Medium's mission is to help people deepen their understanding of the world & discover ideas that matter. We are building a place where ideas are judged on the value they provide to readers, not the fleeting attention they can attract for advertisers. We are creating the best place for reading & writing on the internet-a place where today's smartest writers, thinkers, experts, & storytellers can share big, interesting ideas.
We are looking for a Senior Data Scientist who will help us build a new future for the written word on the web, as part of a team that translates data into actionable insights. Broadly, Data Scientists at Medium focus on analysis - interpreting data, sharing insights, & developing models that improve the product. We work together to analyze patterns at a macro level, answering questions the rest of the company hasn't thought to ask yet.
You'll spend most of your time working on a product team: a group of engineers, designers, a product manager, & you, the Data Scientist, all working together in a small group to build new features. You'll extract key data & findings, define metrics, evaluate A|B tests, identify opportunities based on the data, & share new insights that no one considered before. You'll bring data to bear on a set of thorny questions at the intersection of tech & media, helping us grow our ecosystem of readers & writers & build a new economic model for written content.
