We’re looking for a data-savvy individual to join our team as a data scientist, to create consumer and nonprofit focused research content, support user-centric product development and growth based on our real-time feed of nonprofit donations and interactive search results. You will also be in charge of creating a database to manage this data.

You may be a great fit for our team if you are excited about exploring huge (and sometimes messy) data sets and finding effective ways to simplify and communicate the results to a non-technical audience. Having nonprofit experience or a passion for impact is a bonus!

  • Experience with multiple database technologies is preferred. 
  • Experience doing research in any scientific field is a plus. 
  • We value correctness, maintainability, elegance, and testability of code. We want to do things the right way over just getting things “done.” We’re strict about our code style and quality so that you don’t have to spend your time tracking down other peoples’ bugs. 
  • * Knowledge of quantitative finance is a huge plus – but in no way a requirement.

 

Responsibilities:

  •  We’re exploring ideas from across computer science and statistics, including supervised learning, imbalanced data and anomaly detection, and ensemble learning deep learning. 
  • You’ll develop and implement solutions for real-world, large-scale machine learning/statistical problems. 
  • You’ll build and maintain our data pipeline, help perform hypothesis testing, back testing, model validation, and data visualization systems.

  • A culture that works hard but has fun 
  • An agile company with flat hierarchy where the contributions of each employee are recognized and appreciated 
  • A support system of advisors to help you increase your skills 
  • A network of contacts and friends who can help you find solutions
