Engineers at VillageMD develop software to improve clinical outcomes and revolutionize how healthcare is delivered.  We're in a unique position to impact everyone in primary care from independent, family-owned practices to premier health systems. We aggregate, process, and deliver rich datasets to improve the effectiveness of primary care for our doctors and patients.  As a Principal Salesforce Engineer at VillageMD, you will be instrumental in bridging the gap between Salesforce, API’s, and our data platform, while building on tops of the SFDC platform itself. You will shape our vision for enabling technology that reduces friction for clinicians instead of increasing it with unnecessary data input. 

We’ve built our technology by standing on the shoulders of tech giants allowing us to create a flexible, scalable architecture that’s nimble enough to handle real-time messaging and data file transfers. We use validated, open-source technologies developed at Airbnb, Amazon, and Facebook. We participate in the open-source ecosystem.

  • Prior involvement in at least one large-scale project built in Salesforce

At VillageMD, we see diversity and inclusion as a source of strength in transforming healthcare. We believe building trust and innovation are best achieved through diverse perspectives. To us, acceptance and respect are rooted in an understanding that people do not experience things in the same way, including our healthcare system. Individuals seeking employment at VillageMD are considered without regard to race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
