About Team Go

We use technology to inspire and empower humanity, and to enrich real-life relationships with friends, family, and community because we believe in a world where social technology unites us and makes us happier. We started on this mission by putting together a team of people to fix social isolation and bring people together to do things they love.

By looking at how people make plans with one another, we built the Go app around peoples’ existing behaviors, like sharing plans with our friends, inviting friends to collaborate, finding time to hang out--and making it all happen in real time, in real life.

We also want the local businesses in your community to be part of the conversation, which supercharges the Go app and helps you find what you love to do and do it with the people you already know.

The Role

This is a high precision position. A successful Senior Data Scientist, specializing in measurements and visualization, is a person who loves exact science. Since this position is equal parts statistics, data management, and data visualization, there are many touchpoints to manage at all times.

The Senior Measurements and Visualization Data Scientist at Go will have a deep understanding of requirements gathering, stakeholder management, project oversight, and technical implementation. This position requires a rare combination of management and build capability. As a result of being an early hire in the Measurements unit, the successful applicant will have a heavy contributory hand in both the tools selected and protocols in place as the unit is fully staffed.

This job will not be easy- we are looking for a candidate who likes to solve hard problems and build out their own team.

The right candidate will have the right combination of inventiveness, managerial skills, and technical know-how.
