Our Mission

To power critical decisions in healthcare with data science-driven technology.

The Company

Welcome to Aetion! Since our debut in 2013, we have grown into one of the country’s leading science-driven technology companies using real-world evidence to provide innovative healthcare solutions.

We achieve this with our Aetion Evidence Platform, a software platform used to evaluate the safety, effectiveness and value of medications, delivering better outcomes to patients, medical professionals and clients.  We’ve partnered with top biopharma companies and are backed by leading venture capital firms to help increase our medical research and expand our product line.

To continue our mission to transform healthcare, we’re assembling a team of talented individuals who know how to work collaboratively and authentically, to innovate and think transformation, not status quo. 

If that’s you, we’d love to hear from you.


Aetion, a science-driven healthcare analytics company, is looking for a scientific professional to join our dynamic Science team.

You will help team members with the development and maintenance of internal and client-facing resources for clients’ adoption and use of the AEP. You will also drive the development and maintenance of Aetion’s scientific assets, such as study templates and a definition library of clinical conditions.

  • Lead, with input from senior team members, client help tickets and requests regarding the AEP.
  • Contribute to the development and maintenance of internal and client-facing resources for customers’ adoption and use of the AEP, such as use-case-driven platform demonstrations, data dictionaries and other key materials including documentation and knowledge base articles.
  • Drive the development and maintenance of Aetion’s scientific assets such as study templates, definition library of clinical conditions, and other deployable scientific components.
  • Higher levels of seniority will also include additional responsibilities in leadership, process development, team mentoring, and recruiting.
  • Title to be determined by education, experience and other qualifications.

  • Strong ability to self-motivate and manage conflicting priorities in a fast-paced environment.
