Data Scientist

We’re looking for exceptional data scientists to help optimize our product offering, growth, and risk management. We're especially looking for hands-on experience of using data science and machine learning to achieve measurable impact, for positions at our office in central Stockholm, Sweden.

Make sense of big data for small businesses

iZettle has established relationships with numerous small business owners around the world, and we have collected a rich set of structured and unstructured data which our Data Science team mines to understand what characterizes a successful business. To wow our customers, and to be a reliable and inspiring partner that truly helps them grow, we leverage data and machine learning to build data products, giving them access to tools, services and insights that traditionally only large companies had access to. We also use the same techniques to optimize our own business and internal workflows.

The data scientist role at iZettle is a perfect match if you:

  • enjoy defining and leading data projects: establish partnerships with stakeholders and product managers in the company to define goals and metrics, gather and analyze data, build and evaluate models, and communicate results and insights
  • like working closely with product teams to ensure models work as expected in production
  • are pragmatic and focused on the product goal, and you get excited about the end results, not just the techniques used to get there
  • have built a number of machine learning solutions in production
  • are good at identifying what is worth spending time on, and what is good-enough
  • enjoy staying on top of the latest in the field (you will get to study the latest relevant research papers, tools and products together with the team as part of your work)
  • naturally evangelize data best practices and what is needed to make machine learning succeed

We hire people. Not CVs.

Managing all of the above takes strong problem solving and communication skills. We believe you have

  • at least 3 years of experience developing machine learning models using open source tools, ideally in a smaller, fast-paced company
  • an advanced degree (M.S., PhD.) in computer science, statistics, mathematics, or similar technical or quantitative discipline
  • deep understanding of modern machine learning techniques
  • strong programming skills in Python (pandas, numpy, scikit-learn, TensorFlow, PyTorch, ...), with extra plus for R, Scala, etc.
  • experience with relational databases and SQL
  • great communication skills and that you're comfortable explaining complex results, models and methods to both technical and non-technical audiences

We wold be impressed if you have experience of frameworks such as Apache Spark, Apache Beam/Google DataFlow or Apache Flink, and designing and/or implementing ETL and data processing.

We work exclusively in English, so Swedish language skills are not needed.

Small minds never helped small businesses

It takes originality and an open mind to start a small business.  That’s why small minds have no place in ours.

We’re proud to be an equal opportunities employer, a place where everyone can benefit from equal access to professional development and bring their whole personality to work.

We’re iZettle.
