Your Role

As an Applied Data Scientist on the Health Care team, you will have the opportunity to contribute to the end-to-end collaboration with our clients and business partners in the healthcare industry. You will be working closely with the other members of the technical team to understand our partners’ problems and develop machine learning or optimization solutions to address them. You will also work closely with our software team to move the developed solutions into production.

What You'll Do

  • Work with our clients and partners to understand their business needs and requirements to define the project plan, deliverables, and acceptance criteria.
  • Research state-of-the-art methods for a given task, implement and improve upon these techniques to provide the best possible solution for our clients through collaboration with other team members.
  • Develop end-to-end machine learning and optimization solutions including data acquisition, preprocessing, design, training and debugging machine learning models.
  • Interpret the results of the developed machine learning or optimization solutions in a comprehensible manner backed by data and presenting them to our clients and partners.
  • Work with 1QBit’s internal teams as well as customers to build and serve machine learning and optimization powered APIs.

What You'll Bring

Members of our team bring a confluence of personality, skills, and intent that contributes to their individual development and our collective growth as an organization. The knowledge and mindset you will bring to our team include the following:

  • Minimum Master’s degree in computer science, engineering physics, electrical engineering, mathematics, or another technical discipline.
  • 2+ years of industry experience building and deploying machine learning or optimization solutions for business applications and/or in production environments
  • Familiarity with data science and machine learning algorithms and tools (e.g. deep learning, random forest, support vector machines)
  • Familiarity with machine learning frameworks, such as Tensorflow and scikit-learn
  • Highly proficient in Python programming
  • Familiarity with optimization algorithms and statistical methods
  • Experience with big data processing and database management
  • Experience with Git and related source control concepts
  • Ability to conduct research in an interdisciplinary environment, both independently and as part of a team
  • Strong presentation and critical thinking skills
  • Eagerness to learn about new trends, tools, and technologies, and to continually consider how these will influence our projects
  • Proactively seek out opportunities to help move projects forward and contribute to their improvement
  • Open to receiving and giving feedback to elevate team performance

Nice To Have

  • PhD degree in a technical field
  • Familiarity with optimization packages such as Gurobi, or LocalSolver
  • Familiarity with heuristic and metaheuristic optimization techniques, such as tabu search, local search, and simulated annealing
