Job Description

Summary
Are you wicked smart? Are you a tinkerer at heart who likes to work on the cutting edge and push the bounds of what is possible? The Weil Institute for Critical Care Research and Innovation, within Michigan Medicine's Department of Emergency Medicine, is in search of a Senior Machine Learning Engineer to join our DataOps team to help build next-generation tooling, using industry best practices, to develop real-time data pipelines, integrate machine learning models into University of Michigan?s EHR system, and monitor the performance of our predictive analytics.

This position offers a unique opportunity to work hand-in-hand with our Machine Learning Specialists and clinical collaborators, to help them get the data they need to build their models and to get those models into a production environment and into the hands of clinicians. Unlike traditional research teams, the Weil Institute is focused on operating like a startup and getting products to market in order to ensure that our work can benefit patients sooner rather than later.

The DataOps team provides two key services for the Weil Institute:

1. Finding, cleaning, and delivering data to Data Scientists so they can build their models

2. Providing an environment to deploy and host models to be used by clinicians

As a member of the DataOps team, you will be responsible for managing data pipelines for large sets of PHI data including data extraction, transformation, cataloging, monitoring, integrity, administration, and security. These sets of data include structured EHR data, waveforms from bedside monitors, radiological images, clinician notes (NLP), ventilator data, as well as all supporting data sets and any future data sets that may be required. Additionally, you will be working collaboratively with other members of the team to build out frameworks and infrastructure to automate and deploy our models into production environments.

Success in this role requires an ambitious and self-motivated individual capable of identifying areas for improvement, designing solutions, and prioritizing work to ensure that we are meeting our goals. This often involves learning new languages, technologies, and skills in order to ensure that we are delivering the best solutions possible. An inquisitive individual with a strong desire for continuous improvement and always taking the next best step is a strong fit at the Weil Institute.

Who We Are
Note: Remote or Hybrid work arrangement options are available for this position
