Jobs of the Week: Data Scientists Edition

Posted by Rob Lewis

Data scientists are considered by some to be the "rockstars" of tech startups today. Unlike rockstars though, data scientists can actually apply for their position.

Looking at the enviable positions of some Canadian data scientists across the country—Tommy Levi at POF, Matt St. John at Lululemon, Pat Byrneat Fatigue Science—we decided to compile a few cool opportunities for the modern data-obsessed gentleperson. They don't always use the exact title "data scientist"—though some certainly, proudly do—but these companies are all looking for the same thing: someone with next-gen ideas who gets excited about working with complex data.

• Trulioo in Vancouver is hiring not only a data scientist, but also a software developer and a data mining specialist. “Our data team at Trulioo is constantly looking for talented data scientists who have strong background in probability, machine learning and big data," explains John Schaub, Trulioo’s Director of Product.

“The right candidate should be excited about working on difficult problems and want to help build advanced machine learning algorithms to collect and classify billions of cyber identities in order to make the Internet a safer place," he added.

• HootSuite in Vancouver is seeking a business intelligence data scientist, among nearly 100 other positions. Voted BC's Best Company to Work for in 2012 and Techvibes Employer of the Year in 2013, the social media company is looking for "a technically and analytically strong individual with amazing logical problem solving abilities to mine our data to support better business decisions."

• Rubikloud in Toronto claims that "being a data scientist at Rubikloud is different than being a data scientist anywhere else"—and it's hiring one right now. The company says data science is "core" to its products, making whoever scores this role an integral part of Rubikloud's team.
