We’re powered by purpose
Mable is an online platform connecting Australians looking for disability and aged care support to independent support workers. Since 2014, we’ve been helping our community live their kind of independence, and today we’re one of Australia's largest and fastest growing healthtech platforms.
We have been recognised in AFR’s Fast 100 list, Deloitte’s Tech Fast 50, and won the Australian Growth & Australian Technology Growth Company of the Year Award in 2020! So don’t miss your opportunity to join a thriving scale-up and deliver change to Australia’s care and support sector.
As a Data Scientist at Mable you will use advanced data and analytical techniques to identify and understand our business and product challenges, communicate your insights to multiple business stakeholders, partner with cross-functional teams, and develop recommendations and prototypes to solve these challenges. You will be at the heart of a fast-paced, high growth environment where you will help drive real-world impact.

What will I be doing?

  • Developing and testing rapid prototypes for data science services, and collaborating with Data Engineers to productionise the final product
  • Collaborating with other Data Scientists to enhance Mable's matching engine
  • Championing the use of advanced analytics across Mable, demonstrating how advanced analytics can be used to solve complex business problems
  • Leading exploratory analysis to identify trends and insights, and verify hypotheses
  • Identifying with data not only what is happening, but why it is happening and what it means
  • Analysing the results of split (treatment / control) tests to determine which new product features or operational processes are effective
  • Communicating your analysis, insights and recommendations to non-technical audiences, both verbally and in written form
  • Partnering with a team of product managers, engineers, UX designers, and other business stakeholders
  • Outlining the data implications for new product features
  • Creating and maintaining dashboards to present insight and performance
  • Ensuring that all data analysis adheres to the Mable privacy and security policies

What are we looking for?

  • 2+ years of relevant industry work experience providing advanced analytics solutions which lead to actionable insights
  • Good understanding of statistical modelling and machine learning techniques and using this understanding to drive business value
  • Advanced knowledge of analytical tools such as R and Python
  • Ability to communicate your insights and technical concepts to a non-technical audience, both verbally and in written form
  • Experience using Tableau or another data visualisation tool to create data visualisations and dashboards
  • Initiative and ownership to deliver work with autonomy
  • Collaboration skills to partner effectively with multiple stakeholders
  • A “solutions mindset” of natural curiosity and a strong motivation to solve problems, no matter how complicated or ambiguous they might be
  • Comfort with ambiguity, a fast-paced environment, and rapid business growth
  • Above all else, a “can-do” attitude is the most important qualification!

What else would make a difference?

  • Experience with recommendation engine algorithms, especially delivering recommendation algorithms to drive business value
  • Familiarity with analytics tools such as Databricks and experience working with AWS
  • Experience analysing split (treatment/control) tests, including statistical analysis
