Our platform promises substantial improvements to the accuracy of diagnosis and the efficacy of treatment of diseases like cancer, leveraging modern approaches in machine learning. Rigorous science and careful analysis is critical to the success of everything we aspire to do. Our team, comprising diverse employees with a wide range of backgrounds and experiences, is passionate about solving challenging problems and making a huge impact.
For us, it's still early days – a fast-growing, in-demand business and team, and the need to scale our Information Technology team that helps keep us quick and nimble while scaling our IT infrastructure to support our mission. At PathAI, we view IT as an enabler of our business and have invested significantly to build and grow the team with great support from the leadership team.
We're looking for an experienced Information Technology Systems Engineer to join our growing IT team. Our IT team, builds, scales, and maintains the corporate IT infrastructure using technical tools and innovative processes to help make IT at PathAI easy, instant, and omnipresent. Above all, we take pride in providing exceptional customer service to all of our stakeholders. We believe in using the best tool for the job and, while we’re always looking to improve, tools and platforms used in this role include:

  • Operating systems - e.g. Linux, MacOS, Windows
  • Desktop Management - Jamf and/or Intune
  • Scripting - Bash, Python and/or Powershell
  • Networking - e.g. Ubiquiti, Meraki, Juniper
  • Cloud services - e.g. AWS, Google, Aptible
  • Source code management and issue tracking - e.g. Gitlab, Jira, GitHub

If you're the right candidate for this hands-on role, you'll be part of the PathAI IT team in no time and be able to:

  • Lead the team in building and supporting resilient, innovative, and scalable network and server environments on-prem and in the cloud.
  • Build and Maintain customer focused solutions around technologies like Okta, Google Workspace and Slack.
  • Implement and administer backend IT infrastructure, including switches, wireless APs, VPN, and servers.
  • Design, implement, and maintain complex IT infrastructure through code using tools like Ansible, Troposphere, and Terraform.
  • Define and lead large-scale projects with detailed plans for execution while minimizing adverse impact to end-users.
  • Provide excellent in-person and remote customer service to stakeholders at PathAI.
  • Mentor junior IT staff and serve as an escalation point for more complex IT support requests.
  • Collaborate with the information security team on projects and security operations, including incident response, business continuity, and risk management.
  • Routinely work alongside other technical teams, like SRE and Product Engineering, on organization-wide projects.


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 had lots of exposure to different IT environments, typically via 5-10 years of work in this field.
  • Entrepreneurship. You regularly collaborate with other teams, and you enjoy the challenge of independently scoping out and leading big projects doing what’s necessary to get things done.
  • Problem-solving. You’re used to being seen as a technical leader and are comfortable solving thorny problems while effectively engaging junior colleagues in the process.
  • An insatiable appetite for innovation and applying your technical skills in novel ways.


For the right candidate, we'll offer a competitive salary plus equity. We have a strong benefits package, including heavily-subsidized health, dental, and vision insurance plans to keep you in peak shape. It's rounded out by:
