Join us as we continue to bring BetterUp to more people everywhere, and create impactful change for our members and for you.

We’re looking for an experienced Machine Learning Engineer and data scientist who cares deeply about their craft, and who wants to use their skills to bring about positive change in the world while working in a high-performing organization. At BetterUp, the opportunities to apply ML for Social Good are ever-expanding, ranging from developing personalization systems that meet someone where they're at and help them reach their full potential to understanding multimodal human-to-human communication and what makes effective coaching through state-of-the-art natural language processing, computer vision, and audio signal processing.

We're looking for someone who is comfortable in the rapidly changing nature of a startup environment but also adept at moving relentlessly forward: doing what needs to be done to unblock projects that truly deliver value to our users. At BetterUp we delight in supporting and pushing each other to bring out the best in our colleagues, and would love someone to join the team who shares our passions for empathy, excellence, and continuous improvement. We also deeply understand that a key to peak performance is balance, and our culture is focused on providing the support our people need to be able to bring their whole selves to bear in service of our mission. 

Responsibilities:

  • Data product engineer: Build and deploy machine learning models into production designed for operational excellence and rapid iteration/optimization.

  • Applied behavioral scientist: Advance the understanding of behavior change and interventions by measuring quantitative and qualitative signals across a breadth of psychographic signals.
  • Act as an owner: It’s not done until it’s in production.  Adept at moving projects forward and able to unblock projects regardless of the role on the project.
  • Do less, deliver more: Familiar with the terms YAGNI and yak shaving?  Focus your efforts on high impact initiatives that really move the needle.
  • Impress yourself: We hold ourselves to quality above and beyond something that “just gets it done”.  Each line of code is an opportunity to blend craftsmanship with playfulness.
  • Collaborate without ego: Willing to take on roles small or large in order to further the mission at hand.
  • Stay on your edge: Continuously learning and applying emerging technologies.  Pushing yourself and your team to new heights.
