Mozilla Senior Data Scientist

Posted on July 24th, 2019

The Role

At Mozilla, we want to make products that keep the Internet open and secure for all. We collect terabytes of data a day from millions of users to guide our decision-making processes. We could use your help.

As a Senior Data Scientist, you will work closely with the product organization. You are an inquisitive thinker who is keen to practice full-stack data science, with experience ranging from designing and engineering data extraction processes to finding patterns and anomalies in data through analytical techniques.  You have strong interest in honing your technical skills further on real-world data. You believe that data science can lead to insights that can guide the future of Mozilla. You will apply your expertise in quantitative analysis, statistical modeling, experimentation and data visualization to see beyond the numbers and understand how our worldwide community experiences our products.

As a Data Scientist at Mozilla: 

  • You design and analyze experiments to understand ecosystems, user behaviors, and long-term trends
  • You build key data sets to empower operational and exploratory analysis
  • You advocate for standard methodologies across the organization
  • You own the definition, evaluation and reporting of key product metrics
  • You communicate narratives with data to many audiences, ranging from product managers to technical leads
  • You sit at the intersection between product, engineering, and leadership to inform, influence, and help execute our product strategy

 

Your Professional Profile

  • Ideally, you have prior experience with Internet data or any large, high-dimensional data set.  Experience comes in all forms and personal projects count. We’ll be especially excited if you have worked end-to-end on a sizeable data-intensive project on a level that you’d see in a graduate degree program in a quantitative or analytical discipline.
  • You have practice with extracting data from a variety of sources using SQL or SQL-like tools (Spark a plus) as well as have performed statistical modeling using Python or R.  You also desire to gain further technical experience on the job.
  • You have excellent communication skills and experience presenting results in a concise manner (e.g. through report-writing or presentations). You are at home helping non-experts understand technical concepts.
  • You have a demonstrated ability to understand stakeholder requirements and iterate on analysis design quickly.
  • You consider contributing to a collaborative and open team culture an important responsibility.
  • Experience working as a Data Scientist in the mobile space (especially on Android products) a plus

Feel good about your work again.

At Mozilla, we’re serving humanity—by maintaining a safe, open internet—while also helping the individual humans employed here to reach their personal and professional goals.
