[Open] Senior Researcher

About Sensata

Sensata is a startup focused on developing digital products aimed at understanding and measuring human behavior. Our biggest innovation lies on the intersection between digital technologies, a strong user experience, and the latest from the social sciences. We have developed a platform to collect self-reported data in a way that is closer to a gaming experience than a traditional survey. Our platform is enabling organizations, governments and private companies to understand the “why” behind their users' behavior.

At Sensata, we believe that research can be fun and agile, robust from a methodological point of view but also insightful and relevant for both the end user and the customer. To achieve that, we are building an interdisciplinary team that combines data science, social sciences, engineering, and a lot of creativity.
