Job Description

Droste is a consultancy that leverages data and analytics to transform the way our clients solve their most critical business problems. The software we create has been used to predict failures in power plants, identify the likelihood of a person defaulting on a loan, understand retail customer preferences, and provide low-latency exchange rates for 100s of fiat and crypto currencies.

Though supported by data engineers, data wranglers and fellow data scientists, you are a field agent immersed in the client's domain and responsible for the project from start to finish. We're a small outfit, so everyone on the team is nimble, but we love sharing and make sure everyone gets a chance to pick up the latest skills in the field.

Our clients are in finance, eCommerce, logistics, and have interesting challenges and datasets. So if you're looking for variety in your work, you'd be working on exploratory data analysis, data cleansing, data modeling, visualization design, and storytelling across all of these domains.

Primarily you would be working with Python and SQL databases for most of your engagements, but having familiarity or experience with R and NoSQL databases would be helpful because our clients use a wide array of technologies.
