CareRev, a 100% remote company, is bringing the future of work to Healthcare. We are developing a robust marketplace that connects trusted Healthcare professionals to relevant per diem shift opportunities. We are working to change the traditional relationship between Healthcare professionals and Healthcare facilities alike, aiming to build a future that ensures people who work in Healthcare have better tools and are empowered to be the healers they want to be.

What You’ll Do as a Director of Data Science is you will manage a team, provide guidance and feedback, and grow a data team to meet goals and exceed goals set by you. Working closely with data engineering, systems engineering, and product management to productize data science solutions built by you and the data science team. 

We are a YC S16 graduate and believe in quickly iterating on features to build products that people want. We deploy multiple times a day and work within a hybrid kanban/scrum system. We believe in the agile manifesto, but not the industry straight jacket that has arisen around what it means to be "agile". Build stuff that works, communicate across the company, react quickly to degradations in system/feature performance, have ideas on how to solve ever-evolving problems, respect and collaborate with fellow CareRevengineers, CareRevers, and customers.

What we're looking for:

  • Curious and experimental mindset
  • Relentless drive to source and discover data sets that can help produce value
  • Down to earth and realistic about what makes sense for data science to solve vs classic programming methods
  • Ability to discover areas of opportunity where data science lends a big advantage
  • Deep understanding of statistics and classical ML methods such as neural nets, NLP, reinforcement learning, clustering, and classification
  • The tendency towards even-keeled decision making and guidance managing team members
  • Hands-on experience with one or more of Python, R, Julia, or similar
  • Solid SQL skills

What we're looking for:

  • 6+ years of hands-on machine learning experience building and deploying solutions
  • 2+ years of managing other data scientists, analysts, and/or engineers
  • BS or MS in Science, Math, Economics or Engineering related field
