Machine Learning Engineer

Most people would rather have a root canal than have to track down the best insurance plan to cover that root canal. That’s because the world of health insurance is byzantine and complicated and rarely puts the customer at the center of the process.  At Impact Health, we want to change that. Our mission is to make buying health insurance online simple and transparent. Our web platform uses data and predictive modeling to provide consumers with real costs and help them choose the right plan to fit their needs and save money--all in just 5 minutes.

Impact Health is a TECHSTARS NYC accelerator company where we strive to work as servant leaders, obsessively focused on our customers. Having a positive culture and challenging the norms to achieve that culture is part of what excites us. Our customers and our employees are our highest priority--without our team, we can’t keep growing and innovating.

So, what kinds of people make our team work? They share certain core strengths that capture our company values:

  • Judgment:  You identify root causes and make wise decisions despite ambiguity. You focus on what must be done well now, and differentiate what can be improved upon later.
  • Communication: You listen well without rushing to react. You are articulate and treat people with calm and respect, no matter their status or situation.
  • Impact: You focus on consistently and efficiently doing work that yields great results.
  • Curiosity: You seek to understand our strategy, market, and subscribers, and learn rapidly and eagerly.
  • Innovation: You challenge prevailing assumptions and suggest better approaches.
  • Courage: You take smart risks, make tough decisions, and question actions that conflict  with our values.
  • Passion: You care intensely about excellence and celebrate wins.
  • Honesty: You are candid, direct, and quick to admit mistakes.
  • Selflessness: You seek what is best for your colleagues and company.

If you see yourself here, we would love to get to know you better! We’re always looking for the next kickass person who could be a great fit for our rapidly growing team.
