Job description

As a Data Scientist at Rhombus you will work with our Product team. You will design, develop, and launch efficient and reliable data pipelines to move, analyze, and model data and to provide intuitive analytics from Rhombus’ large and complex datasets. A strong systematic mind is a priority, as well as the ability to communicate clearly in multiple technical contexts. The ideal candidate should be passionate about finding insights in large datasets, while maintaining attention to database architecture, data reliability, efficiency, and quality. As we are continually releasing new features and products, the ability to construct elegant system-level data architecture is expected. Additionally, you’ll be asked to travel to client sites where you’ll engage and collaborate directly with the client to discuss data pipelines, solutioning, and to ensure a strong client connection.

This role will require travel to client sites in Omaha, NE and/or Colorado Springs, CO. Frequency will depend on business needs and may vary at times but can be upwards of twice per month. Last minute notice to travel to client sites may be given at times.
