Mathematica is a nationally-recognized nonpartisan policy research organization that applies expertise at the intersection of data, methods, policy, and practice to improve well-being around the world. We collaborate closely with public- and private-sector partners to translate big questions into deep insights that improve programs, refine strategies, and enhance understanding. Our work yields actionable information to guide decisions in wide-ranging policy areas, from health, education, early childhood, and family support to nutrition, employment, disability, and international development. We improve public well-being by bringing the highest standards of quality, objectivity, and excellence to bear on the work we do for federal, state, and local government agencies, as well as private foundations.
Mathematica offers our employees competitive salaries, and a comprehensive benefits package, as well as the advantages of being 100 percent employee owned.
