The Opportunity

Livongo is the leading Applied Health Signals company, partnering with over 800 clients to serve more than 250,000 members. One of Livongo’s unique strengths is the suite of tools that enable our members to monitor not only their behaviors, but also their bodies -- for example, their blood glucose, blood pressure, and weight. These data streams provide vital clues into where each member is on their journey towards living a healthier and happier life -- and how Livongo can best provide support and guidance in an adaptive, just-in-time fashion.


This role is focused specifically on furthering Livongo’s ability to do more with our devices and their data streams, including:

  • Diving in deeply to wrangle, tame, and extract insights from the full spectrum of Livongo monitoring devices.
  • Improving the quality of the data streams themselves, by developing algorithms and models for anomaly detection and time-series interpolation. 
  • Working with Data Engineering to ensure that transformations of raw device signals are captured in our data warehouse.
  • Partnering with the Clinical Research and Coaching teams to develop new ways of visualizing relationships between data streams in ways that are accessible and insightful to our members.Appraising published algorithms and developing novel models that use device metrics to predict gold-standard clinical outcomes.
  • Providing Data Science support on Livongo-led pilot studies investigating novel monitoring devices, and how they can be used optimally within the Livongo program.
  • Collaborating closely with cross-functional stakeholders to help scope and solve problems they face, and providing them with informed and practical recommendations.

Candidate Profile

What you bring

  • 2+ years experience working in Data Science at a SaaS or consumer-facing company, or in an academic/clinical setting (e.g., MS, MPH, PhD).

  • A solid understanding of statistical inference and machine learning concepts/techniques, with experience in applying those concepts to solve business problems.
  • Strong SQL and Python skills.

  • A compelling ability to tell stories with data.
  • A pragmatic ability to balance prototyping with incremental cleanup and refactoring along the way.

Who you are

  • Self-driven and intellectually curious, with a proven track record using statistics and machine learning to solve challenging problems.
  • An active listener who can “read between the lines” to infer product needs and underlying context.
  • A strong team player, willing and able to share knowledge with a wider audience.
  • An open and kind individual seeking to be part of a high-performing, caring team.
