We're ushering in the era of Data Intelligence. 

We’re shaping the way companies manage data by helping customers connect the right data, insights, and algorithms for all Data Citizens. When everyone across the organization is enabled with data, true transformation can take place. We are building a team of exceptional people to help us deliver on that promise. If you are interested in a career at the leading edge of technology, we look forward to hearing from you.

How you'll make an impact at Collibra:

Collibra is looking for a Lead Data Scientist in the newly created data office. This role will report to the CTO and Cofounder and will be an integral part in helping Collibra’s rapid growth and our thought leading position in data intelligence. 

This is a hands-on, roll-up-your-sleeves position and requires a passion for data, and a capability to turn data into insights, decisions and actions. You’ll set the example of what it means to be a data scientist, both inside of Collibra as well as outside. You’ll be a mentor to others in our internal data and analytics community.

You work well with people across teams - especially on difficult business challenges. You probably work even better with all sorts of data, analytics and AI/ML technology - especially to solve those challenges. You are always curious about new technology because it may offer a better, faster solution and also because you want to stay ahead of the curve. You are excited to promote an insights-driven data culture.

In this position, you are a key stakeholder in the company’s data strategy and its implementation to generate value from data. You’ll be responsible for building and operationalizing data products (from data collection, cleaning, preprocessing, to training models and running them in production). The ideal candidate knows that data needs to marry math, and can communicate across the business to understand challenges and share solutions. 

As an expert you’ll help move the needle on Collibra’s thought leading position by authoring whitepapers, speaking at events, and engaging with customers to help lead them in the right “digital” direction.

A day in the life of a Data Scientist at Collibra:

You’ll be reporting directly to the Co-Founder & CTO, and will be responsible for a wide range of tasks, including:

  • Delivering data products, from end to end, starting from identification (e.g., collaborating with business leaders in product, engineering, sales, finance, …) of opportunities, data collection, and training on the models, to deployment and maintenance of the data product in production.
  • Working with large and complex data sets; solving difficult data analysis problems by applying advanced analytics methods as needed.
  • Delivering compelling data-driven solutions that provide users with key insights when they need it, and where they need it.
  • Communicating findings to technical collaborators, and business stakeholders through storytelling.
  • Serving as a go-to expert in a data-related sub-domain and provide actionable feedback as part of data science experiment peer reviews.
  • Mentoring more junior data-scientists one to one, through peer reviews and academic guidance
You Have:
  • Significant experience applying machine learning to real business problems.
  • MS or PhD in CS, Machine Learning, Operational Research, Statistics, or other work in a highly quantitative field. 
  • 4+ years of industry experience in predictive modeling, analysis, or predictive software development
  • Fluency with cloud-based data infrastructures (AWS, Azure, or GCP), SQL/Python/R/Julia/..., Spark, and Dashboarding (e.g. Tableau).
  • Backend programming experience in one or more languages.
  • The inherent ability to explain complex ideas and algorithms in understandable ways.
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills. Demonstrated ability to communicate with business stakeholders to understand requirements, and present findings and recommendations that demonstrate values
  • Experience writing data pipelines and working with time series analysis are a plus.
We Offer:
  • A friendly, rapidly growing environment where your input is valued and growth is fostered
  • Ongoing opportunities to collaborate with fellow Collibrians globally
  • Flexible hours = quality > quantity
  • Bi-monthly catered lunches. Never go hungry again!
  • Did we mention happy hour?
  • Spacious brand new offices in NYC
  • A state-of-the-art laptop for work
  • And of course, a competitive salary with a strong benefits package

An Insider's view of Collibra

What’s the vibe like in the office?

There are a lot of options for when I want to be “distracted” from my work. The office has an amazing mix of personalities that blend together very well. It’s great to have exposure to the individuals who started this company, as well as the rest of the c-suite employees. The office is collaborative so it feels like your opinion actually matters.


Sales Development Representative

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Cross-team collaboration within Collibra is integral to my position. As an FP&A Analyst, I act as a financial advisor to co-workers across different teams to ensure business decisions and their corresponding impacts help achieve not just Collibra’s business goals, but Collibra’s financial goals as well.


FP&A Analyst

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Back in the summer of 2016, I started working at Collibra as an SDR. Fast-forward just two years, and not only have I had the opportunity to create a new account executive role, but I'm now the global sales leader for that team! Collibra is growing fast and there are loads of exciting opportunities available to those who want to work for it.


Manager, Junior Account Executives
