Data Scientist - Analytics

| Greater NYC Area

Stash is investing, simplified. We are a financial platform that makes it easy for anyone to start with as little as $5. Through education and guidance, we help investors learn the basics so they can confidently save and invest for themselves. At Stash, we are working toward a future where investors are as diverse as our world. 

Stash is looking for a Data Scientist with a passion for building reliable, scalable, and performant data systems and software. We look for strategic thinkers and creative problem solvers with a bias for execution and we’ll expect you to contribute code as well as product/feature ideas from the get-go. If you are looking for a culture that encourages ownership, taking calculated risks, being data-driven and that values evidence over ego, this may be the role for you.

What you’ll do:

  • Build and maintain scalable data systems and infrastructure that empower our marketing, product and business teams to make better decisions 
  • Design predictive models which grow and adapt as our products and customer base scale, utilizing machine learning, time-series and Bayesian statistics
  • Work with large datasets to help us better understand our customers and anticipate their needs through distributed computation techniques
  • Make rigorous statistical inferences from A/B testing on our product and customer segments
  • Normalize our data across institutions and sources using semi-supervised learning

Who we’re looking for:

  • MS in Computer Science, Statistics, Applied Mathematics, Physics, Engineering or a related field with 3+ years of experience
  • 2+ years of professional programming work in Python, Scala, Java, or similar
  • Experience with Pandas, R, or other statistical modeling frameworks
  • An understanding of storing and querying data from Redshift, PostgreSQL, or similar database infrastructures
  • Passion to use all aspects of data science, programming, and technology to build the financial advisor of the future
  • Experience using machine learning to improve algorithmic systems
  • Comfort with distributed computing, specifically Pyspark, AWS EMR, and Airflow
  • Knowledge of Looker or similar front end analytics platforms
  • Data Engineering and ETL experience is a big plus!
