Data Scientist

Oakland, California
Business Development & Intelligence
Full-time
We’re looking for a Data Scientist to join our rapidly-growing team!

As a Data Scientist, you will draw on your technical aptitude, quantitative abilities, and business acumen to enable and evangelize data-driven decision-making in every part of the company. As a member of the business intelligence team, you excel in a fast-paced, self-starting environment. You are self-driven, naturally curious, and highly logical; someone who can take on complex problems, suggest a rigorous approach, and provide clear solutions. You have exceptional collaboration and communication skills, and can work across teams to discover opportunities and influence decisions with data. You have the technical chops to drive change through data insights: you know how to plow through data with SQL/Python/R/Tableau, surface insights using math/statistics/ML techniques, and measure the business impact using efficiency/conversion/profit metrics. This position is a particularly good fit for someone interested in joining a fast-growing startup and helping it scale, drawing on and expanding the breadth of their proficiencies alongside the development of the company.

If this sounds like a match, we’d love to hear from you! This is a full-time on-site position located in Oakland, California.

    • Produce detailed reports and analyses using statistics and ML techniques to illuminate relationships between factors that drive growth, customer satisfaction, feature adoption, and other business metrics
    • Create powerful dashboards and self-service reporting tools that teams can use to drive decisions and gain insights about performance and other metrics, as well as ad hoc reports to enable data-driven decisions and satisfy client needs
    • Design and carry out experiments to test the efficacy of different options for user outreach
    • Identify new data sources and create resilient pipelines that will aggregate cross-company data as well as store data in an easy-to-use manner for the company

About Everlaw 

We help law firms, government agencies, and corporations sift through millions of documents of evidence in big lawsuits and investigations to find the proverbial smoking gun (or needle in the haystack -- pick your metaphor). It's a multi-billion dollar space typically dominated by service-oriented vendors, and we're coming at it with cutting-edge technology and elegant design. It's working, and we've been growing very rapidly: we host scores of terabytes of data and work with all 50 state Attorneys General and hundreds of law firms on some of the most high-profile cases litigated today.
