About Anomaly

Anomaly is enabling fast, accurate healthcare payments—reducing healthcare costs and complexity.

Over $300B is lost every year to avoidable denials and payment errors, impacting the affordability of healthcare. We’re partnering with the largest healthcare companies, including providers and payers, to build novel technology that reduces friction in healthcare payments. Smart Response uses AI to predict and prevent payment errors before they occur. This solution is powered by our claim prediction engine, which analyzes billions of transactions to predict claim denials and reasons with over 97% precision. Instant Pay (coming soon) will further streamline payments by enabling providers to immediately get paid at claim submission. Founded in 2020, we recently announced $17M in Series A and seed funding led by Redesign Health, RRE, and other top venture investors. Our fast-growing team brings together top engineers and healthcare experts committed to making healthcare more efficient and affordable.

Our engineering blog includes more info on the problem we're solving and large datasets we work with.

Applied ML Engineer Role 

As an Applied Machine Learning Engineer, you will play a key role in building the prediction engine that powers Anomaly's products to make healthcare payments more efficient. This includes executing cutting-edge ML techniques; training and testing models on hundreds of millions of data-points; and helping build-out a state-of-the-art human-in-the-loop ML infrastructure.

In this role, you will closely collaborate with other data scientists, members of the platform engineering term, and payments domain experts as we build products to streamline healthcare payments and reduce cost and complexity.

You will report directly to the Head of Data Science. The role is open to fully remote candidates who are US-based, with an expectation of occasional travel to our NYC headquarters.

What you'll do:

  • Write production-level machine learning models
    • Executing cutting-edge ML techniques to predict insurance payment amounts, denials, and overpayments with high precision, recall, and explainability.
      Making infrastructural choices in order to ensure that the trained models scale well across hundreds of millions of health insurance claims.
  • Collaborate with the team to build internal tools to support our company mission
    • Working with domain experts in the health insurance field to incorporate their knowledge into trained models.
    • Building interactive internal tools to obtain expert feedback for the purposes of model validation.
  • Have strong impact on innovative engineering projects
    • Running unsupervised anomaly detection on millions of heterogeneous health-insurance features using PySpark.
    • Shining a bright light on black-box models to make all anomalous signals easily interpretable.
    • Interacting with domain experts and encoding their  experience into simple heuristics. Pushing these heuristics to production for the purposes of weak supervision.
    • Training large-scale, weakly-supervised ML models using tools like Snorkel. Making sure these models are interpretable.
    • Tweaking models using expert feedback. Building dashboards to solicit that feedback using human-in-the-loop training techniques.
    • Experimenting with transformer model applications using the Pytorch / Tensorflow libraries.

What you'll need:

  • Background
    • Standard knowledge of Python data-science stack 
    • 5+ years in software engineering experience
    • Hacker mindset
    • Experience building out production-ready machine learning solutions
  • Nice To Have
    • Exposure to PySpark, PyTorch, Snorkel 
    • Experience working in a fast-paced, innovative environment

Life at Anomaly

Headquartered in NYC with a strong remote team, Anomaly brings together a diverse group deeply committed to our mission to bring streamline healthcare. Data scientists, engineers, clinicians, and more work together to realize a future where healthcare payments flow with precision. We live by our values, which help us accomplish more and create a workplace we love.

Anomaly's Values

  • Move with urgency: Our customers needed our product yesterday. We move fast—but not too fast—to bring our solution to market
  • Be willing to sit on the floor: No one is too senior to jump in and get the job done
  • Think 10x: We celebrate incremental improvements, but we always look for the step-function win
  • Seek feedback at 30%: We ask for feedback uncomfortably early, and offer it proactively (and respectfully) to others
  • Default to open: We internally share everything we can, creating a culture of trust and empowerment
  • Be kind: We take our work seriously, but we’re never too busy to be kind

Voluntary Self-Identification

For government reporting purposes, we ask candidates to respond to the below self-identification survey. Completion of the form is entirely voluntary. Whatever your decision, it will not be considered in the hiring process or thereafter. Any information that you do provide will be recorded and maintained in a confidential file.

As set forth in Anomaly’s Equal Employment Opportunity policy, we do not discriminate on the basis of any protected group status under any applicable law.

Race & Ethnicity Definitions

If you believe you belong to any of the categories of protected veterans listed below, please indicate by making the appropriate selection. As a government contractor subject to the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA), we request this information in order to measure the effectiveness of the outreach and positive recruitment efforts we undertake pursuant to VEVRAA. Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

An "Armed forces service medal veteran" means a veteran who, while serving on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a United States military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Form CC-305
Page 1 of 1
OMB Control Number 1250-0005
Expires 04/30/2026

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor. The law requires us to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We have a goal of having at least 7% of our workers as people with disabilities. The law says we must measure our progress towards this goal. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had one. People can become disabled, so we need to ask this question at least every five years.

Completing this form is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer is confidential. No one who makes hiring decisions will see it. Your decision to complete the form and your answer will not harm you in any way. If you want to learn more about the law or this form, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
