As a data scientist, you will work at the intersection of product, engineering, sales, and customer success to analyze conversational and statistical data. You'll have an impact on acquiring new customers, helping our current customers solve critical business questions, and generally influence the product direction and thinking based on data derived insights.

If you enjoy solving problems faced by large enterprise companies, have world-class written and verbal communication skills, and able to handle data analysis, external presentations, and organize internal and external project timelines, then you might be a great fit.

What you'll do:

    • Analyze large corpuses of text data using standard NLP practices: an example analysis might be "what are the key phrases that sales agents use before making a sale?" and making that analysis repeatable to be used across different teams and customers
    • Create tooling and support for statistical analyses: for example designing an experiment to have an even distribution across control and test users, supporting ongoing analysis of the experiment, and ultimately delivering insights and a recommendation based on the results of the test
    • Build and share static and dynamic data visualizations that can be used both internally and externally based on requirements and feedback from customers
    • Own the end-to-end creation of chatbots starting from the initial key intent discovery to configuration of chatbots using standard 3p and internal tools

We are looking for someone who:

    • Proficiency in SQL and data visualization tools (e.g. Tableau, Looker, etc.) as well as standard NLP analysis tooling (e.g. Numpy, Pandas, Jupyter, etc.)
    • Experience with statistical concepts such as statistical significance, selection bias, determining outliers, etc.
    • Strong written and verbal skills willing and able to present results and back up findings to internal and external executives
    • [Bonus] Familiarity with standard chatbot or dialogue frameworks (e.g. Dialog Flow, Rasa, Amazon Lex, etc.)
