We help organizations understand and act on data
At Brooklyn Data Company, we’re crafting a place where data people love to work. We are thought leaders working towards meaningful, sustainable growth as individuals, as an organization, and as analytics partners with our clients. Our team is distributed throughout US time zones, collaborating remotely in locations across North and South America.

We’re at an important time in our company’s history: the very beginning. That means we don’t have things perfect yet, but we’re enthusiastically crafting a culture that’s inclusive, career-minded, and action-oriented from the start. We welcome feedback and input on everything from hiring to onboarding to project management practices. We hold each other to practicing our company values, to finding ways to strengthen the areas we each need to grow in, and to finding ways to take care of each other throughout.
You can expect to hone your technical skills and business acumen with opportunities on a variety of client engagements, by making open-source contributions to the data community, and by contributing to our pro-bono efforts. You’ll learn to sharpen your focus on useful, small iterations of work and to speak up when you need help planning and prioritizing. You’ll be able to share the things you’re really good at, learn from each of your coworkers, and have space for all the great things you love doing outside of work, too.

What to expect from the screening process
Kickstart questions - If you decide to apply, you’ll share some written answers to questions that will help us understand how your experience and interests map to what we need to grow the team.
Phone screen - You’ll speak to a manager at Brooklyn Data.
Chat with your potential future co-workers by phone or Zoom - You’ll chat for about an hour with a few of the people you’ll be working with. We'll share our key questions in advance, because we want to level the introvert / extrovert playing ground, to have you as much at ease as possible, and to make the best possible use of our time together. You’ll also have some time to ask questions of the team.
Work on problems that reflect the job - You’ll submit your responses to a set of exercises designed to reflect the technical and communication skills you’ll need on the job. We hope it both gives us a sense of your skills and you a sense of day-to-day work at Brooklyn Data. We’ll pay you a stipend for your time so that the time (a few hours) doesn’t create an unfair barrier for any applicants.
Chat with Scott - Meet our friendly founder!
References - We’ll ask to hear from a few people that can speak to what it’s like to work with you.
Our decision - If you’re selected, we’ll make an offer and open the avenues for communication with our team members to support you in making your decision. If you’re not selected in the current round, we promise to give you some context as to why not, if you’d find that useful. Keep in mind that we’re growing, and we expect there to be many future opportunities!
