About the role

Who We Are:

Here at Odeko, we believe that humans achieve more when they control their own destiny. That’s why we’re creating best-in-class solutions that empower small businesses to realize their big dreams -- starting with our mobile ordering app and supply chain management service. With Odeko, coffee shops and cafés can increase their revenue, lower their expenses, and reduce their environmental footprint effortlessly.

We’re a passionate team of dreamers and builders, determined to liberate small businesses from the not-so-fun aspects of the job so that they can focus on what’s fun and important.

Our Data Science Team is dedicated to aggressively applying the scientific method to high velocity technical innovation across the entire spectrum of the company, from business and markets, to predictive systems and hardware for clients and customers. This is not a place to throw spaghetti at walls and "see what sticks", but a place where a deep understanding of statistics, probability, and experiment design allow us to identify, develop, and deploy research and technology at break-neck speeds. We are experts in understanding failure and spend every minute of every day cultivating deeper and stronger abilities to bring ourselves to the edge of it just before catastrophe strikes. Of course we do miss - and so will you, but together we will learn from each crash and use it to push the limits even further. 

If you are willing to admit daily that you have more to learn, we are looking for you. If you are dedicated to jumping just as fast to pick up the dirty work as you are the beautiful work, we are looking for you. If you are willing to become dedicated to the scientific process, and not the project, we are looking for you. Join us.
