Remote Job Description

Quants at Clipboard Health develop, deploy, and monitor mathematical algorithms to clear per-diem transactions across labor markets. They are independent thinkers who can innovate rapidly in a domain with virtually no pre-existing literature.

This is a high ownership role, where contributors own pricing problems all on their own. They're expected to find clues, design solutions, run experiments, and deploy successful strategies to the entire marketplace at an extremely fast pace (every 1-2 weeks). Quants also talk to customers, write a lot to keep the organization updated on their thinking, and participate in weekly meetings where they report on the progress of their initiatives (in writing).

What is the Pricing Team?

The Pricing Team is a new team at Clipboard Health that builds real-time, automated systems to price (and reprice) each shift in the marketplace to reflect the evolving dynamic between labor supply and demand.
