Senior Data Scientist The Position

We are seeking a data scientist to participate as a key team member in envisioning, designing, coding, testing and improving the algorithms that are central to our mission as a company.

Some key challenges will include:

-Identifying external datasets and developing API or other methods for accessing them
-Fluidly self-educating on existing methods for modeling end-user behavior in a variety of contexts, or developing new methods for doing this when necessary
-Designing experiments to answer targeted questions
-Teaming with developers to embed algorithms in applications
-Understanding business economics, user motivation and other contextual information in order to guide analytical trade-offs, with a focus on "minimum viable algorithm" followed by intensive, iterative improvement

Senior Data Scientist The Successful Candidate

A successful candidate will be comfortable in a fluid, entrepreneurial environment, but one that is focused on developing reusable software applications, not bespoke analytical solutions.
He or she will likely have many of the following characteristics:
-8+ years professional experience using statistical software (R, S-Plus, SAS, or similar), relational and NoSQL databases and scripting languages (such as Python). Ideally, R and Python
-Familiar with general-purpose machine learning methods, such as neural networks, Bayesian networks, regression, decision trees and so on. Capable of self-teaching new algorithmic methods easily
-Passionate about using data to drive strategy and business recommendations.
-Well-rounded top performer who is able to "crunch the numbers" one minute, and critically think through strategic issues the next
-Self-starter with a high degree of rigor, organization, and discipline to get things done
-Able to communicate as effectively in delivering complex data-driven findings with businesspeople, as in discussing machine-learning specifications with engineer

Senior Data Scientist Academic Qualifications
-Very strong math, physics, CS or similar degree from a leading program
-Extremely high SAT or similar standardized test scores
