Data Scientist in Charlottesville, Virginia U.S

Commonwealth Computer Research Inc. (CCRi) has openings for Data Scientists and Senior Data Scientists.

CCRi was started by the founding director of the Data Science Institute at the University of Virginia, as a company prioritizing choosing interesting work over growth and profit. As such we have a wide variety of projects ranging from cutting-edge research and prototyping to live products with large user-bases, in a variety of domains. The organization is very flat: the vast majority of our ~130 employees are Software Engineers and Data Scientists, and many of our managers come from technical backgrounds.

We do not hire for specific projects, so we are looking for well-rounded candidates who will be comfortable in several languages. That being said, one of our projects is entirely Julia-based and has an opening.


Due to the nature of CCRi’s business with the United States Government, and requirements found in CCRi’s government contracts, all CCRi employees are required to be United States citizens. Visas and Green Cards may make an applicant generally eligible to work in the United States, but they do not satisfy CCRi’s contractual requirements. All new CCRi employees are required to verify their United States citizenship upon hire. CCRi is not able to sponsor citizenship.


CCRi is an equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will be considered for employment without regard to their race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, or status as a qualified individual with a disability or protected veteran.
