We're looking for 2021 Summer Software Engineering Interns who will 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 internship role, our engineering team and why Flatiron Health is the right next step in building your career. 

What You'll Do

  • Spend 10 weeks embedded in a fast-paced scrum team
  • Design, plan, and build a project under the guidance of an experienced engineering mentor
  • Whiteboard ideas, write code, work with stakeholders, and present your work 
  • Learn more about cancer and the day-to-day intricacies of oncology than you can possibly imagine

We have openings for engineering interns across all our different product lines and technology stacks. We welcome engineering students with a genuine passion about software engineering, whether that be in the interest in working with data or building new product features, focusing on the backend or exploring more fullstack roles - We have something for you! 

Who You Are

You are graduating between December 2021 and June 2022 with a BS or MS in computer science or a related field. 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 write clean, well-structured code
  • You have experience working in a fast-paced company
  • You are enthusiastic about working on a multi-disciplinary team
  • You are passionate about our mission to improve healthcare through technology

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

Extra Credit 
  • Contribute to an open source project
  • Fluent in Python
  • Have used Pandas, R, or another data analytics tool on a messy, real-world data set
  • Have developed apps using modern frontend frameworks like AngularJS / Ember.js
  • Have experience with SQL or another query language
  • Have deep empathy for data and a strong understanding of statistics
  • Understand experimental design, and can build for collection, measurement and interpretation of results
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.

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: 

  • Onboarding curriculum which includes presentation skills, meeting mastery,  coding languages and more
  • Career coaching opportunities
  • Hackathons for all employees (not just our engineers!)
  • Housing support to help cover the cost of living in NY 
  • Lunch with the Founders, social events and Team outings

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.
