Data Scientist

Powerley is looking for an experienced data scientist with strong statistical and predictive modelling capabilities paired with business strategy skills. This person will be a very curious individual who enjoys diving deep beneath the surface to drive the development of the algorithms necessary to inform and enhance the product and user experience, and succinctly communicate that information, both verbally and visually. You will work closely with world-class engineers and developers to pair the insights derived from the algorithms developed with a great design and user experience to provide actionable information and insights. Finally, the analyst will need to understand how the products are developed and even more important, as big data touches the privacy of consumers, they need to have a set of ethical responsibilities.

In addition to being a data whiz, our perfect candidate is someone who is driven to solve challenging problems while collaborating with a great team to do it.
