We're looking for a Staff 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

In this role, you'll work with the our Client Solutions team to perform data analyses that surface operational issues and improve them.  You'll become an expert on the delivery processes for our key product offerings and the data that is associated with them.  You'll use that context to generate hypotheses on how to improve our processes, and perform data analyses and experiments to validate them.  You'll work closely with business leaders to implement process improvements based on the results of your work.  In addition, this role will include:

  • Transforming data and metadata into actionable insights using robust statistical methods and compelling data visualizations in formats accessible to internal stakeholders
  • Developing, documenting, and maintaining key performance metrics for our product teams
  • Surfacing analytic insights to product teams through the development and support of data tools and dashboards
  • Working with cross-functional stakeholders to design and execute statistical experiments aimed at improving existing processes
  • Developing prototypes of software and platform enhancements that improve operational efficiency
  • Generating ideas for analyses to shape future projects, contributing to a pipeline of opportunities that will help Flatiron achieve its ambitious goals

The Staff Data Scientist will work collaboratively with business leaders, Product Managers, Clinical Data Analysts, Data Scientists, Software Engineers, and other members of the Flatiron's Evidence Organization.

Who You Are

You're a Staff Data Scientist with at least 5+ years of work experience analyzing data and creating visualizations in business intelligence software (e.g., Superset, Tableau, Lookr, etc). You have statistical expertise and a strong ability to frame business problems in an analytic manner.  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 a BS or MS from a technical field of study (e.g. data science, engineering, computer science, mathematics, applied statistics, health economics, etc.) or you’ve done programming/scripting on your own
  • You have experience coding in Python
  • You have experience working with query languages such as SQL
  • You are a self-starter who can and independently prioritize and address problems in a highly ambiguous environment
  • You are a clear and confident communicator who can break down complex data analyses to tell a compelling story
  • You have experience designing experiments or creating predictive models

If this sounds like you, you'll fit right in at Flatiron. 

Extra Credit:

  • You have prior Oncology or Clinical Data experience
  • You have prior management experience or are interested in developing your career along a management path.  (This role will not involve management initially, but will likely have the opportunity to do so in the future.)
  • You have prior experience with business leadership and/or operations research

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.
