Data Insights Engineer

| Greater NYC Area

Data Insights is an entrepreneurial group of engineers that join Flatiron product teams to facilitate the process of market fit discovery, rapid prototyping and iteration. We use engineering and data science tools to unlock the most value from our data. We talk with clients, work with oncology experts and code in Python, SQL, R or whatever it takes to advance our goal of dramatically accelerating cancer research and improving patient care. This mix of technical skills and client empathy allows us to accelerate our product development process and to take our products to the next level.

Data Insights is Flatiron’s forward deployed engineering team. We started out working on tools to enable healthcare providers to manage cancer centers and to treat patients, but we have since integrated into teams working in diverse areas of the company including partnering with Life Sciences companies and developing tools to help accelerate clinical research.

As a Data Insights Engineer you will:

  • Rapidly iterate on products early in the development of product-market fit when there is a need for product, customer and technology skills in a single self-driving person
  • Analyze and visualize oncology data for our clients in cancer clinics, academic institutions and life sciences companies
  • Work through complex data pipelines using SQL and other data processing tools
  • Develop knowledge of healthcare industry trends and data

About you:

  • You have at least 1 year industry experience (not including internships) in a relevant role (more senior roles are also available for candidates with more experience)
  • You are passionate about our mission to improve cancer care through data and technology
  • You have the technical skill to query databases, and have strong intuition for how to model and clean data
  • You are versatile and can easily pick up new programming languages
  • You care more about fixing our customers’ problems and advancing cancer treatment than you do about dealing with the coolest / newest data processing techniques
  • You are an effective communicator who can break down a complex data analysis and tell a compelling story to stakeholders ranging from clinical staff to engineers to sales
  • You understand how to identify major pain points in a user’s workflow, build prototypes to address the challenges, gather feedback from the user, and rapidly iterate
  • You are self-motivated and able to prioritize and address problems in a highly ambiguous environment

Good to have (but we can teach you):

  • Python, version control and product development processes
  • Healthcare industry knowledge/context (especially oncology specific knowledge)

An Insider's view of Flatiron Health

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The most exciting part of being in my company is solving a real problem at scale through serious collaboration. Oncologists, software engineers, statisticians, business folks, etc. all have to come to the table together, as equals, to figure this one out. And we are doing it.

Amy

Chief medical Officer

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.

Abhishek

Software Engineer

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 Engineering

What is your vision for the company?

At Flatiron, we believe that learning from the experience of every cancer patient is an imperative — it is the key to accelerating research and continuing to improve the quality of care. Our mission is to serve cancer patients and our customers by dramatically improving treatment and accelerating research.

Zach Weinberg

Co-Founder, President and COO

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.

Medical Writer
