Company Description

Dear Data Engineer, welcome to our mission;

Who are we?

We are Docplanner Tech, a group of people working in Engineering, BI, & Product teams across the globe, driven by the Docplanner Groups’ mission to make the healthcare experience more human for our patients, doctors, and clinics; and we do it well. We are a leader in 13 countries (and growing!), creating a SaaS tool for over 130k active doctors, who are directly connected to our marketplace which is trusted by over 80m patients, monthly.

We keep it simple and focus on what matters most. Patients easily book a visit and experience healthcare as it should be: humane. And doctors grow their office and dedicate time to help their patients, all whilst we cover the administration, so they don’t have to!

Why Docplanner Tech? Because nothing feels better than working on the good side of tech. You go to bed knowing that you make the world a better place and that your talent is aligned with what you believe in. What’s more? We do this with fierce passion, absorbing inspiration and radiating ideas. Defining goals, and as entrepreneurs, having the autonomy and space to experiment, we are encouraged to not be afraid to fail.

We love what we do, together. This is no jokeDocplanner Tech really is this special! If you don’t believe us, check out our Glassdoor

Because we believe that you, as Data Engineer will be a part of the Data Platform Team where decision-making support begins. We share the experiences of data engineers, sql developers and a project manager to bring software development standards to the analytics world. We are here because we know for a fact that data is crucial to make the healthcare experience more humane.

The Data Platform Team is more than a central hub for analytical data across the company: we are responsible for ensuring that every team has the data and tools they need. We also serve analytics teams across the whole company, and we collaborate to bring the best insights to life together.
