About Iggy 🌱

Iggy is the first developer toolkit that simplifies access to complex location data. Founded by an Ex-Airbnb data scientist (Lindsay) and cartographer (Zack), we empower companies to build innovative products and models.

We are a remote WFH team, with team members on the East and West Coasts, from Portland OR, Berkeley and SF, CA, and Seattle, WA to Philadelphia, PA, St. Pete, FL and Cambridge MA. As a remote first team, we will always offer first-class support for remote team members.

We’re a seed-stage startup backed by some amazing institutional investors including First Round Capital and Amplify, an incredible micro VC Brianne Kimmel/WLV, the Airbnb Alumni Investment Syndicate AirAngels, as well as founders from Plaid, Looker and Instacart and other high value-add investors.

You'll be joining a small, fun, mission-oriented and mature team. We're intentional about the products we build and the culture we create. We value creativity, grit, curiosity, kindness and diversity. We love what we do for work, and we do other things too: one of our founders has sailed around the world and is in a rock band, another is an avid rock climber, traveler, and cheese fanatic. We value who you are outside/beyond work and are excited to support you in your passions.

About the Role

We are looking for a spatial data scientist who can build data products to deliver location-based insights to our users. In this role, you will work with the Product team to understand how location-based insights can be helpful in various use cases, and build indices and other data science products to empower our customers to leverage their location data. Some examples might include walkability indices, environmental health risk, noise level predictions, etc. The ability to independently build novel and valuable datasets from disparate and disconnected sources is more important than deep geospatial knowledge.

We’re looking for someone with the confidence to move quickly and make big decisions, the humility to own mistakes you make along the way, and the resilience to weather the ups and downs of a category-defining startup.

You will have wide latitude on architectural decisions and implementation. You will be a critical team member on our journey from 0-1, with massive impact.
