IDEO is looking for Data Scientists to join our team around the world. We’re looking for self-starters who can creatively apply data science in the real world and continually learn new things (both technical and non-technical) independently.
Data science is a new craft within IDEO and part of the role will include helping to scale our data science chops globally. Though we’re hiring for all of our locations, we’re looking for data scientists who are excited about being mobile, and working with our community around the world.
IDEO is growing its data science expertise as part of its new offering: Design for Augmented Intelligence (D4AI). Since the growth of our data science discipline was catalyzed by the acquisition of Datascope, most of us are based in Chicago for now.
Data scientists will make the biggest impact by designing and deploying intelligent systems, products, services, and experiences. They will take full advantage of the potential of augmented intelligence to build new ventures, create new markets, and unlock new value for customers. We count on our data scientists to lead their project teams in data-driven thinking and provide expertise on the positive potential of intersecting intelligent technologies with human-centered design.
IDEO is a place unlike any other. It’s a place where you can solve complex challenges for our clients or the organization, alongside thoughtful individuals who lead with curiosity, empathy, and optimism. Sure we work hard, but we also intentionally craft moments that allow our community to pause, create, and connect. We encourage our community to bring their whole selves to work, respect the need for work-life balance, and allow for autonomy in the design process and your career.
We're looking for people who demonstrate visible experience writing reusable code (probably mostly Python) to do exploratory data analysis, simulation, data visualization, and various machine learning and optimization techniques.
This could mean a portfolio of open source contributions, personal projects, presentations, or other things that show that you were passionate about a subject, took some initiative to learn about it, and applied it to a real problem.
Tell us about a project on which you wrote data analysis code as part of a team. What went well on the project and what would you do differently next time? URLs to examples (slides, reports, apps, code) are encouraged.
