Patreon is hiring a

Senior Data Scientist, Data Foundations

San Francisco, United States

Patreon is the best place for creators to build memberships by providing exclusive access to their work and a deeper connection with their communities. We’re building a content and community platform where creators can engage directly with their fans and monetize their creativity, while maintaining full ownership over the work they make and the communities they create.

We’re leaders in the membership space with 250,000+ active creators and over $3.5 billion paid directly to creators on our platform. Our team is building tools to optimize the creator-to-fan relationship, including native video, enhanced podcasting features, improved creation tools, and new community experiences. We’re continuing to invest heavily in building the most talented team in the Creator Economy and are looking for a Data Scientist focused on Business Intelligence to support our mission.

This role is based in San Francisco or in New York and open to those who are able to be in-office 2 days per week on a hybrid work model.

About the Role

  • You’ll collaborate with leaders across the company to design and implement strategic, operational, and experimentation metrics.
  • You’ll conduct quantitative research to inform business strategy and opportunities.
  • You’ll build the framework for business critical reporting alongside a team of data engineers and product scientists.
  • You'll communicate your work to executive, product, and operational leadership, as well as the rest of the company.
  • You’ll be a trusted partner for the product management, data science, and financial planning and analytics teams to measure progress towards key objectives.

About You

  • You have spent 5+ years helping product or operations teams make great decisions with data, and ideally have experience with executive reporting. 
  • You have solid analytical thinking. You ask the right questions and strive to see beyond the numbers to understand what an analysis represents in terms of real-world applications. 
  • You are a technical polyglot: in addition to being a SQL expert and proficient in at least one data programming language, you can easily pick up new frameworks, tools, and bits of languages as needed. 
  • You are also a data polyglot: you know enough about data engineering, machine learning, statistics, and experimentation to efficiently collaborate with diverse data experts - but you don’t need to be an expert in all these things!
  • You have a track record of building strong relationships with teammates in other functions like product, engineering, operations, finance, research, and/or design.
  • You are an expert communicator with a love for clarity.
