About us

Owkin is an AI biotechnology company that uses AI to find the right treatment for every patient. We combine the best of human and artificial intelligence to answer the research questions shared by biopharma and academic researchers. By closing the translational gap between complex biology and new treatments, we bring new diagnostics and drugs to patients sooner.

Owkin has raised over $300 million and became a unicorn through investments from leading biopharma companies (Sanofi and BMS) and venture funds (Fidelity, GV and BPI, among others).

Owkin is seeking the best and brightest to join our fast-growing and dynamic team.

Subjects include (but are not limited to) things such as ingestion, infrastructure, APIs, governance, compliance, representation, UX/UI of the data catalog, discoverability, content management, accessibility, insights, data viz, and knowledge graphs.
  • Define, implement and lead the vision and strategy for 2-3 squads, focused on making data accessible and actionable inside Owkin’s organization of data scientists and biomedical researchers.
  • Ensure that Owkin’s data strategy is scalable, increasingly actionable, aligns with overall business objectives, and drives innovation and competitive advantages.
  • Work closely with developers  to ensure the successful implementation of data products.
  • Establish clear success metrics and drive the team to deliver products that exceed business expectations.
  • Establish and enforce robust data governance policies to ensure data quality, security, and compliance with regulatory standards.
  • Drive initiatives to improve data quality, accuracy, and overall performance.
  • Ensure seamless integration and evangelization of data products across the organization.
  • Collaborate with several teams to implement a ‘build vs buy’ strategy.
  • Create compelling narratives about our data catalog that allow Owkin to impress our prospects and investors.
