We are a team on a mission, to put accessible and affordable healthcare in the hands of every person on earth. Our mission is bold and ambitious, and it’s one that’s shared by our team who shares our values, to dream big, build fast and be brilliant. To achieve this, we’ve brought together one of the largest teams of scientists, clinicians, mathematicians and engineers to focus on combining the ever-growing computing power of machines, with the best medical expertise of humans, to create a comprehensive, immediate and personalized health service and make it universally available. At Babylon our people aren’t just part of a team, they’re part of something bigger. We’re a vibrant community of creative thinkers and doers, forging the way for a new generation of healthcare. We’re only as good as our people. So, finding the best people is everything to us. We serve millions, but we choose our people one at a time… Epidemiologists are expected to provide the best methodological approaches to the daily research questions, which demands a deep knowledge on predictive and preventive medicine concepts as well as relevant patient outcomes research experience.  We have a real-world approach to health, and we believe that technology is fundamental to achieve our mission.  Epidemiologists at Babylon are collaborating with doctors and research scientists in order to build products which will provide the most accurate, reliable and personalised healthcare to everyone.
