Textio's mission is to build software that creates understanding between people. Our category-defining augmented writing platform has 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 us.
Are you passionate about creating meaningful business guidance from analytics data? In this role you will help evolve our analytics strategy by partnering with a welcoming and collaborative team of data scientists, engineers, product managers, and others, in order to advance Textio's quantitative understanding of our users, product, and business.
Textio is a phenomenal place to build, learn, experiment, and deliver impact as a data scientist! Insights from your analyses will 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 work.
What you'll be doing:
- Partnering with colleagues to understand Textio's analytics needs, developing strategies to address them, and translating results into operational, product, and customer impact
- Leading development of product instrumentation, metrics, and experimentation capabilities
- Designing, creating, and maintaining self-service analytics/BI solutions and the data sources and pipelines that back them (using tools such as Python, SQL, Tableau, Mixpanel, AWS, etc.)
- Strengthening Textio's data-driven culture through mentorship, cross-functional partnerships, and technical leadership
We'd love to hear from you if you:
- Have 4+ years creating precise, interpretable, inventive, and repeatable analyses strongly guided by business context
- Enjoy discovering the narrative in a complex data set using scripting, statistical inference, modeling/machine learning, and visualization
- Revel in helping teams define and track their success metrics, and better understand how their work bubbles up to overall company success; bonus if you have this experience while supporting a SaaS product
- Have a proven track record of mentorship and technical leadership, and enjoy investing time in the growth of your colleagues
- Have demonstrated experience mapping ambiguous problems into clear plans that enable collaborators to take concrete steps alongside you
- Channel your curiosity into initiative to dive in, explore the data, ask questions, and figure things out
- Communicate your point of view but are low ego

- We offer flexible schedules and unlimited time off. We’re about long-term growth and success, so that means working sustainably.
