Assistant to the Co-founders As of now
We are looking for an Executive Assistant who will be reporting directly to the co-founders. You will be at the epicentre of the young, dynamic and growing company. You will be sharing the co-founders’ tasks and responsibilities.

You should be able to work independently with minimum supervision. This position requires a highly resourceful team-player, who is comfortable working in a fast-paced environment, while remaining flexible, proactive, and efficient. You will support and assume own responsibility for all managerial and administrative tasks that the founders are dealing with on a daily basis.
Junior Data Scientist As of now
We are looking for a passionate and motivated fresh graduate or working Master’s degree student who is looking to build a career in social data science. Your role as junior data scientist will be to support the analysis of data collected by Groots and to establish efficient analytical workflows using state-of-the-art analytical tools, under the supervision of Groots’ head of statistics.

Strong work ethics is crucial – some skills can be trained on the job.
What we’re offering
- We are aiming at making data collection in emerging markets fair. Big task and responsibility – and our team is united in making the future of data more transparent and participative.
- Groots is truly international with colleagues from Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas working from Berlin and other locations. That isn’t always easy and all shiny – but we’re proud of our diversity.
- Our team is still quite small, so decisions go quick, responsibility is high and everyone’s contributions are always welcome at any time.
- We’re growing – and that means we’re looking to develop the people we work with. Potentially into future employees, growing with the company. This is a part-time assignment – but we would be most happy if it develops into a long term relationship.
