Social influences impact every decision in our lives including how we spend, save and receive money. Do you think about how these behaviors influence our everyday decisions. Do you want to measure these influences with a goal of changing how humans interact with money (or its replacement) If so, we have the role for you.
We are hiring for the Head of Network Science and Behavioral Modeling at Cash App. Understanding how network effects enable customer engagement and retention is a strategic priority for Cash. In this position you will have complete ownership and responsibility for building, maintaining and analyzing Cash App’s customer graph for purposes of community finding, business segmentation, quantifying network effect / virality and overcoming customer “cold start”. Your role is specifically responsible for helping management locate sub-networks and quantify the social influences on these sub-networks within both the Cash App and broader Block ecosystem. The output of your work will be used directly to build products, forecast business results and measure the impact of marketing campaigns.
Additionally, you will manage other data scientists in the development, implementation and maintenance of a suite of behavioral models to predict customer behavior, specifically churn, winback, product attach and the movement of funds in and out of the cash app ecosystem. The results of these models will be used to drive top-line business decisions, communicate strategies to Wall St. and influence investment decisioning. It is of utmost importance that the modeling specifications are interpretable by a business audience.
You will report directly to the Head of Quantitative Finance and Strategy and you will present your results to an Executive Audience on a regular basis. Understanding our networks from a quantitative standpoint is a strategic priority for both Cash App Executives as well as the Board of Directors.
Because of the high-profile nature of this role we are looking for someone who not only specializes in graph science but also can present to executive management and has the ability to manage a team of data scientists focused on behavioral model development.
