We are looking for an applied and creative Data Scientist, to join us as part of the development team. As part of the team you will shape the project, contribute your opinions, ideas and learnings, and see the results of your work. Moreover, you’ll grow to be a leading expert on applying NLP and ML for understanding social issues, and we want to give you a role where you can shine.

Your role will be discovering and bringing the best of state-of-the-art methods, and tinkering with them to improve our product. You’ll be part of a great and growing team of data scientists, working closely with product, UX/UI, and the development team, to make sure that your ideas get translated into improvements that our users love. 

Responsibilities:

  • Discovering new libraries and tools that can add value to our product.
  • Experimenting with several approaches to validate which new approaches we should include in the product.
  • Collaborating in product definition to select the best options for new features.
  • Developing new methods, or testing adjustments to our algorithms, to make our users’ lives easy for them to make sense of their data.
  • What you won’t be doing: cleaning and preparing datasets, because those steps are automated by Citibeats.

Requirements:

  • Computer Science degree, Mathematics degree or Data Science Masters.
  • At least 2-3 years’ experience in a similar area.
  • Knowledge of the latest in NLP, ML and/or deep learning.
  • Experience with common Python data science toolkits, such as Pandas, NumPy, SciPy, etc. Excellence in at least one of these is highly desirable.

  • Good applied statistics skills, such as distributions, statistical testing, regression, etc.
  • Good scripting and programming skills.
  • Creative/entrepreneurial/hacker mindset - meaning you like to tinker, push ideas forward and make things happen.
  • User-centric - you can start with a user need or problem, and figure out how to translate it and solve it with data science.
  • You love to learn, and would like to set clear plans for personal growth.
  • Nice to have:
  • An interest in linguistics, or languages, is very welcome!
