Data Scientist

Product - Paris - Full-time

We believe in a world where all cars are shared. Carsharing empowers people to get going in a smarter, easier way, while also having a positive impact on the environment and making cities more liveable. It’s this vision that propels us forward and inspires us to think even bigger.

Since April 2019, Drivy is now part of Getaround. Together, we’re the world's leading carsharing
platform with a community of more than 5 million users sharing over 11,000 connected cars across 7 countries.

Our team is collaborative, positive, curious, and engaged. We think fast, work smart, laugh often, and are looking for like-minded people to join us in our mission to disrupt car ownership and make cities better. 


As a Data Scientist in our Product department, you will tackle some of the hardest quantitative challenges at Drivy and have a decisive impact on Drivy’s growth. You will combine clear product vision, deep technical skills, and rigorous analysis to build core algorithms of our two-sided marketplace.

Some of the key use cases are:
- Pricing: recommend the ideal prices for our car owners.
- Search engine: dynamically rank and filter cars to maximize conversion.
- Fraud detection: detect user fraudulent behavior and keep harmful users away from the platform.
