About the role

We’re on a mission to make behavioral health more available and accessible. We're backed by a16z, YCombinator, Craft, and many others to make this dream a reality.

--

Building an inclusive culture is one of our core tenets as a company. We’re very aware of the structural inequalities that exist, and recognize that underrepresented minorities are less likely to apply for a role if they don’t think they meet all of the requirements. If that’s you and you’re reading this, we’d like to encourage you to apply regardless — we’d love to get to know you and see if there’s a place for you here!

About Our Mission

At Juniper, we're building software for behavioral health clinicians to improve quality of care. We streamline and replace manual efforts so clinicians can focus on what they do best: providing high-quality care.

We started Juniper because we care about impact — the lack of supply for behavioral healthcare means those who need it most cannot access it. We believe this is one of the biggest problems out there today. It’s why we’re tackling this broken industry, and why we want you on this mission with us.

About The Role

Your North Star: making Juniper a truly data driven organization

Juniper is looking to bring on our first data scientist. Juniper sits on 90,000+ patients worth of data, but today that data is underutilized. As the first member of our data team, you will help structure our data to help generate meaningful insights that drive our business decisions, as well as directly improve our product and help behavioral health clinics grow faster.

What you’ll do:

  • Become Juniper’s internal expert on our data, helping define what Juniper’s critical metrics are and driving alignment across the organization as to what those metrics mean
  • Derive insights from our data around how to improve our insurance interactions, and drive those insights to impact, whether that be improving data quality or working with other teams to enhance our product
  • Build trust in our data and create a data driven culture, such that internal team members regular turn to analytics first when making decisions
  • Help each function define, create, and maintain their first set of dashboards, and drive adoption by encouraging regular dashboard reviews
  • Create tools to help internal team members interact with data themselves
  • Identify further use cases for data across the organization (e.g., working with finance around operational metrics, helping inform the OKR process)

What we're looking for:

  • Someone who loves working in ambiguous situation, and can drive to clarity despite data quality issues
  • Passion for improving lives through behavioral health
  • 5+ years professional experience in data analysis, data science, and data engineering involving SQL, with a particular focus on modelling data effectively
  • Proficiency in a programming language (e.g., Python)
  • Knowledge on data visualization tools (like Looker or Sigma Computing), and how to pick the right tool for the job
  • Willingness to build trust with our operations and engineering teams by quickly creating alignment and demonstrating competency: the team should feel daily that you’re making their jobs easier better through data

Juniper is based in New York City with a satellite office in San Francisco, and we prioritize in-person and hybrid candidates. Please refer to the top of this page for this position's hiring location.

About Juniper

We’re on a mission to make behavioral health more available and accessible. We're backed by YCombinator, Craft, Zigg, and many others to make this dream a reality.

At Juniper, we build software for behavioral health clinicians to improve quality of care. We streamline and replace manual efforts so clinicians can focus on what they do best: providing high-quality care.

Behavioral health is broken. We think this is a problem worth solving, and we think we know how to solve it. Interested? Check out https://jobs.lever.co/juniperplatform.

We’re deeply rooted in the intersection of healthcare and technology — the founders were previously healthcare consultants (at McKinsey) and all have technical backgrounds.

The engineering team brings a breadth of experience (AWS, Bloomberg, Palantir, Headway). Our head of engineering previously led a team of 10 at AWS and is invested in building a first-class team of engineers with a focus on developing a diverse, inclusive, and supportive culture.

We started Juniper because we care about impact — the lack of supply for behavioral healthcare means those who need it most cannot access it. We see this as a once in a lifetime opportunity to fix a broken industry, and why we want you on this journey with us.
