Intent Media isn’t your usual company. Our work is powered by the premise that every person at Intent Media is unique and possesses a distinct set of skills, personality, and passions. We embrace our collective talents to tackle technical challenges, refine our successfully disruptive business ideas and co-create one of the most human and inspiring work cultures out there. We are a team of collaborators who value and reward shared success over individual heroics.
As a member of our Data Science team, you will use your quantitative expertise to identify new areas of research and optimization, and then see those ideas through to production. Data Science is a fundamental contributor to Intent Media’s success - your work will have a direct and tangible impact on the business.
There are no typical projects, but a workflow might involve performing research and analysis against petabytes of historical data using our collection of large-scale analytics tools like Spark, Snowflake, and RedShift, building prototypes using mostly Scala or another functional language, pairing with engineers on the Modeling and Prediction team to harden and deploy the functionality, and running live tests to monitor the results.
All of these steps take place in an environment of respect and collaboration, and the Data Science team is empowered to own its agile processes. Every member of the team is expected to be both a student and teacher, and we believe that the most effective Data Science team is one that is collectively learning and growing. Experience in coaching and mentoring colleagues at all levels is strongly desired. As part of the Data Science team, you’d help build out a real-time predictive analytics platform that makes decisions for some of the largest sites on the web.
