The team includes ex-Google and ex-Atlassian employees and is advised by the former Head of Data Science at LinkedIn. You will work cross functionally and collaborate with Engineers, Data Scientists and Product Managers to bring your insights and ideas to life.

What you'll do:

  • Implement cutting-edge ML technology to create the best recommendation system in the wellbeing/meditation space
  • Scope, design, create, deploy and tune ML models to improve key metrics that drive business value
