Ideal candidates will have expertise with all phases of the application development life cycle in building models that scale over time while balancing accuracy, flexibility, and speed.

You must be able to thrive in an ever changing entrepreneurial environment and not be hindered by ambiguity or competing priorities. This means you are not only able to develop and drive high-level strategic initiatives, but can also roll up your sleeves, dig in, and get the job done. Strategic thinking, maturity, negotiation skills, and the ability to influence are essential to success in this role.
