Taxonomist, Healthify (Temp) (NY)

Taxonomist (Contract)

New York, United States · Resource Network


Healthify is looking for a contract Taxonomist to help build, implement, and manage its taxonomy. This is an opportunity for a Taxonomist with some teaching or mentorship experience to educate its team on the basics of researching, prototyping, and continuously refining a taxonomy. The ideal candidate for this position is able to work six days across two weeks from its New York City office.

About Us

At Healthify we're fundamentally rethinking how healthcare organizations and communities work together to connect struggling populations to social services.

Our founding team of technologists and social workers came from a background of working with vulnerable patients in Baltimore hospitals. They saw how social needs - like access to food and housing - dramatically impacted healthcare outcomes and costs, and were driven to create Healthify with the mission of building a world where no one’s health is hindered by their need. Our products are now used by some of the country’s largest healthcare organizations.

Since our founding, we’ve been backed by impact investors and VCs - from Kapor Capital to Primary Venture Partners - and we’ve built a team that’s both diverse and mission driven. We enjoy meeting people who share in our commitment to agility, cultivating a thoughtful and safe work environment, and who are results focused. Individuals from marginalized and underrepresented communities are highly encouraged to get in touch.

About the Role
The Taxonomist will:
  • Research (including user interviews), analyze, and design systems that address customer needs and concerns
  • Work with stakeholders so they better understand the taxonomy process, workflows, and implementation frameworks
  • Work with our team to create, implement, and manage taxonomies, clear term definitions, and relationships
  • Make suggestions for improvement using inputs from various search, knowledge base and application use reports
  • Recommend new technologies that may enhance taxonomy management capabilities
  • Deliver documentation on the development and use of taxonomies and related tools


About You
  • Documented professional experience building and managing taxonomies
  • Previous experience mentoring and/or teaching others the basics of researching and designing taxonomies
  • Comfortable conducting user interviews
