Grow Progress is hiring a Data Scientist to be part of a team that is building cutting-edge persuasion technology for social good.


We’re looking for someone who wants to help pioneer a new approach to persuasion: giving our customers the power to persuade more people based on how they think — not just how they look.


If you want to make a big social impact and grow your skill set by building products from the ground up, we hope you’ll apply.

Who We Are

  • Grow Progress gives our customers the power to persuade more people by tailoring their messages to match each audience member’s identity. We help customers harness the latest persuasion science to create messaging that’s typically 200% to 500% more effective than their existing ads. We do this by predicting which personality traits and values are most important to each individual based on their digital footprints.

  • We’re deploying these tools to super-charge campaigns, causes, and companies that make the world a better place. We currently work with many of the biggest Democratic pollsters, marketing agencies, advocacy groups, and labor unions in the country.

  • We’re a team of experienced campaigners, data scientists, and engineers who are obsessed with harnessing the power of evidence to make social good advocates more effective.

  • We’re ambitious, efficient, low-ego, and we like to make each other laugh.


Why You Should Join

  • Our culture is fun, fast-paced, and focused on evidence. We encourage everyone to feel comfortable contributing ideas — even if it’s on a topic outside of their expertise.

  • You will be part of a team that works hard to get smarter together by giving each other feedback that’s direct, actionable, and respectful.

  • We’re deeply motivated by the work we do and committed to using the technology we build ethically, so we’re looking for teammates who feel the same way.

  • You will work on challenging technical problems with the goal of building lean and innovative solutions.

  • By being at the ground floor of a rapidly expanding company, you will get the opportunity to learn new skills, make important decisions, and work closely with team leaders.
