Bodyport is a virtual cardiac clinic aimed at reducing the burden of heart disease through personalized, evidence-based care. In just one daily step, our novel sensors and algorithms predict changes in health status, enabling early, optimized interventions that significantly improve outcomes. Bodyport is initially targeting heart failure, a chronic condition affecting over 6 million Americans and a leading cause of hospitalizations (1M/year) and healthcare spending ($35B/year). Bodyport is backed by leading investors including Initialized Capital, Playground Global, Boehringer Ingelheim, Y Combinator, and Rock Health.
As Senior Data Scientist, you will develop the algorithms that help predict and prevent heart disease. You will use our novel data sets and biomarkers to decipher and interpret the complex patterns that signal the onset of disease. You will leverage your deep understanding of data science and physiology to bridge communication between our engineering and clinical teams. You will help design key validation and outcomes studies, lead the analysis of results, and present key findings in journals and at conferences.
Full compensation packages are based on candidate experience and certifications.
