Job Description:

Data Science / Analytics

Senior Data Scientist

Sunnyvale, California, United States

23andMe is seeking an experienced Senior Data Scientist to join our Analytics team. We're looking for someone with excellent analytical skills and a great track record applying them to improve the consumer experience. In this role, you will partner directly with the Product and Marketing teams to help identify opportunity areas, scope business problems, and move the business forward using data and analysis.

Who we are

Since 2006, 23andMe's mission has been to help people access, understand, and benefit from the human genome. We are a group of passionate individuals pushing the boundaries of what's possible to help turn genetic insight into better health and personal understanding.

What you'll do

Some areas you will work on include:

  • Engagement and growth: our goal is to provide a high-value, dynamic experience that delights our customers. You will play a key role by analyzing customer behavior, designing experiments, and helping our team build awesome, data-driven products.
  • Marketing analytics and attribution: what is the optimal way to allocate spend across various customer acquisition channels? How do we measure the effectiveness of non-digital channels like TV and radio?
  • General data science: the Analytics team at 23andMe is cross-functional and works with many groups across the company to help solve problems in a rigorous, data-driven way. Example applications include forecasting, web analytics, and data visualization.

Our team culture is respectful and collaborative; we place a lot of emphasis on mentorship and growth both within the Analytics team and with our business partners. Strong SQL and R skills are a must for this role (we do not use Python for our analytical code) and experience with Shiny and Google Analytics is a significant plus. If you think you would be a good fit we'd love to hear from you!

What You'll Bring:

  • 5+ years of industry work experience as a senior analyst or data scientist
  • B.S. in statistics, mathematics, business or a related field.
  • Skilled in R and SQL. Google Analytics, tidyverse, Git, Python and AWS are a plus.
  • Excellent communication skills; this role requires regular interaction with business partners across the company.
  • An analytical mindset; you will champion data-driven decision making and help the product and marketing teams identify areas of opportunity to drive business value.
  • Strong data visualization skills.
  • An online sample of your analytical and/or data visualization abilities is greatly appreciated.
