Job Description:

CytoVeris Inc. is changing the paradigm in cancer surgery through the introduction of optical based "guided surgical tools". CytoVeris is working at the convergence of optical science, cancer biology, and machine learning and translating that convergence to clinical application. -Our technology helps surgeons to discern between cancer tissue and healthy tissue in real-time during surgery and as a result will increase the probability of successful surgical outcomes. -We use multi-spectral light analysis, coupled with Artificial Intelligence, to provide an optical "fingerprint" of tissue. -
If you're inspired by the possibilities of technology to improve patients' lives and you thrive on working in a dynamic environment where each person can make a significant difference, consider joining our team.
Senior Machine Learning EngineerWe are seeking a motivated Senior Machine Learning Engineer to develop and optimize image-based Machine Learning algorithms for our novel biomedical optical products. This position will help define the architecture and methodology, as well as drive improvements to our classification algorithms that are the foundation upon which our products are built. This position reports to the Chief Software Architect and manages a team of ML engineers and guides the direction and implementation of the Company's algorithm development efforts. The right person will offer a balance of strategic direction in ML and the ability and willingness to deep dive into the selection, coding and optimization of machine learning algorithms.
Your ImpactCytoVeris is currently gathering training data in the clinic every day, and that data is being used to train our tissue classification algorithms which will be the heart of a new product line for intraoperative cancer and tissue identification. In this role, you will lead the effort to use your Machine Learning skills to build on and improve our algorithms. -You will have the opportunity to bring the latest Machine Learning techniques to bear on a difficult but solvable problem, and to teach and share your knowledge, and learn from smart, talented and motivated teammates. You will be an early employee in a startup that is poised for rapid growth and value creation. You will also have the opportunity to build your own AI/ML team as the Company grows.

  • Lead the effort to build out and improve our Machine Learning tissue classification algorithms that will enable our launch products for use bladder, prostate and breast cancer.
  • Evaluate and develop new deep learning/ML methods and algorithms for image processing and classification.
  • Collaborate with a diverse team of engineers, scientists, clinicians and business development professionals and work in a dynamic and fast-paced environment.
  • Lead and mentor other members of the software and engineering teams on ML approaches and workflow.
  • Interact with our outside Principal Investigators and their clinical teams to interpret the data used as inputs for training our models.
  • Collaborate with our outside AI/ML advisors and scientific advisory board.
  • Interact with the FDA to explain our ML classification software, how it works, how it was trained and validated and how it will be revised and controlled using best ML software practices.
  • Help recruit AI/ML talent to expand the team.
  • Stay abreast of the latest machine learning techniques by reviewing the literature, attending conferences, etc.
  • Work within our ISO13485 medical device development processes.
    • 3+ years of experience as a practicing Machine Learning Engineer, with 2+ years of experience as a technical lead, including mentoring ML engineers and scientists.
    • MS or PhD in Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, or a related field or equivalent on-the-job experience.
    • An ideal candidate will also have published work in top-tier ML/medical imaging conferences and journals.
    • Fluency in Python.
    • Extensive, practical knowledge of Machine Learning techniques for image processing and feature recognition, deep learning network architectures (CNNs, GANs, etc.), regularization, loss functions, optimization strategies, etc.
    • Expertise in one or more scientific analysis and prototyping environments such as the SciPy/NumPy stack or with a deep learning framework such as TensorFlow/Keras or PyTorch.
    • Previous experience in a new product development environment, preferably healthcare related.
    • Ability to quickly turn general user requirements into high quality software and perform fast iterations. -Familiarity with Agile software development methods a plus.
    • Experience working as part of a multi-disciplinary team, in a fast-paced prototyping and product-development environment.
    • Experience in working in an ISO 13485 environment is a plus.
    • Experience with spectroscopy, lasers and medical device equipment is a plus.
    • The ability and desire to work collaboratively and a passion for learning, teaching and new technologies.
