About us

We created Peanut with the idea that no one should have to navigate womanhood alone. Especially the hard parts. Our mission is to provide a social network for women to connect across fertility and motherhood. So far, over 1 million women have joined to build friendships, find support, and learn from one another.

Since 2017, we've grown quickly across the US and other countries, and received numerous accolades from Apple, the New York Times, Good Morning America, and the BBC to name a few.

We recently closed our $17M Series A round and are backed by market-leading VCs including EQT Ventures, Index Ventures, Female Founders Fund and Sweet Capital (the brains behind King.com), enabling us to grow our team… now is a great time to join!

Responsibilities and role

This is a full-time position. You'll report to Julien, our CTO, and work within our Engineering team of 14 people.

We'll expect you to design, build, and ship:

Natural language engines based on user-generated content, such as

  • Keyword/tag suggestion
  • Content classification
  • Sentiment analysis

Machine learning engines, such as

  • Learning-to-rank "matching" user profiles
  • Recommending content to users

As well as contribute to data analysis:

  • Identify patterns, correlations, and causes to user behaviour
  • Generally, support product intelligence and deliver insights to help guide our roadmap

Your experience

You have:

  • been a data scientist or software engineer for 5+ years
  • significant experience with NLP toolkits, e.g. NLTK
  • experience with building machine learning models, e.g. Scikit-Learn or Pytorch
  • become very comfortable manipulating large datasets
  • a solid statistics background.

While these are not requirements, we'll be excited if you've also:

  • Can write SQL fluently.
  • Have experience programming in Ruby.
  • Worked on any mobile product in the social or gaming area.

Location

As our CTO works remotely, and many of the team do, we are entirely flexible about whether you would like to work remotely (from anywhere in the UK or the rest of the EU), or in central London, at our vibrant Peanut HQ.

We'll simply expect you to join us in person for a few days every months to socialise and plan as a team.

Compensation

Depending on experience and location,

£70,000 to £80,000 gross salary per year (or local equivalent)

Participation in our equity pool

We offer 20 days holidays plus UK bank holidays.
