About the Behavioral Insights Team
The Behavioral Insights Team (BIT) is a leading social impact consulting organization bringing evidence-based policy making to governments and nonprofits across the world. We believe that if you understand how people make decisions in the real world, you can design and deliver better policies and services.
This belief means that we draw on the lessons from the behavioral sciences to design creative and scalable solutions in fields ranging from health to criminal justice to humanitarian response. We are also committed to using and generating evidence, so we test our interventions using techniques like randomized controlled trials (RCTs) before they are scaled. We have run around 400 RCTs to date. For some of our recent projects, please see our blog.
BIT was created inside the UK government in 2010 as the first government organization dedicated to applying behavioral science to policy and programs. Indeed, we created the term “behavioral insights.” We became a separate social purpose corporation in 2014; we opened our North America office in 2015, and work in a fast-paced and collaborative environment in Brooklyn, NY. We are a growing team where new opportunities are emerging regularly.
We’re always searching for awesome people to join our team! If you’re interested in BIT but don’t see the position you’re looking for, submit your resume here and share how you’re interested in working with us. We’ll be sure to reach out when new positions open up!
