Analytics

Data Scientist New York, New York

Description

At 605 we are engineers, analysts, data scientists, media experts, marketing strategists and political operatives. Our team of data scientists pioneered the field of TV data analytics. We offer unique, independent audience measurement and analytics to build better marketing and programming initiatives within the media and entertainment industries.
The Data Scientist role is a mid-level position in 605’s data science group, the more technical/backend-focused subgroup of 605’s Analytics team. All of the Analytics team shares a baseline knowledge of statistics and machine learning, R and/or python, and familiarity with relational databases and the scale/variety of 605’s data assets. In contrast to the client-facing side of Analytics, the data science side brings to the table some deeper technical skills, including:
• Hands-on experience with industry-standard predictive modeling solutions such as scikit-learn, xgboost, Spark ML, and H2O.ai in a production setting
• Familiarity with diverse methods for supervised learning, unsupervised learning, ETL pipelines in general
• A more nuanced understanding of cloud-based (Amazon Web Services) computing resources/infrastructure, especially the need for and methods of parallelization for analytics tasks
• Experience in designing and implementing wrapper/tool/utility functions for automated tasks, to be used by less-technical Analytics team members, and organizing them into distributable, regularly maintained and tested R/python packages
• Proficiency with source code management (git) and related code development/review workflows, as well as continuous integration tools like Travis or Jenkins
A data scientist will generally be involved in at least two different projects at any given time, managed by either the Sr. Director of Data Science or by the Sr. Director of Analytics, and the data scientist will work alongside other data scientists or analysts. Analytics projects produce both client-facing deliverables as well as internal tools/datasets consumed by various teams at 605 (Analytics itself, Engineering, and Client Solutions).

Required Skills

• Masters degree in a quantitative, scientific, or engineering field, or > 2 years experience in a data-related work environment
• Intermediate-to-advanced level proficiency in either R or Python

• Beginner-to-intermediate level proficiency of postgres SQL
• Familiarity with git and/or github.com, or any another version control framework

Valuable Skills

• Familiarity with Docker containers
• Proficiency with Apache Spark (via Scala, Python or Java)
• Past work with survey data, demographic and consumer data, and/or TV viewing data

• Able to estimate effort and tasks that go into work
• Able to communicate the need for infrastructural changes
• Able to build up skills in the rest of engineering
• Able to prioritize the minimum valuable work
• Able to avoid creating technical debt
• Comfortable voicing opinions, and surfacing problems
• Comfortable participating in team discussions
• Comfortable telling management about problems

Required Skills

• 5 years experience working directly on DevOps
• Really understands what’s happening inside computers when code is executing or data is moving (for example the dynamic behaviour of garbage collectors in practice)

Valuable Skills

• Experience building and scaling production application infrastructure
• Experience with continuous deployment in Amazon Web Services (EC2, S3, etc.) or another IaaS provider
• Comfort with scripting languages like Python, Ruby, etc.
Experience with:
• Terraform and SaltStack or another automation tool like Chef or Puppet

• Batch workflow orchestration
• Streaming ETL technology

Benefits

• Comprehensive health, dental and vision insurance for employees and their families
