We're looking for a Senior Data Scientist to help us accomplish our mission to improve lives by learning from the experience of every cancer patient. Here's what you need to know about the role, our team and why Flatiron Health is the right next step in your career.
What You'll Do
At Flatiron, we're pioneering the use of machine learning (ML) and natural language processing (NLP) to extract clinically relevant information from unstructured medical notes for use in oncology research. The Prism team is helping to build these next generation research data products, developing ML models to capture a complete picture of the patient journey. While most of the team are Data Scientists, Prism has team members spanning 5 different fields, from data science to product management to research oncology.
You will work with the Prism team to help guide our product roadmap and help lead the technical development effort of our models. Engaging with a cross-functional group of stakeholders both within Prism and across the company, you will lead model development projects from scoping through to productionization and delivery.
In addition, you'll also:

  • Interface with internal scientific stakeholders and customers to understand what data they need to conduct high quality research.
  • Apply ML and NLP techniques to turn raw clinical data into high quality research variables.
  • Work with quantitative scientists and oncologists to validate that your models can be used to generate sound scientific insights.
  • Collaborate with other Data Scientists on our team and across the company to level-up our ML capabilities by developing new ML architectures.
  • Work cross-functionally with software engineers to productionize these new variables.

Who You Are
You're a product-focused data scientist, with experience in leveraging ML and NLP to solve real-world problems. You're excited by the prospect of rolling up your sleeves to tackle meaningful problems each and every day. You're a kind, passionate and collaborative problem-solver who seeks and gives candid feedback, and values the chance to make an important impact.

  • You have 4+ years of relevant working experience in a technical capacity, with a focus on ML and NLP.
  • You have a strong background in applying ML to solve real-world problems.
  • You have collaborated with other technical team members in a production development environment using formal version control, Python, and SQL.
  • You have led large, cross-functional initiatives and excel at influencing decision-making without authority.

Extra Credit

  • You have experience with Deep Learning and LLMs.
  • You have ML experience in a healthcare setting.
  • You have experience with the risks of bias in machine learning, health equity research/analysis or have worked with underrepresented groups in a clinical research setting.
