Senior Scientist - Epidemiology

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.
