Overview

We’re looking for aspiring software engineers from historically underrepresented communities and non-traditional backgrounds to participate in our paid, full-time, six-month apprentice program. Apprentices will develop their technical skills, gain industry experience, and grow their careers as software engineers, while helping 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 role, our team and why Flatiron Health is the right next step in your career.

What You’ll Do

In this role, you’ll work with a software engineering team to help oncologists spend more time with patients or empower scientists to conduct research faster. Reporting to a dedicated engineering manager, you’ll get exposure to hands-on software engineering and help us in our mission to build products that make a real impact. In addition, you’ll also:

  • Be part of a team with skillful professional software engineers
  • Deploy real production code
  • Learn agile methodologies and tools for organizing software development
  • Use testing to ensure code correctness and quality
  • Work with product managers, scientists, doctors, designers, and QA teams to make sure we’re building the best products

We’re dedicated to providing you the time to learn and grow as a software engineer, mentorship and networking with our world-class team, and firsthand experience building software that makes a difference.

Who You Are

You’re a self-starter looking to launch a career as a software engineer. Flatiron greatly values diversity and inclusion, and we strongly encourage anyone from a historically underrepresented minority group to apply. This includes, but is not limited to: Black, Latinx, and Indigenous People. Graduates of coding bootcamps, self-taught coders, caregivers, veterans returning to the workforce, and/or people making a career switch are all eligible.

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 are not currently employed as a Software Engineer
  • You have some proficiency in Javascript, C#, or Python
  • You have life experience that sets you up to succeed in a collaborative, cross-functional environment
  • You are ready to learn new technologies, build products and make a difference
