The days of learning data science by passively consuming video lectures are over. Real learning takes place when a student’s hands are on the keyboard, writing code, working with data, and solving problems. If you agree, keep reading!

About DataCamp:

DataCamp is building the future of data science education. Our students get real hands-on experience by completing self-paced, interactive data science courses from the best instructors in the world, right in the browser. In fact, over 1.6 million students around the world have completed over 80 million DataCamp exercises to date!

Behind every great DataCamp course are the passionate folks who built it. We decided early on that the best way for us to maximize value for our students is to build courses in partnership with top companies and experts in the data science community. That’s why our course library is packed with courses from companies like Anaconda and RStudio and data scientists like Andy Müller (scikit-learn), David Robinson (broom), and Hadley Wickham (ggplot2, dplyr).

About the role:

As a Data Science Content Developer, it’s your responsibility to work closely with these thought leaders (a.k.a. “instructors”) to build data science courses for the masses! In addition to providing detailed feedback on individual course specs, you will lead all aspects of the course development process following the initial planning phase, acting as a reviewer, thought partner, and (most importantly) an advocate for our students.

In addition to helping external instructors through the course development process, you will also have the opportunity to create supplemental content to help students practice and apply what they learn in the courses you’ve developed.

This position is ideal for someone with a passion for data science and education, who wants to join a fast-growing startup that’s training the next generation of data scientists and building the world’s best network of data science instructors.

Responsibilities:

  • Provide critical feedback on specs for new courses
  • Lead the course development process from post-planning through course launch
  • Work closely with external instructors to make courses interactive and engaging
  • Keep instructors on schedule
  • Design and implement automated testing to provide personalized feedback for students
  • Make data-driven suggestions for course improvements based on student feedback and engagement data
  • Build supplemental content to help students practice and apply what they learn in your courses

The ideal candidate:

  • Has 1+ years programming experience with Python or R
  • Is familiar with data science concepts (statistics, machine learning, etc.)
  • Is passionate about online education
  • Has completed online courses from DataCamp and/or other providers
  • Loves building things and watching people interact with them
  • Is extremely organized and detail-oriented
  • Enjoys giving and receiving constructive feedback
  • Has a strong command of English, both written and verbal

What's in it for you?

  • The opportunity to build and grow your data science network by working with and learning from experts in the field
  • A competitive salary and stock options at an early stage start-up
  • 100% of medical & dental insurance premiums paid
