Summary: Join VideaHealth as key member of our Artificial Intelligence team to develop data pipelines and evaluate complex ML systems that eventually improve dental health of millions of people.
About us: VideaHealth is a venture-backed startup developing artificial intelligence to automatically detect diseases in dental x-ray imaging. Spun out of MIT in 2018, our prior research has shown that dentists miss up to 50% of dental diseases. VideaHealth helps dentists detect these conditions and effectively communicate treatment recommendations to patients. Our product increases revenue for dentists and has the potential to reduce health risks for over 210 million patients every year in the US alone. In addition, we are helping dental insurance companies streamline their claims review process with AI. We have a strong core team and advisors, have raised over $6.5M in seed funding so far. Our investors include Pillar VC (invested in Path AI), Zetta Venture Partners (invested in Tractable), and angel investors like Frederic Kerrest (Co-founder of Okta), Avid Larizadeh Duggan (Former Google Ventures Partner), and Bradley Armstrong (Vice President at Slack). Our work has been featured at Techcrunch and the Wall Street Journal. We have great momentum and are now looking for ambitious talent to join our team! About the position: As a Data Scientist you will become a core member of the AI team and execute on ambitious milestones, taking ownership of your own projects.
You will have a unique opportunity to be hands on and shape all stages of a complex ML data pipeline. This includes a large variety of tasks for which your analytical skills coupled with solid technical knowledge are a key requirement.
