About the Role:


The Data Science Engineering team writes the math and software that sit at the heart of AdRoll’s real-time bidding technology, our core product.  Our software runs over hundreds of terabytes of data daily to produce its models, which are then subsequently queried billions of times by hundreds of servers.


Current members of Data Science Engineering have a passion for not only mathematics, but also technology. If you join our team, you will have the opportunity to stay on the cutting edge of research and then to put this research to practical use by building your own software and infrastructure systems. When you push out your code, you will be able to see the results of your efforts ripple throughout our systems in real-time.

Moreover, AdRoll Engineering is broken out into small teams that have significant autonomy. We like to think of Data Science Engineering as a 'startup within AdRoll.' You will design your systems as you see fit, own your code, and your work will have a very direct, measurable impact on AdRoll's core metrics.

Data Science Engineering is a small team with a variety of concurrent projects. Your interests dictate what projects you will tackle. The common thread among all projects is that they require a high level of mathematical sophistication and engineering prowess, due to the scale of our data.


Current projects include:



  • Enhancing our machine learning software with the latest in machine learning algorithms

  • Employing machine learning and statistical modeling over our petabytes of data to generate new features to feed into our bid-time predictions

  • Creating systems that monitor inputs and performance on a real-time basis to inform engineers when unexpected changes arise.

  • Performing automated market analyses to dynamically react to changing market conditions


Responsibilities:



  • Discover new predictive insights in our dataset

  • Design systems that regularly compute new predictive models

  • Read and conduct research to develop mathematical solutions to our most pressing problems

  • Engineer to put your research into practice

  • Ownership of a system that is the core of our intelligence products

This year

Role:

We run online, self-paced Data Science workshops where participants learn with the help of a curated curriculum and 1-1 guidance from an expert mentor.
Our mentor community - the biggest strength of our programs - has some of the best experts from the field. If you are as passionate about mentoring as you are about Data Science, and can give a few hours per week in return for an honorarium, we would love to hear from you.

Please find more details about the program below.

  • Completely online and self-paced. Coursework is ~100 hours and on average, students finish it in 3 months.
  • Participants in this course are working professionals and college students from all over the world, interested in getting started with Data Science.
  • Participants learn about Data Science with the help of a curated online curriculum, many projects and a personal mentor.

    Responsibilities:

  • Be proficient in the curriculum topics of the workshop you are mentoring for.
  • Weekly, 30-minute video check-ins with students to help them set and achieve learning goals, answer subject matter questions, provide feedback on projects, and career advice.
  • You can do the calls at a time of your convenience, and take as many mentees as your schedule permits.

    You:

  • You are as passionate about teaching Data Science as about Data Science itself.
  • You are that rare combination of programming, statistics and storytelling skills.
    You are proficient in the curriculum topics of at least one of our Foundations or Intensive workshops.
    You have at least 2 years of experience solving real-life data science problems, and are comfortable working with large data sets.
    *You are empathetic and have excellent communication skills.

    Extra tags: datascience, machinelearning

Wonder (askwonder.com) is a fast-growing Internet company committed to making online research more accessible to those who need it. We want to employ confident, seasoned researchers who can efficiently track down the highest quality resources across the Web and explain the results to our users in a personable, human way.

The best researchers will have a wide breadth of knowledge and specific expertise in several subjects, with an equal penchant for diving into uncharted territory and swiftly becoming an authority. Because many of our users depend on hard data to make decisions, quantitative proficiency is preferred. You not only know how to extract and validate hard stats, but can calculate some of your own on the fly if need be. Previous experience working in a research-intensive role is a definite plus, though not required. Most of all, our researchers are all problem solvers with a sense of imagination that helps them dig deep and find meaningful intelligence.

Here are some example questions our clients ask us:

  • ”Who is currently deeply pursuing the consumer internet of things and who is primed to lead Industrial Revolution 4.0?”
  • “What impact will self-driving car technology have on global economies?"
  • “How fragmented (or consolidated) are companies in the used OEM auto parts industry?”
  • “What did the French colonial troops do when they were sent to China during the Boxer Rebellion - were they engaged in combat? Did they serve as a peacekeeping force?“

    For each search you claim, you'll be tasked with finding 5+ links to high-quality sources, and writing a rich summary directly answering the user’s query while adding any insights you gleaned along the way.

