Description

The data team is responsible for building quantitative narratives and data products that empower healthy behavior change for our users and smarter decisions for our stakeholders. We are deeply motivated to learn what works (and what doesn’t) for health behavior change at scale, especially since Omada is paid when we improve clinical outcomes for our users.

As a Data Scientist, you will have significant say in what you do and how you do it, and you’ll be backed by a diverse team of analysts, scientists, and engineers from disciplines including epidemiology, economics, statistics, and computer science. Your work will drive business impact, alongside your own intellectual growth, and will ultimately inspire and enable participants in the Omada program to live free of chronic disease.

Your impact:

  • Define and ship data products to solve unmet user and business needs
  • Establish scalable processes and architecture for large scale data analyses, model development, model validation and model deployment in collaboration with data engineers, software engineers, and other data scientists
  • Curate and design data repositories in support of advanced analytics to quantify the key drivers of health outcomes across our business lines
  • Research methods and technologies in AI / ML and conduct experiments to expand our understanding of what works (and what doesn’t) for health behavior change

You will be successful in this job if you have:

  • Masters or Bachelors degree in a quantitative field or equivalent practical experience
  • 2-5 years of applicable industry experience in building production-grade data products
  • Expertise in producing high-quality software using the full software development life cycle with at least one relevant programming language (Python, Ruby, etc.). 
  • Confidence with statistical computation, data visualization, and application of machine learning algorithms in at least one relevant language (Python, R, Spark)
  • Confidence in working with both relational (SQL) databases and non-relational (NoSQL) data structures.
  • Confidence in ability to translate complex scientific requirements into functional and technical requirements for various audiences
  • Experience leading workshops to share best practices with colleagues
  • Experience or passion in working with healthcare data

Bonus points for:

  • Experience working with and designing distributed systems in a cloud environment with an emphasis on extensible / scalable deployments.
  • Experience with AWS analytics tools such as EMR, Sagemaker, or others
  • Experience with Airflow or similar workflow orchestration technologies

Benefits:

  • Competitive salary

  • Flexible vacation
  • Parental leave
  • Health, dental, and vision
  • Healthy snacks and meals
