Sr. Data Scientist


To help teams and athletes win, we need a Sr. Data Scientist to solve big problems throughout our business. In this position, you will be responsible for using advanced analytics to create a 360 degree view of our customers and users in many markets from high school sports to professional leagues around the world. In this role, you will be a business facing member of the Decision Science team and will be essential to drive ROI throughout every element of the business.

Our Team

Decision Science is a high impact, cross-functional team of Data Analysts, Data Engineers, Data Scientists, and Consumer Insights Researchers at Hudl.  We combine qualitative and quantitative data to deliver actionable insights and scalable analyses to power strategy at the highest levels.  We partner with internal Hudl teams and business leaders by providing self-service analytics, custom insights, and foresights to help them drive their business forward.  

On any given day, we might be writing SQL queries to understand user behavior over time or running data through statistical models to help our teams forecast and set better goals.  Here are some projects we're working on:

  • Building a predictive model to determine the likelihood that a customer will renew their subscription with Hudl
  • Designing and building data models to support point-and-click analytics and visualizations in Looker for our employees to use
  • Delivering data and insights about products and customers to frontline Hudlies in operational tools like Salesforce
  • Guiding product feature development that will drive engagement and pull more users into the Hudl platform
  • Helping teams commercialize on data by feeding it back into the product

You Are

  • Analytical. Making decisions based on instinct raises a red flag for you. You think data is more important than opinions. You love finding patterns in data.
  • Highly Driven. You are comfortable inserting yourself into the right conversations to drive impact. You are not an order taker. You seek out the best opportunities that provide the highest ROI. You are also comfortable operating with ambiguity.  You forge your own path into uncharted territory by identifying next steps, getting others onboard, and taking decisive action.
  • Stakeholder First. You champion stakeholder needs and have an intuitive grasp of business problems. 
  • Able to tell stories with data. You can communicate technical analysis to a non-technical audience. You know what is important to your audience and how to communicate that, and you don’t get stuck in the weeds. You effectively use data visualizations to enhance consumption of data and not distract from it.
  • Technical. You’re experienced with tools for data analysis tasks and can demonstrate your skills with them.
  • Systems Integrator. You understand how data science fits into the data ecosystem and understand how they serve our customers and frontline Hudlies.

You Will

  • Solve problems. You will work closely with the rest of our Decision Science team on how to best solve a problem or question posed by our internal teams. You’ll conduct research to drive growth and increase retention.
  • Use cutting edge tools. You will use all of the advanced analytics techniques in your toolbelt. Whether it be curating a predictive model for customer churn, using KNN for segmenting user behavior, or applying the newest machine learning technology to enhance our business platforms, you will ship models into production that have deep impacts throughout all elements of our business.
  • Build and run SQL scripts. You will write SQL scripts to pull, aggregate, and display data for reporting for internal teams at Hudl, and you will help them interpret the results.
  • Plan and coordinate analytics projects. You will help our team manage tasks and communication for large scale projects across multiple departments.
  • Bring Teams Together. You are a great communicator who has demonstrated experience bringing opposing parties to consensus and understanding on your mission to deliver high quality data products.

You Have

  • Postgraduate studies in Math, Statistics, or related preferred
  • 3-5 years of applied data science experience
  • 2+ years using scripting language (R, Python, etc.) experience conducting data analysis and creating predictive models. Experience pushing those models into production in a cloud environment is a plus.
  • Demonstrated knowledge of a domain of data science (Statistics, Machine Learning, AI, Network Analysis, Optimization etc.)
  • An expert understanding of advanced analytics toolsets and how they integrate into the larger data ecosystem
  • Expertise in writing SQL and a passion for scalable scripts
  • An ability to work independently and within a team within a remote environment.
  • Experience with product and customer analytics preferred.

We Will

  • Treat you like an adult. It’s all about a healthy work-life balance. We’ll trust you to get work done and take a break when you need it. (Hello, unlimited vacation policy!)
  • Give you what you need. We’ll supply the environment and tools for success, allowing you to focus on professional growth and career development.  
  • Challenge you. You'll be surrounded by people equally committed to the company's success, allowing for constant collaboration.
