Modea is a digital healthcare consultancy.
Job Description Who is Modea?

We are a technology consultancy with a mission to infuse greater control, transparency, and choice into the consumer healthcare experience. To do this, we work with large healthcare providers to help them build out a digital roadmap, then design and build mobile, web, and other digital experiences. We fundamentally believe that this work helps consumers have better information and access to care, and our clients to build stronger customer relationships.

Here are a few ways to get to know our work:
  • Check out the Vanderbilt Find a Doctor tool. Our analytics team helped guide the process for what to do. 
  • Read our Analytics guide and see some of our approach to digital analytics and the Google suite.
  • Find a location at Manatee Healthcare using this mobile app. We designed and built the feature set and user experience, and managed the measurement on the application.
  • Search for a doctor at the Carilion Clinic website. We helped them transform their site experience and digital tools like search and find-a-doc.

What does an Analyst do at Modea?

We tackle interesting projects on cross-functional teams made up of software engineers, analysts (that’s you!), designers, project managers, and strategists. These team members work very closely with each other and the client to help them make data driven decisions and design and build awesome, consumer-grade web and mobile experiences. We comb through all available data and establish ourselves as the expert on a project team to help clients make informed decisions.
We’re currently looking for a sharp analyst to 1) execute interesting client projects and 2) help us grow our data science practice at Modea. The right person for this role is well trained in data science and various analytical techniques, is naturally curious, and has a familiarity with web analytics and the language of the internet (funnels, conversions, clicks, etc.). This is a full-time position. Our office is working remotely currently and plans to continue at least into 2021, but ultimately, this position would be located at our headquarters in Blacksburg, VA.
Our business and team have consistently grown over the last four years and COVID-19 has dramatically increased the demand for our services. Our office is working remotely currently and plans to continue at least into 2021, but ultimately, this position would be located at our headquarters in Blacksburg, VA. Our location provides a unique blend of small town feel, proximity to a world-class university (Virginia Tech), and amazing access to outdoor experiences.
Here are a few specific things we’d be looking for you to do:
  • Lead on web analytics strategy: We do a lot of work on consumer-facing websites and apps. Part of your role would be to work with the visual design and engineering teams to set the measurement strategy for a particular site or application and ensure that the right goals and metrics are being tracked. This usually means working in Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager.
  • Provide decision support: It’s not enough to just “keep the lights on” for our clients. We’ll always want you to be analyzing the data we collect and looking for insights and trends that can inform our work or help our clients make better decisions. This will mean carving time out of your schedule to sit, analyze, and be thoughtful about the data and how it can best be visualized and interpreted. We often have to be flexible with our tools to meet client needs, whether that's open-source reporting platforms (Data Studio, Shiny) and Enterprise BI tools (Power BI, Domo, Tableau). Curiosity and a willingness to learn will take you a long way!
  • Unlock data science: Our clients look to us to help them wrangle and understand their data. More and more clients are asking us to help them with advanced marketing analytics solutions, beyond the traditional world of web analytics and into the world of big data and algorithmic approaches. We help our clients analyze their web traffic patterns for insight, identify distinct groups of consumers to optimize their user journey, and help our developers build out the most seamless and most effective personalization solutions.
Here is a list of skills and qualities that are critical to this role:
  • Be a great listener and communicator (oral and written)
  • Be naturally curious and love problem solving
  • Have experience with common statistical/analytical methods
  • Be familiar with R, SQL, or Python
  • Be pleasant to work with and a team player
  • Be familiar with and interested in web analytics tools like Google Analytics and Adobe Analytics
  • Have a college degree or a similar degree of life experience
  • Be passionate about analytics and measurement 
Additionally, here is a list of skills and qualities we’d like you to have: Here are a few other reasons why you should apply:
First, you’ll love the work we do and the people you’ll get to do it with. We’ve assembled an exceptionally smart and hardworking team and you’ll enjoy the work associations and general camaraderie with other “Modeans.” We also work with great clients who value us and our contributions.

Second, Modea offers a great benefits package that provides both a fun and enjoyable workplace and great perks that will improve your quality of life:
  • Flexible paid time off
  • Modern, open plan office
  • Fully stocked kitchen
  • Team lunches
  • Regular employee events (parties, community service, etc.)
  • Discounted gym membership
  • Paid downtown parking
  • Generous health, dental, and vision insurance
  • 401k with fully vested company matching
  • Long term & short term disability

Some of these benefits, like parties and snacks, have had to adapt to the remote work environment we are currently in, but our operations team has found innovative ways to support our team, from regular care packages to a work-from-home stipend. We take care of our team.
The working environment here at Modea is one of accountability and autonomy. We are working to solve big problems. So we expect a lot, but give team members the tools, freedom, and flexibility to come up with great solutions. Together, our team is developing world-class technology that will change the way healthcare is delivered.
