Data Science Co-op
Clearbanc co-founders Michele Romanow and Andrew D’Souza knew there had to be a better way to fund your business than staking your house or sacrificing ownership of your company.
Michele and Andrew deeply understand the pains of building a business; Michele bootstrapped five companies, one which was acquired by Groupon, and sits on the other side of the table as a judge on “Dragon’s Den,” Canada’s equivalent of “Shark Tank.” Andrew, meanwhile, has raised hundreds of millions of dollars for multiple startups and is an investor and advisor to many others.
They've seen the broken funding process from all sides, and the idea for Clearbanc was inspired by their own experiences and struggles building companies and working with other entrepreneurs.
Clearbanc has invested in thousands of companies using data science to identify high-growth funding opportunities. This data-driven approach takes the bias out of decision making. Clearbanc has funded 8x more female founders than traditional VCs, and has invested in 43 states in the US in 2019.
WHY WORK WITH US?
We're a company built by founders for founders, and we’re laser focused on our mission to help entrepreneurs succeed. You'll get the chance to work closely with people who have built, scaled and sold companies before.
While we're obsessed with our vision, we don't take ourselves too seriously. We don’t know all the answers, so we’re constantly experimenting and learning together.
Clearbanc is going through an exciting growth phase. We’ve just closed a $300M round and we're looking for the right people to join #TeamClearbanc. This is a unique opportunity for an ambitious person looking to make an impact while getting exposure to fintech and learning what it takes to build a successful startup.
The Data Team consists of Engineers and Scientists empowered to pursue Clearbanc's business objectives. We use Statistics and Data Science to provide data-driven solutions across the organization.
Clearbanc espouses three key values: Speed, Transparency, and Independence. Specifically in the context of Data Science, this translates into assisting in conducting reproducible research that improves our business metrics, while being constrained by tight deadlines.
We are open to applicants from all walks of life, as long as you are willing to present a compelling case for the relevance of your core competencies to our business goals.
Fundamentally, we are looking for somebody who is excited about learning new things, and exhibit a healthy amount of skepticism towards, well, just about everything.
While we will be there for you to help you grow, we also expect you to be comfortable working independently.
WHAT YOU'LL BE DOING:
Please note we are seeking co-ops who can start for the Jan 2020 term.
