We're looking for a top-tier Senior Data Scientist to help us extract, manipulate, analyze, and interpret data. You’ll play a key role in growing a business through your insights, and you’ll help shape the way a revolutionary new technology is introduced to and adopted by new audiences.

Every one of us shares a common vision: to create the future we want to live in. We need the right people to help us realize that vision.

What we'll accomplish together:
  • Explore, learn and grow Dapper Lab's capacity to mitigate risk in the exciting new world of blockchain and NFTs.
  • Develop effective data approaches that improve user experience across all areas of our product, including customer onboarding, risk, and deliver insights to stakeholders.
  • Analyze customer behaviors, rule effectiveness, risk strategies, fraud and money laundering patterns with the goal of building and refining automated risk rules.
  • Able to identify red flags, suspicious activity, investigate patterns / typologies and work on appropriate solutions from our 'big data' warehouse and disparate external data sources.
  • Work in a cross-functional team that overlaps product, marketing, engineering and Trust & Safety.
  • Establish and maintain effective communication with internal and external stakeholders.
  • Comfortable building relationships across organizations and articulating facts to a diverse audience.

A little about you:
  • Bachelor's degree OR Master's degree in a technical discipline with 5+ year track record of relevant experience.
  • Professional experience leveraging heuristic methods and data science approaches (eg., predictive modeling) to solve problems.
  • Crafty data wrangler with experience working with data engineers and cloud technology (GCP, AWS, Azure, or similar).
  • Data storyteller with ability to present a compelling narrative surrounding data insights to non-technical stakeholders.
  • Strong interpersonal and collaboration skills, advisory and communication experience.
  • Proficiency in Python or R with solid coding skills + top notch mastery with SQL.
  • Any blockchain, crypto, financial institution or payment industry experience would be an asset.
