Digital Biomarker Data Processing Solutions Architect in Basel

Background:
Roche's Pharma Research and Early Development Informatics team is the bridge between digital technology and science. We help drive medical innovation and are integral to the realization of truly Personalized Healthcare and the development of innovative treatments for our patients.

Digital tools, such as smartphones or wearables, can now continually measure and collect vital health information - or "Digital Biomarkers" - from patients. Digital Biomarkers are changing how future medicines will be developed and could lead to more personalized use of new medications that will transform the lives of patients. Advances in wearable devices, such as phones, watches, textiles or delivery devices, which track a patient's vital signs and monitor for symptoms, all have the potential to vastly accelerate clinical development.

Digital Biomarker studies are enabled by complex data collection and processing ecosystems comprising mobile applications, wearables, sensors, data lakes, data processing pipelines, analytics platforms, databases, device life cycle management solutions etc. Currently, the use of digital biomarkers across clinical development programs is expanding significantly - generating terabytes of sensor/tracking data from dozens of studies and 10'000s of patients across global studies.

Within Digital Biomarkers at Roche, we are seeking future-thinking innovators - digital technology and science specialists who can apply their expertise to transform some of the most challenging health conditions today.

* Collaborating closely with Mobile Solutions Architects, Cloud/Backend Architects, Data Analysts, Clinical Study Managers and Lifecycle Managers to ensure that the RPMP provides end-to-end support of digital biomarker studies
