Senior Data Scientist: Shaping the future of video

What is Clipchamp?

We’re a Brisbane-based video-tech company whose unique, in-browser applications overcome limitations of both desktop and cloud-based alternatives with one simple mission: to help everyone become a creator of awesome video content! Since 2016 we’ve attracted nearly 8 million registered users globally and counting, and that’s only the beginning! 

We’re transforming the way people create and we’re looking for a Senior Data Scientist to play in this awesomely innovative and evolving field with us - someone excited about the ongoing analysis and investigation of data to achieve insight and innovation leading Brisbane’s growing start-up success story! As a Clipchamp Senior Data Scientist, you'll love exploring, understanding and interpreting data to find meaning for all stakeholders. Data-driven, you can't think of anything better than executing the analysis of statistics and machine learning.

As a Senior Data Scientist, you’ll be: 


  • Defining our data governance, and data strategy overall, selecting the right stack for scale
  • Employing behavioural data and insights to optimise the user journey end to end, increasing engagement, subscription conversion rate and retention rate
  • Operating within a large volume of analytics data we’ve collected over time to understand user behaviour, trends and unlock key insights
  • Shaping how we can use machine learning to provide predictive experiences in our product and create the world’s smartest video creation platform
  • Collaborating with Engineering & Design to define the strategy improvements for our video platform
  • Serving as the resident Clipchamp data expert, advocating data literacy internally

Who we’re looking for: 

  • Masters, PhD or equivalent in a quantitative subject (statistics, math, engineering, physics or computer science)
  • Industry background in the data science domain
  • Proficiency in data science relevant programming languages (e.g. Python, R) 
  • Working knowledge of SQL
  • Experience developing machine learning models in business applications
  • A practical mindset when working with data - finding ways of working that yields results over ‘perfect data’

Bonus if you love: 

  • Working with Ad tech, marketing or growth
  • Startups – the ever changing landscape, experimentation, innovation, and direct impact you’ll have on the direction of a company
  • Limitless thinking! We were told you can’t build a video editing platform in browser, including encoding the final video – but we did
