Landing was founded under the belief that individuals must have ownership of their professional careers in order to ensure their ability to keep-up with the future of work. Essentially, our mission is to change the way careers are planned and executed.

You’ll be a key to help us on this mission.

Data Science @ Landing

For a Data Scientist, Landing is quite the data goldmine for you to explore and a once in a lifetime opportunity for you to have a real impact on the future of work. There’s only a limited number of companies that have access to detailed information about 120.000+ tech professionals and over 230.000+ applications to thousands of jobs in hundreds of companies.

Landing is in a unique position to leverage this data into intelligence. We want your help to use this priceless data to help people grow their careers, land the right jobs and companies to find the right talent.


Your mission

Your mission will be divided into two types of work!

Firstly, you will be a hands-on professional responsible for processing and analyzing all the data that we have in a way that is useful and insightful for us. This means:

  • Processing, cleansing, and verifying the integrity of the data
  • Enhancing data collection procedures to include information that is relevant but not yet used in the analysis
  • Researching, developing, and implementing predictive algorithms

Also, you will be responsible for creating a Data Science team from the ground up. This means:

  • Building a team of 3 data scientists until the end of 2020 (which means we are looking for someone very ambitious)
  • Defining and managing our Data Science roadmap

 Role description

  • You’ll be reporting to the Product Lead
  • Leading a Data Science team that will be a part of an ambitious Product Team, which right now comprises 8 software engineers, 2 team leads, 3 product owners and 2 UX designers. BTW, due to this growth, we’re moving to a brand new incredible office in the City Center!
  • Manage the hiring pipeline for Landing’s Data Science positions for your team
  • Develop, maintain and execute the Landing’s Data Science Roadmap
  • Data Science - Use technology to analyse and make predictions based on our data and use them to improve our product. This means Machine Learning + Data Analysis
  • Help Landing reach the data we need and help us understand it: pro-actively providing insights and operational reports, growing and maintaining our infrastructure and creating data pipelines from the sources we need.
  • Be a data evangelist and make sure that as a team we make decisions grounded in information

Main requirements


  • 2+ years of experience
  • Python for Data Science
  • Postgres and SQL knowledge is a must
  • You know your way around the coolest python libraries: Numpy, Pandas, Matplotlib, Sklearn

  • You’ll be free to build your team, so you’ll need to be autonomous and ambitious
  • You have tattooed the saying “better done than perfect”


  • Previous experience as a leader
  • Strong emotional intelligence skills
  • You can inspire and lead your team-mates
  • Another tattoo is “the team comes first”

Nice to have

  • Google Cloud Platform experience, namely with BigQuery and Google App Engine.
  • You can make some insightful graphs with your experience in Google Data Studio
  • Experience in Agile methodologies
  • Ruby is the basis of our infrastructure so, it really helps if you are already able to navigate it


  • Health and Dental Insurance
  • Work-from-home & remote working days a couple of  times per month
  • 1 day of training per month with dedicated budget
  • Career development mapping
  • Free Fruit, Coffee, and Tea
