Data science is a burgeoning field as more information becomes trackable and analyzable in the age of Big Data. Many of our business partners actively use data and analytics to track their growth, sales, and marketing, but some focus entirely on providing analytics for others.
Innovu is a Pittsburgh-based (headquartered in Station Square, pictured above) healthcare data analytics company experiencing intense growth this year. Going from ~35 – 70 employees, the executive team at Innovu needs ambitious, excited young people with an interest and some skills in statistics and data science to aid in their growth. They’re excited to partner with Praxis to provide the best opportunity to a young person looking to jump headfirst into the world of data science, statistics, and analytics.
The selected participant will have the opportunity to work in the analytics team and work closely with the Chief Analytics Officer and the founding team. This participant will be on the bleeding edge of data science technology and will get to experience what it is really like to be on a high-growth startup team as Innovu undergoes its biggest period of growth yet.
The ideal candidate should have the following traits or characteristics:
- Technical familiarity with databases
- Familiarity with SQL a major bonus
- Familiarity with computational statistics software such as R, MatLab, Satistica, etc. or exceptional Excel skills
- Self-motivated to learn and innovative; adept at understanding, articulating, and incorporating new technologies and corresponding value propositions
- Good verbal and written communication
- Excited about making data more understandable and accessible and can imagine a future in analytics and data science work
Location: Pittsburgh, PA
Timeline: Summer 2016 – Spring 2017 (Apply for early-summer classes)
This is a unique position — the ideal participant should be somebody excited about data science but who doesn’t just want to settle for doing calculations or running programs for a company where they’d feel like a cog in a machine. This is a quickly-growing team and needs a high caliber candidate.
If you think you’re that candidate, apply today.

PRAXIS EDUCATION EXPERIENCE
The Praxis Education Experience is built around outcomes, not just activities. Participants create tangible results through projects and tailored learning plans. The program delves into everything from digital skills and professional proficiencies to core concepts in philosophy, history, economics, technology, and business. While the business experience takes place onsite, the education component is done remotely through an online portal and interactive communication.
The participant is in control of this experience. With the assistance and coaching of Praxis advisors, participants create a professional development course to accelerate their growth. Between access to a world-class curriculum library, connections with entrepreneurs and intellectuals, and all the resources of the Praxis network, the education experience can’t be beat by sitting in a classroom. Learn more about the Praxis Education Experience.
A Look At Your Praxis Advisors:
Meet T.K. – T.K. Coleman is an entrepreneur, writer, public speaker, philosopher, and the Education Director at Praxis. Participants will work with T.K. throughout the program to complete personal development plans, grow professionally, and become more valuable, more marketable individuals.
