Digital tools, such as smartphones or wearables, can now continually measure and collect vital health information – or „Digital Biomarkers“. Digital Biomarkers are changing how future medicines will be developed and could lead to more personalized use of new medications that will transform the lives of patients.

  • Support project managers and study management teams by providing continuous adherence analysis
  • Establish data format specifications and work with cross functional teams to make digital biomarker data analysis ready
  • Develop software solutions to automate and document quality checks

Professional and technical requirements:

  • Very good university degree in engineering, mathematics, statistics, natural science or informatics
  • Good knowledge of Python
  • Experience with SQL and NoSQL data stores
  • Previous working experience with the common Python data analysis stack (e.g. NumPy/SciPy,

Pandas, Scikit-learn, etc)

  • A detail-oriented mind set
  • Strong analytical skills combined with conceptual thinking and structured working style
  • Ability to work in a multi-cultural team
  • Fluent in written and spoken English language

Nice to Haves:

  • Project-based work experience in the pharmaceutical industry/consulting preferred
  • Experience with signal processing
  • Strong working knowledge of best coding practices (versioning, TDD, debugging)
  • Familiar with the Atlassian suite (Confluence, Jira, BitBucket, Bamboo)
