Senior Data Scientist
Madlan | New-York City
Posted Oct 10, 2017

At Madlan we are building an entirely new way to help answer one of life's most daunting questions: where should I live? This is a difficult question and requires the combined efforts of the best Data Scientists, Engineers, Urban Planners, Designers and Copywriters.

After only five years, we've successfully changed how Israelis find their next home. With a fresh round of funding we're bringing our technology, methods, and experience to the United States, based in New York City. If you are passionate about city life, data science, and leveraging your skills to make an impact in people's lives, we'd love to talk.

The Role:

As the Senior Data Scientist in Madlan's NYC-based team, you will have a significant role in the research of urban life in New York City. You will be researching and producing insights about various aspects of NYC's current state and dynamics: urban plans, real estate prices and trends, education, communities, social dynamics, infrastructure, traffic, environmental factors, and more. We aren't just collecting data, we are genuinely telling the story of the city, block by block. You will be inventing new methods for studying urban data which, as we scale, will be used in large urban areas throughout the US, and eventually around the world.

While the role primarily focuses on developing our product, you will have time to conduct primary research which will be published as white papers and news articles for mass consumption. In addition to publishing your work, you will have the opportunity to present your work and the work of the team at relevant conferences and industry gatherings.

Desired Skills and Experience:

  • Good knowledge of NYC and what it's like to live there
  • 5+ years of demonstrated data science experience in a fast-paced environment
  • Deep understanding of mathematical statistics
  • Knowledge in machine learning
  • Experience with Clojure / R / Python programming
  • Good writing skills, published papers
  • Public speaking

Nice to have:

  • Knowledge in urban planning, geography and economics
  • Experience in journalism
  • Experience in GIS and spatial analysis
  • Experience in software architecture, in particular Big Data and Functional Programming
