Data Science Analyst

MedPro Group - Fort Wayne, IN3.6

Full-time
We are seeking experienced members to join the MedPro Group who are passionate about data and applying the latest machine learning technology to solve business problems. As an analyst on the Data Science team, you will be responsible for designing and building out the tools that progress the company along its digital journey. In this role, you will work alongside Data Scientists to utilize a vast amount of data to help develop a deep understanding of underwriting risk, understand the volatility of medical malpractice claims, and build common analytic platforms across our diverse businesses. In a hands-on capacity, you will build deep learning models for medical data extraction, text mining for better claim insights, and the education of end users to drive actionable decisions.

You will have an impact on patient safety and the quality of the millions procedures performed annually by the 200,000+ MedPro Group insured healthcare providers. This position reports to the Senior Data Scientist and is an opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a quickly growing team with high visibility.

What We Look For:
This is a new department with a fast growing team. We are looking for self-starters interested in growing with the department with a strong desire to see projects from beginning to end. Expect a startup-style environment with close collaboration between Data Science teammates and the business.
We have a large number of potential projects in pricing/underwriting, claims, digital marketing, security, and R&D. As a result, we find that driven and genuinely curious people thrive here (not what but why). Expect to be involved with multiple projects, with timelines from days to months. We desire candidates who can accomplish tasks without extensive direction.
Our colleagues have diverse backgrounds; as such, candidates must be comfortable in an environment of whiteboard sessions to bounce ideas around on experiment design and approach, among both on-site and remote teammates. Plan on working closely on a diverse number of Data Science initiatives, transforming the company direction.
