About Us

At Dataquest, we teach data science to a community of hundreds of thousands of students from all across the world. We help students to build projects, learn key data science concepts and skills (like collaboration), and to develop the confidence they'll need to start new careers. You can read more about our philosophy here, and learn more about what our students think here.

Your Mission

At Dataquest, we're committed to building a better way to learn data science online. While we were reviewing our own marketing data, we noticed that there was a lot more that we could be doing to increase the rate at which prospective students who have heard about Dataquest signup and try our platform for themselves.

In order for us to change the way that students learn online, we need to effectively message and convert as many potential learners as we can. We're excited about teaching students more effectively, but we've found that many students are slow to try something new and often feel that they could never do something like learn data science. Your work will help these prospects to identify that by working with Dataquest, they can reach their educational goals. In order to do that effectively, you'll need to develop a deep understanding of our students and the world they live in. The ideal candidate will be able to manage the nuances of a program that can balance these two tensions--and drive meaningful results.

If you're up to the challenge, you'll be responsible for iterating on and building out our ads and content marketing activities. You'll work with a variety of industry-standard tools in a robust data-driven environment to refine our program. Your work will contribute directly to the rate at which students signup and experience Dataquest for themselves.

If you have a deep curiosity about advertising and marketing, this role will give you a chance to develop your skills in both areas. If you're passionate about education and making a difference joining our team will provide you with a chance to do just that.
