Senior Data Scientist

Title: Senior Data Scientist

Location: Remote

Hummingbird is a remote-first, fully distributed team united by the shared mission of helping fight financial crime. Since our launch in 2017, we’ve helped major financial institutions and tech-savvy trailblazers alike (e.g. Stripe, Affirm, etc.) orchestrate their compliance programs through our thoughtfully designed, intuitive SaaS product. We believe finding and stopping financial crime is a problem rooted in code, language and design, so we built the product that the heroes doing this work deserve.

We are customer-obsessed, and we love building and shipping great products. We set a high bar, challenge our assumptions, seek diverse opinions, and support each other to do our best work.

We do our best to write inclusive, descriptive and accurate job descriptions, but we’re not always perfect. If you’re interested in the role, we’d love to hear from you even if you don’t feel like you meet everything we’re looking for. We’re always iterating and improving, and it’s possible that your experience is even more impactful than we could have imagined.

What we’re looking for:

  • A data scientist with a history of taking projects from the earliest stages through successful rollout to production
  • Someone who is excited by the prospect of pioneering data as a practice at a fast growing startup and who is unafraid to dig in to discover what is possible
  • A flexible self starter that will cut across organizational lines to understand the business and identify the most valuable work
  • Someone who brings a pragmatic approach to problem solving, favoring simplicity and shortening delivery cycles
  • Experience building models with sensitive data, including best practices for de-identification
  • Creativity and flexibility to find ways to work within the constraints of data privacy and compliance

What’s in it for you:

  • The chance to help build from the ground up. The hires we’re making now are foundational to our growth as a company, so you will have an opportunity to help shape the future of Hummingbird.
