A Dream Job for Data Scientists – Apply Now!

The Digital Health team at IntraHealth International is growing! We’re now hiring our third new team member in six months.

We’re Hiring a Senior Data Scientist

Do you love Python or R? Does a NoSQL database excite you? Can you make Apache Superset or Tableau dance with data?

Want to apply your skills on problems that matter? With funding and freedom to follow the data? Ready to lead in data science?

Then I have a dream job for you!

We’re looking for a Senior Data Scientist who will work with IntraHealth staff and partners to leverage the power of data to find solutions to global health problems. This includes:

  • Data life cycle management: problem scoping, goal definition, data evaluation, and visualized insights.
  • Data experimentation: uncover new sources of data and find compelling data relationships not seen before
  • Thought leadership: communicate the power of our data science projects through peer education and public outreach

You will also have the opportunity to build out a new service line for IntraHealth, that will start with its own dedicated funding and have the potential for rapid growth serving our internal and external clients.

Best of all, you will get to work with our fun, creative, and passionate digital health team at the forefront of using information and communication technology to improve health outcomes around the world.

We have headquarters in Chapel Hill, NC, and Washington, DC, and welcome qualified applicants that can work in the USA or any country around the world where we are registered.

What are you waiting for? Apply today!

IntraHealth is an Awesome Company

I’ve just passed my two-year anniversary here, and I’ve found it an awesome place to work. Like other international development organizations, we are focused on the mission, with good work-life balance.

However, we’re also small enough to feel like family and still large enough to work on a variety of amazing programs. We’re also going through refreshing changes that come with strong wins and crazy growth.

Chapel Hill, NC and Washington, DC

For the US-based positions, you often have the choice between working from our Chapel Hill, NC, or Washington, DC, offices, or even remotely from wherever you live.

After 20 years in Washington, DC, I am really loving living in North Carolina. Compared to DC, this is a surprisingly affordable oasis for families used to big city prices and issues.

So do your friends and me a favor – send them this email so they too can work at IntraHealth.

ict4d human resources screening


Recently, a job-hunting friend of mine asked me to review their CV. I flat out refused. Are you surprised?

You might be, as that’s where most people start their job search – stressing over their resume. I refused my friend’s request, not because I didn’t like them or didn’t want to help, but I didn’t want to waste either of our time.

The Resume is Obsolete

If you are working on your resume, you are thinking responding to a job ad with a cover letter and a resume is going to win you a job. It will not.

Now, there is always an exception – and a broken clock is still right twice a day – but that’s not the efficient way to get a new job.

Any job ad, including those in this email, will solicit 100+ resumes. The HR team is going to have a streamlined approach to save the sanity of their recruiters. Generally, a software system will cull out most of the CVs, humans will cull out more, and there will be 3-4 that get to the interview stage.

Focus on What Matters: Networking

Of those 3-4 people who get interviewed, its always 2-3 or even all 4, that are already known in some way to the hiring team. They’re ex-colleagues, friends, friends of friends, and all the other human connections possible.

Only the rare applicant will be truly there because of their CV. Don’t bet that’s going to be you.

Instead, focus on what matters – networking. Yes, the hard, yet exceptionally practical process of getting to know who is working where and what they are looking for in a colleague. Be that potential colleague – network, network, network.

Good luck!
