    • Communication skills - you’ll need to be able to be conversant in complex concepts to both novices and experts
    • High motor - Biobot is a fast paced organization and we’ll be constantly striving to improve our processes
    • Desire to learn - While we don’t expect you already be an expert in wastewater epidemiology, you’ll need to learn the language to succeed in this role
    • Drive to Achieve - Our goal is to make every touchpoint a positive experience for our customers and strive for high marks on our KPI measurements

About Biobot Analytics

Our mission is to transform wastewater infrastructure into public health observatories. 

Biobot Analytics is a wastewater epidemiology company and uses technology developed at MIT to measure human health in sewage (based on what is excreted in urine and stool) to understand population health in cities. We first launched an opioid product to support government and public health officials in responding to the opioid epidemic, and have recently launched a Covid19 product to estimate the scope of the outbreak in communities. We are operating in almost 400 communities across 42 states, and generating Covid19 case estimates for over 10% of the U.S. population.

Inspired by the potential of wastewater epidemiology, we are the first company in the world to bring wastewater epidemiology to market. We are VC backed by top investors including The Engine, DCVC, Y Combinator and Homebrew.

Battling the drug epidemic and now the Covid19 outbreak is just the beginning - we’re transforming sewage into a data asset and building a public health database. Eventually, Biobot will be an early warning system for disease, a map of nutrition disparities, and more. Headquartered in the Boston area with an office in NYC, we aim to create the bedrock of human health infrastructure and smart cities in countries across all six continents.