    We pay up to $24 for each completed research task, rate variable depending upon the difficulty of the question.

    PERKS

  • Global community of researchers
  • Work from anywhere
  • No fixed hours
  • Be as active as you’d like

    QUALIFICATIONS

  • A discerning eye for quality content
  • Strong general knowledge paired with several areas of expertise
  • Command of the English language and strong/grammatical writing a must
  • Ability to create lean, high-level, often quantitative summaries directly answering users’ questions
  • Critical analysis, logical reasoning skills
  • Keen attention to details
  • Understanding of basic economics (knowledge of markets a huge plus)
  • Bonus: those with a narrow, deep understanding of a STEM field/prior study in a technical subject are also encouraged to apply

    Extra tags: researcher, analyst, market research, virtual assistant, business, finance, analytics, data mining, research, marketing, consulting

The job of the insights team is to ensure that the company operates with the highest levels of intellectual honesty. At Tuft & Needle, we believe that data can be one of the most powerful tools in resolving conflicts. As a young company in a newly emerging space, there almost feels like there an infinite number of unanswered questions.

While most of the mattress industry operates in a retail/wholesale model, we are vertically integrated. So much so that we can tie our customer satisfaction scores and NPS back the raw material manufacturers that were used to supply a customer's product. We could even A/B test small variations in our physical product to ensure that new product innovations would improve our customers' experience.

Our entire e-commerce platform and admin tools were built in house by our cofounders and software engineering team. This means that we have a treasure trove of data since the earliest days of the company's existence. We've hand selected a limited number of third party platforms with APIs to ensure we have unfettered access to our data.

The team has basic reporting in place but there is incredible opportunity to expand beyond that. Not just in improving the management reporting, but beginning to derive key insights to change the course of our business.

You have the opportunity to create the data insights team at Tuft & Needle from scratch.

WHAT YOU'LL DO:

  • Train the business to access and create management reporting. We believe that creating (the right) metrics are the easiest way to increase autonomy and reduce management overhead.
  • Assist the digital product team in the design of A/B tests to improve our website.
  • Apply data analysis, predictive models and machine learning that can significantly impact the economic of the business.
  • Present insights to the various teams of the company. Partner with those teams to adjust and design their strategies using such data.
  • Determine which platform (if any) is needed to facilitate a culture of intellectual honesty and data-driven decision making.

    QUALIFICATIONS:

  • Passion to learn what drives our customer's behaviors
  • 2+ years experience in a role of similar nature
  • Experience working in a company culture that values intellectual honesty and intellectual curiosity.
  • Expertise in working with large data sets
  • Strong understanding of database architecture, statistics, regression analysis, scientific experimentation, etc.
  • An ability to teach others
  • Ability to analyze and understand business data. Furthermore, comfortable presenting actionable insights through data visualization and clear strategies that the business can act on.
  • A great attitude and patience in helping others understand what might be obvious to you, but possibly foreign to them

    TIME & BENEFITS:

  • Full time, 40 hours a week
  • Free mattress (discounts for friends and family)
  • Health benefits
  • 401k with company match
  • Employee stock options
  • Extremely generous vacation policy
  • Bi-weekly company events
  • Dress Code: It’s casual Friday every day (shorts and t-shirt friendly)
  • Snacks and drinks stocked in the fridge

    Tuft & Needle is a Phoenix-based startup founded in 2012 that is redefining the mattress industry. We design a simple, universally comfortable mattress that is the #1 rated furniture product on Amazon. Tuft & Needle is joining the vertical ecommerce revolution with the likes of Bonobos and Warby Parker by selling high quality mattresses directly to consumers over the internet.

    Made in the USA, our mattress ships right to your door in a surprisingly small box. No gimmicks, no sales tactics, 100 night trial and easy returns. Tuft & Needle was featured in Fortune, Fox Business and Dwell Magazine to name a few. Tuft & Needle is growing quickly with many opportunities. We've only begun to scratch the surface of what's possible.

Compensation (salary, bonus, and equity) is top of market, and moreover can grow very rapidly, depending on your performance.

