Udemy is seeking a technical leader to join the experimentation group of the decision science team. Experimentation is a key tool in Udemy's decision making process and is relied upon by teams across the company. The experimentation group is responsible for addressing a wide range of methodological, adoption, interpretation, and measurement challenges with the experimentation platform, and works cross functionally with other data scientists and engineers towards its development.

As a senior data scientist within the experimentation group, you will be a technical and thought leader to help drive the adoption of new methodologies to enhance our experimentation capabilities, help drive experimentation culture across the company, act as a subject matter expert for experimentation, and consult on experiments as needed.

    • Lead the design, analysis, and interpretation of experiments
    • Provide hands-on technical guidance and mentorship for junior team members
    • Drive experimentation culture throughout the entire company
    • Maintain high quality standards for data science work and recruiting
    • Build Udemy’s technical brand through talks, blog posts, and publications

We’re excited about you because you have:

    • 6+ years of relevant experience
    • Deep statistical knowledge in applied statistics, experimental design, A/B testing, quasi-experimental methods, and causal inference
