Job description

Why you?

You are looking for something more from your job. Maybe a bigger problem to solve with both immediate and long term impact, or perhaps you just need a mission you can believe in every day. You are scrappy and collaborative while looking to join an inclusive and supportive culture with a bias for action. You dig balanced startup life and can wrestle challenges with grace. You love big, interesting problems and bringing solutions to the masses while making sure it feels personal, authentic and connected. If this sounds like you, we'd like to talk.

Why us?

The Mom Project is a pioneering, remote-first venture-backed startup with roots in Chicago. We are backed by some of the best investors in the world and are lucky to be surrounded by an incredible team of advisors, including Serena Williams.

The Mom Project is a platform and community leading a cultural movement that matches companies with diverse talent. To date, our platform has unlocked over $300M in earning potential by connecting our 650,000+ moms, dads and allies with opportunities at world class brands like Apple, Accenture, Etsy and Nike… and we are just getting started!

Our team is growing as we push to rewrite the narrative for working women at every stage of life. We believe all women should be able to choose both a successful family life AND career aspirations without sacrificing one over the other.

The Mom Project's commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We move forward when we all move together.

At The Mom Project, we understand the Moms we serve are not all the same and neither are the employees that support her. We are inspired by people who come from all walks of life.

Equality and inclusion at TMP is recognizing and honoring the uniqueness of each person who works to bring our mission to life, valuing all dimensions of diversity as our greatest asset.

We are committed to being a safe, respectful, fair, and inclusive culture for all.

What you'll do:

At the Mom Project, we are passionate about solving hard problems at ‘big data’ scale. Your contributions will enable massive social value and economic opportunity. The Match Engineering team is enabling The Mom Project’s success through the development and maintenance of Machine learning systems to scale job placements. As one of the early members of this team, you will play a critical role in implementing systems to support a growing community of moms, dads, and allies find work, and enable our employers to diversify their employees. Your daily work will focus on experimenting with, designing, and implementing automated curation and recommendation systems, defining best practices for data processing for the engineering community, and communicating with business stakeholders.

You should be familiar with supporting Data Science and Machine Learning workflows, and should leverage that knowledge to inform your design decisions. Our team’s product will act as the interface between data science and engineering, and will substantially impact the talent management teams who will rely on accurate and efficient curation to connect job seekers with employers.

What you have:

  • A Bachelor's degree in CS or sufficiently similar employment experience
  • 2+ years leading data intensive engineering development
  • 2+ years collaborating with business or data science stakeholders

  • Willingness to mentor and support peers
  • Excitement for our company’s mission
