More Information

AthenaHealth is a rapidly-growing US-based company providing technology and services to keep America’s doctors working. We combine a large-scale medical billing operation with the industry’s leading software for managing a medical practice – software we built from scratch over the past 7 years. We’re creating a subsidiary in Chennai and are looking for a small, talented group to help build this organization.

We have significant data entry and call center operations in Chennai, but we have no plan to directly manage those operations. Instead, our subsidiary, AthenaNet India, will be an innovation laboratory, focused on creating the technology and processes to enable the best operations in their class. We will continually refocus on the next-generation breakthroughs as soon as our innovations are installed at the BPO.

The Technical Lead will lead the execution of large-scale development projects on our athenaNet technology platform.
