Senior Data Scientist

About Alice

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.

Join us!


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.

How you should be qualified
  • You want to go back to a series A startup or you are *super* ready to be challenged at your first startup.

  • 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

  • You pride yourself on your ability to communicate complex concepts of data science to anyone who’ll listen, whether they’re technical or not

  • You subscribe to “strong opinions loosely held”. You relish the idea of learning from your team members

An Insider's view of Alice

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

The company is very respectful of the employees' diverse personal commitments and is always supportive and respectful of when employees need flexibility with their schedules. In turn, when the team needs to rally behind a cause, you see no hesitation for folks to dive in and dedicate the hours needed to make sure we achieve important goals.


Director of Customer Success

What does your typical day look like?

For me, there are no typical days at Alice. Everyday presents new challenges and opportunities—that's what makes it so exciting to work here!


Special Assistant to the CEO

What are some things you learned at the company?

It is about as cheesy as it sounds, I'm learning everyday! I always make the joke that I usually haven't paid much attention to insurance, benefits and taxes, and now I need to be a subject matter expert. It's also such a large and fragmented ecosystem, so there are many dots to connect.


Partnership Development Manager

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

I make myself accessible by grabbing lunch with one or more team members every week. I also find that making coffee runs with teammates to be effective. There are also traditional one-on-one meetings to address more formal items.
