Headquartered in New York City, Dataiku was founded in Paris in 2013 and achieved unicorn status in 2019. Now, more than 800 employees work across the globe in our offices and remotely. Backed by a renowned set of investors and partners including CapitalG, Tiger Global, and ICONIQ Growth, we've set out to build the future of AI.

The role of a Data Scientist at Dataiku is quite unique. Our Data Scientists not only code up solutions to real-world problems, but also participate in client-facing endeavors throughout the customer journey. This includes supporting their discovery of the platform, helping integrate Dataiku with other tools and technologies, some user training, and co-developing data science projects from design to deployment.

Just as the non-technical skills are important, so too are the technical. Our Data Scientists work in the Dataiku platform every day. Aside from the visual tools, our team uses mostly python, with occasional work in other languages (e.g., R, SQL, pyspark, JavaScript, etc.). An ideal candidate is excited to learn complex new technologies and modeling techniques while being able to explain their work to other data scientists and clients.

    • Analyze and investigate various kinds of data and machine learning applications across industries and use cases
    • Help users discover and master the Dataiku platform, via user trainings, office hours, and ongoing consultative support
    • Provide data science expertise both to customers and internally to Dataiku's sales and marketing teams
    • Develop custom Python or R-based "plugins" in collaboration with Solutions, R&D, and Product teams, to enhance Dataiku's functionality

You might be a good fit for the role if you have:

    • Curiosity and a desire to learn new topics and skills
    • Empathy for others and an eagerness to share your knowledge and expertise with your colleagues, Dataiku's customers, and the general public
    • The ability to clearly explain complex topics to technical as well as non-technical audiences
    • 2 - 10 years of experience with ML tools (e.g., Python, R)
    • 2 - 10 years of experience building models  
    • Familiarity with data visualization in python, R
    • Understanding of underlying data systems such as Cloud architectures, Hadoop, or SQL

Technical skills that may help you in the role:

    • Experience with Consulting and/or Customer-facing Data Science roles
    • Experience with Data Engineering or MLOps
    • Experience developing WebApps in Javascript, RShiny, or Dash
    • Experience building APIs
    • Experience using enterprise data science tools
    • Passion for teaching or public speaking
