Our Mission

Known Medicine is finding the right treatment for every cancer patient and the right drug for every cancer. We run experiments at scale in our automated lab, built to enable better machine learning based predictions over time. 


The Role

We have generated millions of images of cells, many with labeled outcomes of whether the patient actually responded to treatment.  We are making predictions of patient responses to drugs based on increasingly complex markers, mostly based on our phenotypic images of cells. You’ll have the opportunity to have a massive impact on how we run our platform and build out our dataset, design experiments, and extract insights about different treatments and cancers.  Experience in biology isn’t required as long as you are eager to collaborate with the team!


You will join a small software engineering/data science team, and your responsibilities will include:

  • Collaborate with biologists and automation scientists to design and execute as unbiased on experiments as biologically possible
  • Evaluate platform changes for continuity and consistency
  • Identify features and develop basic ML models to predict patient response from cellular images


Your Background

  • 3+ years experience in data science, ideally in a product-focused role
  • Bachelor’s degree in statistics, math, computer science, or similar analytical discipline
  • Demonstrated ability to work independently and aid in company prioritization


Who You’ll Join

Our 12-person team spans biology, data science, and software engineering. We have developed an automated platform in our 4,300 sq ft Salt Lake City, UT lab and have research collaborations with several top cancer centers. We offer health insurance, a 401k plan, snacks and drinks in the office, lunch provided three days weekly, and flexible vacation/sick leave.
