Senior Data Scientist

Job description

Clarity’s mission is to bring social impact to the market. Our disruptive tool allows systematic measurement and optimization of the social impact of investment portfolios, and our proprietary methodology provides a deeper understanding of the needs of the population and gives a comprehensive view of how those needs are covered by different economic actors. Together, the tool and the methodology will improve the allocation of the World’s capital to human needs.

Underlying both of them there is a strong foundation of technology, big data, and machine learning algorithms that allows us to consume, blend, and interpret many disparate data sources... That’s where you come in!

We are looking for a Senior Data Scientist to join our growing team. If you’re a driven, smart, creative, and curious individual with passion for tech and social impact, we are looking for you!

What you’ll do:

  • You’ll help develop the “gold standard” for social impact that will be used by investors, consumers, and governments to allocate resources in the most impactful way.

  • You’ll immerse yourself and deep dive into our ever-growing set of external and internal data flows, and produce insightful analyses that enable data-driven discovery and innovation throughout and the emergent field of impact investment as a whole.
  • You’ll research, design, validate, and deploy machine learned models that use structured and unstructured data and leverage advanced techniques for classification, regression, topic modeling, and NLP to produce new metrics that will be included in the Clarity platform.
  • After experimenting and building with different data sources, modeling tools, and advanced techniques, you will share your findings with the team, present at international conferences, and publish in top-tier journals.


Who you are:

  • You have 5+ years of professional experience as a data scientist, and hold an advanced degree in a quantitative field (Computer Sciences, Engineering, Mathematics, Physics, … ).

  • You are proficient in at least one major data science language such as Python or Scala. You write elegant, maintainable code and you're comfortable working in a variety of tech stacks.

  • You have hands-on experience analyzing Big Data sources and are proficient with key tools for data ingest, storing, processing and analysis (hadoop + spark + ecosystem)

  • You thrive in collaborative, start-up paced environments with fast-changing requirements and priorities; a getting-the-job-done mentality and you are always ready and eager to learn.

  • You are completely fluent in English (C1 minimum)
