Data and Machine Learning
Lyra is transforming mental health care by creating a frictionless experience for members, providers, and employers. We connect companies and their employees to mental health providers, therapy, and coaching programs that work, and we believe that data-driven technology is a critical part of solving the thorny, complex challenges of a broken system.

As a data scientist focused on product analytics, you will work closely with Lyra’s product team to understand the journey that our members take when entering care. We will look to you to discover actionable insights about our members’ behavior, informing both tactical and strategic product decisions. Your efforts will support the optimization of our members’ care journey through iteration, experimentation, and validation.
