We create technology, with heart, for the health of every person in the world.
Buoy builds a digital health tool that helps people – from the moment they get sick – start their health care on the right foot. Started by a team of doctors and computer scientists working at the Harvard Innovation Laboratory in Boston MA, Buoy was developed in direct response to the downward spiral we’ve all faced when we attempt to self-diagnose our symptoms online. Buoy leverages artificial intelligence – powered by advanced machine learning and proprietary granular data - to resemble an exchange you would have with your favorite doctor – to provide consumers with a real-time, accurate analysis of their symptoms and help them easily and quickly embark on the right path to getting better. Buoy is based in Boston and was founded in 2014.
Buoy is taking on the multi-faceted challenge of applying Artificial Intelligence to fix the front door of health care and empower patients to make better health care decisions. Through the process of helping users learn more about their symptoms on the Buoy Health website, we collect a variety of data from tens of thousands of users every day. We are looking for a candidate who can help us organize, collect, store, and provide value to people with this data. Buoy is rapidly expanding the number of people that use such data to make decisions every day and we need someone who can support those efforts. A successful candidate will make an impact by raising efficiency across the team and making the process of turning data into useful information seamless and effective.
