Perch is creating the next generation Consumer Products company by becoming the first technology-based scale operator of top eCommerce microbrands.  Microbrands selling through marketplaces like Amazon are already transforming global retail - Amazon’s 3rd party marketplace alone was $300B in 2020.  Perch is disrupting and accelerating this space by acquiring great brands and making them even better.  We look for successful, profitable businesses that sell top-ranked products with differentiated customer feedback.  The Perch platform integrates those businesses into a scale operating company and accelerates the products to the next level of sales and profitability.  We are a key resource for entrepreneurs who want liquidity and a key partner for Amazon and other retail channels by offering exceptional products, great customer service, and great value. 

We are looking for a Data Scientist to drive the price optimization agenda for the Pricing team within the Growth organization charged with scaling and maximizing profit from Perch’s brands.

  • Use observational data and generate experimental data to estimate pricing lever impact on demand.
  • Develop models to predict price elasticity of demand for new products, channels, and markets.
  • Work closely with Growth team product managers, engineers, and data analysts to carefully curate high dimension time series data sets that unlock new insights.
  • Consult with other analysts within the Growth team to aid in improved causal inference and in identifying opportunities for data science solutions.
  • Build the engine that surfaces causal and demand estimates to marketing, supply chain, and business leaders to improve the business response to changes in market demand.
  • Evangelize rigorous data driven decision making across Perch to elevate the business.
  • Develop deep expertise in the inputs that feed pricing logic and identify opportunities to improve accuracy.
About You

You have a Ph.D. or equivalent work or research experience in a field requiring causal inference analysis. Building optimization solutions, data pipelines, and analyses in python comes as second nature. You are thrilled to engage in brainstorming of economic hypotheses and can’t wait to dive into the data to validate or invalidate your ideas. You recognize the pursuit of better and cleaner data never ends, but brings great value to your work. Most importantly, you seek to innovate, to do what has not been done, and to measure what has not been measured.

An Insider's view of Perch

How does your team reward individual success?

One way we recognize & reward employees are our Golden Egg Awards! Golden Eggs are awarded to individuals who exemplify both the “what” & the “how” of success at Perch; they achieve meaningful business outcomes through exemplary demonstration of Perch core values. Nominations are peer-driven and winners select a customizable reward experience.


People Programs Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

We're in a race to scale; how do we scale our business to be equipped to acquire, integrate, & run what could be an infinite amount of brands? The thought of being a part of this growth & innovation is extremely inspiring. I believe we have the potential to be the pioneers of scale in this industry. It is a challenge we are facing head-on each day.


Manager, Operations

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Perch's business is new, its people are eager, and its problems interesting! In my time here, I've been able to learn from individuals with a diverse set of backgrounds and careers. While we work on hard problems, I've never struggled to be recognized or felt insecure raising a new idea. It's a place to grow!


Associate Director, Security

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

My teams face tough problems every day, many of which require creative solutions. I need my teams to be able to absorb problems and propose innovative solutions to unlock the full potential of the brands we own. We create safe spaces, embrace a growth mindset, support a diverse team, and prioritize our authenticity in and outside of work together.


Director, Category Management

What's something quirky about your company?

My favorite quirky thing about Perch is that we name everything we can after something bird related to fit in with the theme of our company name. Our biweekly company-wide meeting is the EGG (entire group gathering) & smaller teams have names such as "Party Parrots" or "Disco Ducks." Even our meeting rooms were named after different birds!


Analyst, Advertising
