About you: You are passionate about translating data to action. You want to change how companies conduct business by using data they have collected. You believe this change depends as much on clever analysis & intricate models as it does on clear communications & actionable insights. You are curious, inquisitive & data puzzles excite you.
About us: ActionIQ is a NYC-based startup building the next generation of data-driven business applications. We're funded by top investors including Sequoia Capital, Andreessen Horowitz, & FirstMark Capital.
The company is founded by Tasso Argyros, founder & CTO of Aster Data, a Big Data pioneer that was acquired by database leader Teradata; & Nitay Joffe, a key developer in leading open source big data projects such as Apache HBase & Apache Giraph while working at places like Facebook & Google. Both Tasso & Nitay have extensive experience applying complex technologies to solve real business challenges.
At ActionIQ, we are working on a very ambitious technology stack, where we process our entire data warehouse using proprietary main-memory distributed database technology. We are using a number of languages, tools & frameworks, including Scala. This is an opportunity to intern with a world-class company in NYC while it's still in it's early stages.
About the internship: At ActionIQ, you will work directly with our customers to enhance their operations. By the end of your summer you will have delivered analysis & built models that are regularly used by our customers for understanding their user base & executing their business plans. In addition, you will get the chance to work with a team of first rate engineers & data scientists to generalize your models & integrate them into our platform for use by other customers. Last but not least you will take advantage of all the ActionIQ summer activities in New York City.
