We’re on a mission to understand and structure the world’s medical data, starting by making sense of the terabytes of clinician notes contained within the electronic health records of the world’s largest health systems.
We’re seeking exceptional Backend Engineers to work on data products that drive the core of our business--a backend expert able to unify data, and build systems that scale from both an operational and an organizational perspective.
As a Backend Engineer you will:
Develop data infrastructure to ingest, sanitize and normalize a broad range of medical data, such as electronics health records, journals, established medical ontologies, crowd-sourced labelling and other human inputs
Build performant and expressive interfaces to the data
Build infrastructure to help us not only scale up data ingest, but large-scale cloud-based machine learning
We’re looking for teammates who bring:
Experience building data pipelines from disparate sources
Hands-on experience building and scaling up compute clusters
Excitement about learning how to build and support machine learning pipelines that scale not just computationally, but in ways that are flexible, iterative, and geared for collaboration
A solid understanding of databases and large-scale data processing frameworks like Hadoop or Spark. You’ve not only worked with a variety of technologies, but know how to pick the right tool for the job
A unique combination of creative and analytic skills capable of designing a system capable of pulling together, training, and testing dozens of data sources under a unified ontology
Bonus points if you have experience with:
Developing systems to do or support machine learning, including experience working with NLP toolkits like Stanford CoreNLP, OpenNLP, and/or Python’s NLTK
Expertise with wrangling healthcare data and/or HIPAA
Experience with managing large-scale data labelling and acquisition, through tools such as through Amazon Turk or DeepDive
We're building a deep learning system to structure and organize all the free text in patient medical records. Our first application for this system is automatically turning that text into health insurance billing codes. Each year, $3.5 billion is spent on using manual labor to solve this problem with only 83-85% accuracy achieved. Our financing was led by Google Ventures and 8VC and our engineering team comes from Google, Facebook, and Twitch.
We are driven and passionate, motivated by learning, personal growth and impact. We have a heavy emphasis on feedback and communication, running our OKRs on two weeks cycles and monthly one hour check-ins.
