We are looking for a Data Scientist to join our team in San Francisco or based remotely (anywhere, US). 


As a data scientist at RiskIQ, you will evaluate your work by how well you enable our customers to find interesting security insights from our data.  Working closely with our security experts, you will develop and code models.  You will keep in mind who is using the data and do what’s necessary to help them get the most value from it -- even if that sometimes means reviewing and cleaning up false positives yourself.  You’ll go to bed at night thinking about how we can use our data better, coming up with ideas, and thinking of all the ways to combine our data in ways that create new security insights.

Your responsibilities will include

  • Develop machine learning models to better detect digital threats and surface interesting data to our customers
  • Analyze our data to ensure that it’s consistent and correct
  • Develop and maintain machine learning models that support our detection, analysis, blacklists, and data pipeline
  • Deliver value to our customers through increasing breath and depth of detection


  • Prior data science experience working with languages like R, Python, or Java
  • Ability to deliver in a fast-paced, self-directed environment
  • Ability to learn new concepts, tools, languages, and models
  • An analytical mindset
  • A love of data and finding interesting questions to ask of it
