Overview

We’re looking for a Senior Data Scientist to join our Data Insights Engineering team and help us accomplish our mission of improving lives by learning from the experience of every cancer patient. 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

Data Insights Engineering is a diverse and talented team with strong expertise in discovering and understanding customer needs, and rapidly prototyping and iterating on data products. As a Senior Data Scientist on this team, you will work with cross-functional leads to design solutions in a highly ambiguous, impactful, and interesting problem space with a high degree of autonomy. You will synthesize internal and external user feedback to help guide the team’s product roadmap and lead the technical development effort for data products, analytic tools, and algorithms. In addition, you’ll also:

  • Immerse yourself in business and technical context to help your team identify opportunities for unlocking new value from our unique data sets
  • Rapidly iterate on early stage products where a hybrid skill set of product intuition, customer empathy and technical expertise is essential
  • Be responsible for taking nascent product ideas and maturing them into production algorithms and products
  • Build and own complex data pipelines using SQL, Python and other data processing tools
  • Do this all while mentoring team members and guiding them to tackle bigger and more complex problems

Who You Are

You are an entrepreneurial, customer-focused data scientist, experienced in driving new data capabilities. You are excited by the prospect of rolling up your sleeves to tackle meaningful problems each and every day. You are a kind, passionate and collaborative problem-solver who seeks and gives candid feedback, and values the chance to make a real impact on people’s lives.

  • You have at least 4 years of relevant working experience in an analytical and technical capacity
  • You have led large, cross-functional initiatives and are excellent at influencing decision-making without authority
  • You have collaborated with other technical team members in a production development environment using formal version control and SQL, Python, and/or R
  • You have a passion for teaching those of various backgrounds and levels of experience and guiding them as they develop their careers

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