Textio's mission is to build software that creates understanding between people. Our category-defining augmented writing platform has already transformed the way that thousands of companies write and hire, and now we are looking for a creative, curious, and experienced Senior Data Scientist to join our team.

Are you passionate about creating meaningful business guidance from analytics data? In this role you will partner with an exceptional team of data scientists, engineers, product managers, and others to advance Textio's quantitative understanding of our users, our product, and our business, in order to evolve our analytics strategy.

The analytics initiatives you lead will drive insights that power strategic company decisions, product direction, and the stories that Textio shares with the world. You will measure the quality and impact of current and future Textio features, build end-to-end analysis workflows, turn ad-hoc insights into data products, and directly bring value to customers through your analyses.

You will be joining a welcoming and collaborative data science team at a company that deeply understands the value of data. Textio is a phenomenal place to build, learn, experiment, and deliver impact as a data scientist.

What you'll be doing:

  • Partnering with colleagues across our organization to understand Textio's analytics needs and developing strategies to address them
  • Designing, creating, and maintaining self-service analytics/BI solutions and the data sources and pipelines that back them (using a variety of tools, such as Python, SQL, Tableau, Mixpanel, Hubspot, AWS serverless services, etc.)
  • Developing product instrumentation, metrics, and experimentation capabilities to support the evolution of Textio's superb augmented writing experience
  • Converting business questions into analyses, quantifying or reducing uncertainty in the face of limited data, and translating results into operational, product, and customer impact
  • Strengthening the expertise of Textio's data science and related teams through mentorship, partnership, and technical leadership

We'd love to hear from you if you:

  • Have experience building analytics/BI solutions that synthesize data from various sources and serve end users in multiple business functions
  • Create precise, interpretable, inventive, and repeatable analyses that are guided by business context and the contours of the relevant, available data
  • Enjoy discovering and articulating the narrative in a data set, using your skills of data exploration, scripting, statistical inference, modeling/machine learning, and visualization
  • Have a proven track record of mentorship and technical leadership and enjoy investing time in the growth of your colleagues
  • Are comfortable working in ambiguous problem spaces, but you can map a path to increased clarity, and break down this work so that collaborators can take concrete steps along with you
  • Are naturally curious about both the problems you tackle and the technologies you use and take initiative to dive in, ask questions, and figure things out
  • Thrive in a culture that values collaboration, mentorship, and learning
  • Communicate your point of view but are low ego

It's a bonus if you:

  • Have experience developing analytics strategies to improve SaaS products and businesses
  • Have informed opinions about experimental measurement strategy (e.g., A/B testing)

Right now, our employees are working from home. When we eventually reopen our Seattle office, we will continue to support remote work from Washington, New York, and California. Through 2021, we also support working remotely from Illinois, Colorado, Hawaii, and Oregon, but we may require physical relocation for employees in those states after 2021.

Textio embraces diversity and equal opportunity in a serious way. We are committed to building a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills. The more inclusive we are, the better our work will be. Textio will ensure that individuals with disabilities are provided reasonable accommodation to participate in the job application or interview process, to perform essential job functions, and to receive other benefits and privileges of employment.
