You will be responsible for managing the educational content creation, including hiring, coordinating and monitoring teachers developing content. You will have to wear the hats of both a teacher and a data scientist simultaneously as you work together with our team and our university/industry partners. From time to time, you will also have to assist with related tasks, such as developing user stories and designing mock-ups, testing the learning platform with students and teachers, and writing up scientific articles for publication. We are growing fast and we are very ambitious. Therefore, we expect you to be extremely motivated, hard-working, entrepreneurial and fast learning. 

Requirements:
– Strong analytical and problem solving skills
– Bachelor’s or Master’s in Data Science, Statistics, Mathematics, or a related field

– Fluency in French 

What we offer:
– An opportunity to make a difference to millions of students around the world
– An opportunity to help build the future of education and write history
– A chance to learn new skills working alongside world-renowned researchers
– A chance to experience the development of a machine learning system end-to-end – A chance to build a publication track record
– A competitive salary and participation in the company’s Employee Stock Option Plan
