We seek individuals who are comfortable working in a challenging, fast paced environment and are extremely self-motivated. Data science projects are often complex, so we hire individuals who are comfortable wrangling with unstructured, difficult problems and are comfortable thinking outside the box and taking initiative. Those who enjoy tackling complex tasks in a collaborative environment are well-suited to a position on our team.
Qualified applicants have backgrounds in computer science, statistics, mathematics, or related fields and are enthusiastic about pursuing a career in data science. Applicants must have solid quantitative and computational skills and have a working knowledge of languages such as R, SQL, or Python.
To supplement learning and development, members of the DSDP engage in coursework through the Five College consortium and graduate-level courses at UMass Amherst in Computer Science and Statistics while working full time. Only those up to the task of balancing rigorous coursework with challenging project work should apply.
We accept applications from early career professionals and graduating students from undergraduate and graduate programs.
Applicants must be able to work in the US without sponsorship now or in the future.
