Lead Data Scientist (Remote)
Company: GrowthBook (YC W22)
Posted on: January 15, 2022
Here at GrowthBook we are building an open source A/B testing
platform and transforming the way product decisions are made. The
top 1% of companies spend thousands of hours making their own
highly custom A/B testing platforms. We've created GrowthBook to
give all companies the power and flexibility of a custom in-house
experimentation system without having to build it themselves.
The world of product development is increasingly moving towards
data-driven decision making, and the best way to objectively
measure the impact of a product is with A/B testing. Top companies
already know this, and test everything they ship. As these methods
spread, A/B testing will increasingly be part of all product
development processes, and will require a new set of tools which
are highly integrated and customized to the product and data.
GrowthBook is that platform.
Since we launched in May 2021, we've added over 1,500 stars on
GitHub, and we are the most popular active open source
experimentation platform. We're used by hundreds of companies, and
are working closely with fast-growing and large early adopters to
help shape our product.
Our platform is built using modern tech by very experienced
engineers, and backed by top investors. We believe in open source
and product-led growth, and we're focused on building something
awesome that our users love.
GrowthBook is an equal opportunity employer, and is committed to
creating an inclusive, supportive environment for all
We regret that we cannot sponsor employment visas at this time.