LOCATION

Preferably at the HQ in Milan, but remote work can be discussed.

CONTRACT

Full time.

Description


As about 30 million downloads and millions of dollars in revenue over the last couple of years testify, we’ve built and continue building apps with enormous visibility and mass-market appeal. We’ve been highly profitable since the very beginning, not only due to a world-class design and engineering team, but also thanks to an absolutely outstanding data-analysis and business-intelligence group, which includes an experienced tech entrepreneur and a former McKinsey consultant. Because we distribute our apps on the App Store ourselves, not having to serve any client, we get to enjoy complete freedom in choosing what we create, and how we do it. That’s awesome, and a great challenge.

Our approach to building up our app business is extremely data driven. With about 50,000 daily downloads, and hundreds of thousands of active users, we collect and analyze huge amounts of data to better understand the drivers of our success (or failure), develop reliable predictions of user behavior and app performance, and help us make better-informed, and therefore smarter decisions. We both develop proprietary software to perform automated data analysis, as well as leverage best-in-class SaaS solutions. A recent example of the power of data analytics: largely thanks to data-driven insights, we managed to grow the lifetime value of a user of one of our apps from $0.42 to over $1. Multiply this by thousands of daily new users, and the impact on our revenues is immediately massive. Data rocks!

We are looking for brilliant, business-oriented, data-hungry individuals that are passionate about technology, and are excited to be part of a fast-growing startup. You’ll love working with us, if you are thrilled at the idea of helping us master the power of data, and use it to grow our number of downloads, retain more users, monetize better, and so ultimately be an even more valuable company, all the way to number one on a global scale, which is an incredibly tough challenge.

At Bending Spoons, we pursue extreme flexibility, and this requires everyone to be able to morph and adapt to new roles as needed. Hence, you may be exposed to a number of other areas, such as UX and UI design, software engineering, and several more. We’ll teach you what you don’t know, as long as you’re eager to learn it.

What We Offer


WORK ON BIG APPS

Our products have millions of users and generate revenues of millions of dollars every year. Your ideas and work actually matter big time. You’ll see the results and impact of your work right away: your analysis will produce insights and drive product decisions that will cause downloads, usage, and revenue to change in a matter of hours. Pursuing the right opportunities with the right priority is vital for us, and your analysis will be key to sound decision making.

BE ALONGSIDE TALENTS

Our incredibly selective hiring process ensures only extraordinary talents join Bending Spoons. You’ll be proud of and learn from your teammates. We have people with very diverse backgrounds, including a Dane that used to code firmware for integrated circuits, a Pole that worked as graphic designer at Tribal DDB in Amsterdam, and an Italian that kicked ass as McKinsey consultant in Copenhagen and London.

GROW

You’ll be tested and challenged to go beyond your limits. You’ll face some of the toughest business and technological challenges in a group where good isn’t good enough. We’re committed to seeing you develop, and we’ll assign a more experienced colleague to guide you along and help you maximize your growth. Additionally, our culture of feedback and knowledge sharing will help you absorb wisdom at every turn of the road.

BE AN OWNER

Think like a founder, take the initiative, and make an impact, and you’ll have a lightning fast career, and actually own shares of Bending Spoons. We review your performance every six months, and our assessment will be based solely on your contribution to the company. Age, tenure, or hairstyle don’t matter. You’ll be able to convert your bonuses into equity, and so own a piece of Bending Spoons soon enough.

BE REWARDED

You’ll enjoy an extremely appealing salary (top 5% of market. See above), premium equipment (we normally use the latest Apple hardware, but you get to pick yours), quality lunch (if you work from the office in Milan), paid-for, month-long annual retreats across the globe (we’ve so far been to Australia, Japan, and California. Next in line, Thailand), and generous, performance-based bonuses.

MAKE A DIFFERENCE

We’re still a small company working furiously to become the number one in the world at what we do. Join us and leave your mark on the achievement of our lifetimes. It’s hard to matter in big companies, but Bending Spoons will rely on you badly, and throw lots of responsibility at you. You’ll be involved in all important decisions and your initiative and leadership will be praised and encouraged at all times.

