About the Team:
The Data Science team is responsible for deriving data-driven insights to support Worldcoin’s key decisions. Because of our unique growth model of using a global network of Orb Operators to give a free share of Worldcoin to everyone on Earth, we require a high-performing Data Science team that is able to manage and analyze large amounts of data generated by our products and operations. In particular, the team’s responsibilities include (1) business intelligence, (2) statistics, and (3) data engineering.
About the Opportunity:
As our first Product Data Scientist, you will enable our Product team to make data-driven decisions regarding the design of the World App. You will be responsible for (1) optimizing the Product team’s data collection and experimentation efforts, (2) providing business intelligence insights, and (3) performing in-depth data analyses. You will report to our Head of Data Science, while being embedded in one or more product squads, working closely with our Head of Product and their team of senior product managers. Your work will directly impact product feature design as well as our data science and tooling decisions.
In this role, you will:
- Help the product team collect the right data and define the right metrics to be able to measure and track the performance of the World App
- Enable the product team to understand trends and patterns in a timely manner by building BI dashboards
- Empower the product team with data and help them make decisions on the product roadmap (e.g., funnel metrics, analysis of churn)
- Identify trends and connect sometimes seemingly disconnected data sets to develop hypotheses regarding key factors influencing the user lifecycle
- Collaborate with our statistician to design and run experiments, ensuring that the right approach is taken to disentangle causation from correlation
- Develop both backwards-looking analyses on product performance and user behavior as well as forward-looking predictive models to help us better understand Worldcoin’s users and their needs (e.g., retention and engagement models, next-best action prediction)
- Support and guide our early data infrastructure and tooling decisions
- Advanced degree in a quantitative field like computer science, statistics, physics, or similar, or relevant work experience.
- 4+ years of hands-on work experience in a similar role, including prior experience in product-driven organizations
- Deep understanding of statistical inference techniques
- Experience with causal inference a plus
- Excellent working knowledge of SQL
- Significant programming experience in at least one high-level programming language (e.g., Python)
- Experience in data wrangling needed to transform complex noisy datasets into a form suitable for analysis
- Knowledge in event data analytics and customer funnel analytics a plus
- Experience with BI tools like Metabase, Tableau, or Looker
- Experience setting up and running experiments to ensure statistically significant results
- Experience telling stories and making recommendations based on data
- Skilled at managing cross-functional relationships and communicating with product leadership
- Practically oriented and “getting-the-job-done” mindset
- Thriving in a fast-paced and continuously evolving environment
- Experience with Blockchain technology a plus
