- Can communicate concisely and persuasively with engineers and product marketers


- Ph.D. or M.S. in a natural science where you ran experiments and analysed data statistically
- Academic experience in one (or more) of these fields: physics, bio-statistics, astrophysics, computational chemistry, cognitive or neuro sciences, behavioral economics, econometrics, finance, mathematics, computer science, operations research
- Work experience analyzing lots of data, for example in biotechnology, astrophysics or particle physics experiments, quantitative finance or high frequency trading, “war on terror” intelligence analytics, or consumer Internet
- Good working knowledge of Java, Hadoop (via Pig or Hive is OK), and Mahout
- Hands-on work experience with machine learning or natural language processing
