Udemy for Business is a curated solution of business-relevant and technical courses delivered through a simple platform to provide a business’s employees with the most engaging learning experience. Udemy data scientists focus on using a combination of both quantitative methods and business intuition to find actionable insights that drive key business decisions.

As a Senior Data Scientist, you will be partnering with business leaders, marketers, designers, and engineers to identify, scope, and execute on data-driven analyses to drive business decisions. You will serve as a UFB marketing subject matter expert, especially while working with other data scientists, and act as a data evangelist to create a data-driven culture across the company. Success in this role requires a combination of business intuition, practical data analysis experience, and strong communication and collaboration skills.

  • What key metrics can marketing levers help drive?

Here is what you will be doing:

  • Collaborate with stakeholders to inform business and UFB marketing decisions
  • Effectively communicate and present to both technical and non-technical audiences
  • Provide technical mentorship to others
  • Design and analyze standard experiments and conduct ad hoc analyses
  • Define metrics and build dashboards to track UFB marketing and business health
  • Continuously improve the quality and accessibility of data
  • Knowledge and willingness to use the right tool (a scripted model, a dashboard, a presentation) for each analysis

We Are Excited About You Because You Have:

  • 4+ years of relevant work experience, or 2+ years of relevant work experience with a post-graduate education such as MS or PhD in a quantitative field
  • Ability to communicate effectively with non-technical stakeholders
  • Strong business intuition and judgment
  • Strong level data storytelling and data visualization ability
  • Broad knowledge of applied statistics, experimental design, and causal inference
  • Expert SQL ability and proficiency with 1+ programming languages (e.g., R or Python)
