Data Scientist

Find trends in huge datasets for fun and profit.

We live off of making sense of the data we consume. We're looking for someone who's not only well versed in statistics but also capable of implementing algorithms and putting them into production. Our ideal data scientist holds a scrappy, Macgyver-like attitude and is wary of ivory towers. Understanding the basics like Naive Bayes is a start, but you'll win our hearts over if you've shipped your own spam filter or created a usable product based around machine learning. If you love theory but prefer to put things into practice, let's talk!
