Our mission is to make the best mental health tools radically accessible for everyone.

We are pioneers in building personalized digital mental health tools to help millions of people with mental health difficulties. 

Our tools are powered by the latest research in NLP and ML, use scientifically proven techniques from Cognitive Behavior Therapy, and are based on 10 years of intervention science at Stanford University. Our founder has an international reputation in Digital Mental Health intervention development.  Our Chairman is Andrew Ng; and Dan Jurafsky is a member of our advisory board, both globally recognized leaders in AI/NLP.

There has never been a better time to use your data science skills for good. Given the recent acceleration in infrastructure to allow for the meaningful adoption of digital therapeutics, our strong product reputation, and existing relationships within health systems, Woebot is in a period of explosive growth. 

We are looking for product-minded Senior Data Scientists to use their expertise to enhance our understanding of the conversations Woebot has and deepen the intelligence, sophistication and personalization of those conversations.

What you will do:

As a member of the growing Data Science team, you will work cross-departmentally with clinical and engineering team members, notably with our Machine Learning Engineering team, to help translate your expertise into sophisticated conversation advances, impactful personalization features and intelligence in service of improved user experience and mental health outcomes.

NLP & Conversation AI

We are constantly looking to improve and evolve Woebot’s conversational capabilities while taking into account the current conversational context and the mental health journey of users.

  • Model conversations and develop metrics and insights to help us understand shortcomings and opportunities for improvement.
  • Investigate the mediating effect of tunable conversational features such as tone, verbosity, humour and empathy in conversation performance

Personalization 

We consider personalization to be key for developing a relationship over time, and delivering adaptive interventions to ensure Woebot thoughtfully delivers the right content, at the right time for every user.

  • Improve user profile metadata, both collected and inferred, to improve conversation capabilities and conversation parameterization. 
  • Design & analyze experiments determining the most efficacious approaches in personalized content delivery for users within and across sessions
  • Collaborate with Product & Design teams to deliver datasets, models and heuristics to power personalization of existing and new features

Engagement Analytics  

Through our consumer application and ongoing clinical studies, we are generating important datasets that allow us to investigate some of the most pressing questions in digital mental health around engagement, dose and treatment outcomes.

  • Perform exploratory analyses to generate actionable insights across our large scale datasets in both controlled studies, consumer usage datasets and a/b experiments.
  • Deepen the quality and depth of research conducted across Woebot by using data to help shape and guide our study pipeline and quantitative methodologies.
