Data Platform Engineer, Machine Learning

Clover Health, San Francisco, CA | Jersey City, NJ | Remote

Clover is a Medicare Plan done differently.

Clover is reinventing health insurance by working to keep people healthier.

We value diversity — in backgrounds and in experiences. Healthcare is a universal concern, and we need people from all backgrounds and swaths of life to help build the future of healthcare. Clover's engineering team is empathetic, caring, and supportive. We are deliberate and self-reflective about the kind of engineering team and culture that we are building, seeking engineers that are not only strong in their own aptitudes but care deeply about supporting each other's growth.

Clover uses Machine Learning to leverage our data—our most important asset—to generate value for our members automatically and at scale. From understanding who is a good provider to making our home visits more efficient and effective, our machine learning infrastructure will be central to executing on our central mission, and will have a direct impact on our members. The Data Platform Engineering team currently builds systems and tools that support the data needs of a diverse organization, and we want to expand the Machine Learning capabilities of our Data Platform. We are looking for Data Platform Engineers with experience in Machine Learning systems to join our team.

As a Data Platform Engineer, Machine Learning, you will:

  • Design, implement and validate high-reliability, distributed platforms for machine learning.
  • Build the tools and validation processes that help Clover translate insights into action at scale.
  • Use existing commercial and open source tools where appropriate to create a robust production platform.
  • Work closely with Clover's Data Science, Operations, and Engineering teams to ensure that the Machine Learning Platform is providing real value.
  • Debug, interpret and improve production Machine Learning models.
  • Document and give tutorials to ensure data scientists can use your tools easily.

You will love this job if:

  • You want to create impact with your work by finding insights in the data to unlock value and improve outcomes for real people.
  • You are comfortable acting autonomously in ambiguous and dynamic environments.
  • You value collaboration and feedback. You can communicate technical vision in clear terms— to your teammates and across the technology team more broadly. You are willing and able to help your teammates grow by demonstrating best practices, providing (and receiving) respectful and constructive feedback, and sharing your unique insights with everyone.
  • You enjoy working in a fluid environment, defining and owning priorities that adapt to our larger goals. You can bring clarity to ambiguity while remaining open-minded to new information that might change your mind.
  • You are not hesitant to jump in to help fix things that are broken and you feel a great responsibility to make sustainable systems. You are happy to fill in the gaps to reach a goal where necessary, even if it does not always fit your job description.
  • You have a genuine interest in what good technology can do to help people and have a positive attitude about tackling hard problems in an important industry.

You should get in touch if:

  • You have experience with Python, Python data science libraries (numpy, pandas, sklearn, tensorflow, etc.), and deploying Python apps into production environments.
  • You have a solid foundation in feature engineering, feature selection, and machine learning techniques.
  • You have experience interpreting, modifying, and debugging the inputs and outputs of production machine learning models.
  • You have both built and refactored complex distributed systems, especially machine learning systems.
  • You have scaled the impact of other engineers and data scientists through mentorship, development of reusable libraries, and documentation.
