Who you are

You are a Data Scientist or willing to be one - who is passionate about solving real-life business problems using data and cutting-edge Machine Learning. You have hands-on experience with development of data science and machine learning pipelines possibly on a cloud platform (GCP, Azure or Amazon).

You are a person with good communication skills who easily can translate insights gained from data into plain language that anyone in the company can understand and take decisions based on.

The cool things you will do with us

Our goal is to create financial services based on highly automated processes, decision-making and systems driven by data. Understanding the data, informing the business and being able to predict the outcome is key to succeed.

We are a tech company at heart. Systems, data, BI tools, models and algorithms are the core of Lendify. You will be part of taking these to the next level. We believe, for example, that customers should get an interest rate that is derived not only from their risk level but also from their propensity to accept the rate, their propensity to stay in the books and from the expected profitability of the deal, and this should be calculated on the spot for each 70 000 applicants that apply for a loan through Lendify's platform each month.

You will be part of a team who builds, deploys and uses models, as well as brings insights into Lendify's portfolios, customer base, flows of customers and all other key area of the business. Together with the team, you would develop or create models or algorithms to solve company's challenges in accurate and scalable manner, participate in testing and deploying to production as well as follow-ups.
