Job Description

Our team, part of the Customer Success Engineering org, is fanatically focused on customer love: quantifying it, deeply understanding it, democratizing it, and improving it. We turn customer satisfaction into a signal as clear and indispensable as usage or perf, develop deep insights on what drives it, and proactively engage customers to increase it. Our team puts some science behind customer love, enabling engineering teams to better understand their issues.

We are a combined engineering & Data Science team architecting the system that underpins these efforts, including a survey system, the backend storage where we blend in telemetry and other sources to augment the signal, ML models to pinpoint drivers and find correlations, and our proactive outreach platform that interfaces with support and enables us easily orchestrate campaigns to connect directly with customers in a personal way.

5 years of experience with machine learning, natural language processing and experiment design

Experience applying statistical methods such as hypothesis testing, p-values, confidence intervals, regression, classification, and optimization

Development experience in C#/C++/Java/R/Python or similar programming language

Strong communications skills, in particular written research results and effective presentations

Familiarity with distributed data processing/analysis and modeling paradigms, such as Map-Reduce, is a plus
