About Stripe Partners

We help technology-led businesses invent better futures by creating products, services and business models that drive sustainable growth

We’re a growing organisation with offices in London and Barcelona. Our team is made up of 30+ researchers and strategists with diverse backgrounds across anthropology, business consultancy, digital product development, data and design. We specialise in the interactions between people and technology, combining approaches from social and data science to give companies a foundational understanding of the world, their customers and their organisations.

About the Data Scientist role

We’re looking for an energetic and ambitious Data Scientist to join the team at a time of significant growth. In this role you will take on project leadership responsibilities for analysis with support from the directors and will help contribute to the development of our social and data science integration.

You will be a thoughtful, well-read thinker who can make good judgements about the combination of methods best applied to solve specific problems. You will help build our integration of disciplines across social science and data science by contributing to thinking about how to do this, and by practically building products, processes and ways to achieve this. You will be expected to take ownership of standalone pieces within this development.

You will have a very good understanding of data science methods and tools, and ideally you will be experienced in working with big data. Stripe Partners works with the world’s leading technology businesses including Google, Facebook, Spotify and Intel. You will be excited at the prospect of applying your skills to answering some of the biggest questions at these organisations.

You will have

  • 2+ years’ experience as a data scientist/analyst.
  • Exceptional analytical skills. Demonstrable ability to make good judgements about what sort of analysis to conduct to solve specific problems
  • Experience in applying multiple types of data science methods in solving problems for organisations and translating analysis into insights that are compelling and that clients understand clearly
  • Excellent knowledge of statistics (e.g. hypothesis testing, regression analysis etc.).  
  • Exceptional coding skills: experienced in R (dplyr, ggplot) or Python (pandas, NumPy and Matplotlib/seaborn) 
  • Experience using data visualisation methods and tools - we aim to do high-quality, rigorous work and then present this in ways that make insights compelling 
  • Capability of self-learning - can learn new analytical and visualisation methods quickly.
  • Excellent people skills and an ability to work constructively with internal teams and clients to get great results in situations of ambiguity

Desirable skills

  • A good understanding of technology and the tech sector
  • Experienced in conducting surveys, experiments or A/B testing
  • Knowledgeable in working with big data 
  • A good understanding of building and applying machine learning models
  • Experienced in applying NLP methods to examine texts
