Alto is a telehealth pharmacy focused on helping people live healthier by making the prescription experience easier, more supportive, and more affordable. We’re transforming a $500 billion industry by reinventing what a pharmacy can do, for both patients and providers—from hand-delivering medications for free to offering on-call help by text or chat. Over one million deliveries, over a thousand five-star Yelp reviews, and an NPS score of +86 later, we’re proud to say we’ve built a pharmacy that people truly love.

About the team:

We are looking for a data engineer to be a key member of our quickly growing team. Our analytics team is responsible for using detailed analyses to guide product strategy and for enabling teams across Alto to answer key business questions. As one of the first data engineers at Alto, you will design and build the systems we need to support high-quality, data-driven decisions.

We’ve taken the first step in building out our analytics platform by instrumenting several of our core workflows, and we’re looking for someone to help us take the next step in defining the future systems that will be needed to support and scale analytics.

Example projects of an Alto data engineer include:

  • Instrumenting one of our operational processes like prescription refill requests so that we can better understand if patients needing refills are successfully getting those medications or if there are problems in the process we can tackle to make sure they do.
  • Building out a data integration for our phone system so we can better understand the business metrics for our outbound and inbound patient calls.
  • Deciding what data stores we need to store various types of analytics, and how we will enable teams across Alto to work with that data.
Accelerate your career as you:
  • Build the instrumentation, data integrations, and tools that will allow our analytics team to answer key business questions accurately and efficiently.
  • Design and implement the infrastructure and data models that will allow our analytics systems to scale
  • Collaborate with engineers and analysts to develop the technical strategy for our analytics and reporting systems
  • Work cross-functionally with product, operations, and growth teams to support data analysis across all business functions
  • Contribute to defining our team and company data culture through peer collaboration, coaching, and input into the team processes we adopt as we grow the analytics team together

  • Care deeply about helping teammates across the organization have the ability to answer key business questions

An Insider's view of Alto Pharmacy

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Work/life balance is definitely encouraged at Alto! I never have to think about work on my weekends, and my boss has even reminded me that I haven't taken a vacation day in a while and to be sure to use some or take a long weekend.

Scott Carmichael

Software Engineer, Infrastructure

What projects are you most excited about?

I am excited about empowering our data scientists to perform both ad-hoc and repeatable analysis using our Snowflake data warehouse (loaded via dbt + Airflow). Our business users are leveraging the same reliable data sources to gain insights via Looker. Most rewarding: we are actively using data in our mission to fulfill medicine’s true purpose.

Doug

Software Engineer, Data Engineering

How does the company support your career growth?

Alto enables me to work on projects I find interesting and technically engaging. I’ve been able to work on a variety of projects ranging from integrating our pharmacy management software with external EHR systems to setting up a modern data infrastructure from scratch.

Le Qi

Software Engineer, Data Engineering

What is your vision for the company?

It’s really easy to assume that Alto Pharmacy just delivers medications, but it goes beyond this when you have patients who are bed bound or who don’t know how to navigate the medical field by themselves. We support you in navigating this tricky realm, we ensure that adherence is more feasible, and the healthcare experience is transparent.
