What you’ll be doing


Envato is split into four major business units which support our customers, authors, internal platforms and new ventures. Our data science team is a centralised function sitting within the Platform division, reporting to the Analytics Director. This new and growing area is taking on greenfield work to drive cutting-edge solutions that will make our products more intelligent  across everything from customer lifetime value & churn prediction, to personalisation through robust innovations in search & recommendation engines. Data is central to our growth strategy, and as a result, we’re scaling quickly in this area.


As a Senior Data Scientist at Envato, you will work closely with senior stakeholders, the Analytics Director, Product Managers, Data Scientists, Engineers and the Business Intelligence unit to analyse data, highlight opportunities for the team. You will play an instrumental role in understanding and predicting customer behaviour through predictive modelling and segmentation, translating outcomes into clear and actionable insights. 


You’ll be on the hunt to problem solve and identify root causes of positive and negative trends. You will take part in planning and measuring company KPI’s, supporting business goals such as churn prevention and optimising customer search.  Having the ability to manipulate and analyse large, complex data sets and turning them into actionable business insights will be pivotal to this position. You will also be required to educate and supervise model implementation and adoption, driving our online customer and revenue growth. (YAY!)


What we’re looking for

  • Strong experience working in digital analytics or data science
  • BA in statistics/math/computer science, or another quantitative field would be an advantage
  • Experience in building and maintaining customer based models such as LTV, churn and customer segmentation
  • Experience with search & recommendation engines is highly desirable
  • Exposure to data mining and machine learning
  • Extensive knowledge of R and SQL (but we're fairly agnostic so if you love Python or another programming language, we'd still like to hear from you)
  • Experience with building models from scratch and implementing them across company
  • Ability to translate problems into definable actions
  • Experience with big data would be an advantage
  • Ability to build effective relationships with individuals across all levels of an organisation
  • Strong demonstrated alignment to Envato’s values


What we offer

  • A fantastic culture of creatively minded, hard working people who are passionate about Envato and being part of its growth and success
  • Flexible working conditions – we want you to love your work but also your life outside of Envato
  • We actively work on creating a safe, inclusive environment free from discrimination
  • A fast paced and progressive environment where everyone has regular interaction with teammates and Envato community members from all over the world!
