Requirements: 

  • Currently enrolled in a Masters or PhD program in a quantitative discipline, such as, but not limited to, biostatistics, epidemiology, applied statistics, or health economics, with expected graduation between December 2018 and June 2019
  • You love working with data and have experience exploring data with a critical and thoughtful eye
  • You are proficient in R or a similar programming language (e.g. Python, MATLAB, or SAS) and have experience working with complex datasets.
  • You are a solid communicator, both oral and written
  • You are self-motivated, thrive in highly uncertain situations, and enjoy coming up with elegant and innovative solutions to challenging problems
  • You are a “do-er”-- you know how to balance attention to detail with quick execution against tight timelines
  • You are flexible and adapt well to complex challenges
  • You are passionate about our mission to improve healthcare through technology

Insider's spotlight

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

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

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.
