The opportunity

At Bloomful, we believe access to high-quality women's healthcare should be friction-free and personalised to all who need it. That's why we're building a new, digitally enabled patient journey for better gynaecological health.

We are recruiting a machine learning lead to take our current platform to the next stage and deliver robust data-driven insights to support the diagnosis and management of common gynaecological conditions.

About Bloomful

Patient journeys in women’s health are chaotic, ambiguous and outdated. Common gynaecological conditions can take 10+ years to diagnose, impacting people's quality of life, ability to work and mental well-being. Meanwhile, biotech and pharma companies struggle to get the data they need to develop better treatments.

Bloomful is developing an AI-powered platform for diagnosing and managing common gynaecological conditions like PCOS and endometriosis whilst building an actionable gynaecological data infrastructure to advance research in the field.

We are backed by Google for Startups and are female-founded.

This is the role for you if...

This role is ideal for an experienced machine learning engineer seeking the opportunity to shape our ML capabilities from the ground up, taking responsibility for early technical decisions and delivering in a green-field environment with autonomy and trust.
