As a Data Scientist at Tripaneer, you love using data to find areas of improvement which enable the business to grow. At Tripaneer, you will be responsible for guiding and supporting the team with data, reports and models, specifically our Marketing department.

You will work on generating new datasets and perform analysis from operational to managerial level. Additionally, you work on pragmatic algorithmic solutions to support the Marketing department in meeting their growth objectives.

The analysis you perform can range from very high-level (e.g. How do we define customer attrition and what are the factors that lead to better retention?) to mid-level (e.g. Can we predict high intent customers depending on their behavior in order to tune our retargeting dynamically?) to detail-level (e.g. Are there significant behavioral differences in the customer journey for a particular experiment?).
