  • Other desirable skills include:
  • knowledge and experience in any other software technologies.  
  • 2+ years of post academic experience

Here’s what you’ll do: There's no typical day or engagement for our Data Scientist!

  • Create advanced analytics models using statistical and machine learning methods.
  • Work with software developers and solutions designers to deliver analytics driven solutions.
  • Interact with clients in a variety of domains, solving a spectrum of challenging problems.
  • Strong stakeholder management and interaction experience at different levels

  • Think through hard problems, and work with a team to make them reality.
  • Learn something new every day.
  • Work in a dynamic, collaborative, transparent, non-hierarchical, and ego-free culture where your talent is valued over a role title
  • Travel the world.
  • Speak at conferences.
  • Write blogs and books.
  • Develop your career outside of the confines of a traditional career path by focusing on what you’re passionate about rather than a predetermined one-size-fits-all plan
  • Be part of a company with social and economic justice at the heart of its mission.
