About Lumiata

Lumiata delivers Machine Learning powered health analytics to make healthcare smarter. At the intersection of clinical knowledge, data science and machine learning, Lumiata provides cost and risk analytics to health plans, care providers and employers.

We process TBs of patient data per customer, which we use to train models that are used to solve our customer’s prediction and classification problems. We use a wide variety of ML techniques, ranging from simple linear regression, decision trees, SVMs to deep learning. We’re building a Big Data / Machine Learning platform for managing PBs of data, as well as providing our data science team capabilities that will allow them to iterate very quickly throughout the ML experimentation lifecycle: data cleansing, feature engineering, training, predict/classify, tune, and repeat. Our ambitions are around reaching economies of scale via our platform.

Overview

We are seeking a Principal Data Scientist to join our Data Science team which focused on researching and implementing learning algorithms at scale to become part of our Lumiata Machine Learning Platform. This individual will play a critical science and ML engineering leadership role, by stirring the team to specific experiment and research directions that can take our platform to the next level. We want this individual to lead internally and externally by contributing to the research and technical communities.

As a Data Scientist at Lumiata you will learn in detail how medical information flows from patient all the way through to meaningful insights and the many intricacies involved along the way including but not limited to:

  • How AI and machine learning can transform healthcare.

  • How to build and deploy novel machine learning products.

  • How medical information is stored and communicated between different actors in the healthcare system.

  • What modern, open standards have been developed to better communicate and represent medical data.

  • What specific standards must be respected and how to ensure compliance to handle sensitive healthcare data including HIPAA, SOC2 and HITRUST among others.
