A private & free online dating app for singles looking for real relationships

At the core of Coffee Meets Bagel is our matching algorithm. Our users love how CMB curates perfect matches for them every day. We are looking for someone with experience building data models from large datasets in order to take our matching algorithm to the next level as we continue to grow our userbase!

This will involve refining existing models and proposing new ones. You will work closely with our CEO, CTO and the data team to implement your ideas and deploy them to production.

For anyone who is driven by challenging data problems, this position offers a unique opportunity. There is still a lot of room for innovation in this domain, and we welcome bold new ideas for how we can match people more effectively.

This position is a full-time position based at the CMB HQ in downtown SF right by Union Square!

You should have:

  • Masters, PhD, or equivalent industry experience in a scientific field
  • 3+ years of industry experience implementing machine learning algorithms with large datasets
  • Expertise in at least one statistical or data analysis tool such as Python / Pandas, R, MATLAB, etc.
