Senior Data Scientist (Remote)

We are looking for a Senior Data Scientist to join Tickr’s AI & Data Science team. In this role you will help develop novel statistical, time series and machine learning models. You will deploy these models to production, monitor their performance, and own the entire stack. This is a great opportunity for an eager data scientist to build customer facing products with cutting-edge data science. This role will blend data science, engineering and novel research reporting directly to Tickr’s VP of Data Science. The Senior Data Scientist will also be expected to interact with clients and stakeholders, communicating complex results to them in a digestible way.

We’re a geographically diverse but tight-knit team, and looking for a data scientist with the flexibility & independence to work fully remotely, with occasional trips to Ticker HQ in San Francisco, California (once the COVID-19 pandemic is no longer a prohibiting factor).
