Abridge was founded in 2018 with the mission of powering deeper understanding in healthcare. Our AI-powered platform was purpose-built for medical conversations, improving clinical documentation efficiencies while enabling clinicians to focus on what matters most—their patients.

Our enterprise-grade technology transforms patient-clinician conversations into structured clinical notes in real-time, with deep EMR integrations. Powered by Linked Evidence and our purpose-built, auditable AI, we are the only company that maps AI-generated summaries to ground truth, helping providers quickly trust and verify the output. As pioneers in generative AI for healthcare, we are setting the industry standards for the responsible deployment of AI across health systems.

We are a growing team of practicing MDs, AI scientists, PhDs, creatives, technologists, and engineers working together to empower people and make care make more sense.

Candidates living in (or willing to relocate to) San Francisco, New York or Pittsburgh strongly preferred

The Role

From transcribing medical conversations to delivering key takeaways, our trailblazing work in machine learning research makes the Abridge experience possible. We're currently looking to hire an ML Science Manager to lead and manage a team of applied scientists with experience in machine learning and natural language processing and a passion for developing technology to solve both clinical and administrative problems in the medical domain. The ideal candidate will bring technical mastery, fluency with statistics and deep learning (including foundation models), a genuine interest in the medical domain, and strong critical thinking skills to the role. At Abridge, all of our ML work has a strong research component, and all of our research scientists contribute directly to real products that impact the lives of doctors.

What You'll Do

  • Lead and Manage Research Team: Oversee a team of research scientists, providing guidance, mentorship, and support to foster their growth and ensure the success of research projects.

  • Advance Medical NLP: Drive the advancement of the state of the art in medical NLP, focusing on areas such as conversation summarization, evidence extraction, outcome prediction, evaluation techniques, and experimentation.

  • Contribute Research: Actively contribute to the wider research community by sharing and publishing original research, and encourage team members to do the same.

  • Define and Develop Solutions: Collaborate with the team to define important problems, identify appropriate baselines, develop state-of-the-art methods, and integrate them into production.

  • Incorporate Feedback: Engage with clinicians to gather real-time feedback, guiding further refinements and innovations in our products.

  • Results-Oriented Approach: Maintain a focus on results in the face of ambiguous problems and uncertain outcomes, ensuring that research initiatives have a tangible impact.

What You'll Bring

  • Demonstrated through papers and (most likely but not necessarily) advanced graduate degrees in, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, or equivalent experience.

  • Proven track record of high-impact publications at peer-reviewed AI conferences (e.g. *CL, NeurIPS, ICML, ICLR).

  • Significant contributions to open source and deployed technology, showcasing the real-world impact of your work.

  • Demonstrated ability to lead and manage a team, providing both technical and professional guidance.

  • Strong programming skills with proven experience crafting, prototyping, and delivering machine learning solutions into production.

  • Experience with deep learning libraries (e.g. PyTorch, Jax, Tensorflow) and platforms, multi-GPU training, and statistical analyses of observational and experimental data.

Must be willing to travel up to 10%

Abridge typically hosts a 3-day team retreat every quarter, where our ML, Engineering and Product teams meet up in person at one of our main locations (Pittsburgh, SF, NY). These retreats often feature internal hackathons, collaborative project sessions, as well as social events that provide the team with opportunities to connect and unwind after hours.

We value people who want to learn new things, and we know that great team members might not perfectly match a job description. If you’re interested in the role but aren’t sure whether or not you’re a good fit, we’d still like to hear from you.

Why Work at Abridge?

  • Be a part of a trailblazing, mission driven organization that uses audio as the wedge to improve the healthcare delivery experience

  • Unlimited PTO, plus 12 national holidays

  • Comprehensive and generous benefits package:

  • 16 weeks paid parental leave, for all employees

  • Flexible working hours — we care more about what you accomplish than what specific hours you’re working

  • Remote work environment

  • Equity for all new employees

  • Generous equipment budget for your home office setup ($1600)

  • Opportunity to work and grow with talented individuals, and have ownership and impact at a high growth startup.

  • Plus much more!

Life at Abridge

At Abridge, we’re driven by our mission to bring understanding and follow-through to every medical conversation. Our culture is founded on doing things the “inverse” way in a legacy system—focusing on patients, instead of the system; focusing on outcomes, instead of billing; and focusing on the end-user experience, instead of a hospital administrator's mandate.

Abridgers are engineers, scientists, designers, and health policy experts from a diverse set of backgrounds—an experiment in alchemy that helps us transform an industry dominated by EHRs and enterprise into a consumer-driven experience, one recording at a time. We believe in strong ideas, loosely held, and place a high premium on a growth mindset. We push each other to grow and expose each other to the latest in our respective fields. Whether it’s holding a PhD-level deep dive into understanding fairness and underlying bias in machine learning models, debating the merits of a Scandinavian design philosophy in our UI/UX, or writing responses for Medicare rules to influence U.S. health policy, we prioritize sharing our findings across the team and helping each other be successful.

Diversity & Inclusion

Abridge is an equal opportunity employer. Diversity and inclusion is at the core of what we do. We actively welcome applicants from all backgrounds (including but not limited to race, gender, educational background, and sexual orientation).
