At PathAI, we're applying machine learning in amazing ways to pathology, healthcare, and detecting cancer and other diseases.

  • Drive and uphold rigorous scientific standards, bringing consistency to the analyses you encounter and ensuring our discoveries are adequately reviewed.
  • Solve interesting problems with machine learning and data science.

  • Collaborate across a range of groups - product, design, front-end, machine learning, business operations, and infrastructure teams.
  • Recommend new features for internal and external users, and improve existing ones to enhance the user experience.
  • Drive the prioritization of our platform development, considering the team and our future roadmap.
  • Mentor, learn, and share knowledge with others along the way.

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

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.
