By doing this, we’re letting our users create a Data Action Layer to power products, deliver outcomes, and generate insights.
Founded in 2017 in New York City, Alkymi works with some of the world’s leading businesses and financial services firms to automate their highest-impact workflows by delivering an unparalleled product experience. We’re laser focused on understanding our customers’ workflows from top to bottom, and building easy-to-use, powerful, tools to meet their objectives. We combine cutting edge data science and machine learning with best-in-class software engineering to delight our users at some of the world’s most demanding and sophisticated businesses.
As we continue to scale, we're seeking a Data Scientist to join our core team.

Alkymi was founded in 2017 in New York City by a team from Bloomberg, Two Sigma, and x.ai with the idea of empowering business users to create a Data Action Layer that turns processes that once caused operational headaches into a source of efficiency, insight, and action.
Decades-long careers focused on unstructured data taught Alkymi's founders three important truths:
-The potential value in unstructured data is immense
-Business users should be empowered to utilize unstructured data
-Unstructured data should drive business actions
With backing from Intel Capital, Canaan, Work-Bench, SimCorp, and other industry leaders, Alkymi is empowering businesses to unlock their data and supercharge their workflows. We’re giving our customers the ability to extract, analyze, and take immediate action on critical data that was once locked in emails and documents, so they can accelerate their decision-making, improve customer satisfaction, and empower their employees to focus on high-value, rewarding work.
Salary Range: $100,000 - $145,000 annually + Equity + Fully Paid Company benefits + 401k + Unlimited PTO
