FibriCheck is looking for an experienced Data Scientist to make an impact in the mobile healthcare industry.

About FibriCheck

FibriCheck is a young, dynamic and fast-growing company in the digital health sector. Our mission? Preventing unnecessary strokes. How? Our smartphone and smartwatch applications make it easy for people to self-monitor their heart rhythm and therefore to detect possible arrhythmias, such as atrial fibrillation, in time. A 60-second check-up immediately learns our users if they need further follow up. Faster detection of arrhythmias will lead to faster and better treatment and will avoid people from suffering possibly severe complications like a stroke. Our applications are more than just apps, they are full-fledged medical devices that are CE-marked and FDA-approved. FibriCheck is used today by over 600.000 people, is prescribed by over 1.500 physicians and has processed over 6 million PPG measurements. Today we are mainly focusing on Europe, but our plans to conquer the world are ambitious!

Your responsibilities
  • Research and develop state-of-the-art deep learning methods and leverage over 6-million heart rhythm traces to improve the detection of heart rhythm on PPG data. You will need to go beyond the regular supervised way to push the boundaries of PPG heart rhythm analysis.
  • Explore the FibriCheck database to discover new insights with clinical relevance. You will perform advanced data analytics to confirm or disprove hypotheses and suspicions from healthcare experts (i.e. cardiologists). This work will ensure FibriCheck remains a frontrunner in the mobile healthcare sector.
  • Cooperate with the clinical team at FibriCheck to process, analyze and visualize data acquired in clinical studies. You communicate the findings in a clear and visual manner to your colleagues and external stakeholders.
  • Possibly interact with the business team and apply your data science expertise to business-related topics.
Your profile
  • A Master’s Degree or PhD in Data Science, Computer Science, Mathematics, Statistics, civil engineering or comparable field.
  • A strong theoretical background in data science and machine learning, with a strong emphasis on statistics and deep learning.
  • Expert knowledge of Python and several machine learning and visualization libraries (TensorFlow/PyTorch, NumPy, pandas, SciPy, Matplotlib, seaborn, …).
  • Knowledge of Git (or another distributed version control system).
  • Knowledge of AWS (or another cloud platform).
  • Knowledge of Docker (or another containerization platform) is a plus.
  • A biomedical background, great interest or a willingness to learn about the mobile health industry.
  • Experience with time-series data is a plus.
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills (Dutch and/or English).
  • Positive attitude, proactive mindset and team player.
  • Actively participate in a culture of innovation.
What do we offer?
  • A full-time job, attractive salary and numerous benefits (meal vouchers, health insurance, company car, …).
  • A challenging and innovative work environment with plenty of opportunities to grow.
  • Training opportunities to make you excel at work and learn more about your interests.
  • A scaleup environment, where it will be very very difficult to get bored.
  • A flexible working environment.
  • An office at Corda Campus in Hasselt and in the center of Leuven combined with the opportunity to (partly) work from home.
