Senior Data Scientist at Enigma.io

Our public data platform is the world’s largest.

Job description

At Enigma we are passionate about the transformative potential of data and are creating the next generation of tools to unlock this potential. Data science at Enigma covers an exciting diversity of topics and applications, from developing products with engineering teams, to data exploration for client consultations, to collaborating with public agencies to save lives. As a Senior Data Scientist with the Analytics group your contributions will reach the whole company. You will guide analytical projects from conception to completion with quantitative rigor and acuity. And you will not only work with our next-generation technology, you’ll help shape this technology to solve real-world data challenges.

The ideal person will enhance our team by combining analytical skills and business sense to develop data-driven products. This hybrid of data science and product development requires a talent for communicating and connecting with technical and non-technical collaborators alike. Ideally you will have experience bringing data products to market on a tight timeline, where “market” might include commercial settings, open source contributions, or collaborative research. We value data scientists who can quickly implement elegant solutions to complex problems. While you are excited by cutting-edge methods, your fascination with these technologies does not distract you from straightforward solutions. Not least, you should share our enthusiasm for using public data to support better decisions at all levels of government and enterprise.

At Enigma, we started from the realization that there is an enormous quantity of hidden knowledge locked away in data silos and obscure formats, just waiting to be released. Our mission is to provide the public with a platform to explore things as diverse as SEC filings, government spending contracts, liens, patents, asset ownership, bills of lading, and much more. This data was born of the people, so we’ve made it available to the public at no cost. We regularly collaborate with not-for-profits, governments, journalists, and many other committed and curious people to help put data to good use. Enigma also helps organizations and individuals fuse, organize, and explore data to make smarter decisions.​​ Within our enterprise division, we are building data discovery and analytics products that make it simple for organizations to liberate their own private data, empowering them to make smarter business decisions.
