About this job
Want to be a data science pioneer in a developing field, make a difference by impacting global health, and leave a legacy?
Good Analytics (http://goodanalytics.io) is committed to getting the public back in public health. Through innovative applications of data science to big media data (including news media, social media, and online metadata), we first listen to the public to understand their health needs and respond to those needs with tailored interventions in what we call “precision public health.”
We invite highly talented and highly motivated data scientists to apply.
Our internationally respected team of academics and thought leaders apply the very latest in computational methods to solve real world public health problems. This includes novel research and producing tools that bridge research into action.
We build scalable software systems for processing web data to provide key insights to public health professionals. Our projects are wide ranging and require a variety of skills that address discrete and big idea problems. We work on many public health issues (e.g., tobacco, product regulation, mental health, obesity, marketing, etc.) for a variety of clients (e.g., (government health agencies, drug companies, medical device makers, and philanthropies) and build out innovative technology stacks that have broadly marketable intellectual property (e.g., news media monitoring on public health issues that mirrors the Bloomberg Terminal, mining social media to produce real time trends for health and health behaviors, or implementing fully automated (both in implementation and analysis) in-depth, open-ended qualitative interviews on health issues).
We seek creative people with a diverse skill set: from brainstorming new ideas to training machine learning models, to generating data insights, to writing scalable production software. You will have the support of the company’s founders who have mentored scores of alumni in their academic work, including noteworthy computer and public health scientists. Most importantly, you will be working on transformative ideas that will change public health for decades to come by developing strategies to discover, describe, and deliver actionable insights.
