Senior Data Scientist
Wealthy people have tax and financial advisors, hourly workers don’t. Alice uses software to optimize the paychecks of hourly workers—when an employer connects Alice to their payroll, their workers keep more of what they earn without anyone learning about financial products, filling out forms, or doing any math.
Tech is supposed to trickle down to help everyone but it’s not—we’re making the technology that makes life better for working people.
We’re a bright, diverse, and dedicated team solving hard problems. Our day-to-day work crosses cultures we are passionate about—venture backed-tech, government and regulators, employers, local communities. We take pride in having team members from different backgrounds because we know that each voice matters.
What we're looking for
An experienced Data Scientist to join our team in NYC—more than just a data scientist, you care about what to model as well as how you model it. Our team is lean and data-driven, you help us ask the right questions of our data.
Our mission gets you out of bed and jazzes you up. You get that working at a startup means your work bleeds outside the edges of a job title. When you’re interested you deep dive and tell your friends. You know how models and systems work, and you enjoy explaining them to both technical and non-technical audiences.
You know how to take a loosely defined problem, help us ask the right questions of our data and come up with answers. You write clean, well-organized machine learning code and love working with engineers to deploy your models as part of production code.
What you'll get to do
It’s not easy to give millions of Americans a dollar an hour raise. You’ll play a key role in helping to develop our product vision. We're scaling rapidly and our data needs are very broad, so here's just a taster of your day-to-day challenges:
Take objectives and business questions and turn them into machine learning tasks that can deliver actionable insights
Partner with the engineering team to build end-to-end data pipelines and production code
- Work with the product team to define product requirements and measure their effectiveness
Help the business develop strategic objectives and provide analytical support to measure KPIs
- Build models to classify millions of transactions, detect anomalies and make recommendations to our users
Tying our AI and messaging to build a better conversational platform to interact with our customers
- Making all this work at scale so working Americans can keep more of what they earn
Who you'll work with
As part of this role, you’ll get to work directly with our repeat entrepreneur founders and the rest of the Alice team. Our team has previous experience from awesome places like Adobe, CBS, Handshake, Palantir, and Lending Tree. We’re backed by super smart advisors from Grand Central Tech, and notable investors including Notation Capital and Trinity Ventures.

You have expertise in modern statistics, data science and machine learning
You have experience building and deploying machine learning systems into production
You have a bunch of tools in your kit of data cleaning, analysis, exploration and model development
You think money is an important challenge in the lives of everyone and you want to solve that for people especially hourly workers
