Partiful's mission is to cultivate friendships through social events.

We believe parties (and other social events) are the most effective way to meet new people and make friends. Our product helps you throw incredible events, starting with memorable party pages that make it easy to plan & communicate with guests — download the app to see how it works!

We're building new ways to streamline planning, connect meaningfully in the real world, and make connections between friends-of-friends. Our ultimate vision is to power everything you do in-person with your friends, eliminating the friction of bringing your most memorable experiences to life. You can read more about our mission in The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic, Fortune, Modern Retail, and Mashable (who called us one of the top 10 trends that changed the internet in 2022).

Our company is backed by top-tier investors including Andreessen Horowitz and Google Ventures, and advised by the founders of some of the most successful consumer social products ever made. We're a small team of 20 people, with backgrounds including Facebook, Palantir, Google, Snapchat, and many more.

The Role

We’re looking for a business-oriented data scientist to help accelerate our growth and product initiatives. Your work will span across the entire organization and have company-wide impact, informing (and generating) our most important projects.

We're an NY- and LA-based team with a hybrid in-person model, in the office 3 days a week. Our data stack is Amplitude, Hex (SQL, Python), and Javascript (not required).

In this role, you will:

  • Identify opportunities to improve our data infrastructure, processes, and tooling

  • Collaborate with the engineering team to ensure data quality and integrity

  • Work closely with Product Engineering, Business Operations, and Community teams to understand their data needs and provide analytical support

  • Make key data decisions across the company

You’re likely a good fit if you:

  • Have a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Data Science, Statistics, Computer Science, Mathematics, or a related field

  • Have 3+ years of experience in data science or a related role (ideally at both startups and larger companies), staying long enough to see the impact of your analytical decisions

  • Are proficient in SQL and Python (Javascript a plus)

  • Have experience with machine learning frameworks and libraries

  • Are familiar with data tools such as Amplitude and Hex

  • Have experience using data to drive business decisions

  • Communicate complex data findings in a clear and concise manner to non-technical stakeholders

  • Work collaboratively with other data

  • Elegantly structure and decomp complex data problems

  • Are comfortable with ambiguity

  • Generate quick yet thoughtful solutions when faced with constraints

  • Put ego aside when making decisions

  • Bonus points if you have full-stack engineering experience -- we'd love to see you building user-facing features around your work!

What we offer:

  • 401(k) with up to 6% matching

  • Comprehensive health, dental, and vision insurance for you and all your dependents (FSAs and HSA plans available)

  • Free OneMedical membership, telehealth, and virtual mental health services
