HIRING: Business Development Intern

OUR TEAM

Marinus Analytics is a woman-owned social impact SaaS company founded in 2014 out of The Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. We investigate how Artificial Intelligence (AI) can turn big data online into actionable intelligence. The AI solutions we deploy help law enforcement, government, and the private sector identify and combat human trafficking—and empower government social services agencies to better serve their communities. Our solutions empower data-driven, people-centric responses in the modern age.

We are a lively team working out of the North Side of Pittsburgh. Although we are extremely passionate about socially impactful work, we also enjoy the occasional happy hour with the team and our collaborators.
