Job Description

Have you been following the latest news about Obamacare?  Are you keen on using computer science to revolutionize the healthcare industry?   Inspired by the recent Affordable Care Act, Medicaid-Genius, a startup from Long Island, aims to modernize the archaic process of Medicaid applications.  We are a small, tight-knit company, whose developers have a passion for problem solving, and whose leaders have a track record of entrepreneurial success.  

  Medicaid-Genius’ web application, currently in its beta phase, parses scanned financial statements to determine whether a Medicaid applicant is hiding assets in order to qualify for health benefits.  Given a person’s financial documents, our web app has the power to instantly determine his net worth, income and other money streams.   

In order to analyze scanned financial documents, we use sophisticated document pre- and post-processing techniques and OCR options to search for data that is significant for Medicaid applications. 

We are considering candidates with a wide range of experience and qualifications.    We seek self-motivated workers, who will collaborate with our young, spirited team of developers.  Candidates should be inquisitive and vocal in raising questions and giving feedback, and should feel comfortable improvising when it comes to solving loosely-defined problems

Required Qualifications

  • Extensive experience writing backends in Python
  • Experience with the MVC design pattern.
  • Proficiency with the *nix command line.
  • Familiarity with a modern DVCS, preferably Git
  • Experience writing  RESTful backend services.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Image processing, particularly Optical Character Recognition
  • Understanding of Linear Algebra or Discrete Math
  • Experience in C++
  • Experience in OpenCL
  • Familiarity with SQL
  • Familiarity with HIPAA or HITECH compliance
