RIPL is a non-profit tech-for-social impact organization. We help government solve some of society’s most pressing challenges using data, science, and scalable, sustainable technology. Our work has supported data-driven policy improvements in health care, education, social insurance, civic participation, workforce development, and criminal justice.
In the early days of COVID-19, we partnered with Rhode Island to build a cloud-based Pandemic Unemployment Assistance system in just 10 days, making Rhode Island the first state in the nation to pay CARES act benefits to workers and families in need, and helping over 70,000 RI workers receive their unemployment benefits.
We are now focusing on supporting jobseekers to find lasting and successful careers coming out of the pandemic through innovative, cloud-based, administrative data-driven ML/AI solution that helps unemployed and displaced workers across the country discover new careers and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. We are partnering with state governments across the country to expand our pilot approach and are building out a product team to support scaling our solution.
We are a highly collaborative team and all RIPL team members work cross-functionally. All RIPL team members develop a solid understanding of the power of scientific-grade research, how to productionize science for lasting impact, and how to navigate government partnerships to build lasting capacity for data-driven policy and service delivery improvement. Our staff are located all over the country, but stay connected with online chat, regular coffee hours and in-person time when travel is possible.
While we move fast, we value quality over quantity, we believe both government partners and American residents deserve our commitment and best service, and we know that changing culture and systems takes concerted effort, time, and thoughtfulness. We are committed for the long-term. Learn more about our leadership principles here: https://www.ripl.org/leadership-attributes/
