Join Mikata Health as a data scientist!

We’re looking for a smart, curious data scientist who is looking for purpose, growth, and flexibility. Mikata Health is an early stage tech company based in Calgary, Alberta on a mission to transform the experience of going to the doctor. As part of our team, you will:


Work on an incredible challenge

We’re developing artificial intelligence that frees up doctors and staff to focus on care, while helping patients conveniently access personalized care. We like to think of it as an intelligent ally for both clinics and patients.

You will work closely with our designers, developers and other data scientists to make this world-leading tech a reality.


Push yourself to the next level

There will be many times at Mikata Health when you will do something you’ve never done before. If that excites you, keep reading! We will do whatever we can to help you grow your skills to meet these challenges, and you will have the opportunity to do some of your best work.


Be part of a collaborative, flexible team

We aren’t clock-watchers or day-counters. If you want to work from home sometimes, that’s a-ok. If you want time off, let’s put it on the calendar and make a plan. We’re looking for someone who is a team player and gets stuff done.


In this role, you will:
  • Team up with our designers to identify the data that needs to be collected and where to get it from
  • Wrangle messy, real-world data from various sources including clinic records, patients, and sensors
  • Explore the data and work with our other data scientists to come up with ideas for machine learning models
  • Team up with our developers to figure out the best way to develop, validate, and deploy machine learning models
  • Adapt and integrate natural language processing capabilities into our tech
  • Interpret, visualize, and communicate various data to the Mikata Health team and our customers on an ad hoc basis


Currently, the tech we’re using (and planning to use) includes:
  • Javascript, Python
  • Scikit-learn and Tensorflow
  • Git (Github)
  • PostgreSQL, FHIR
  • Amazon Web Services infrastructure


We fully expect this list to change and grow based on your input. We’re looking for someone who weighs out the pros and cons of different approaches and builds things well, rather than years of experience with any one framework or tool.


Mikata Health is a good fit for you if:
  • The idea of “fixing healthcare” appeals to you
  • You’re a “data wrangler” with high standards for cleaning and organizing data
  • You’re interested in doing ground-breaking work in the application of machine learning to real-world healthcare problems
  • You’re curious, ask lots of questions, and learn quickly
  • You’re not afraid to try things and make mistakes, but you don’t make the same mistakes over and over again
  • You work well with others and communicate openly, clearly, and often
  • You’re a resourceful problem-solver who’s determined to get the job done
  • You like to work hard and have fun


This is a full-time position with a compensation package of salary, equity, and other benefits.
