We are Orbit

Orbit is a multi-awarded, purpose-driven startup based in Munich (Germany) with the commitment to empowering people living with chronic conditions to take better control of their health and lead a quality life. We do this by harnessing the power of IoT, sensor, and AI technologies to ensure people get access to the intervention and personalize care they need, even when they are away from their doctors.

Our first solution, Neptune, enables physicians to effectively personalize treatments for patients with Parkinson’s, helping them attain optimal symptom control. Orbit is also developing a digital biomarker platform that enables the integration and orchestration of an array of digital health solutions and devices to address co-morbidities and multiple chronic diseases.

We are looking for a highly skilled individual with an extensive Data Science expertise (AI and ML background) to be our Lead Data Scientist. If you are passionate about building pioneering MedTech products to solve real-world problems, developing talents, and making a difference in patients’ lives, we want to meet you!

Your Role & Responsibilities

  • Research, Development, and Evaluation of state-of-the-art deep learning and machine learning algorithms
  • Development and implementation of Data Science and AI/ML workflows geared towards extracting actionable information from time series data
  • Setup of continuous learning environments for optimization of AI-based models concerning robustness and stability
  • Work closely with product and clinician teams to plan projects and structure work in an Agile development process 
  • Document ML-based systems and facilitate architectural reviews of projects
  • Identify areas of innovation, formulate research hypotheses, and rapidly prototype new models

Technical Skills & Qualifications

  • M.Sc. or PhD in Data Science, Computer Science, Computational Statistics, Mathematics, Informatics, Physics etc.
  • Preferably a senior-level understanding of classical and deep learning-based ML methods (e.g., CNNs, DL Auto-encoders, etc.)
  • Knowledge and experience of relevant analytics, visualization and ML libraries is vital (e.g., SciPy/NumPy, Pandas/Matplotlib, Keras/TensorFlow, PyTorch, etc.)
  • Experience with Model Deployment / ML Ops is preferred
  • Experience with tooling such as AWS SageMaker, AML, Cognitive Services and related cloud-based services (e.g., Model-as-a-Service) is desirable
