Data Scientist - Analytics @ Zemanta

Opis delovnega mesta

We are looking for a Data Scientist with data analytics / BI experience and a software engineering passion. This position is at an intersection between engineering and data analysis.

What will you do?

You will help our business teams scale their businesses by providing advanced data analytics, and enable data scientists to better track their A/B tests through creating analytics dashboards.

Advanced analytics: You will be performing advanced data analysis on terabytes of data (SQL - BigQuery, Postgres, Vertica, Prometheus, Druid, ...) and create insightful dashboards (Redash, Grafana, Google Sheets with BigQuery connector, Tableau, ...).

Close to people and business: You'll work closely with our business leads, product managers, customer success managers, data scientists and software engineers. Often you will need to tell a story with your data, translate complex ideas into digestible chunks and explain how things are.

Close to the domain: Online advertising is a very vibrant eco-system. Every advertisement we show online goes through an intricate real-time auction process (and we do that dance over a million times every second) with many stakeholders. You'll master the ins-and-outs of it.

Close to code: Most of our data is already available in queryable databases, but not always - so you might need to create or modify some data pipelines yourself (Go-lang, Kafka). Sometimes you'll wonder what a specific column in a database means, so you'll check in the code where the data comes from and how it's processed.

Close to machine learning algorithms: You will be a part of the Data Science team, so you will be exposed to cutting-edge machine learning algorithms in production. The team will explain to you how each of our systems work, what they do, what assumptions they make and how they affect the business. This will be crucial in your understanding of our data.

Grow immensely: this is a unique opportunity to expand your knowledge toolbox as you'll be exposed to an incredibly dynamic range of responsibilities and the best people around! We are very excited to get you on board!

Od kandidatov zahtevamo

- Hacker mentality - dig deep, make good trade-offs, move quickly
- Experience working with BI / data analytics
- Strong data processing skills in SQL
- Good programming skills in any programming language (we mostly use Go and Python)
- Enthusiasm for working with data and spreadsheets
- You set very high standards for yourself

O podjetju

At Zemanta we're building the most advanced native advertising platform in the world. Marketing agencies love our dashboard - they use it to run native advertising campaigns that reach millions of people every month. In July 2017, Zemanta joined Outbrain (the world's largest content recommendation company) on their mission to help anybody discover great content.

Zakaj bi želel delati za vas

We solve hard problems: like processing over a million bid requests per second efficiently, keeping tens of thousands of advertising campaigns in sync across multiple 3rd party systems and managing a database with billions of entries and >100k qps. Each of those bid requests relies heavily on our machine learning algorithms.

We use the right tools for the job: Our stack includes: Go, Python, BigQuery, AWS, Kafka, Aerospike, PostgreSQL, Hadoop, Docker, Prometheus, Grafana. We use Github for managing code, Jira for keeping track of projects and Slack to tie it all together. Our machine learning algorithms are in-house developed in either pure Go or TensorFlow. BigQuery allows us to whizz through TBs of data for analysis using SQL.

We build things that matter to our users: Engineers work closely with our product team to understand how customers use our product. This helps us make better decisions when building new features.

We care about quality: We don't just want things done, we want them done right. We cannot imagine life without continuous integration, one-click automated deployments, code reviews, technical specs, architecture design reviews and unit tests. We find beauty in simple and elegant solutions and flexible architectures.

We push people out of their comfort zone: If you want to grow, you'll get all the responsibility you can handle. Our engineers take full ownership over projects, which includes everything from defining a solution with product managers, planning, architectural design, implementation, testing, deployment and maintenance. If this sounds overwhelming, don't worry - you'll get plenty of support from more experienced members of the team.

We are a small team with global impact: Since joining Outbrain we've become a part of a global engineering team, which opens up lots of new opportunities for us. We collaborate with engineers and product managers based in Tel Aviv on a daily basis. That said, we're still Zemanta - a closely-knit team with distinct identity.

We constantly try to improve: We share knowledge through internal weekly tech talks, postmortems, code reviews, blog posts, meetup talks and go to best engineering and data science conferences.
