WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR:
  • Impact – You’re deeply mission-driven and you think there’s more to life than software that enables puppy ears to be superimposed on photos. Although we concede those are cute.
  • Data Science – You have experience developing production software involving building data models for consumer or industrial applications. You are familiar with robust and scalable infrastructure for visualization and presentation.
  • Product passion – You care about the bits you ship ending up in users’ hands, and work backwards from user needs to come up with solutions to problems.
  • Entrepreneurship – You’re a self-starter who loves to own things end-to-end. You don’t ask for permission – you’re too busy making things happen.
  • Team player – You know how to make those around you better and feed off their energy. You take care of your teammates.
  • Curiosity – You like to prototype mobile apps based on the latest psychological research in habit formation in your free time? You open sourced your own neural network library? Boy have we got some fun things for you…
  • You have a BS, MS or PhD in computer science or a related field with focus on data science or machine learning.
