Job description


Luna is looking for a senior data scientist to help develop data science libraries and pipelines for clients using Luna, a project said by NASA and Singularity University to be 1 of 20 most impressive technologies worldwide. If you bring strong analytical and technical skills, and have a passion for data, this could be the role for you.

As a Senior Data Scientist at Luna, you'll be instrumental in the design and development of custom solutions and pipelines to help our customers and clients get the results that they need when working with Luna. You'll be able to collaborate with a team of world-class engineers, community managers, and business developers (from Bloomberg, PayPal, and GitHub, amongst others) to make your mark on this project's future.

What You'll Do

As a senior data scientist at Luna, you'll be in charge of developing both libraries and pipelines for customers and the wider community. This will involve:

  • Working closely with key stakeholders and customers to develop and tailor customised data-analysis toolkits and pipelines to fit their needs.
  • Using your experience to inform design choices regarding Luna, especially around its support for data-analysis and machine-learning workflows.
  • Working closely with internal teams to ensure that the product evolves to make such uses as simple and easy as possible.
  • Contribute to the growth and success of a vibrant open-source project and its greater ecosystem.

The Skills We're Looking For

We have a particular set of skills that we're looking for in this role:

  • 5+ years of practical experience working with data-science pipelines for performing automated analysis, predictive analytics, or machine learning.
  • Practical experience with existing data-science toolkits such as Keras and Tensorflow.
  • An interest in building new data-science tools and pipelines.
  • Practical experience with at least one functional programming language, preferably Haskell. Please note that this does not count languages (such as Python), that enable limited forms of functional programming.
  • An interest in working with clients and users to create solutions that fit their needs and enhance their work.

It would be a big bonus if you also had:

  • Experience building customized data-science pipelines, tailored to particular tasks.
  • Experience in the deployment of data-science solutions.

Life at Luna

About Luna

Who you will work with? 

At Luna, we have a world-class team, with developers, community managers, and business developers from all walks of life and backgrounds, and work in close collaboration with industry advisers such as Robert Gentleman, the creator of the R programming language and computational biologist at 23andMe, and Edward Kmett, a skilled language designer and machine intelligence researcher at MIRI.

We firmly believe that only by working together, rather than putting our team members in their own boxes, can we create the best version of Luna that can be.

The Details

As part of the Luna team you'd be able to work from anywhere, whether that be at home, or on the go! We have team members distributed across the world, from San Francisco, to London, to Kraków. We welcome remote work and flexible schedules, or you can work from the Kraków office (or our planned SF office) if you'd like. We can provide competitive compensation and holiday, as well as the possibility of equity as time goes on.


  • Team built around the Humility, Respect, and Trust ideology.
  • Flexible working hours, possible part / full time remote work.
  • Work in a small team of world-class engineers and make impact on Luna.
  • Competitive compensation + possibility of equity as time goes on.
  • Equality, diversity & inclusion.
  • We've got standing desks in our office (no one uses them though :P).
