Data Scientist

Who are we?

With +10 years of experience in creating digital tools for youth sports, Heja was founded in 2017 by Mikael & Johan. 

The Heja app was launched in June 2017 and quickly began to grow faster and faster. In June 2018 Heja has grown from zero users to +100 000 users in the U.S, Australia, Brazil, South Africa among others. 

We knew that we needed more muscle and expertise to continue our growth journey. In June 2018 we announced our first investment round of 24M SEK and are so proud to have some of Sweden's top investors believing in us. Read more on Breakit (Swedish)

The next step

So now it's time to take the next step and grow our team from 9 to 15 people. Some might argue that it's too early for us to have a dedicated Data Scientist. But we truly believe that part of our success has been, and always will be, about putting time into digging, finding the unexpected and using data as a resource for challenging our daily work.

We believe that we need a Data Scientist who:

  • Loves to take responsibility. There will be concrete questions that need answers but much of your work will be to take charge of formulating the questions together with the team. 
  • Works close to the entire organization (CEO, Product and Marketing) and, as well as being a helping hand, also challenges the ideas and ways we move forward as a company.
  • Is a great communicator and makes sure the data is being understood and used in a way that actually makes us take better decisions.
  • Has a technical background and can research, understand and help to implement new tools and databases.

We do love data and it's something that is already a big part of the daily life for the entire team. We use a lot of tools but our current main setup is a redshift-statistics-DB where we aggregate our data (partly with the help of Stitchdata) and for visualization we use Chartio. And to be honest, there might be some spreadsheets as well. Our Data Scientist will be in charge of the setup and we expect that person to bring experience and knowledge about this to the team. 

Do you also have a background in youth sports? Fantastic! It's a big plus if you share our passion for the positive impact sports can play in the lives of children and youths: encouraging healthy lifestyles, building lasting friendships, growing children into leaders and acting as a bridge between cultures, etc.

We are super excited about finding a fellow data-loving new team member for our continued journey.
