We’re hiring! We are now looking for developers to join us in our Oslo offices. Who are? You are a student on your last year at University preparing yourself to take the training wheels off and try out what you have learned. Here at Unacast we can guarantee that you get a future proof start of your career working with one of the most challenging and exciting datasets in the world!


The Position

We are hiring a Data Scientist to strengthen our analytics and product development capabilities. As a Data Scientist at Unacast, you will help drive a data-first culture across the company. Your main tasks will be to analyze and visualize data, design, implement and improve our insight products. Our Data Scientists work closely with the product owners to add new features and improve the quality and accuracy of our existing offerings.

You will work in a cross-functional team consisting of engineers, product managers, and sales representatives. Your main hub will be at our spectacular Oslo offices, but you are free to work from anywhere you want as long as you get things done. You’ll also have the opportunity to work out of our NYC offices for periods of time, and you can expect to travel there at least a couple of times every year.

We run our technical stack on Google Cloud, and you will get the chance to work with Google’s cutting-edge technology, like BigQuery and DataFlow, to process, store and understand data. We're not demanding that you have a lot of experience with them, all we ask is that you are willing to learn something new every day.

To us, innovation is the ability to tackle the challenges we don't currently know we have before someone else does it. For that reason, we acknowledge that we need a diverse team with different backgrounds and experiences. If you feel that your knowledge can help us get to the next level, we'd love to speak to you.
