The Role

We are looking for a junior Data Scientist to join our Data Science Team, working within our Data and Research Function. You will be expected to work on specific data science projects that help Evergreen Life gain a deeper understanding of its data and inform decision-making. You will have the opportunity to develop machine learning models to classify, enrich and discover patterns in Personal Health Record (PHR) related data so we can provide insights and new product features for our users to improve their health and wellbeing.

You will work with open-source software, proposing, developing, and maintaining new solutions to enhance our data science offering to the organisation. You will join an interdisciplinary team of data scientists, analysts, engineers, product managers, qualitative researchers, and designers.

We all learn from each other and work together in supporting Evergreen Life’s vision: people will be empowered to increase their healthy and happy years by owning and sharing their health records.

Company Overview

Evergreen Life is on a mission to help people take control of their health, wellbeing and fitness with the Evergreen Life app. Evergreen Life’s Personal Health Record brings all of a person’s health information together in one place, supporting 'People Powered Health', giving patients access to electronic medical records, GP online services and much more.

We call it People Powered Health and we mean it. We are a team of motivated, innovative, and relatable individuals, wanting to change the healthcare world for good.

We’re putting the individual at the heart of healthcare so they can feel better informed and more in control of their health. It’s about people being in control of their health information and being able to share it with whomever they choose, in order to get the health and care they want.
