Senior Data Scientist

Tel Aviv, Israel

About the company:

Assured Allies’ mission is to make aging sustainable. We empower older adults to live happier, healthier, and more independently at home, while reducing the financial burden associated with aging. As the first step in our journey, we are working with long term care insurance (ביטוח סיעודי) companies, building new solutions for this huge but struggling market. We use advanced statistical and machine learning algorithms, unique data collection methods and personalized, evidence-based clinical interventions. One of our products – the Age Assured program, which identifies near-future risks to policyholders and introduces customized interventions to mitigate them – is already live, while the construction and marketing of other products are well underway. We have raised a series A, and have offices in Tel Aviv and Boston, MA.
It takes a world-class team to achieve an ambitious goal like ours. To do this, we aim to bring smart and curious people from a range of professional backgrounds, all connected by a shared dedication to our mission. Are you ready to join us?

About the role:

Research, and data science specifically, is at the core of our company’s identity and day-to-day operations. You will work on a truly diverse set of problems, in a field where very little data science has been done up to date. Some projects will be centered around a POC; in others you will find business opportunities in the data, or research aging for future initiatives, working side by side with your colleagues; other projects still will require deep statistical understanding and mathematical skills. In a space very different from most start-ups, you will quickly learn a lot of domain knowledge necessary to do your job well, and will have many different types of data to prove that.

A bit about us: Assured Allies is tackling one of society’s largest emerging problems: the financial strain placed on families and the economy as a result of the rapidly aging population. As the first step in our journey, we are working with long term care insurance companies, to help aging adults live happily and independently at home. Using the power of predictive algorithms and cutting-edge preventive medical interventions, we provide these policyholders with appropriate case management, caregiving, and lifestyle support services which will reduce or delay their need for acute outside assistance.
