Can you deliver production-ready Python & JavaScript code?

Do you thrive in collaborative environments?

Have you been wanting to get your teeth into NLP (natural language processing) but haven't been given the chance?

Well, my client, a highly innovative pharmaceutical development organisation has a rather unique opportunity open for you to collaborate and support a group of highly skilled Research Scientists!

The compensation range for this role is as follow:

  • Base salary up to $130K
  • 10% target bonus

  • Top-level Healthcare benefit programmes

The interview process is projected to take 4-6 weeks (depending on availability) and will go as follows:

  • Initial stage screening with HR
  • Second round conversation with the Hiring Manager
  • Third stage with the Group Leader
  • Final stage - Take-home assignment that includes a follow review
  • Offer

As an Engineer in this team, it's expected that you will utilise your existing skill-sets but, you will be encouraged to develop new ones! This organisation offers a wide range of career development paths but most exciting of all, if you are looking to get your teeth into NLP, this is one of the few places that will give you that chance!

So here's what they're looking for in you...

  • You need to be a competent and confident Engineer that's open to working in NYC (post-COVID).
  • On top of that, you'll also need to have some proven experience in creating and deploying production-ready code in Python/JavaScript in a Linux environment
  • In an ideal world, you would have worked closely with Pharma based Research Scientists. These Researchers will then go on to use a number of different text mining/NLP techniques to extract data from clinical documentation to generate a target-indication database.
  • The work that this company is doing is not only highly complex but it's being done in unknown and unexplored territories meaning, you'll need to very comfortable working with other Engineers/Scientists/CV folks who all take a multimodal approach.
  • You have a desire for learning on the job! This is a fast-paced, forward-thinking company that really does encourage self-development

* Oh and It's a huge plus if you have experience in MarkLogic platform (They're considering migrating to it) but not a must at this point.
