Junior Data Scientist
You’re a recent graduate with the right skills, maybe some internship experience, or just significant academic
experience in data science / data modeling disciplines and looking to learn more. You’re a self-described data geek

You will be responsible for everything from working closely with a development team to analyze the performance
of a new feature to improve predictive algorithms for predicting lead conversion. Your work will sometimes
turn into a directly productized feature, resulting in a new dataset on our products for our millions of real estate
consumers. Other times, your work will form the foundation of internal KPIs to improve our business operations.
Most importantly, you’ll be expected (and encouraged) to learn quickly, make some mistakes, develop some
solutions, and make big contributions!
