This is an individual contributor role. While we aim to tailor the responsibilities of this role based on your specific strengths and weaknesses (we all have them!), here are the responsibilities typically held by data science evangelists at DataCamp:

  • Representing DataCamp at industry conferences either as an attendee or a speaker

We’re excited about you because you have the following:

  • Advanced programming skills in either Python or R
  • Deep knowledge in data science, analytics, business intelligence, and/or AI—you are able to show demonstrable knowledge and experience in one of these spaces
  • An extraverted personality with a passion for public speaking, podcasting, and writing with a proven track record in these activities
  • High degrees of urgency & organizational skills, you care about delivering the best possible experience for our audience
  • High degrees of relationship management skills, you are able to foster deep & thoughtful relationships within the data community and are not afraid to hustle for external speakers to join you at one of your events.

We’re even more excited about you if you have the following:

  • A brand in the data science, machine learning, artificial intelligence, or business Intelligence communities preferred
  • Experience as an evangelist, developer advocate, or community lead at a similar organization/industry
  • Experience delivering thought leadership content programs (webinars, white papers, podcasts, conferences) at other ed-tech organizations

What's in it for you:

In addition to joining a creative and international start-up, as a permanent employee you’ll enjoy:

  • A very competitive salary
  • An exciting job that will offer you technical challenges every day
  • Flexible working hours
  • International company retreats
  • Conference and hardware budget
  • Working with a great team (everyone says this, but we’re serious—we’re pretty great)
