Back-End Python Developer - Machine Learning HealthTech Startup!

*This Start-up company is fully funded and made up of Machine Learning and Data Scientists, as well as Ivy League Business Graduates. 100% benefits coverage!

Though MongoDB is what they use at the moment, they are willing to switch to another Database. It is your job to take the advanced, complex, raw Machine Learning Data and make sense of it with Python. NO NEED FOR FRONT-END EXPERIENCE!*


Role includes large amounts of stock, equity, options, etc... ANY LEVEL - from recent Master's grads to Sr. Software Engineers, will look at financial people sick of finance but have the quant skills.
***NOTES from hiring manager*** "If I were to rewrite this now, I would probably place less emphasis on the need for machine learning capability and increase the importance of back-end database coding ability."

In a nutshell: A Data Hacker who can code for funded health tech start-up (no prior healthcare experience necessary)

They use Python on MongoDB, but, they are not married to MongoDB so it isn't a must have. He wants a developer that "can dig into large amounts of data and make sense of it". There is no front-end, this company just provides the data to healthcare companies and insurance companies.


Title: Depends upon level of experience, but this is a flat organization...


-- Execute lots of exploratory data analysis on complicated medical claims data. Develop new variables that will feed into Machine Learning code.
-- Continue development of automated data manipulation part of our back-end. The code you are responsible for processes incoming client data, transforms and creates new variables, feeds data to our predictive algorithms, and returns data to our clients.
-- Quickly and efficiently code new functionality into their proprietary Machine Learning Engine
-- Opportunity to lead product development efforts once capability is demonstrated.
-- Expert exploratory data analysis skills with the database and analysis tools of your choice (Python is a must, any database).
-- Ability to develop the code to automate variable creation and analysis steps. They currently use Python and Mongo DB, but are open to other options.
-- Stats experience is a big plus.
-- Machine learning experience is a plus but not required. (mainly use R)
-- Eagerness to work in a start-up environment and a strong work-ethic.
-- Strong communication skills with technical and semi-technical staff
-- Extremely strong problem solving skills
-- Strong math skills
-- Experience with health care claims data is a plus but not necessary (they will teach you)

Contact me if you'd like to see what they are all about (very interesting work)
