Data Scientist

Chicago, IL

At Fetch Rewards, we have two sayings that sum up the ethos of our organization launched in 2013:

Defeat the Odds!

What's next?

Our vision is to leverage technology to transform shopping into an engaging, rewarding, and delightful experience, ultimately propelling the time-worn grocery shopping experience into the 21st century. Our technology platform, based around a free smartphone app, ensures that users have the best shopping experience possible. Headquartered in Madison, WI with offices in Chicago, Denver and New York, we pride ourselves on two things -- the caliber of our work and the scope of our ambition.

The Data Scientist will work closely with the VP of Analytics to ensure our projects are successfully implemented. They will partner with the Client Service teams to help create Analytical Solutions that help our clients get rich insights from our unique data repositories that include Fetch app usage data, shopper transaction data and other shopper / product dimensions. This person will also serve as a key member of our analytics team, conceptualizing and carrying out analyses that demonstrate the data’s value and building algorithms that elevate the platform. Success in this role requires a driven problem-solver that is prepared to design and develop solutions.
