Data Science Fellow job at UpEnergy

Job Description

About the role:
UpEnergy seeks a Data Science Fellow to enhance our ability to design and execute rigorous tests, pilots and Randomized Controlled Trials. In order for UpEnergy to deliver on its potential, it is imperative that we are constantly learning how to increase adoption and usage of our products. As Data Science Fellow, you will have the exciting opportunity to design and execute tests and trials that improve our understanding of the efficacy of various interventions we could implement to further encourage usage of our products in households across Africa. The ideal candidate will possess a deep understanding of how to design tests that are robust, statistically significant and manage data through Salesforce and its ecosystem. You will also be motivated to work on one of the world’s most pressing challenges – alleviating energy poverty and ensuring that a climate transition helps those most affected by climate change.

Why Join Us?
Not your average 9-to-5
UpEnergy encourages teamwork, creativity, and we’re not afraid to get our hands dirty. We stay close to our market, understand our customers, and have a lot of fun while doing our work! If you’re looking for a conventional 9-to-5, you’d be missing out on our adventures!

Opportunity to do things in a new way
As one of the largest compliance credit issuer in Africa, we need to be constantly improving and rethinking our way of work. This means endless opportunities for a self-starter to initiate new ways of doing things or experimenting ways to help us improve.

Personal and Career Growth
Wouldn’t it be a pity to spend so much time working but not growing and learning? At UpEnergy we value both personal and professional growth, and we want to grow as a team. From classroom training to coffee chats to performance review, we want to support every team member to grow into the best version they can.
Create Lasting Impact
Our clean energy products bring positive impact to both our planet earth and for the low-income communities we work in. We don’t just focus on sales – we follow up and truly understand our customers to make sure that they continue to benefit from our products. Your work will create much longer-lasting impact than what you can see!
