About the role:

We are currently looking for Senior Data Scientists to join our Client Analysis team to be based anywhere remotely in the USA.

In this unique role as Data Scientist, you will leverage your experience developing algorithms and analyzing massive data sets to tell data stories while also working in partnership with the go-to-market team to drive revenue generation for Socure by ensuring that potential and existing customers can understand - through deep analysis - the benefit and value of Socure’s products throughout the pre and post sales cycle.

This is an excellent opportunity for a Data Scientist who thrives when they're able to communicate a data story to an audience (tech and non-tech), and who is not satisfied only working behind the scenes.

  • Provide thought leadership and be the customer’s voice for building the next generation of Socure’s core models and product

  • Create tools and automated workflows to improve the speed, accuracy, and reproducibility of our analysis

  • Partner closely with GTM teams (Sales, Solution Consultants, Account Managers and Technical Account Managers) to derive creative ways of analysis and identify opportunities for upsell and product optimization

  • Build ML models when it is advantageous to explore different approaches over the established models in production


  • You have a degree in a quantitative field, or equivalent work experience - advanced degree is preferred.

  • You have 5+ years experience in data science, data analysis, or analytics engineering

  • You have extensive theoretical and practical understanding of state-of-the-art supervised and unsupervised machine learning methods

  • You know how to write clean, performant code in Python, and have 2+ years experience working with massive real-life datasets

  • You have experience querying relational databases with SQL

  • You have experience working with cloud tools and technologies in AWS, Azure, Databricks, or GCP

  • You know how to tell compelling stories with data (dashboarding, building interactive data stories and actionable presentations)

  • You are able to explain very complex algorithms such as ML/AI models, and analyses to non-technical audiences

  • You are an excellent verbal and written communicator and are comfortable delivering presentations with clear, complete messages

  • You thrive in a remote startup work environment and are excellent at setting clear goals and holding yourself accountable

  • You have experience in identity verification and fraud prevention (strongly preferred)
