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 will lead the Research Data Platforms Infrastructure (Mito) team at Flatiron. This team creates stable and resilient infrastructure, creates engineering efficiency and focuses on developer experience by investing in data-tooling, and partners with our Research product line engineering counterparts to create efficient processes to support data delivery. In addition, you'll also:

  • Contribute hands-on to our infrastructure
  • Champion engineering standards
  • Develop and mentor engineering talent
  • Lead technical planning
  • Partner with other tech leads and be comfortable diving into the details to help drive the strategic and tactical roadmap

Who You Are

You are a leader who is enthusiastic about mentorship, coaching, and designing elegant solutions to complex problems. You're a dedicated people manager who recognizes that the success of an engineering team comes from its engineers. You have a track record of leading high performing teams that successfully deliver scalable products in an agile technology company or a startup. You are also very motivated in building a positive developer experience and have experience empathizing with your internal engineering counterparts. 

  • You have strong hands-on technical skills and can contribute to coding and architecture
  • You have a minimum of two years experience managing engineers
  • You recognize the value of measuring performance, reliability, and scalability of systems
  • You regularly anticipate technical issues and make architectural and design decisions to avoid them
  • You have led internal infrastructure projects involving complex stakeholders
  • You have demonstrated success navigating and bringing clarity to interfaces in complex technical ecosystems

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

Why You Should Join Our Team

A career at Flatiron is a chance to work with everyone involved in the future of cancer care and research—all under one roof. Researchers, data scientists, designers, clinicians, technologists and many more all work together to improve cancer care and accelerate research.

At Flatiron, we strive to build and maintain an environment where employees from all backgrounds are valued, respected and have the opportunity to succeed. 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
  • Career coaching opportunities
  • Hackathons for all employees (not just our engineers!)
  • Professional development benefit for attending conferences, industry events and external courses
  • Work/life autonomy via flexible work hours and flexible paid time off
  • Generous parental leave (16 weeks for either parent)
  • Back-up child care
  • Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) that encourage our employees to share their unique experiences and perspectives
  • Flatiron-sponsored fitness classes

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.
