  • Discover trends and new business opportunities from physician’s medical claims and referral networks.
  • Provide technical leadership to other data scientists and data engineers working on our growth and colleaguing product teams.

What we’re looking for:

  • 4+ years of industry experience and M.S./Ph.D. in Computer Science, Engineering, Statistics, or other relevant technical field.
  • 4+ years experience with various machine learning methods (classification, clustering, natural language processing, ensemble methods) and parameters that affect their performance.
  • Experience applying graph theory, analytics, and processing to industry problems.
  • Solid engineering skills to build scalable solutions and help automate data processing challenges.
