Underline starts with our people.
At Underline, we've rapidly built a culture around ownership, trust, community, and innovation. Underline is dedicated to cultivating a growth environment where people feel valued, work with a purpose of mission, are personally rewarded, and are professionally challenged.
Are you ready to join this team and transform American communities?
Underline was founded in 2019 with a singular mission: to ensure the vibrancy of our nation through building intelligent community infrastructure in a socially equitable manner. We work with American communities to design, finance, and construct open access fiber-optic networks. These networks are critical to secure internet access that’s fast, affordable, and fair. As open access networks, this infrastructure is also the essential foundation for distributed healthcare services, new wireless solutions, and resilient infrastructure including modernized water systems and responsible energy creation. Our first two projects are in Colorado Springs and Fountain, Colorado.
We are looking for a full-time data scientist to join our data team and bring technical excellence, thought leadership, and problem solving skills to support Underline’s mission. You’ll work closely with partners across business and engineering teams as we weave data science into our company processes—solving a growing and diverse list of challenges along the way.
On a given day you might be working with our marketing team to establish KPIs for a new initiative, collaborating with our product team to build a customer segmentation analysis, prototyping a neural network to parse satellite imagery for our network design team, or quantifying & visualizing the extent of the digital divide in a community for presentation to their city council. We’re expanding a suite of methods across different problem domains, actively building out our data infrastructure, and starting to productionize our proofs of concept.
If you’re excited about prototyping new methods to tackle unanswered questions and unsolved problems, building new systems in a fast-paced environment, and using your data chops to revolutionize our country’s infrastructure, we want you on our team!
Spend your time helping us connect America, one community at a time.

We’ll be up front— we’re at a stage where we need people who can wear multiple hats and hop in wherever needed. We’ve got some super interesting R&D planned, but we also must ensure data fundamentals are in place: reliable metrics and KPI tracking, analytics & reporting, etc. Generally, the responsibilities for this role will be to:
