Data Engineer

Job description

TL;DR: fast-growing health tech company (AI for stroke detection), Amsterdam, 55-95k euros, Python


  1. When a patient with stroke symptoms arrives at a hospital, the patient’s brain is scanned and uploaded into our cloud.

  2. We immediately run AI algorithms detecting stroke location (if any) and type.

  3. The result is uploaded back into the hospital, displayed in our mobile applications and web interface.

Your Daily work

Your job is to make our ML pipelines fast, reliable, and reproducible. It includes:

  • Versioning and organizing training data.

  • Reproducibility of models’ training and experiments.

  • Performance and reliability of the production pipelines.

  • Anonymization and cleaning of data (DICOM images).

Product values

  • Performance: every saved minute of processing saves one month of the patient’s life.

  • Accuracy: AI analysis results can affect what treatment the patient will get if any.

  • Reliability: human lives depend on our product, so it must be always accessible and every result must be reproducible.

  • Compliance: our product is a medical device, and so it must comply with a lot of regulations.

Our values

These are the engineering values that we expect you to share:

  • Strive for progress not perfection.

  • Automate everything.

  • Keep tests reliable, atomic, fast, and reproducible.

  • Refactoring should be safe and easy.
