Join the team and be responsible for building high quality features for statistical analysis for our data science app, and communicating to users the benefits of using these features.

About the Job

You will be responsible for building high quality features for statistical analysis and communicating to users the benefits of using these features. Most of your work will be open-source.

Your day-to-day responsibilities will include:

  • Creating analysis and visualization features for Displayr. Log in to www.displayr.com and see Insert > Analysis for the features currently developed, and https://github.com/Displayr for some of the code. Most of this work is done in R, but C++, JavaScript/d3, and C# are also sometimes used.
  • Write blog posts describing how the analysis and visualization features work. See https://www.displayr.com/blog/.
  • Regression testing of code.
  • Documentation.

About You
  • A quant Ph.D (e.g., Statistics, Econometrics, Biometrics, Psychometrics, Marketing Science).
  • Strong understanding of statistical theory: statistical testing and computation.
  • Extensive experience writing code to implement statistical techniques in an industry or academic setting. The ideal candidate would have developed R packages and/or visualization code in D3.
  • Very strong written and strong verbal communication skills.
  • Attention to detail.

Benefits

Unlike at other companies, you won’t just be a cog in the machine. Everyday you’ll be able to see the decisions you make have a tangible impact. You’ll be helping people who never dreamed they ‘could do’ data science.

But that’s not all. Along with a healthy compensation package in the range of $100K to $140K, (depending on experience/expertise), we also offer share options in the business. While Displayr grows, you’ll grow too.

While we work hard and always push for awesome, our workplace culture is pretty relaxed. Our chic converted warehouse head office in Glebe, Sydney is joined by offices in London, UK and Chicago, US. And we’re just getting started.

So, nice job! You’ve already picked the right start up.

We believe that a workplace that welcomes a variety of perspectives, experiences and backgrounds is important and will only push us to be better. We never discriminate on the basis of gender, age, ethnic background, disability status, religion, or sexual orientation.
