What it’s like working at Brooklyn Data

We’re at an exciting time in our company’s history: in just a few years, we've already made a name for ourselves and are scaling to match demand.

That means we have an expanding client base, growing partnerships, and are consistently profitable. We continue to enthusiastically craft a culture that’s inclusive, career-minded, and action-oriented. 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 sharpen your focus on useful, small iterations of work and steward our planning and prioritizing systems to make sure everything the team stays the course throughout this period of growth. 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.

Note that our clients are mostly US-based, and so we look for the ability to communicate with clarity in English, verbally and in writing.

INTERVIEW PROCESS

What to expect from the screening process

  1.  Kick-start questions: Your answers to the application questions will help us understand how your experience and interests map to what we need to grow the team. Note: we don't review resumes or CVs, so no need to update or upload yours.
  2.  Intro Chat: You’ll speak to a manager about your background and interests and get a chance to learn more about Brooklyn Data.
  3.  Technical Exercise: 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 (about 4 hours worth) doesn’t create an unfair barrier for any applicants.
  4.  Team Interview: Chat with your potential future co-workers by phone or Zoom- you’ll chat for about an hour with a few of the people with whom you’ll be working. 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.
  5.  References: We'll ask to speak to two or three people who can speak to your work.
  6.  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!

DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION

For us, fostering inclusivity is all about creating an environment where people of all identities, experiences, and backgrounds can thrive. Our strengths so far have been in our carefully designed hiring process and materials and company policies, as well as an organizational culture that values asking critical questions and prompting each other to think outside of our individual experiences.
