I'm looking for a referral for a data scientist position in Spotify's NYC office. I've got relevant experience (4-5 years) and working through GATech's OMSA program currently.
Would love to learn more about Spotify's data sci org more in general, as well. Currently interviewing with Uber, DoorDash, FB, and wework.
If anyone has referrals to other good tech companies in NYC, would also be very interested. (Airbnb, Google, etc)
Thanks very much in advance!
- Interesting. What do you think gets your resume traction? I hardly hear back from top companies, my experience is similar. Any keywords or key projects that you suggest to include in the resume to get attention? Or anything else?
Are you a PhD or already working in a top company?
- hm not sure. Don't have a PhD, doing my masters in analytics part time at GAtech. I think it's worth mentioning that I'm applying for product / BI / ops / advisory data sci positions, not ML engineering or research positions. Pretty big distinction between the 2 fields even tho they both fall under "data science".
I think what I have is just relevant experience and maybe some fancy fellowships on the resume to get attention. But my undergrad isn't even comp sci or math. Could be that company I work at rn is a target since some recruiters reached out but it's a fairly small/medium size company; I haven't worked at FAANG in the past.
Feel free to DM me if you want to chat more or a copy of my resume.
