Posted on Tuesday, November 21, 2023

Patreon is the best place for creators to fire up their fandoms, share exclusive work, and turn their passions into lasting creative businesses. Over 250,000 podcasters, writers, musicians, artists, and other creative people use Patreon to reach their biggest fans directly and earn an income for the value they provide. Creators can offer paid memberships that unlock access to exclusive work and community, or sell individual digital items from their own Patreon shops.

Ultimately, our goal is simple: fund the creative class. And we’re leaders in that space, having sent over $3.5 billion to creators since our founding. We’re continuing to invest heavily in building the best creator tools with the best team in the creator economy, and are looking for a Data Scientist to support our mission.

This role is based in San Francisco or in New York and open to those who are able to be in-office 2 days per week on a hybrid work model.

About the Role

  • You’ll work in lock step with your cross-functional team to build product features that help creators improve their membership monetization.

  • You’ll conduct quantitative research to inform product strategy and opportunities, design metrics to help track goals and make decisions, devise learning methods (including experiments) to test hypotheses, and work closely with our machine learning and data engineering teams on building MVP user-facing data products.

  • You'll translate data into actionable insights and communicate your technical work to the data team, your cross-functional partners, executive leadership, and the rest of the company.

About You

  • You have 2+ years of experience helping product teams make great decisions with data.

  • You have strong statistical skills and have solid analytical thinking. You ask the right questions and strive to see beyond the numbers to understand what an analysis represents in terms of real-world applications.

  • You have experience making tradeoffs between speed and accuracy.

  • You are a SQL expert and have experience in Python or R to perform statistical analyses.

  • You have a track record of building strong relationships with product, engineering, research, and design teammates.

  • You have a growth mindset and aspire to continuously improve your soft and technical skills.

  • You are a great communicator with a love for clarity and simplicity.
