We are looking for a talented data scientist to join our team. You will contribute to the predictive modeling used throughout Yobs to assess behavioral strengths from video interviews based on NLP, psychoacoustics and facial expression while auditing algorithms for potential bias and optimizing solutions for faster, more robust analyses.

* Apply statistical and machine learning techniques to identify trends in data

* Work directly with CTO to deliver scalable, secure and robust software solutions on AWS

Requirements
* 2+ years of hands-on experience in machine learning: building ML models with SciPy, Scikit-learn, Pandas, and NumPy
* 2+ years of experience in Python: extensive knowledge of programming best practices and experience with developing production-ready ml services
* Hungry to join a fast-growing, well funded early-stage startup

* Embodiment of our core company values of motivation, positivity, curiosity, humility and integrity, and buy-in for our company mission of eliminating bias in hiring 

* Great communication skills
* Willingness to live and work in the Los Angeles metro area

Nice to Haves:

* Interest in issues of transparency and fairness in AI

Benefits
:

* Flexible paid time off 

* Stock option plan
