Data Scientist

United States



The Opportunity: 

Anthology offers the largest EdTech ecosystem on a global scale, supporting over 150 million users in 80 countries. The company’s mission is to provide dynamic, data-informed experiences to the global education community so that learners and educators can achieve their goals.

The role of Data Scientist is essential to the decision making of the organization.  Raw data is inherently not consumable; the data scientist transforms this data into actionable summaries and models that empower our member campuses to make data-informed decisions.  Additionally, the data scientist provides various company teams with evidence, rooted in data, to strengthen business decisions.  Without Data Scientists, the informing power and action potential of unmined data never impacts decisions.



The Data Scientist is responsible for collaborating with and supporting our product-development teams with insights gained from analyzing data from multiple sources. The Data Scientist will gain experience using internal and institutional data to find opportunities for product and process optimization and will also learn how to test the effectiveness of different courses of action. Additionally, the Data Scientist will grow in their ability to build and deploy statistical modeling—using a variety of methods, algorithms, and technical tools. The right candidate will have a passion for discovering how to uncover solutions hidden in data sets while working with stakeholders to improve business outcomes.



Specific responsibilities will include:

  • Discovering opportunities to drive user and business value from the intersection of user needs, data, and analytical methods
  • Mining and analyzing numeric and text data from databases and data lakes to distill and communicate patterns
  • Sharing and presenting findings effectively and creatively to internal teams and to our member campuses
  • Coordinating with product-development teams to develop and deploy productionized models
  • Assessing the effectiveness and accuracy of new data sources



The Candidate: 

Required skills/qualifications: 

  • BA/BS degree or higher required or equivalent applied experience
  • Experience using statistical computer languages (R and/or Python) to clean, shape, and draw insights from data sets
  • Experience visualizing, reporting, and presenting data for stakeholders



Preferred skills/qualifications: 

  • Experience querying relational databases using SQL
  • Experience using a variety of machine learning techniques (e.g., clustering, decision tree learning, artificial neural networks, random forest, etc.)
  • Experience creating, deploying, and maintaining predictive models
  • Experience leveraging the Microsoft Azure development stack for scaling solutions
  • Completion of data science certificate or certification
  • Experience working in higher education
  • Experience working with Big Data technologies
