About Us:

At Emendata, we help bridge the gap between data and the real world. We partner with organizations that have a social mission and help them tackle their problems using analytics. Our role in these partnerships goes end to end—we handle everything from wrangling the data to analyzing the problem to turning the results into something actionable. Importantly, we understand that this analytics pipeline does not live in a vacuum. Getting to meaningful numbers requires more than just the right methods; it calls for understanding the people, policies, data, and systems involved. With this approach, our small but fast-growing team is having a big impact, taking on challenges like using analytics to combat fraud, waste, and abuse in Medicare.

  • Support project teams internally by providing input on study design and application of statistical methods
  • Support development of data analysts through technical mentoring, code review, trainings, and other assistance
  • Continue growing subject matter expertise by staying up-to-date on the latest statistical techniques and applications; contribute to the development of the company’s institutional knowledge
  • Engage with stakeholders to understand client needs/priorities, business processes, program policy, data, etc.

Required Qualifications:

We are looking for you to have the following qualifications:

  • Education: M.S. or Ph.D. in statistics or related field

  • Programming: Experience performing analyses using SAS, Python, Stata, R, or SQL
  • Communication: Ability to write clearly and communicate effectively with technical and non-technical audiences
  • Interests: Strong interest in social science research
  • Working Style: Capable of working with minimal supervision and a high level of initiative; practical approach to problem-solving; comfortable working both independently and collaboratively on client-facing projects

Desired Qualifications:
