  • We’ll be exploring different ways to improve upon existing scientific personality measurement systems.
  • The goal is to build the most effective (empirically/scientifically based) personality testing system in the world.

    • Writing Python code
    • Applying statistical and machine learning-based methods to make predictions
    • Finding relevant datasets and integrating them into our system
    • Connecting our system with APIs and other services
    • Writing unit tests to make sure our system functions properly
    • Generally taking charge of whatever has to happen to move the project forward - this will include non-programming-related tasks that require you to coordinate with other team members, find appropriate datasets, keep the project on track, etc.

  • At least some data science or statistics experience
  • The ability to learn new, complex ideas quickly

  • Experience with machine learning methods
  • Attention to detail
  • Experience running psychological studies
  • Understanding of personality-related research.
  • Understanding of linear algebra and statistics
  • A preference for writing high-quality code and testing code carefully
