A full-time position in San Francisco

We’re looking for an analytical, scrappy, product-minded data scientist to leverage our extensive data set to develop analysis and machine learning models to power Amino’s products.

Job description

You will be working with team of data scientists to develop analysis and algorithms  that power all of Aminos products. Currently, we are developing more features on our Cost Estimation and Find-a-Doctor products.

There are inherent challenges when working on a consumer healthcare technology platform. As a team, we have to be exceedingly diligent about the correctness of our recommendations.

As a senior member of the data science team, you play a major part in not only product development but also find new tooling and processes to make the data science team run more efficiently. We expect that you will encourage intellectual curiosity and creativity but also help the team focus and ship product.

We expect to see:

  • Strong analytical and problem solving skills  
  • Deep understanding of machine learning techniques such as classification, recommendation systems and regression
  • Solid programming experience with Scala or Python
  • Experience using distributed processing engines like Map/Reduce and Spark
  • Proven ability to develop data products from inception to business impact while working in a cross functional team
  • Prior experience or a strong interest in working with healthcare data
  • PhD or Master’s Degree in applied statistics, computer science, data mining, or a related quantitative discipline

About us

Our goal is to make the healthcare experience better for patients and doctors—to increase transparency, lower costs, and improve outcomes. It's a big challenge, and we hire people who aren’t afraid to take on audacious projects.

We’re proud of fostering a culture where clarity of thought and openness are paramount. Our downtown San Francisco office is designed for happiness, comfort, productivity and collaboration, with a great balance of open spaces and quiet rooms to accommodate your working style. We offer competitive compensation and benefits, and we’re still small enough to get in on the ground floor.

We believe in collaboration, respect, and curiosity. Everyone’s input is valued, be it about code, data models, business models, or product ideas.
