Flatiron Health has built a unified data set that is unparalleled in its depth and accuracy and gives our partners the capability to ask questions about data that weren't answerable until now. Our Quantitative Sciences team answers these questions.

As the team rapidly scales, we are looking for a Quantitative Sciences Manager/Director who is excited to lead a team of quantitative scientists and quantitative data analysts making a big impact in a critical space.

You will play a critical leadership role at Flatiron, as our ability to answer challenging and impactful questions about our data increasingly drives the success of our team. Your team will work alongside software engineers, oncologists, and product managers, to derive ever more powerful insights to answer some of the most critical questions in cancer research. You will help advance this work while mentoring and guiding your reports and helping to develop their career paths.

Responsibilities:

  • Lead quantitative scientists, transforming real-world clinical data into actionable insights using robust statistical methods and compelling data visualizations
  • Act as player-coach and champion data analysis best practices
  • Develop and mentor Quantitative Sciences talent
  • Contribute to strategic and tactical product planning
  • Work with a cross-functional team to define and clarify analytic requirements, develop analysis plans, ensure data quality standards, and create publication-ready methods and results; and to identify areas for automation and process efficiencies
  • Generate ideas for analyses to shape future projects, contributing to a pipeline of opportunities that will help Flatiron achieve its ambitious growth goals

Requirements:

  • You hold a Master’s degree or PhD in a quantitative discipline
  • You have at least 5-7 years of relevant work experience analyzing clinical data, including experience leading or managing a small team
  • You recognize that the success of a data analysis team comes from its analysts and scientists, and you are enthusiastic about coaching, mentorship, and career development
  • You love working with data and have experience exploring data with a critical and thoughtful eye
  • You have experience working in a statistical programming language, and stay current enough to review code and guide the technical development of team members
  • You are an effective communicator, both oral and written
  • You are self-motivated and flexible, thrive in highly uncertain situations, and enjoy coming up with elegant and innovative solutions to challenging problems
  • You are passionate about our mission to improve healthcare through technology
  • You are a highly-effective collaborator and are motivated by the opportunity to work with oncologists, software engineers, product managers, and other members of the Flatiron team

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.

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.
