Software Engineer, Platform

| Cambridge

Machine learning is eating the world. At PathAI, we're applying it in amazing ways to pathology, healthcare, and detecting cancer and other diseases. We're applying our work to drug development, the clinical space, and as a global health initiative. Since it's early days for us, we recognize that the early tools we've built so far, while powerful, will need to be integrated into a broader platform in order to grow to the scale we aspire.

We're looking for a skilled and experienced engineer to join our team and help lay the groundwork for our growing software platform. We believe in using the best tool for the job. While we’re always looking to improve, in this role, those tools currently include:

  • Amazon Web Services
  • Kubernetes
  • Python
  • Docker
  • Elasticsearch

If you're the right candidate, you'll be exercising all the skills you have and building new ones along the way:

  • Architect a modern platform design for our growing product.
  • Build tools that make the rest of the team more productive, automating repetitive processes for both speed and accuracy.
  • Support a wide variety of use cases, from experimental work to mission-critical production operations.
  • Consider security and privacy, identifying soft spots and helping to address them before they become a serious problem.
  • Mentor, learn, and share knowledge with others along the way.

Requirements

Our employees come in all shapes and sizes, but to be successful in this role with us, you'll at least need:

  • Experience. You've been around the block a more than a couple times, typically via two to five years of work in this field.
  • Education. Generally, a bachelor's degree is really helpful in working with our team on this kind of work. But feel free to convince us if you're the exception.
  • An insatiable intellectual curiosity and the ability to learn quickly in a complex space 

Benefits

For the right candidate, we'll offer a competitive salary plus equity. Your compensation is rounded out by a strong benefits package:

  • Flexible work hours, with work-from-home options available for many roles
  • Three weeks of paid leave per year, an additional two weeks of sick time, plus extended holidays and team-approved leave
  • Ten days of 100% subsidized childcare per year
  • Healthcare, vision, and dental insurance plans (HMO or PPO), with voluntary add-ons available for dependent care, life, and accident coverage
  • Commuter benefit available for public transit or parking
  • Convertible sit-stand desks
  • Weekly in-office yoga classes
  • Free in-office lunch on Tuesdays and Fridays
  • Snacks and drinks in the office – which currently include a mountain of Milano cookies, endless Fruit Snacks, as well as cold brew coffee and kombucha on tap, among many other options. Our in-house Snackologist is also happy to take your requests!

Most importantly, you'll be doing important work with a team of people you'll genuinely enjoy spending the day with.

An Insider's view of PathAI

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

We’re really flexible - there are no on-call shifts, and you can work from home when you need to. A lot of my colleagues have young children and they can be there for their family. We all work hard, but the work is task-oriented and day-to-day workload is actually realistic.

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Automating and auto-scaling a generalized machine learning workflow that takes pathologists from a slide medical image to a clinical prediction

Mariel

Senior Platform Engineer

What makes someone successful on your team?

Someone who is willing to roll up their sleeves and do what it takes to get the job done will do well here! Since we're a small startup, we all wear multiple hats, so a willingness to adapt, be flexible, and learn from one another is really important.

Diana

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We hire smart people to solve hard problems early on, and just let them do their thing.
