Rethinking prenatal and postpartum care since 2014

The Babyscripts Team is seeking an experienced Senior Cloud Engineer who has a proven track record of leading a team, setting policies, standards, prototypes in automating and improving workflows in an AWS serverless environment. The ideal candidate already has a proven track record of success with AWS and a deep willingness to learn new technical stacks and be able to teach and share with fellow engineers. This role is a manager role. The ideal candidate thrives in the startup environment, where back-and-forth, constant, cyclical feedback and interaction is the norm. Role responsibilities include researching, testing, prototyping to resolve development issues, improving the functionality of existing workflows and operations, and ensuring that the design, application, and maintenance of software meets and exceeds quality standards.

This role must be able to successfully work in a multi-functional team, able to communicate well with engineers and non-engineers alike and mentor, guide, and train other engineers. Part of the job will be to take an idea, grow it, design it, validate it, develop it, test it, deploy it, and see it in the hands of real users. You should be able to deep dive into hard and complex technical issues that impact ten of thousands of users and obsess over how systems need to be designed to allow for scale, security and ease of use.

About Babyscripts

Babyscripts exists to solve the problems generated from the critical shortage of obstetrical providers in the U.S. Babyscripts was founded six years ago to rethink the delivery of pregnancy care through the power of technology and remote patient monitoring. Babyscripts offers comprehensive virtual maternity care that, through managing various levels of risk, addresses an outdated model for pregnancy care that has not moved the needle in decreasing maternal morbidity and mortality; an inability to address social determinants of health; and now the critical need to transition care outside of the clinic due to Covid-19. The company’s solution for virtual maternity care manages the various risk-levels of your maternal health population to address some of the largest drivers of costs and complications in perinatal care.

Babyscripts’ three-tiered approach to virtual maternity care allows providers to deliver risk-specific care to pregnant mothers at any time, in any place. The first tier consists of a digital education layer delivered via a mobile app, with daily gestational-age and practice-specific, customizable content extending through one year postpartum to engage and empower pregnant mothers through trusted resources. The second tier enables remote management of pregnant patients through the addition of remote monitoring. Dependent on risk, patients are provided with internet-enabled medical devices (like a bluetooth-enabled blood pressure cuff) to monitor for elevated risk, alerting the provider through a unique trigger alert system to enable risk management and intervention. This smart end-to-end management of patients enables the provider to transition care outside of the clinic and address problems of access, allowing them to automate a majority of their patient care while more effectively allocating time and resources to higher risk patients. The third tier brings the insurer into the equation in a unique collaboration between care team and payer, solving some of the structural issues of care coordination and access to care, improving outcomes while reducing cost.
