How do we improve the relevancy of profile recommendations? How do we improve payer penetration and conversion? What makes somebody swipe right 🔜on Bumble? What’s the perfect length of a first message? To emoji 😀, or not to emoji 😔?


We’re looking for curious Data Scientists who are buzzing 🐝to solve impactful questions (such as the ones above) for our members.


What’s in it for you?


You’ll be doing all the typical day-to-day tasks such as manipulating complex datasets, optimising the way we allocate multi-million 💰💰💰marketing budgets across more than 100 markets, helping us create products that solve the creation of meaningful, equitable and healthy relationships 💛and helping keep all members happy 😃and safe.


You’ll be involved with all of our apps (Bumble, Badoo, Fruitz, BumbleBizz and BumbleBFF), with access to the most diverse, varied, clean and complex data set in the technology world right now (10’s of billions of data points per day!!).


You’ll collaborate closely with several teams including Data Scientists, Machine Learning Engineers and Scientists, Data Engineers, Product Managers, Analysts, People Recommendations etc and all levels of seniority, so will have exposure to all of the team.

What we look for in a Data Analyst / Data Scientist


We want to step away from the multitude of similar, monotonous JD’s 😴… so we’ll say we are looking for experienced Data Scientists so you’ll need all the typical skills you’d expect (SQL, Python, predictive modelling, answering problems that others struggle with etc) but more interestingly we’d love to hear from anyone that can help us answer the following…
  • Product Insights:
    • What makes someone swipe right?
    • What progresses a chat into a date?
    • What features should we build?
    • How to ensure all our users are safe and happy on Bumble?
    • How to improve relevancy and make matches more meaningful?
  • Revenue Insights (monetisation):
    • How to optimise monetisation dynamics and techniques?
  • Revenue Insights (pricing):
    • How do we improve elasticity, payer propensity, dynamic pricing and other price optimisation techniques?


Sounds like something of interest?


Great! We’d love to hear from you and can’t wait to chat with you!
