Data Scientist

Who we are

Founded in 2012 and headquartered in Chicago, IL, Pangea started with the mission of making money transfer simple, fair and safe. Since then, we’ve been striving to enhance the security and reduce the cost and pain points of international money transfer. Our first solution allows users to complete a transfer in three easy steps and pay with any US debit card, with an innovative nationwide cash solution coming soon. Receivers in Mexico, Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador and Dominican Republic can collect the transfers in cash or receive the money directly into a bank account. Through every partnership and product iteration, we’ll continue to help our users save more time and money.

Pangea is successful because of our world-class team members and strong passion for making an impact in our customers’ lives. We are different. We are innovative. We are eager to learn from each other. We are dedicated to building the world’s best platform for transferring money.

Our philosophy

At Pangea, our employees are our most valuable asset. Our philosophy of promoting from within provides employees with endless growth opportunities. We create our own path and we can move within and between departments. 

The role

Pangea’s Data Science team enables data driven decisions across the organization based on the wealth of data that we possess ranging from transaction activity, geolocation data, mobile device data, and machine learning to behavioral patterning.  We strive to responsibly produce and implement predictive models so that we can continue to provide the best service and features to our customers. From fraud analytics and processor routing optimizations, to reporting and visualization infrastructure, we’re building systems from the ground up to inform decision making at the company. This isn’t a back room quant theory role … analyzing data is half the battle, communicating findings, anticipating trends and making recommendations to the senior team is the remaining half of the role.

As a Data Scientist, you will be part of a small analytics team that will help identify areas where smart data science adds the most value and what techniques are the most appropriate, as well as informing our long term product roadmap. Creative thinking and ingenuity are key; you’ll be responsible for the “why” in addition to the “how” when it comes to problem solving. Help us change the remittance game at a pivotal time in the mobile money transfer industry and join our amazing team! We are a diverse group of bright, creative minds with a desire to make an impact.

At Pangea, we don’t just let anyone join our close-knit family. Our vetting process is very intentional and calculated. We’re looking for individuals who can work collaboratively with each member of our dynamic, diverse team, while simultaneously enhancing the unique company culture. You will report to the VP of Analytics and Insights and work closely with other data and risk analysts as well as our engineers to build a world-class platform. You’ll have a proven track record of success, excellent communication skills, consistent work ethic, and a desire to be a part of one of the fastest growing mobile remittance companies in the industry.
