The Opportunity

As a Data Scientist on One Medical’s core Analytics & Data Science team, you’ll work on data science projects with departments across the business, build foundational tools and libraries for other analysts and data scientists, and develop algorithms to help automate key operational workflows. You’ll have the opportunity to work with rich, interesting, accessible data in a modern data infrastructure -- and to see your work directly impact patients and providers. And you’ll join a collaborative, supportive data science team with a culture of learning.

You'll become a healthcare and healthcare data expert. You'll learn the business context of your projects well: their financial or strategic importance, how the key business processes work, and what important decisions are currently being made. You will develop your own perspective on these decisions, incorporating business knowledge and technical judgment.

You'll build strong relationships with business stakeholders. Because of your work, skills and interactions, business stakeholders will trust you to deliver useful, rigorous, timely analyses along with explanations they can understand. 

You'll be a partner to technical collaborators, such as data engineers. Within the Analytics & Data Science team, you'll consult other team members when appropriate, while also providing technical leadership in your own areas of expertise.


What you'll likely work on:

  • Helping One Medical deliver care at scale by thoughtfully optimizing and automating operations processes like clinician panel management and scheduling.
  • Enabling business stakeholders to better understand the data relevant to their work, make data-informed decisions, and more rigorously measure the impact of their work.
  • Making meaningful contributions to the data science stack by creating useful data or tools for other technical team members.

  • PhD in quantitative discipline (e.g. Stats, Applied Math, Operations Research, Physics, Quantitative Economics). Operations research preferred.
  • Coursework or experience in Statistics and Machine Learning
  • Familiarity with operations research problems and techniques (e.g. scheduling and routing problems, optimization techniques)
  • Technical tools such as Python, R, SQL
  • The ability to learn quickly when facing new situations, experiment to find new solutions, and take on the challenge of unfamiliar tasks. You'll need to extract lessons learned from failures and mistakes. And you'll learn through experimentation when tackling new problems, using both successes and failures as learning fodder
  • Experience making sound decisions, even in the absence of complete information; relying on a mixture of analysis, wisdom, experience, and judgment when making decisions. You considers all relevant factors and uses appropriate decision-making criteria and principles. You recognize when a quick 80% solution will suffice. And you make good, timely decisions that keep the organization moving forward
  • The ability to ask the right questions to accurately analyze situations. You acquire data from multiple and diverse sources when solving problems. And you uncover root causes to difficult problems; evaluating pros and cons, risks and benefits of different solution options. You make sense of complex, high-quantity, and sometimes contradictory information to solve problems
  • Knowledge of how businesses work and how organizations make money. You use knowledge of business drivers and how strategies and tactics play out in the market to guide actions.
  • The ability to gain insight into customer needs; identifying opportunities that benefit the customer.