SEE IT ALL

To start with, you’ll get to know everything about our data sources, our key metrics, our business model and strategy, and we’ll give you a crash course on the App Store’s workings. Together, we’re going to become masters of data-driven app distribution. Be prepared to be heavily involved in areas other than data analytics too. You’ll be part of broad business conversations, and might contribute to UX and UI design, as well as take part in marketing and recruiting activities.

What We Look For


DATA ANALYSIS

A very friendly relationship with numbers, solid mathematical abilities, and great computational skills. These are typically developed through quantitative studies, such as engineering, math, physics, finance, statistics, economics, etc., but we don’t mind you having acquired them some other way, as long as they shine in you. In addition, you must be able to clearly synthesize and communicate your analysis, and derive concrete, actionable recommendations from your findings. Prior experience with tools such as R, Stata, Matlab, Python, Excel, and knowledge on statistical modeling and predictive analytics are a major plus.

PASSION FOR WHAT WE DO

A love for data and a marked interest in internet and mobile technologies, as well as smartphone apps, not only from a consumer’s point of view, but also in terms of user experience and business implications. Ask yourself if you find the idea of helping build a small company into the number one app developer and publisher in the world exciting. If you do, Bending Spoons is where you can make that happen.

ENTERPRISE

A strong appreciation for working independently, and the tendency to put forward your ideas and show initiative within your team. A rooted competitive streak and desire to contribute to improving a venture’s profitability and surpassing its competition. Previous entrepreneurial or product creation experiences, or a fascination for such things are a plus.

PROBLEM SOLVING

A structured and creative mind that enjoys and is capable of solving complex problems effectively and efficiently, as well as the ability and the desire to rapidly learn new things. Especially important is a knack for structuring complex and diverse datasets, devising smart algorithms to aid analysis, and seeing patterns in and deriving insights from the data. Creativity and inventiveness are worth lots of extra points.

TEAMWORK

A friendly and collaborative personality. If you treat everyone around you like an idiot, or are hesitant to get your hands dirty with menial tasks to help your teammates, we suggest you don’t apply. Helping each other generously is at the root of our team’s culture.

DRIVE

The willingness to take on an extremely exciting and rewarding, but also very challenging and demanding journey, which will require outstanding dedication and passion. If you like pushing yourself beyond your limits, when pursuing your ambitions, Bending Spoons is great place for you.

    YOUR IMPACT

    The ideal marketer for this position is a data junkie at heart. You proactively offer a data-driven perspective on new ideas and key strategic initiatives that will drive authentic growth for the business. You’re detail-oriented with a bias toward action and impact. Your coding and technical chops bridge the gap between marketing, product, and engineering.

    You’ll collaborate with an enthusiastic team that will support you with creative assets and the tools you need to make your work impactful.

    ABOUT THE ROLE

    • You see growth marketing as a series of sprints. You’ll spend much of your time coming up with new ideas, prioritizing them efficiently, learning as much as you can, and then feeding your learning back into the process so you can make better, more informed decisions.
    • Through an ongoing cycle of traction experiments you’ll build predictable, scalable growth channels from the ground up. You’ll validate the effectiveness of each channel for our ideal audience, asses impact and life-cycle fatigue, and then either optimize or slash your experiments over time.
    • You’ll explore data around customer behavior, conversion rates, and funnel analysis to identify points of friction and devise new ideas on how we can grow the business — all while providing customers with a better experience.
    • You’ll bring order and organization to our campaign monitoring, management, and ongoing testing across all acquisition channels. You’ll also determine the set of tools and processes needed to scale analytics with business growth.
    • You’ll develop and lead some of our existing growth projects and latest experiments. These include learning from paid campaigns on social (for content promotion and product launches), building out clever, practical ways to effectively reach our most profitable verticals of SaaS and e-commerce, and forging a deeper understanding of what actions our most successful customers take before they sign-up.

    ABOUT YOU

    • You are a curious, technical all-arounder who gets stuff done. You care deeply about the details but are able to step back and see the big picture, engineering holistic solutions from multiple and sometimes conflicting requirements.
    • You are passionate about testing, refining, and leveraging insights to accelerate growth. You push yourself to learn new tools, acquisition strategies and techniques, because let's be honest... you love this stuff!
    • You are a persuasive communicator, and complement your data analyses with qualitative insights.
    • You’re passionate about the customer experience, but you don’t let assumptions stop you from testing and trying something new every single day.
    • You have a track record of building truly innovative, rule-changing programs for driving growth.

