  • Provide thought leadership and be the customer’s voice for building the next generation of Socure’s core models and product
  • Create tools and automated workflows to improve the speed, accuracy, and reproducibility of our analysis
  • Partner closely with GTM teams (Sales, Solution Consultants, Account Managers and Technical Account Managers) to derive creative ways of analysis and identify opportunities for upsell and product optimization
  • Build ML models when it is advantageous to explore different approaches over the established models in production

  • You are able to explain very complex algorithms, models, analyses to non-technical audiences 
  • You are an excellent verbal and written communicator and are comfortable delivering presentations with clear, complete messages
  • You thrive in a remote work environment and are excellent at setting clear goals and holding yourself accountable
