    I have a data science and Psychology background, and I'm really interested in developing psychological instruments in the future. (ie like Pearson, MHS, etc) Does anybody here understand this industry and how one would get involved in such work?

    Generally folks develop a specialty in an area first through extensive published research in it.

    Pearson does hire people to work as research coordinators for certain instrument divisions, but usually they are looking for people with a neuro background who have done clinical work before, who also have a strong quant/research background.
