Evoleen drives the digital healthcare revolution by creating built-to-buy start-ups in close collaboration with global corporate partners. Evoleeners are entrepreneurs-at-heart. We take ownership for the realization of our start-ups and share both risks and returns with our partners. At Evoleen, you will be joining a team of highly motivated entrepreneurs that maintains a can-do culture marked by passion, honesty, and a love of good coffee.

We are looking for someone exceptional who is driven to make a real impact on the healthcare environment across the globe, who is excited to join a start-up company and to play an active role in shaping the start-up and its ecosystem, and someone who understands this sector and who is willing to fully immerse themselves in the product.

Data Science Intrapreneur

Several of our new ventures can benefit from the application of data science, both in the form of machine learning and application of other statistical methods. Examples include, but are not limited to, audio processing, image processing, behaviour patterns and others. Your mission will be to drive all data science tasks from the get-go. You will interact with customers and users from the very beginning. Typically, your first job will be to determine if the application of data science will provide the expected upside to the business case at hand. To do so, you will create prototypes and MVPs to validate your technology and market assumptions. If this proves successful, your next task is to build the full data science pipeline together with other engineers in the team. You will closely cooperate with a team of entrepreneurs along this journey. Depending on your skills and ambition, you have the option of joining a venture as co-founder and/or technical lead.

We are looking for someone who is willing to go into uncharted territory, for whom the experience of the journey matters more than following a pre-planned path. We are looking for someone who can work with the undefined and who thrives in a team of like-minded people, rather than working alone and doing things by the book.
