Helping the world
master data skills.

It's clear that data science is one of the most transformative industries of the 21st century — not to mention a great career. Even if you aren't a data professional, strong data skills create opportunities for everyone to do more in their field.

We believe that the best way to learn data skills is through hands-on, active learning with real data problems. We have a project-based curriculum and interactive exercises to ensure that learners are able to apply concepts in the real world.

Our values.

Our values help us build a strong team that supports our learners around the world.

  • Put learners first.

    We’re not just building another learning site. We’re building the site that gets the best outcomes for learners. And we do whatever it takes to help learners reach their goals.

  • Own your results.

    We’re driven to set ambitious, measurable, goals and exceed them. We own our outcomes, good or bad.

  • Learn from mistakes.

    We don’t succeed with everything we do. And that’s okay - we need to take risks to reach our goals. When we don’t succeed, we learn from it and articulate how we’ll improve.

  • Do a few things well.

    We build high-quality experiences for our learners. To do that, we have to prioritize by saying no to a lot of promising ideas. We’d rather do one thing well than several things poorly.

  • We’re better together.

    We believe that collaboration and communication are how we build something truly great. We’re better together than individually.

Diversity at

Because our mission is to teach data skills to learners all over the world, diversity and accessibility are very important to us. Just like our drive to broaden the diversity of Data Science through our learners, we also look to do this internally on our team as well.

We strive to create an environment where everybody feels valued. Where people of all ethnicities, gender identities, and nationalities can be authentic, knowing that they are appreciated for who they are.

  • Be part of a small mission-driven team.

  • Flexible vacation and sick leave.

  • 100% remote with flexible working hours.

  • Competitive salaries that are regularly benchmarked and adjusted.

  • Annual professional development allowance.

  • Opportunity to directly impact learners.

  • Health, dental, and vision insurance (US).

Frequently asked questions

If I am an international candidate, do I still have to pay taxes in the US?

In most cases, international team members do not have to pay taxes in the US. If you are a US citizen living abroad, you would have to pay taxes above a certain amount of annual income.

In any case, we always recommend that you speak with a tax attorney in your country of residence and citizenship to understand your tax obligations, before working through the offer process with Dataquest. Often the initial consultation is free.

Depending on your country, you may need some time to register a vat ID or company before you can legally work. Make sure to find a tax accountant with international experience. A good heuristic is to look for an accountant who speaks/offers services in English.

I am not a US citizen. What would be my employment status on paper?

You will be contracted as a full time service provider, not a full time employee. You will sign an agreement with Dataquest hiring you for your professional services. You will be required to provide an invoice monthly.

What are my expected working hours?

You can select your own working hours, as long as there's a minimum overlap of 3 hours with the morning in EDT (US).

How much collaboration is there since this is a remote company?

Dataquest by nature is a very collaborative work environment as we are all working on one mission: student success. We use tools like Slack, Zoom, Google Meet, and others to make sure we are always staying in touch and communicating as much as possible with each other.

We have our day to day functional teams, but we also have smaller groups of cross-functional team members working on various projects involving; the business, culture, student success, amongst other things.

There are plenty of opportunities at Dataquest to work on projects outside of your normal job duties and work with team members across different groups.
