Second Measure | SF Bay Area (San Mateo, CA) | ONSITE (relo ok) | https://secondmeasure.com

Second Measure analyzes credit card data. We process billions of purchases to help investors (VCs and hedge funds) answer questions like:

  - How quickly is Shake Shack growing?
  - Is Lyft gaining or losing market share in Boston?
  - How does Hilton spending change after a customer's first Airbnb stay?
  - (Check out our research blog [1])
We’re an 11-person team comprising mostly engineers and data scientists. 9 of us are technical, and 3 have PhDs. We love solving hard problems with compelling data.

We’re looking for other strong builders, especially those who can grow into leadership roles:

  - Data Scientist / Research Scientist (stats; Python/R/Spark helpful; quantitative PhD preferred)
  - Data Anthropologist (perform novel research and write about it - see our research blog) (note: no job board post)
  - Senior Software Engineer (frontend/backend/full-stack; AWS; Python/JVM; Mesos/Spark/Lambda; D3+ReactJS)
  - Product Designer ("full-stack", from research to prototype to mockup to engineer-ready spec)

Competitive salary and substantial equity. We want our early team to have a large stake in our success.

We launched mid-2015 [2] and have phenomenal traction [3]. We're well-funded [4] by Y Combinator, Foundation Capital, Bessemer Venture Partners, Shasta Ventures, Norwest Venture Partners, and other great investors.

We’re in downtown San Mateo, just minutes from Caltrain and 101.

I'm a founder (mike@). Submit via job board and mention HN, or email jobs@ and CC me.
