About the Team
The Data Science Team is responsible for research, design, experiments, and prototyping end to end solutions for search related analytical problems. We collaborate with consultants and customers to learn user needs, gather data and validate preliminary results, explore new machine learning/AI technologies, and join industry best practice with the latest ideas from academia to turn them into useful products. We work closely with engineering to put our algorithms into production and out into the world. Our research areas include deep learning, machine learning, text mining, exploratory data analysis, A/B testing, relevance tuning/assessment, data quality, time series and anomaly detection. 
 
About you 
You understand common machine learning algorithms, know when a certain algorithm is or is not the right tool for the job, and understand the impacts of different parameter settings. You have strong experience with recommendation and relevance algorithms, NLP expertise with document classification/clustering techniques and summarization. You are able to code an algorithm from scratch based on paper or ideas, invent new or modify existing algorithms, and maybe have some interesting publications or patents.
 
Most importantly, you are able to work collaboratively with a diverse community of personalities spread across multiple time zones, leveraging your excellent communication skills to make sure everyone is on the same page.

You have:

    • 5+ years of professional data science experience using Python/Scala and analytical packages such as SciKit Learn/Spark ML/Keras/Tensorflow/Pytorch 
    • A mathematics based degree, advanced preferred, or equivalent experience
    • Experience in search such as Lucene/Solr or Elasticsearch. 
    • Experience in working with search large scale data 
    • Proficiency in Python and Scala with a deep understanding of Spark.
