Job Description


As a Data Scientist on our team, you will help us craft data strategies, implement models, and generally work towards improving outcomes for the creditors and borrowers we serve. You will play a pivotal role in using data to build our current and future products.

Your Impact

  • Borrower experience. Help make the collections experience simpler and more empathetic for borrowers while improving recoveries. This might include running experiments to improve conversion, analyzing user behavior to find opportunities for product improvement, and designing reinforcement learning models to automate decision-making.
  • Client experience. Dig deep into borrower behavior to help creditors build a better understanding of their borrowers. This includes building ML-based recommendations of how creditors can have more effective interactions with their borrowers and visualization that make your recommendations easy to understand.
  • Data sophistication and peer development. Level up the analytics team by sharing your knowledge of statistics, data science practices, and the problem domain, helping ensure their success. You’ll do this through code review, pair programming, documentation, and just plain being supportive.
  • Data infrastructure. Improve our database schemas and scheduled jobs to make analytics more efficient and optimize our resource utilization.

  • Experience managing experiments
  • Mid-level to advanced SQL proficiency and ability to write simple, maintainable queries
  • A track record of driving complex decisions involving stakeholders both inside and outside your team
  • A desire to find the best possible outcome for your team, whether that means building a complex model or writing SQL queries to unblock a product decision

What We Can Offer You

  • Pet-friendly office (only in NYC, for now!)
  • Unlimited PTO so you can take the time you need to rest and recharge
