About the role:

We are currently looking for Senior Data Scientists to join our Client Analysis team to be based anywhere remotely in the USA. 

In this unique role as Data Scientist, you will leverage your experience developing algorithms and analyzing massive data sets to tell data stories while also working in partnership with the go-to-market team to drive revenue generation for Socure by ensuring that potential and existing customers can understand - through deep analysis - the benefit and value of Socure’s products throughout the pre and post sales cycle. 

This is an excellent opportunity for a Data Scientist who thrives when they're able to communicate a data story to an audience (tech and non-tech), and who is not satisfied only working behind the scenes.

  • Create convincing data stories to showcase how we can help our customers eliminate identity fraud, streamline their end-user experience, and support their risk management efforts holistically
  • 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

Qualifications: 

  • You have a degree in a quantitative field, or equivalent work experience - advanced degree is preferred.
  • You have 5+ years experience in data science, data analysis, or analytics engineering
  • You have extensive theoretical and practical understanding of state-of-the-art supervised and unsupervised machine learning methods
  • You know how to write clean, performant code in Python and/or R, and have 2+ years experience working with massive real-life datasets
  • You have experience querying relational databases with SQL
  • You have experience working with cloud tools and technologies in AWS, Azure or GCP
  • You know how to tell stories with data (dashboarding, building interactive data stories and actionable presentations) 
  • 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
  • You have experience and/or interest in identity verification and fraud prevention (preferred)

Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
