Swayable predicts consumer opinion and the impact of content
Swayable is a fast-growing cloud analytics product that measures public opinion and the impact of messages and advertising content on it. Its 35-person team is backed by top technology and social impact investors, including Y Combinator. Founded in 2018 by two physics PhDs, it is led by the former Executive Director for Digital Strategy at the New York Times. Clients include major consumer-facing brands (Square, Paramount Pictures, Amazon), researchers (MIT, Yale, Stanford), and mission-aligned advocacy campaigns (including multiple Democratic Presidential candidates and winning Midterm campaigns).
Joining Swayable means being on a team whose work changes the course of history. The technology we develop is at the leading edge of transforming some of the world’s most important campaign organizations and enterprises: combatting disinformation, protecting democracy, and supporting the sustainable growth of consumer-facing brands.
This is a uniquely exciting opportunity to tackle critical unsolved problems in public opinion research and causal modeling. As a Research Data Scientist (reporting to the Director of Data Science), you’ll have the infrastructure and talent around you to turn results into new discoveries, prototypes and features that deliver insights to the world's most important organizations.
