    About us

    Our pioneering federated learning framework opens a way to train AI models without moving data from hospital and industry partners – solving the critical privacy and security issues that have inhibited AI’s potential to transform healthcare until now.

    We were co-founded 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, in 2016.

    We now collaborate with dozens of leading academic, research and life sciences institutions worldwide. Our platform is being used extensively for R&D, either through internal R&D or through pharma-partnered programs, to discover and develop better treatments in eight cancer types. On the clinical applications side, our collaborative work produces precision medicine diagnostic solutions.

    Owkin has raised over $255M from investors and works 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 Nature, ICML, NIPS and other leading scientific journals.

    Beyond our cutting-edge technologies, our strongest belief is in the power of collective intelligence. At Owkin, we foster a global community of top cancer physicians and researchers through our decentralized approach. The only way to outsmart cancer is to work together - and the most effective way to do that is through federated learning.

    Owkin is looking for a highly motivated Product Management Intern to join our Product Team for a 4-to-6-month internship in Nantes (preferably) or Paris.

    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.
