  • Run A/B tests and experiments, perform statistical analysis and fine-tuning using test results
  • Train and retrain systems when necessary
  • Develop processes and tools to monitor and analyze model performance and data accuracy
  • Own and lead end to end data analysis to improve and optimize performance, capture meaningful insights and turn them into business advantages
  • Assess the effectiveness and accuracy of new data sources and data gathering techniques.
  • Build visibility of key business metrics across teams through effective reporting and dashboarding
  • Coordinate with different functional teams to implement models and monitor outcomes.

What You’ll Need

  • Bachelor’s degree in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics), or Economics. Advanced degree in related topic is a strong plus
  • 3+ years of experience in statistical modelling / machine learning, applying these methods to solve product problems
  • Strong strategic aptitude: ability to define and measure success of a product or feature based on user behaviour analysis on large data sets
  • Demonstrated ability to take ambiguous problems and solve them in a structured, hypothesis-driven, data-supported way
  • Strong storytelling: distil interesting and hard-to-find insights into a compelling, concise data story
  • In depth knowledge of developing and implementing statistical/ML models (i.e., both supervised and unsupervised) using industry standard tools – R, Python and Java
  • Advanced working knowledge of SQL language, and experience with visualization tools
  • Previous experience in consumer internet industry would be preferred
  • Strong presentation and communication skills with the ability to explain complex analytical concepts to people from other fields
