Senior Data Scientist

Salary Competitive

This role is an opportunity to help bring preventive and personalized healthcare to cardiac patients. You’ll build tools that will make clinicians get their job done faster and help them navigate a world where healthcare workers are increasingly being overwhelmed by data.


You want to work on a product that matters in a driven team that aims to improve the quality of life for our users (heart patients).

As a person you are:

  • Comfortable with self-directed learning and motivated to explore new technologies.

  • Someone who likes teaching others.

  • Someone who loves building v1 - exploring a new concept from start to finish and building it from the ground up. You welcome user feedback and use that information to iterate on the tool.

On the tech side, we're interested in your experience with:

  • Python and the modules commonly used for Data Science work.

  • CI and CD pipelines. We use Jenkins.

  • Deploying and monitoring machine learning models.

  • Web technologies: HTML, CSS, JavaScript (ideally D3.js). We use this for prototyping.


We all share the passion for building the best next generation of healthcare solutions. We are a team of software engineers, physicists, anthropologists, sociologists, and more.

Our work is ambitious. Our software product enables remote care for heart patients with implanted pacemakers. We enhance the lives of patients while making clinicians more efficient at the same time.

As part of the data science team you can expect to:

  • Clean data, build statistical models, and find the correct set of metrics that align our works with the needs of our patient and clinician users.

  • Define and take the technical lead on medium to large projects that cut across the company.

  • Work on predicting severe cardiac arrhythmia, characterize electrocardiograms, and generally detect disease worsening in our patient users.


We make a real difference

It's hard for hospitals to strike the right balance between cutting costs and delivering better care for patients. With our software platform, we do just that using AI-driven clinical decision support along with more classic work-process optimisation and smart visualizations of medical data.

We’re passionate about our journey and each other

We’re here to make an impact and have the best time together while doing it. We firmly believe that we should all understand the purpose of what we do. So no one will just hand things off to another team and forget about it.

We’re solving hard problems

Doing health tech right is difficult for a number of reasons. Some are technology-related: stability, security, transparency, and reproducibility, which are a different beast than the typical throughput and scaling. Standards and protocols for health tech are still evolving and often misappropriated, and therefore require creative solutions. It's tough to make predictions, especially about the future. We're building tools to predict severe arrhythmias and find signs of disease worsening.

Other reasons are more practical: different hospitals and clinics simply have different workflows and this impacts the way we design software to support those individualities.

Finally, there are the legal and ethical considerations: how do we handle GDPR, security, auditing and logging, national and international laws, etc.
