As a Senior Data Scientist in the Engagement Mission, you will build data products that drive the way in which technology plays a more meaningful role in fostering connections between our members and the things that make them happier & more successful.

You will work closely with engineers, analysts, product managers and designers to evolve WeWork’s member experience by focusing on creating intelligent environments and connected, consciously-engineered communities in all of our spaces.

  • Collaborate with Software Engineers to implement algorithms in production environments.
  • Develop next-generation prediction and optimization algorithms where existing ones either fall short or are inadequate.


  • 5+ years of hands-on experience building data products powered by machine learning and/or optimization algorithms in non-academic environments.
  • Ability to break down and understand complex business problems, define a solution and implement it using advanced quantitative methods.
  • Meaningful experience with and deep technical understanding of statistical analysis, machine learning (classification, regression, unsupervised, reinforced, etc.), predictive modeling, and optimization algorithms.
  • Strong programming skills with an emphasis on libraries for cleaning, exploring and visualizing data.
  • Strong oral and written communication skills, especially around analytical concepts and methods.
  • Strong work ethic and intellectual curiosity.
  • Masters or Doctoral degree in a quantitative field (e.g., mathematics, computer science, physics, economics, engineering, operations research, quantitative social science).

Nice To Have
