Want to build a product that uses data to see & make sense of the future?

If you are passionate about data science & wish to use data to create innovative products that clients love, we want to talk with you!

At CB Insights we build products that help clients make sense of the future & drive their businesses forward using data. Our system retrieves large amounts of structured & unstructured data & uses scientific methods to extract knowledge & insights from that data. We present those analytics through a sophisticated, dynamic user interface which enables our clients to find answers to their most important questions.

As a Data Scientist at CB Insights, you will explore & work with large data sets & use your experience in Machine Learning & Natural Language Processing (NLP) to extract unique insights that become features on our platform. This involves working on a wide range of problems including text classification, entity extraction, topic modeling, recommender systems & others.

You will be part of a high impact R&D team with clear ownership & passion to form the future. The algorithms the team develops lead directly to new products & services we offer as a business. We want you to learn & understand the drivers of our business deeply & be able to explain your approach to your team & to others at the company.
