Security Engineering Intern (Summer 2018)

| New York

The security team at Flatiron Health is a part of an amazing organization full of really smart people and work every day to protect against threats to a business trying to help cure cancer. We create attack driven defenses, not compliance. We are always looking for new ideas and trying to make sure the best ideas rise to the top of the heap. We focus on results and not just debate, in fact we are often architects, designers and engineers, not just advisors. We build credibility through action and results.

Our culture

We work in a fast-paced, high-information-volume environment with complex domain challenges, which means context is key and there's always more to learn and soak up. We want to know oncology data cold — better than anyone else in the industry — and we believe doing that requires building a culture where we all like coming to work each day. In our culture, decisions are transparent and data-driven, and people are empowered to make waves.

Are you interested in changing the way the oncology world thinks about data?

As a Flatiron Security Engineering Intern you will:

  • Review software, discover vulnerabilities, and develop fixes for them.
  • Design and develop automatic tests for discovering vulnerabilities in in our products.
  • Work alongside a world-class team, defending Flatiron against real attackers.
  • Learn more about cancer and the day-to-day intricacies of oncology than you can possibly imagine

About you:

  • You are attending university, pursuing a BS or MS related to computer science, and will be graduating between December 2018 and June 2019.
  • You enjoy discovering and analyzing vulnerabilities in software.
  • You are comfortable writing code.
  • You want to develop practical application security skills to discover, analyze, and prevent security vulnerabilities.
  • You are comfortable in a Unix/Linux environment
  • You are enthusiastic about working on a multi-disciplinary team
  • You are passionate about our mission to improve healthcare through technology

Bonus points if you…

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.
