Data Science at Alloy At Alloy we are looking for data scientists at various levels of experience. Their main responsibility is data quality in the Alloy infrastructure and its first-party products. This will require developing quantitative metrics to compare coverage and accuracy of diverse data sources. You will need to be familiar with statistical and probabilistic techniques for matching incomplete data sets and resolving conflicts, and will need to be able to conduct analyses into the hundreds of millions of rows, using Python or R. You will need a strong grasp of experiment design and evidence-based methods of inference. You will sometimes be asked to help Alloy customers with upstream data quality issues, and will need consulting skills such as careful listening and constructive feedback. There is room to build a multidisciplinary team within the data science team, with specialized methodologists and data science generalists. A background in political data is always a plus, but not a requirement for these positions, since we want to draw experience from a diverse set of industries and backgrounds. We are happy to hire great candidates that are strong in some of these skills and ready to learn others.
Inclusive Hiring Practices
Alloy values diverse team composition and an inclusive work environment. We provide general descriptions of our job requirements to be helpful, but individual roles will vary and we encourage all candidates to apply if they meet a significant number of our requested qualifications. It is not necessary that your resume check every box, as long as you are willing to learn.
