Knowledge is our product, and data is our platform. We need engineers who look at a data set and want to unlock the answers it holds inside. Engineers who look at a data set and think about how to make sure it is correct. Engineers who look at a data set and want to make infrastructure to help build it better, faster, and stronger.

As a Data Engineer, you will work closely with oncologists and statisticians to build software that will help our customers discover novel insights into their data. You will design our data infrastructure, and use it to develop extensible, robust data and analytics pipelines, tools, visualizations, and services for accessible and flexible data analysis.

  • You hold a BS, MS, or Ph.D. in computer science or related field
  • You have 2+ years work experience
  • You have experience with languages like Python, C++, Java, or C#
  • You are passionate about performance, reliability, and scalability of systems
  • You are inspired by our mission to improve cancer research through technology
  • You seek simple approaches to complex problems
  • You like science and/ or medicine just because it’s cool

Bonus points if you have any of the following:

  • Have a good understanding of relational databases like PostgreSQL, MySQL or MSSQL
  • Have real passion for data and a strong understanding of statistics
  • Have developed distributed data processing systems against large, heterogeneous data sets
  • Have taken a leading role in delivering complex software systems all the way to production
  • You almost decided to go to med school

An Insider's view of Flatiron Health

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

An engineer and oncologist work together over several weeks to build an algorithm from a naive prototype to a highly specialized and flexible rule set that can accurately represent the lines of therapy for 95% of patients within a specific disease subset.

How does the company support your career growth?

As engineering manager, I am invested in the professional development of the people I work with. I train team members by pulling them out of their comfort zones to the uncomfortable territory. At Flatiron, it is one of our values - greatness and comfort rarely co-exist.

Kevin

Software Engineer

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Instead of studying the cells, I now have the opportunity to write about the patients. I can tell their stories through the research lens and enable them to advance clinical cancer research through their experiences. I certainly never lose sight of the human behind the cell anymore.
