: Product Data Scientist - Ads Data Science
245 West 17th Street
New York, NY 10011

The team is responsible for placing each and every ad that Twitter serves. While placing those ads we decide how best to balance user experience, advertiser results, and Twitter revenue. Our team optimizes supply/demand, operation points and trade-offs for the ads marketplace, as well as improve product outcomes by applying data science. We routinely deliver significant improvements to our revenue, and work in a close sync with our executive staff (including our COO & CFO) due to our direct impact on Twitter’s business.

Who You Are:

You’re a data scientist with a track record of delivering results. You find satisfaction in shipping changes that deliver measurable impact in the form of immediate revenue. You apply machine learning and data science techniques when applicable, but are just as happy to implement a simple heuristic when you find it’s as effective at driving impact to your product. You’re looking to join a strong, high-performing team.

What You’ll Do:

We’re looking for a key individual contributor to drive our advertising products forward. We decide which ads to serve billions of times a day under a sub-second setting. You will ship new features and optimize existing products. You will perform rigorous analysis, understand our advertising products, experiment, make data-driven decisions, optimize for impact, and measure performance funnels.

Your team will empower you with the autonomy to make good product decisions and discover/understand the software and product stack. You’ll own significant projects end-to-end. The small teams of talented, passionate people in which you’ll work will include engineers and data scientists from across the revenue engineering organization. We work on every high-priority ads project at Twitter.

Qualification:

  • Experience using data intelligently to optimize product performance
  • Experience performing analysis on raw event data in modern data warehouse systems
  • Deep understanding of data platforms in which you’ve previously worked
  • Good understanding of how to grow and shape data tools and datasets to improve data-driven decision making
  • Ability to thrive in an unstructured environment, working autonomously on a strong team to find opportunity and deliver business impact

Bonus Points:
