Who we are

CollegeVine is the world’s fastest-growing guidance company. Our mission is to bring lifelong guidance to the next generation. Ivy, our AI-powered mentor and superconnector, presents students with timely advice, acts as a sounding board, and surfaces valuable real-world networking opportunities that can change life outcomes. Trusted by millions and counting for guidance on their professional journeys, we are growing quickly in both adoption and revenue. If you want to apply your skills to a unique and consequential mission, we invite you to write the next chapter of your career alongside talented and exceptional teammates at CollegeVine!

About the role:

As an early member of CollegeVine's Data Science team, you’ll reinforce and improve our data-driven culture while embedding directly with Product teams and company leadership. This is a generalist role, and you should expect to work on everything from ML modeling to rigorous A/B testing to data visualization. Most importantly, you will be a core member of the product development team, working on CollegeVine’s most-impactful problems.

If you’ve been a founder yourself, or a member of an early-stage startup, you’ll feel right at home with the amount of ownership you’ll be expected to take on.

This role is fully remote.

Responsibilities:

  • Leverage your business and technical knowledge to help shape the company roadmap
  • Identify business problems & product ideas, with a clear perspective on the level of polish required (MVP vs. full product, etc…)
  • Deliver high-quality data work in an iterative, small-batch manner. Shorter cycle times == faster feedback
  • Enhance our data-driven culture through direct coaching, tooling, and workshops
  • Visualize data in meaningful ways, and create data tools for use within & outside CollegeVine

Requirements:

  • 7+ years of software engineering experience (including internships)
  • Analytical, strategic, and creative thinker with a proven track record of pragmatically solving problems
  • Strong programming skills, comfortable with Python, SQL, and (ideally) R, as well as relational databases and basic web-development
  • Excellent business acumen
  • Have a humble attitude, a love for learning, an eagerness to help your colleagues, and a desire to do whatever it takes to make the team succeed
  • Care deeply about the end user experience and take pride in building products to solve customer needs

Why you'll love working at CollegeVine

  • Enjoy actually meaningful work: Spare yourself the dread of having to do mental gymnastics about your company's mission by working on something that's high impact and clearly beneficial for society.
  • Iterate quickly and see the impact of your decisions and hard work: You'll find that the teammates who you serve are not only appreciative, and also celebrate your ideas and innovations.
  • Be part of a strong consumer brand: We've been closing the guidance gap in the United States since 2013 and have one of the most valuable brands in the space. Mention you work on CollegeVine to any college-bound family and see their faces light up.
  • Experience remote work at its best: We claim to do remote right and can't wait to talk to you about it!

CollegeVine was originally founded in 2013 in Cambridge, MA as Admissions Hero and reaches over 20 million families annually in search of guidance. Our roots are in delivering near-peer mentorship at scale, which has since evolved to delivering lifelong guidance through AI and a vast professional network. We have raised over $66m in venture funding from dedicated investors such as Morningside Technology Ventures (Xiaomi, TikTok), the founding partner of 5Y Capital, Fidelity, University Ventures, and more. In 2020, after years of being a remote-friendly company, CollegeVine became a fully remote company centered on Eastern Time with a diverse cast of team members based predominantly in the United States, but also around the world.
