Data Platform Co-op
Co-op or Internship
Clearbanc co-founders Michele Romanow and Andrew D’Souza knew there had to be a better way to fund your business than staking your house or sacrificing ownership of your company.
Michele and Andrew deeply understand the pains of building a business; Michele bootstrapped five companies, one which was acquired by Groupon, and sits on the other side of the table as a judge on “Dragon’s Den,” Canada’s equivalent of “Shark Tank.” Andrew, meanwhile, has raised hundreds of millions of dollars for multiple startups and is an investor and advisor to many others.
They've seen the broken funding process from all sides, and the idea for Clearbanc was inspired by their own experiences and struggles building companies and working with other entrepreneurs.
Clearbanc has invested in thousands of companies using data science to identify high-growth funding opportunities. This data-driven approach takes the bias out of decision making. Clearbanc has funded 8x more female founders than traditional VCs, and has invested in 43 states in the US in 2019.
WHY WORK WITH US?
We're a company built by founders for founders, and we’re laser focused on our mission to help entrepreneurs succeed. You'll get the chance to work closely with people who have built, scaled and sold companies before.
While we're obsessed with our vision, we don't take ourselves too seriously. We don’t know all the answers, so we’re constantly experimenting and learning together.
Clearbanc is going through an exciting growth phase. We’ve just closed a $300M round and we're looking for the right people to join #TeamClearbanc. This is a unique opportunity for an ambitious person looking to make an impact while getting exposure to fintech and learning what it takes to build a successful startup.
The Clearbanc Data Platform Team has three responsibilities:
1) The Data Platform for delivering data insights at scale
2) The ETL pipelines provisioning Clearbanc’s analytics infrastructure
3) The tooling to level up the Data Scientist’s workflow
Clearbanc’s datasets are growing exponentially, necessitating larger data engineering efforts, the Data Platform is required to deploy increasingly complex models, and our Data Science team’s infrastructure needs grow by the hour. We are looking for individuals who are excited to jump in and work on these problems.
You will have the pleasure of contributing to a modern Python stack built with the Sanic Web Framework, Uvloop, and Asyncpg. The team and the platform are relatively young so you will also have the opportunity to contribute substantially to its formative development. Our goal for coops who joins is to leave you with the skills and the confidence to work professionally on any software team.
We come from diverse backgrounds including economics, life sciences, physics, engineering, and are open to applicants from anywhere. The only requirement is a love of solving problems and a burning need to build systems that scale.
In our experience students who are comfortable working with network requests, coroutines, database queries, and problem solving using Python perform well in the role.
Be prepared to demonstrate these skills during the interview process. Come ready to code.
