    Owkin was co-founded in 2016 by Thomas Clozel, MD, a clinical research doctor and former assistant professor in clinical hematology, and by Gilles Wainrib, PhD, an academic pioneer in the field of Artificial Intelligence in biology. The company was built on the belief that medical research should be collaborative, inclusive, and privacy-preserving. Today, Owkin is building a global research network — using federated learning — connecting data scientists, clinicians, researchers, and pharma on a research platform that keeps the data secure and preserves privacy. Owkin’s work has been published in Nature Medicine and other top-tier journals. Owkin has raised over $70M from leading VC funds and is now working with the largest cancer centers and pharmaceutical companies in Europe and in the US.

    Our data scientists are among the best in the world, with several Kaggle Masters, DREAM Challenge top performers, and publications in ICML, NIPS and other top scientific journals. Owkin is backed by renowned investors — such as F-Prime Capital & Eight Roads Ventures, GV, BPI, Cathay Innovation, Frst and NJF Capital — as well as a distinguished scientific board. To build this vision, Owkin is growing rapidly, with offices located in the USA, France, UK.

    Owkin is a great place to work. Unfortunately, being a coveted workplace means we are vulnerable to recruitment phishing scams. We urge all job seekers and candidates to be wary of potential scams. Most of these have individuals posing as representatives of prominent companies, including Owkin, with the aim of obtaining personal, sensitive, or financial information from applicants. These scams prey upon an individual’s desire to obtain a job and can sometimes “feel” like a genuine recruitment process. Some red flags are identified below. Should you encounter a recruitment process that claims to be for Owkin but is not consistent with the below, please do not provide any personal or financial information:

    • Legitimate Owkin recruitment processes include communication with candidates through recognized professional networks, such as LinkedIn. However, further communication is always through an official Owkin email address (from the @owkin.com domain), over the phone or though Recruitment platforms (WelcomeKit, talent.io, hidden.market, Fifty Talent or Hiresweet);
    • Legitimate Owkin recruiters will not solicit personal data from candidates during the application phase including, but not limited to, date of birth, social security numbers, or bank account information;
    • Legitimate Owkin interviews may be conducted over the phone, in person, or via an approved enterprise videoconferencing service (such as Google Meets or Highfive). They will never occur via Signal, Telegram or Messenger
    • Legitimate Owkin offers of employment are based on merit and only extended once a candidate has interviewed with members of the hiring team.
