We are looking for a senior leader with deep methodological expertise to help us accomplish our mission to improve lives by learning from the experience of every cancer patient. Here is what you need to know about the role, our team and why Flatiron Health could be the right next step in your career. 

What You'll Do

In this role, you will work as a senior member of  the Quantitative Sciences team to answer some of the most important questions in cancer using Flatiron’s unique, large real-world dataset. In addition, you will also:

  • Serve as a resident quantitative methodology expert by developing creative analytical solutions and applying appropriate statistical methodology to answer novel research questions
  • Define and clarify analytic requirements, develop analysis plans and novel methods, and ensure data quality standards
  • Lead technical initiatives that further our understanding of real world data and methods to generate real world evidence
  • Mentor junior staff and collaborate on deliverables
  • Develop and manage relationships with external partners (including life science companies, regulatory agencies, academic institutions and health technology assessment bodies) to advance the integration of our analytic products through demonstrated value
  • Publish scientific work in peer-reviewed journals
  • Have a leadership presence at scientific conferences and meetings by making presentations, organizing sessions, and leading discussions that advance the field of Real-World Evidence (RWE) research

You will collaborate with a team of oncologists, product managers, and software engineers to help develop, commercialize, and deliver analytics products. Working in a rapidly expanding business, you will be consistently challenged to partner with Flatiron colleagues and lead the analytical strategy to answer important questions in cancer research.

Who You Are

You are an analytical thinker with 5+ years of work experience in an academic or industry setting. You are excited by the prospect of rolling up your sleeves to tackle meaningful problems each and every day. You are a kind, passionate and collaborative problem-solver who seeks and gives candid feedback, and values the chance to make an important impact. 

  • You hold a PhD (or equivalent) in a quantitative discipline such as biostatistics, epidemiology, applied statistics, health economics, or a related discipline
  • You have expertise in outcomes research, with a strong publication record
  • You have experience collaborating with researchers in the life science industry, academia, or government agencies
  • You are a natural teacher; you have a passion for mentoring and teaching those of various backgrounds and levels of experience
  • You are flexible and adapt well to complex challenges
  • You have the ability to juggle multiple external interactions and deadlines simultaneously and the adaptability to collaborate with individuals at all levels and functions
  • You have excellent written and oral communication skills and a deep attention to detail
  • You are self-motivated, self-directed and proactive
  • You are willing to travel (approximately 10-20%)

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

Extra Credit 

  • You have oncology experience
  • You have consulting experience
  • You have experience working with longitudinal EMR data
  • You have experience working with life sciences companies or health-related government agencies (e.g., CDC, NIH, or FDA)

Why You Should Join Our Team

You'll also find a culture of continuous learning, broad and inclusive employee support offerings, and a commitment to supporting our team members in all aspects of their lives—at home, at work and everywhere in between. We offer: 

  • Flatiron University training curriculum which includes presentation skills, meeting mastery, coding languages and more

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.

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 Engineer

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.
