Data Scientist

Toronto
Software Engineering
Full-time
What business problem will you be solving? Build out and develop a deeper understanding of our existing marketplace model, and use data to influence strategic company-level decisions.

What will you learn and work on?

    • We are a data-driven company at the core; every decision we make is rooted in understanding the key metrics, levers, and KPI’s to ensure we are making the best possible choices.
    • Complete ownership for founding the data science discipline and lead from the front on solving our most challenging problems.
    • Partner with all areas of the business to dive deep into our mature data infrastructure to really get a firm grasp of the levers that impact the business.
    • Create strategic level models to help predict key business metrics, and use these to influence our decision making.
    • Close partnership with our Engineering team means you will always have a Data Engineer on hand to build out the infrastructure, pipelines, and pull together the data you need.
    • Choose the tool set we are going to use and develop a roadmap for strengthening the data science function.

What can you bring to the role?

    • Passion for solving real-world business problems, unfortunately heavily research focused work isn’t very relevant for this role.
    • Strong Python or R skills, or something similar.
    • Background in statistical modeling and extrapolation.
    • Passion for taking abstract problems and creating data-driven solutions that can be implemented by the whole company.
    • Ownership mentality! You will be the driving force for the data science function and we need someone who is excited to be the owner and leader.
