Are you interested in championing a product that makes work better? The science is clear: happier employees are more productive and stay at companies longer—everyone wins!

Who we are

We’re Humu — we build products based in behavioral science that help people grow and thrive at work. In short, we’re here to make work better.

Humu nudges people towards better ways of working, unlocking the potential of individuals, teams, and organizations. We enable companies to drive positive change by deploying personalized, scientifically-backed suggestions called nudges to employees. These nudges help people build better habits, work smarter and connect with their colleagues.

What you’ll get to work on

Humu’s Nudge Engine® deploys thousands of customized nudges—small, personal steps—throughout organizations to empower every employee, manager, team, and leader as a change agent. Over time, our nudges grow increasingly aware of the timing, messaging, and motivational techniques that inspire individual employees towards action.

The Details

We’re looking for a curious, passionate behavioral scientist who can bring their unique expertise to Humu and craft effective interventions that make work better by making people better at work.

As a member of our People Science team, you will:

  • Identify opportunities to build knowledge and techniques from behavioral science into the Humu platform
  • Collaborate cross functionally to design, implement, and iterate new product features and user experiences
  • Contribute to the Humu nudge library
  • Design experiments to understand and influence individual, team, and organizational outcomes
  • Inform our approach to capturing and interpreting new data signals that further optimize nudges and other behavioral interventions
  • Learn from and collaborate with other Behavioral Scientists, Data Analysts, and Data Scientists


  • Strong background in human behavior research
  • PhD, Masters, or equivalent expertise in a field that uses research and analytics to understand and influence human behavior (e.g., Behavioral Economics, Organizational Behavior, Social/Personality Psychology, Cognitive Neuroscience, Industrial/Organizational Psychology, etc.)
  • Proven ability to synthesize complex research findings, review with a critical eye, and communicate practical implications to non-technical audiences
  • Expertise in designing, implementing, and evaluating behavioral interventions in an applied setting
  • Deeply curious and creative when it comes to systems design: you can interpret the moving pieces in a complex system and identify high-impact opportunities for intervention (e.g., identifying elements of work that influence employees’ experiences and designing nudges to improve them)
  • Enthusiasm for finding innovative ways to apply research findings to complex, real-world contexts
  • Highly efficient: able to navigate ambiguity and solve problems in a fast-paced environment; able to make informed decisions on tight deadlines when needed
  • Strong cross-functional collaboration skills
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
