Saturn Cloud is building an innovative cloud platform for data scientists to do their work using distributed clusters, GPUs, and deployments. Saturn Cloud is used by enterprise customers, small teams, and hobbyists to use Python quickly and without a fuss. We are an early startup with significant funding and corporate partners like AWS, NVIDIA, and Snowflake.


This position is for a data scientist to help support the development of the product through communicating to the data science community about machine learning with Saturn Cloud. This includes giving talks about Saturn Cloud at conferences, writing blog posts about technical machine learning concepts, and helping develop the ecosystem around our product. You might also work with customers to write or optimize code.


Data scientists at Saturn Cloud do a variety of tasks. Here are some projects data scientists on the team have worked on:

  • Gave a talk at a major tech conference on how distributed computing can improve even small machine learning problems
  • Wrote a blog post for an online data science magazine about parallel computing with GPUs
  • Built the internal analytics dashboards for our product, so we can monitor how customers use it

For this position candidates should have:

  • Success in communicating data science concepts to individuals and audiences. Some examples of success include: having given talks at conferences, written a blog, and given internal presentations to large groups of business stakeholders
  • Experience in using data science in a business setting. You understand the ebb and flow of data science projects in corporate environments and can help Saturn Cloud design the product around it.
  • The ability to write data science code in Python. Saturn Cloud is designed around Python, however candidates with strong programming skills in similar languages (like R or Julia) and a willingness to switch to Python will be considered. Our customers and audiences mainly use Python, so we produce most of our examples and tutorials in Python. 

Bonus Points:

  • Experience with Dask, the Python distributed computing framework
  • Experience with machine learning on GPUs
  • Having worked at a small startup previously
  • Experience building machine learning pipelines in the business setting. This might include constructing models that ingest data on a schedule and/or serve results to customers or other business stakeholders in real time. 
  • Experience working with customers or stakeholders on data science tasks


We are also looking for a data scientist more focused on solutions engineering. If that might fit you better, please visit and apply!


Saturn Cloud believes in the importance of diversity and inclusion, and especially invites people from under-represented groups to apply for our openings.
