  • Bring your entrepreneurial curiosity and learning spirit into a career of purpose, personal growth, and leadership.
  • We are seeking those who have a passion for using data, analytics, and insights to drive decision-making that will allow us to tackle some of the world’s greatest health threats.

This role involves working with our partners in different Therapeutic areas (e.g. Oncology, Vaccines, Chronic Care, etc) and Domain areas (Market Access, pricing, etc. ) across the organization to help create scalable and production-grade analytics solutions, ranging from data visualization and reporting, to advanced statistical and AI/ML models.

Model development and deployment will occur in the cloud (AWS), and we’ll look for the appropriate experience. You don’t have to be an expert in any of the potential areas of analytics, but need to be able to demonstrate aptitude, willingness to execute, and an ability to problem solve independently.

  • You understand the foundations of statistics and machine learning and can work in high performance computing/cloud environments, with experience in some aspects across statistical learning, machine learning, model management, data engineering, data visualization, and data interpretation
  • You are self-motivated, and have demonstrated abilities to think independently as a data scientist
  • You structure your data science approach according to the necessary task, while appropriately applying the correct level of model complexity to the problem at hand
  • You have experience with real world data (e.g., claims, electronic health records)
  • Experience within any of the therapeutic areas like oncology is a plus (e.g., NCCN guidelines, SEER data, understand lines of therapy rules, have knowledge about staging and existing therapeutic spaces)
  • Strong Python skills (some specifics of Sagemaker is a plus), and SQL skills are a must. Experience having deployed models to production. Ability to spin up quick visualization prototypes in PowerBI, Qliksense, or other similar tools is preferred. Experience with R-Shiny, Bokeh, Django, or JavaScript is a plus.
  • You have an agile mindset of continuous learning and will focus on integrating enterprise value into team culture

What should you have:

  • Required: Bachelors degree with at least 1-3 years industry experience
  • Preferred: Advanced degree (MS, PhD) in a quantitative science or health field (e.g., computational biology, epidemiology, biostatistics, statistics, mathematics, physics, economics)
