My client, a growing startup that has a strong feminist mission and sex positivity, is looking for a Data Scientist.

They are a women’s sexual health and wellness company.

As a Data Scientist, you will:

•             Act as a knowledge manager in the company; a highly trusted and credible resource whose technical ability is matched only by his or her judgment and communications skills

•             Apply exploratory data analysis to solve high-visibility problems that take into account our business needs, our technical capabilities, and the economics of our industry

•             Communicate with business leaders to present results and recommendations

•             Analyze the consumer journey funnel (Acquisition, Activation, Retention, Referral, Revenue) and actively look for opportunities to improve brand awareness as well as the customer experience.

•             Use a data-driven approach to identify gaps and opportunities across all marketing initiatives.

•             Identify patterns in customer behavior and shopping.

•             Measure the effectiveness of each marketing initiative and campaign, identify trends, and isolate opportunities for improvement.

•             Review and continually optimize digitalmarketingcampaigns, including Facebook, SEM, PLAs, AdWords, affiliate & influencer marketing, and other relevant channels.

•             Support the development and maintenance of datasets and reports for consumer segmentation, consumer modeling, and test/control ROAS reporting

•             Contribute to content strategy through a data lens: always thinking about how X content will produce Y result.

The ideal candidate will:

•             Have an undergraduatedegree in Statistics, Marketing, Economics, Business Administration, or related field

•             Be curious, resourceful, and have a killer instinct for solving problems

•             Have a strong understanding of statistics, algorithm design, machine learning, and computer programming (UNIX, SQL, Python, AWS) and experience with at least three of the following software packages: Excel, R, SPSS, Mode, Tableau, Heap, Google Analytics

•             Are passionate about developing data-informed hypotheses and experimenting with new approaches to targeting and messaging customers. You are relentless in searching for the best options for customer acquisition, retention, and growth.

•             Have a hands-on and ‘make it happen’ attitude – someone who is scrappy and creative and prefers to work in a fast paced dynamic environment

•             Live and breathe ‘accountability’ – say what you’ll do and do what you say

•             Self-starter - ability to act and operate independently with minimal daily direction from manager to accomplish

•             Are fun, upbeat & positive – sure, we work hard, but we also make sure to have fun along the way!

•             Are able to work efficiently and effectively while holding yourself to the highest standards.

•             Are someone who is reliable and has the ability to work independently as well as with a team.

•             Strong written and verbal communications, outstanding organizational skills

•             Proven prioritization, time management, and project management skills