    ABOUT HELP SCOUT

    • Help Scout is a remote team with employees in six countries and eleven states (nine people work in our Boston office). We optimize for excellence over geography and overcome locational challenges through transparency, trust, and video conferencing (learn more).
    • We’re a customer-driven company and always will be. Everything follows the customer experience, no exceptions. Everyone at Help Scout is aligned in their motivation to create content that adds value to customers.
    • Our company is growing quickly and has aspirations of helping millions of people around the world. Accomplishing our goals will present countless challenges and requires you to excel at every level.
    • This is not your typical fly-by-night startup. Our mission is to build a profitable company that goes the distance. Our culture is not built around ping-pong tables or Xboxes—it’s all about the work. We value craftsmanship, having a sustainable work/life balance, and want your career at Help Scout to be a long and satisfying one.

    WHO YOU'LL WORK WITH

    Ivana Flodr, VP Marketing - Ivana leads our marketing team to make sure content, growth, and product messaging create a seamless brand experience. Her wealth of experience and knack for pulling useful insights from mounds of data help to lead the business forward.

    Eli Overbey, Growth Data Analyst - Eli spearheads our pursuit of meaningful growth. He owns the quantitative piece of our marketing pie, managing paid channels, SEO, and data analytics. You’ll work closely with him to maximize impact for every channel—figuring out what’s working, what isn’t, and where we can improve.

    Stephen Murrill, Visual Designer - Stephen’s vision guides our brand, ensuring Help Scout is presented consistently and effectively across-the-board (he literally makes us all look good). You’ll work with him on everything from display ads to landing pages, maintaining the incredibly high standards we set for marketing deliverables.

    Mo McKibbin, Product Marketer - Mo is the voice of our products at Help Scout. You’ll collaborate with her to ensure every avenue for growth uses clear, coherent messaging. Together, you’ll work to better understand our place in the market and establish a clear-cut plan to differentiate Help Scout from other available products.

    We’re looking for a data engineer to join the growing team at DocumentCloud! If you’d enjoy a chance to help develop the next generation of our service -- an open-source civic platform that more than 1,000 news organizations use to analyze, annotate and publish documents for the public good -- we’d love to hear from you.

    This is a full-time, two-year position with full University of Missouri benefits funded by a grant from the Knight Foundation. We’re a nimble, tightly knit team that works remotely -- we stay connected via Slack and video chats -- so you can live where you’d like and work flexible hours.

    You’ll work on DocumentCloud’s processing pipeline, which makes searching and analyzing document collections accessible to journalists, to improve DocumentCloud's extraction and analysis capabilities. The pipeline consists of several open source tools wrapped up in our Ruby-based infrastructure (a Rails-driven API and our CloudCrowd parallel processing toolkit). You'll also play a key role in developing our production API capabilities, especially focused around what information we extract for users from documents and how best to do so.

    Our ideal candidate would have the following skills and qualities:

    • Independent problem-solver who values learning, keeps current on trends, and knows how to pick the right set of tools for a problem.
    • Able to write clean, well-documented code; you know your way around Git, and your Github account shows activity.
    • Strong ability to collaborate and communicate with a distributed team.
    • Ruby and Rails.
    • Experience with Unix-based systems.
    • Some knowledge of data science, linguistics, information extraction or search. SOLR experience is a bonus.
    • An interest in language and data processing.
    • Knowledge of SQL (Postgres preferred).

      You’ll join DocumentCloud at a significant time. We’re enjoying widespread use of our platform, and our tools have been used to investigate and publish stories from the grand jury decision in Ferguson, Missouri, to the Guardian's NSA spying leaks. We collaborate with organizations such as the Washington Post, The Associated Press and Mozilla's OpenNews fellows to build better ways to present the news, and you’ll have the chance to be part of the community exploring this intersection of news, data and technology.

      About DocumentCloud

      DocumentCloud is a catalog of primary source documents and a tool for annotating, organizing and publishing them on the web. We're helping journalists get more out of documents and helping newsrooms make their online presence more engaging.
