If you are able to manipulate voluminous data with different degree of structuring across disparate sources to generate and communicate actionable insights for internal or external parties, you may just be the person we are looking for.

Your tasks will include building models and applications like

  • machine learning models to prescribe best treatment/action for children at risk

  • Build working prototypes of solutions to showcase our capabilities in a wide range of areas
