About BridgeBio

BridgeBio is a biopharmaceutical company founded to discover, create, test, and deliver transformative medicines to treat patients who suffer from genetic diseases and cancers with clear genetic drivers. We bridge the gap between remarkable advancements in genetic science in academic institutions and the delivery of meaningful medicines to patients. Founded in 2015, the company has built a portfolio of 30+ drug development programs ranging from preclinical to late-stage development in multiple therapeutic areas including genetic dermatology, precision oncology, cardiology, endocrinology, neurology, pulmonology, and renal disease, with two approved drugs.

Our focus on scientific excellence and rapid execution aim to translate today’s discoveries into tomorrow’s medicines. We have U.S. offices in San Francisco, Palo Alto, Boston, New York, and Raleigh, with small satellites in other parts of the country. We also have international offices in Montreal, Canada, and Zug, Switzerland, and are expanding across Europe.

Who You Are:

BridgeBio has recently received approvals for two products, and we expect to gain more approvals over time, leading our transformation from a clinical-stage biopharma to a commercial one. The world is awash in retail data, and as part of our transformation, we must understand what factors drive successful launches quantitatively. The summer intern, machine learning, will help explore commercial datasets and generate insights into predictors of successful drug launches. This is an excellent opportunity to understand what is truly important to patients and physicians while taking/prescribing medicines, how medicines are commercialized and apply machine learning to drive business outcomes. To succeed in this role, you will need a deep understanding of machine learning algorithms, knowledge of statistical analyses, and an ability to communicate complex, technical ideas in a simple manner.
Responsibilities:
  • You will take ownership over the entire effort of building out this pipeline of top technical talent. The specific responsibilities we expect this will entail include:
  • Use a broad array of available datasets to identify factors responsible for successful drug launches
  • Stay up to date on state-of-the-art machine learning literature; mainly as applied to a commercial-stage biopharma company
  • Develop custom data models and algorithms to apply to data sets
  • Identify and acquire other data assets and improve the accessibility of this information by building tools to query the data along with existing datasets interactively
  • Communicate results and analyses clearly to both technical and non-technical audiences
  • Collaborate with operating personnel throughout the BridgeBio portfolio

  • No matter your role at BridgeBio, successful team members are:
  • Patient Champions, who put patients first and uphold strict ethical standards
  • Entrepreneurial Operators, who drive towards practical solutions and have an ownership mindset
  • Truth Seekers, who are detailed, rational, and humble problem solvers
  • Individuals Who Inspire Excellence in themselves and those around them
  • High-quality executors, who execute against goals and milestones with quality, precision, and speed
Education, Experience & Skills Requirements:
  • Bachelor’s degree required (ideally in a relevant science field)
  • Advanced degree, especially relevant Ph.D., ideal
  • Passion for helping patients
  • Strong background in a variety of machine learning techniques (clustering, decision tree learning, artificial neural networks, etc.) and their real-world advantages/drawbacks
  • Knowledge of advanced statistical techniques and concepts (regression, properties of distributions, statistical tests, proper usage, etc.) and experience with applications
  • A drive to learn and master new technologies and techniques
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills for coordinating across teams
  • Entrepreneurial spirit and ability to work independently
  • Deep understanding of core elements of BBP culture, values, and priorities
What We Offer:
  • Patient Days, where we are fortunate to hear directly from individuals living with the conditions we are seeking to impact throughout the year and learn how we can improve our efforts
  • A culture inspired by our values: put patients first, think independently, be radically transparent, every minute counts, and let the science speak
  • An unyielding commitment to always putting patients first. Learn more about how we do this here
  • A de-centralized model that enables our program teams to focus on advancing science and helping patients. Our affiliate structure is designed to eliminate bureaucracy and put decision-making power in the hands of those closest to the science
  • A place where you own the vision – both for your program and your own career path
  • A collaborative, fast-paced, data-driven environment where we inspire ourselves and each other to always perform at the top of our game
  • Access to learning and development resources to help you get in the best professional shape of your life
  • Robust and market competitive compensation & benefits package (Base, Performance Bonus, Equity, health, welfare & retirement programs)
  • Flexible PTO
  • Rapid career advancement for strong performers
  • Potential ability to work on multiple BridgeBio Pharma programs across multiple therapeutic areas over time
  • Partnerships with leading institutions
  • Commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion – with initiatives like Women at Bridge, we are committed to fostering an inclusive environment where every person feels seen, valued, and heard
