About the role:

Do you try to explain causation vs. correlation in random social situations?

We understand - data science is in our DNA, too! At Braavo, we're making a bold statement: banks look into the past, but we're looking into the future. We’re lending money based on where an app development business is going, not where it’s been. Leveraging deep integrations with the app stores, ad networks and mobile analytics platforms, we’re reinventing how credit is measured for the businesses shaping our mobile world.

Our data science team is operating at the cutting edge of a revolution in the financial technologies ecosystem - one which is challenging the fundamental assumptions of how modern businesses should be measured, and who should be the ones doing the measurement. ​We're growing fast and need intelligent, agile data scientists to help us expand and diversify our models. With tens of thousands of data sets at your disposal and hundreds of platform integrations with which to acquire more, keeping busy will definitely not be a problem. Oh, and when we say "data science", we're really talking about predictive analytics, machine learning, advanced statistics and any other methodology necessary to solve the business problems at hand.

- You've got 3+ years applied professional experience, preferably in a startup environment
