In recognition of International Women’s History Month, we would like to celebrate the incredible women of Lumiata who have helped transform the company as we continue to grow in the healthcare analytics space. According to Debbie Maddden, author of Hire Women: An Agile Framework for Hiring and Retaining Women in Technology (Sense and Respond Press, 2018), “Despite the fact that women outnumber men both in the US population and on college campuses, they hold only 10 to 20% of tech jobs at Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and Twitter, 25% of tech jobs overall, only 6% of S&P 500 CEO slots, and secure only 2% of Venture Capital funding. A full 43% of the 150 highest-earning public companies in Silicon Valley have no female executive officers at all.”
Here at Lumiata, we believe in creating a diverse environment where people are recognized for their passion, work ethic, and talents above all else. In 2018, 33% of our new hires were women. These included hires in leadership positions involved with marketing and product management, as well as tech positions in both data science and data engineering.
Hear from some of these amazing women on why they joined Lumiata and what excites them about working in the tech industry:
“I joined Lumiata on December, 2018 as an engineer. I feel very privileged to work at Lumiata, where the team is diverse, supportive and creative. I'm excited that I am able to make an impact on solving meaningful and challenging healthcare problems.”
Jingliang Li, Software Engineer
“I am passionate about leveraging data to help build a smarter healthcare system. Lumiata gives me the opportunity to work with healthcare data to identify patients at risk and provide effective care management. I believe in Lumiata’s mission as data science has the capability to revolutionize healthcare.”
Anusha Mohan, Data Scientist
“I relocated to work at Lumiata not only because of my passion for data and healthcare but also because I knew the leadership was dedicated to gender diversity in technology. I’m excited to see how we can continue to move the needle on creating more gender balance on our team.”
Julayne Lee, Director, Business Operations and Compliance
Lumiata continues to seek ways to improve gender balance and diversity across all functions. If you’d like to join us as we use machine learning to make healthcare smarter, please check out our current open positions on the Careers page of our site (lumiata.com/careers).
