The Opportunity

As a Machine Learning Engineer at LifeBell AI, you’ll be responsible for developing ML time-series models for the early detection of sepsis and other related clinical conditions. In addition, you will help to develop LifeBell’s core infrastructure for training, testing and deploying machine learning models at scale. You'll work closely with our Data Science and Engineering teams, as well as CTO and CSO. You’ll join a tight-knit group that values collaboration, continuous improvement, and solving challenging technical and product problems in an emerging space. Plus, we like to have fun along the way.

 About Us

LifeBell AI creates intelligent software that saves lives by harnessing the latest advances in machine learning, analytics, and sensor technologies across healthcare. We’re a fast-growing, fully funded, Atlanta-based technology startup, with both local and remote employees.

Gari is the Chair and Professor of Biomedical Informatics at Emory University, and a Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech. Gari was previously an Associate Professor at the University of Oxford and a Principal Research Scientist at MIT where he commercialized multiple biomedical innovations, and managed a project to collect and analyze the world's largest public database of hospital data.

What You’ll Do

  • Develop cutting edge ML time-series models for the prediction of sepsis (and related medical conditions) using large clinical datasets collected from both hospital systems and wearable sensors
  • Build robust and scalable pipelines for time-series data ingest, preprocessing, feature computation, model inference and monitoring
  • Evaluate prediction model performance and apply suitable exploratory data and statistical analyses to identify potential areas for model improvement
  • Ask questions, connect the dots, and uncover opportunities to improve healthcare using machine learning

What We’re Looking For

  • 3+ years of professional experience applying machine learning to real-world problems
  • Experience building machine learning models on time-series data
  • Strong programming skills in Python and experience with one or more of PyTorch, Tensorflow or Jax
  • Good working knowledge of AWS
  • Self-motivated, with a genuine interest in the problems you’ll be solving


  • Masters or PhD in Computer Science, Engineering, Statistics, or a related technical field
  • Prior experience working on ML problems in healthcare

Benefits & Perks

  • Competitive salary with health, dental and vision insurance
  • Generous vacation, sick day, holiday, and leave policies
  • Equity incentive plan and 401K matching
  • Great office transit access, parking, and amenities
  • Gym membership, snacks & drinks, and a casual dress style
  • Opportunity for meaningful impact in a team-based environment
  • Remote-friendly culture with daily stand-ups, virtual lunches, and a video-first attitude
  • Self-funded, stable technology startup with an approachable leadership team
  • Work-life balance and team-activities
