Description

Want to unlock insights from data to help doctors and nurses?
 
Apply to be on our data science team!
 
Have you ever found yourself or a loved one waiting hours and hours in a hospital Emergency Room to get care? Did you ever feel there weren't enough nurses to take care of all the patients in your area of the hospital? Or have you ever had a surgery scheduled for months in the future that needed to happen sooner? Unfortunately our healthcare system is full of these types of operational problems. Qventus is looking for data scientists who can help redefine how healthcare systems work.  Our work saves lives and helps hospitals cut tens of millions of dollars in operational costs, while improving the quality of care they’re able to deliver.
 
The role is a full-time position and will be based out of Mountain View. We all deeply care about improving healthcare for patients across the country while having fun working with each other. As such to be a good fit for the company we will look for:

Responsibilities:

    • Design, develop and implement cutting-edge technologies to model hospital operations and patient behavior to identify opportunities for better care management and cost savings.
    • Help the team adopt best in class processes and techniques for data manipulation, statistical analysis, and modeling.
    • Help define scalable processes and relationships between our Data Science team and the rest of the organization.

Examples of problems you may solve:

    • Predicting spikes of incoming patients that could overload a hospital and suggesting solutions.
    • Modeling patient flow through the hospital and better schedule nurses and doctors.
    • Identifying and notifying staff of patients who appear to be ‘slipping through the cracks’ of the care process.
    • Help identify patients who might be high risk for readmission in to the healthcare system.

You should have:

    • 5+ years of post graduate, professional experience as a data scientist, with a proven record of deploying your models in production.
    • Significant development experience with Python, solid SQL and database fundamentals, experience with cloud services platforms (e.g. AWS Sagemaker, Snowflake) is a big plus.
    • Experience with a variety of modeling approaches and model evaluation techniques.
    • Communication & interpersonal skills: empathy, transparency, and respect are core values of ours, and we maintain a great culture this way.
