VP, Quantitative Sciences at Flatiron Health

Our mission is to serve cancer patients and our partners by dramatically improving treatment and accelerating research. Our team is building a disruptive, oncology-specific software platform that connects cancer centers across the world on a common technology infrastructure to address key healthcare challenges. We’ve built a unified data-set that is unparalleled in its depth and accuracy and gives our team and our partners the capability to ask questions about data that weren't answerable until now. Our Quantitative Sciences team answers these questions.

We are looking for someone excited to make an immediate impact in a critical space. This position requires leadership, outstanding problem-solving, analytical and communication skills; experience multitasking and prioritizing in a fast-paced environment. You will collaborate with a cross-functional team of account directors, oncologists, product managers, and software engineers to help develop, commercialize, and deliver our analytics products.

  • Collaborate with our cross-functional teams to identify additional opportunities that align with Flatiron’s business needs and generate ideas for analyses to shape future projects
  • Develop and manage relationships with the external research community. Serve as the scientific point person at client meetings, scientific meetings, and industry events with anticipated travel 20-40%

  • You are a brilliant communicator, both oral and written
  • You are a natural teacher. You have a passion for mentoring and teaching those of various backgrounds and levels of experience
  • You have the ability to juggle multiple client interactions and deadlines simultaneously and the versatility to collaborate with clients at all levels and functions
  • You have a strong publication record and have been published in top-tier journals

Bonus points:
