As a Senior Data Scientist at Red Ventures, you will create innovative software solutions to solve business problems by using advanced machine learning, statistical modeling, and optimization techniques. You will solve business critical problems inside a company that has a strong culture of measurement, testing, and optimization across all facets of its marketing, publishing, and customer acquisition activities. You will see your contributions make a material impact to the business bottom line. We welcome candidates from different backgrounds and believe that diverse, inclusive teams are better teams.

What You'll Do:

  • Design and execute multi-disciplinary data science solutions effectively and efficiently.
  • Partner with business leaders and work effectively across business, creative, and engineering groups to solve problems. Help build a positive culture across technical and business teams.
  • Provide guidance to the broader data science community within RV on the design and execution of the data science projects, especially when relevant to expertise.
  • Further the data science team’s technical capabilities by bringing novel methods from the field into RV through research, software development, and teaching others.
  • Drive the development of junior team members through mentorship and coaching.
  • Help create and promote an inclusive environment where team members feel comfortable and empowered.

What We Are Looking For:

  • 4+ yrs of professional experience in a data science role with an MS or PhD in STEM with a focus in ML, statistical modeling, or optimization.
  • Our core problems to solve are: 
    • Website Personalization - using contextual multi-armed bandits and other reinforcement learning approaches.
    • SEO Optimization - using natural language processing and generation, deep learning, and explainable supervised learning.
    • Marketplace Optimization - using forecasting, multi-level modelling, linear programming, and other constraint-based optimization approaches.

Candidates with specific expertise in any of these areas will be highly preferred.

  • Knowledge of end-to-end software development, deployment, and monitoring workflows.
    Ability to methodically understand business context, define value propositions, and formulate and solve complex data science problems.
  • Ability to clearly articulate the “why” behind proposed data science solutions to the relevant stakeholders.
  • Ability to own key deliverables and use problem solving to deliver projects on time and iterate when justified by potential, incremental value.
  • Ability to intake business requests/priorities and then prioritize bodies of work, communicating project status, timeline, and technical results to broad audiences.
  • Proficiency in one or multiple literate statistical programming languages such as R, Python, and Scala. Our data science team primarily builds production algorithms in python, but we are open to candidates with different backgrounds.
  • Experience expanding the knowledge of a data science team on topics where you have specific expertise through teaching and mentoring.
  • Experience leveraging technical expertise to identify the feasibility of potential data science projects, ensuring the team is delivering value on projects that are feasible.
  • Experience developing skills specific to a specialization or expertise through research skills like literature reviews and communication of findings.
