We are looking for a hands-on Head of Marketing Data Science who can directly contribute to IC work around acquisition tooling and research, in parallel building a supporting team of Data Scientists, dedicated to creating a great marketing data experience.
What You’ll Like About Us:
- We work on problems that affect the lives of real people. Our users depend on us to make positive changes to their health and their lives.
- 9-figure annual marketing budget and data-driven company through and through.
- We base our work on scientifically-proven, peer-reviewed methodologies that are designed by medical professionals.
- We’re a respectful, diverse, and dynamic environment in which Engineering is a first-class citizen, and where you’ll be able to work on a variety of interesting problems that affect the lives of real people.
- We offer a generous budget for personal development expenses like training courses, conferences, and books.
- You’ll get three weeks’ paid vacation and a flexible work policy that is remote- and family-friendly (about 50% of our engineering team is fully remote). We worry about results, not time spent in seats.
What We’ll Like About You:
- You have 5-6+ years of experience as a Data Scientist or Data Analyst in a similarly-sized organization, with a proven record of analysis and research that positively impacts your team.
- You possess a deep understanding of Marketing Data Science, and are ready to take on the mantle as Noom's thought leader in the field.
- You possess excellent communication skills and the ability to clearly communicate technical concepts to a non-technical audience
- You possess excellent SQL/relational algebra skills, ideally with at least a basic knowledge of how different types of databases (e.g.: column vs row storage) work.
- You have a superior knowledge of statistical analysis methods, such as input selection, logistic and standard regression, etc.
- You are comfortable writing Python code, and have good working knowledge of pandas and numpy. We don’t expect you to write production-quality code, but you should have some programming experience.
- You are comfortable with at least “medium data” technologies and how to transcend the “memory bound” nature of most analytics.
- Bonus points if you have a proven track record of growing data-science teams through great hires, as well as fostering the creation of a harmonious culture.
