Who we are:
BlueDot protects people around the world from infectious diseases using human and artificial intelligence. Our DaaS platform combines medical and public health expertise with advanced data analytics to track, contextualize, and mitigate infectious disease risks. Our global early warning system combines more than 100 datasets with proprietary algorithms to deliver critical insights on the spread of emerging and existing infectious diseases. BlueDot has had a profound impact on infectious disease response, including correctly predicting an outbreak of Zika in Florida, US six months in advance, alerting organizations of COVID-19 five days before the World Health Organization, and publishing one of the first peer-reviewed papers on COVID-19 which included correct predictions on which international cities would first receive infected travelers. Now, the need to better protect lives and livelihoods from infectious diseases is now as urgent for private sector leaders as it was for public officials. As we continue to expand our datasets and modeling to address the shifting global trends in infectious diseases, our team understands the complexity of the challenge in front of us — and that the importance of solving the problem has never been greater. At BlueDot, you’ll have the opportunity to help grow a solution to a global scale.
We are a Certified B Corp, have a Glassdoor rating of 4.5, are Diversio certified, Great Place to Work certified, a 2020 LinkedIn Top Start-Up and have been recognized as a Top 50 Best Place to Work in Canada, Best Place to Work for Women, Best in Technology, Best for Youth, and Best Start-Up!
