We’re hiring a Data Science Administrative Assistant in Columbus, OH

Our data science team analyzes diverse datasets related to key business problems. We’re responsible for the full stack of data analytics, from querying and procuring data to the translation of results into strategic business decisions. Our goal is to make our teams and processes more efficient and to price our products more fairly and accurately. 

There's a lot of behind-the-scenes planning and organization required to ensure our success. We’re looking for an Administrative Assistant to help ensure everything is going according to plan. You’ll manage calendars and emails to help our data scientists be in the right place at the right time, all while exhibiting a high level of responsibility and responsiveness to drive tasks through to completion. Trustworthiness and high-quality written communication are essential, as you’ll regularly handle sensitive data and communicate with key stakeholders. 

However, you’ll also be part of the action through a breadth of reporting on large research projects which require the calculation and presentation of key KPIs. Some experiments will involve finding both internal and external volunteers, in addition to handling every logistical component of the experimental pipeline.


  • Coordinate the logistics of research projects and recruit potential testers.
  • Handle email communication (we use Google's G Suite).
  • Manage calendars: reserving conference rooms, resolve conflicts, handle reschedules, ensure invites contain dial-in information etc.
  • Arrange travel (individual and group).
  • Keep track of outstanding requests and schedule reminders.
  • Handle invoice processing and expense reports.
  • Help manage budgets.
  • Assemble PowerPoint and spreadsheet presentations for a wide variety of audiences, from executive management to the board.
  • Maintain and develop ad hoc dashboards and reporting on key initiatives


  • Highly detail-oriented. If your friends say you’re the most meticulous person that they know, you’ll be exceptional in this role. Please apply.
  • Great people skills, ability to communicate and persuade testers to fulfill their duties.
  • Reliability, trustworthiness, and a sense of urgency.
  • Persistent. Some volunteers will require more love than others.
  • Relentless optimism and sense of humor
  • Impeccable grammar.
  • Familiarity with iOS and Android smartphones.
  • Experience with spreadsheets.
