You are a talented, enthusiastic, and detail-oriented Scientist who wants to take on big data challenges in an agile way. Duties include developing analysis, data pipelines, and models to detect and prevent data quality issues of our most important behavioral dataset. You will work on high impact projects to analyze anomalies and design detection capabilities, create automated mitigation of downs stream impacts, provide analysis and recovery tools, and increase the overall quality and availability SLAs of our behavioral data.

You have a deep understanding of data, analytical techniques, statistical modeling, and ML techniques. You know how to connect insights to the business. In 2019 you will be one of the founding members of your team, build detection and mitigation capabilities, invest in modeling and anomaly detection, and work on automation and tooling for data quality.
