The Company

Dover is the modern recruiting department for the world's top companies. We combine domain expertise with best-in-class automation to help companies hire the best talent for their open roles.

Recruiting is a $50B industry in the US, but recruiting departments and agencies still have incredibly manual processes. Recruiters spend countless hours on administrative work, so they have less time to do what they do best: pitch and close candidates.

We've built a better way. Our advanced ML-powered matching software finds the perfect candidates for a particular role, and our NLP outreach system reaches out to those candidates in a highly personalized way. We're automating the entire recruiting stack, from sourcing to scheduling.

The Role

Dover is looking to hire our first data scientist. As a pioneer in the role, you'll have an outsized impact on our business & the chance to define data science at Dover.

Reporting directly to our CTO, your day to day work will involve interfacing with our engineering team and other C-level leadership to implement high leverage projects like improving our deep learning models. This is an opportunity for someone hands on to have total ownership over what projects you work on, and you deliverables. Depending on your desired area of focus, you can also help inform how we collect data and our data infrastructure.

Unlike many other companies, machine learning & data science is at the core of what we deliver, so you'll be using statistics and applying state of the art ML techniques to improve our core product. Your contributions will ultimately optimize customer experience and help us to figure out feature & product priority.

The Responsibilities

  • Build and improve machine learning and deep learning models
  • Work with the engineering team to ship models into production
  • Identify potential projects that could drive improvements to efficiency
  • Work independently to prototype new models & features
  • Being knowledgable about how to apply best practices to our data, not reinventing the wheel
  • Build playbooks and best practices to help us scale

About You

  • You've been working in data science/machine learning for 2+ years
  • Proficient in Python or a similar scripting language
  • You are comfortable doing feature engineering, scripting, and generally getting your hands dirty
  • You like moving fast and getting things done
  • Are an excellent communicator; verbal & written — with the ability to work cross-functionally
  • Experience applying machine learning or deep learning techniques to real world problems
