About Proscia

Pathology is at the center of medicine, and is undergoing a profound transformation as the final frontier of digitization in healthcare. We started Proscia to accelerate pathology’s transition from microscope to images, and to use that data to change the way we think about cancer. We can’t change medicine alone. That’s why we’re looking for curious thinkers. Big dreamers. Developers, evangelists, pathologists, and scientists. Exceptional talent to help us use great power for good and advance humankind.

At Proscia, we push the limits of medicine and technology, solving problems the world has never solved before. We build software used by thousands of scientists and pathologists, who work on the front lines of fighting big enemies, like cancer, for patients around the globe. To accelerate our vision, Proscia has raised $35MM in funding from great investors like Scale Venture Partners, Hitachi Ventures, Flybridge, and more.

About this Position
The data to fight cancer lies in images - specifically, in gigapixel scans of tissue. Proscia’s industry-leading software enables physicians and researchers to participate in the digital revolution underway in pathology, delivering not just images and data, but also algorithmic insights exceeding the limits of the human eye. As a Business Analyst, you’ll report to the Product Management organization and be responsible for delivering on the strategic product roadmap, working alongside engineers, designers, and product managers to prioritize buildingwhat matters most and helping to revolutionize pathology.
