Data Scientist

Looking for a challenge with purpose & meaning? At 29k you will find a role where you can help a non-profit scale-up take the next ambitious step in bringing personal growth to the world, for free.

How do you transform peoples' lives?

We are looking for a Data Scientist, to join our non-profit, purpose driven team at 29k – and help us make sense of something very complicated; human behaviour & the mind.

What we believe

At 29k we believe that individuals have the capacity to change the world for the better. And if we can unleash people's ability to live more meaningful lives they, in‌ ‌turn, will improve the world through their actions. 

We believe that by combining the best tools psychology has to offer, with human connection, we can have a profound impact on the mental growth and wellbeing of adults.

Who we are

29k is a non-profit initiated by the Norrsken Foundation and Ekskäret Foundation, tasked with building a free and open platform for personal development available for all. We are backed with research partners at Karolinska Institute, Harvard University and University of London and have a 5-year goal of improving the lives of 5 million people, and a long term goal of reaching a threshold where we see systemic change in the world.

We are a dedicated team of skilled and motivated people who truly believe the world can and needs to be changed for the better. 

Our app was recently soft-launched to the App Store and Google Play – and we’re soon launching our first personal growth course to millions of ambassador followers around the world, in the ambition that we can positively change as many lives as possible.

What you'll do

As our first dedicated Data Scientist, these are some of the areas you'll get to focus on:

  • Goals, KPIs & reporting - how do we ensure we're on track towards our long-term mission and have the correct data to validate this?
  • Data infrastructure - what are the best tools to support to support the team and how do we ensure they scale with us? 
  • Transformation - how can you support our world-class academic team and product team in identifying drivers of psychometric effect?
  • Users & market - how are our users interfacing with us and are we reaching the right audiences?
  • Processes & education - how can do you maximize the output of your colleagues and their analytical understanding?

Who you are

For you to be successful in this role, you need curiosity around personal growth and be willing to learn & grow, as a means to building empathy for the kind of product we are building and how deep, meaningful and difficult this kind of inner work is. 

  • You’re interested in personal growth and doing something meaningful for the world
  • You have knowledge of BI and data visualization tools (i.e. Amplitude, Looker, Tableau)
  • You have a solid grasp on the infrastructure of analytics, and potentially have worked with cloud warehouses
  • You have experience of working with data within a product-centric organization
  • You have a skill for presenting data & condensing insights in meaningful ways

Does this sound like you? We'd love to hear from you.

Or, know someone who would be a perfect fit? Let them know!
