After our recent $2bn valuation, we’re excited to continue accelerating our impact by scaling with high caliber people with passion, commitment and energy to create and deliver technologies, services and products that drive human progress forward.

The AI team
Sword’s AI team has two main verticals:- Machine Learning Engineering (MLE) sits at the intersection of productized Machine Learning and software development, enabling Sword’s mission of treating billions of people with high clinical effectiveness. -e.g., a decision support system for clinical prescription management and, a ranking system to direct attention to members requiring assistance.
- Data Science (DS) sits at the intersection of statistics and machine learning, advising different teams across Sword on complex, nuanced product/business questions, towards data-driven and patient-centered decision-making. -e.g. which engagement touchpoints drive better clinical outcomes?
In this role, you’ll work directly with the team’s existing AI Product Manager to support both verticals.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Influencing the team’s roadmap by proactively identifying opportunities across Sword for high-impact ML/DS initiatives;
  • Partnering with technical and non-technical stakeholders to properly scope those initiatives, by deep-diving into the underlying pain points, assessing the adequacy of ML/DS solutions, defining requirements, and laying out high-level approaches;
  • Support execution & iteration by working with other teams (Engineering, Product) in tight feedback loops to make sure requirements are met, scope is adjusted as new information comes in, and development does not drift away from high-value product experiences;
  • Being the face of DS/ML solutions at Sword: preparing releases, communicating changes, collecting feedback from end users; and acting as the first layer of troubleshooting;
  • Deep-diving into specific topics across Sword both to guarantee AI compatibility and to bring relevant business/technical context to the team;
  • Acting as an enabler: preemptively identify and address risks, ambiguities, future needs, and blindspots; find balanced solutions for unexpected blockers.

Our ideal candidate has:

  • 2+ years of experience as a Data Scientist and/or Machine Learning Engineer and exposure/interest in Product OR 2+ years of experience as Product Owner/Technical Product Manager/Product Manager of a highly technical AI-powered product;
  • Working knowledge of SQL;
  • Experience in production-grade MLE/DS projects from ideation to maintenance (proof-of-concept, iteration, release and monitoring);
  • Ability to exercise sound judgment over ML/DS topics and understand the nuanced implications in the downstream product experience;
  • A good zoom dial: move between the problem and solution spaces as needed, interfacing with both non-technical (physical therapists, business decision-makers) and technical (MLE/DS, tech leads) stakeholders through adequate, timely communication;
  • Good oral and written communication skills, wielded often as tools for alignment-seeking and problem distillation;
  • Critical thinking: strategically disagree upwards or with peers as necessary;
  • Autonomy & self-direction: aware of the team’s direction, prioritize accordingly with limited supervision even when faced with ambiguity;
  • A natural curiosity and intuition over both old and new AI techniques and the product/business problems they can address.

Bonus points if you:

  • Have experience working in a fast-paced environment wearing different hats, acting scrappy when the situation calls for it;
  • Have experience with Big Query and Looker;
  • Have experience with the Python data stack;
  • Get itchy with suboptimal processes and can’t help but propose improved versions.

To ensure you feel good solving a big Human problem, we offer:

  • A stimulating, fast-paced environment with lots of room for creativity;
  • A bright future at a promising high-tech startup company;
  • Career development and growth, with a competitive salary;
  • The opportunity to work with a talented team and to add real value to an innovative solution with the potential to change the future of healthcare;
  • A stimulating environment with room for creativity;
  • A flexible environment where you can control your hours (remotely) with unlimited vacation;
