    Who We Are

    BlueDot is composed of an intentionally eclectic collective of scientists, mavericks, data geeks, design thinkers, and do-gooders united in a singular desire to outsmart infectious disease. In today’s highly connected world the global population has become increasingly vulnerable to infectious disease and the devastating impact of an outbreak.

    We generate cutting-edge data analysis, proprietary technology, and actionable knowledge in the service of preventing, detecting, and mitigating a number of today’s most pressing global health issues. Drawing from a range of expertise–epidemiology, medicine, ecology, mathematical modelling, geospatial analytics, data science & engineering, design, and development – BlueDot applies human and machine-driven analytics to big data, generates insights from it, and translates these insights into digestible products and services.

    Our HR strategy is very simple: encourage people who are passionate about making a difference in the world to join their unique skills and perspectives within a diverse team, where each member is working on the things they love to do. “Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.” (Albert Schweitzer) We are successful together by uniting our team members’ unique strengths and passions.

    Together we can create a healthier and safer world.

    BlueDot is venture funded by Horizons Ventures, which has a proven track record of early-stage investments in game-changing disruptive tech (Facebook, Skype, Waze, Siri, Spotify, and others).

    We're located at the beautiful Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute just a block away from Yonge and Dundas Square, right in the heart of downtown Toronto.

    BlueDot is a Certified B Corp, which means we are certified to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. We've also been recognized as a Best Place to Work for Women, and a top 25 Best Workplace in the country.
