Work with the industry leader

Eon is the leader in Patient Management Software, one of the fastest-growing areas of healthcare enterprise sales. Our Patient Management Platform has some of the biggest clients in healthcare because we have a highly differentiated value proposition that is uniquely appealing to an enterprise: pre-built applications with a deeply configurable, no-code platform for integrated EPM throughout an organization.


As the leader in the EPM market, we are pioneering the applied use of Artificial Intelligence to enable next-generation health enterprises at organizations ranging from small integrated networks to Fortune 500 companies.


Position overview

This is an opportunity to join the innovation division of EON, a leader in the healthcare patient management space, and expand our Computational Linguistics and Machine Learning capabilities. You will work with our Data Science, Engineering and Product teams to develop product features based on Computational Linguistics and Machine Learning technologies, ensuring that these new features address customer needs.


You have a proven track record of creating CL models to extract information from unstructured texts, using advanced statistical methods to understand model results, and developing software to support these processes. You have a strong mathematical and statistics background, with the ability to understand algorithms and methods from a mathematical and intuitive viewpoint. In addition, you have a keen sense of ownership, resilience, and drive; like dynamic projects and enjoy being challenged; are comfortable in evolving requirements and occasional uncertainty, and enjoy making a difference in people’s lives.


In this role, you will apply Computational Linguistics and Machine Learning to create systems that innovate healthcare products at scale. In addition to a world-class data set, you’ll also have access to domain experts for annotations to help drive investigation and learning.
