Our data is game-changing, however a lot of work goes into making it both useful and accurate.
We’re looking for more scientists to join our data org. We’re 14 people today with varied backgrounds — statistical genetics, astronomy, physics, material science, cognitive and social psychology, robotics, computer science, pure math, and more — and a shared appreciation for our diversity.
As a data scientist, you’d join one of four teams:
- Applied Data — extend our self-service analytics platform with new metrics and analyses.
- Data Services — perform novel research to help clients answer real-world questions.
- Quality — build the ingestion, normalization, and enrichment systems for behavioral datasets comprising billions to trillions of events.
- Editorial — conduct research and provide analyses to generate consumer behavior stories for our blog.
While we work across multiple teams, we comprise a single functional group. We feel strongly that data scientists should have the freedom to move between projects and teams, to experiment with and grow in more than one area.
Feel free to express interest in a specific team or in our data org generally.
