– we can build healthier communities together.


Unite Us has experienced rapid growth over the past couple of years. As we have grown, our clients’ skills and requirements around data have grown more sophisticated. Data has long been a foundation of our system.

To do this, we need to build an experienced team of data technologists who want to have an impact on healthcare across the entire country.


The impact of SDoH data is revolutionizing the healthcare industry.
