* Experience with NLP a plus! (but not required)

What you'll do:

* Move quickly to deliver amazing data science products, developing creative solutions to our biggest data science and engineering challenges
* Build machine learning infrastructure and models (e.g. recommendation engines, statistical models, NLP engines) that drive activity on our platform, scale our business, and enhance the user experience.
* Collaborate with engineering and product leaders, as well as the co-founders, to frame and tackle a problem, both mathematically and within the business context
* Communicate rationale and findings from analyses to facilitate operational decisions
