The challenge

Adobe is looking for a Senior Data Science Engineer who will be building the next generation of data driven products. As a Senior Data Science Engineer you will be involved of all aspects of the optimization and modeling process for Adobe's Marketing Cloud platform. These include creating and reviewing high-level architectural changes, solving novel optimization and modeling problems, and mentoring others to improve their abilities to do the same. You will be hands-on, which means you will be writing code in python to implement many of these solutions and setting an example for the team in terms of your ability to produce production-quality software.

The display algorithms team manages the machine-learning and optimization internals of Adobe's suite of online advertising products. We are looking for someone with strong experience in writing production-quality object-oriented code, with enough confidence in mathematics to understand the algorithms that need to be implemented.  Ideal candidates will have a strong academic background as well as technical skills including knowledge graphs, deep learning, applied statistics, machine learning, data mining, and software development. Familiarity working with large-scale data sets and big data techniques would be a plus.

What you’ll do

  • Develop predictive models on large-scale datasets to address various business problems through leveraging advanced statistical modeling, machine learning, or data mining techniques.
  • Develop and implement scalable and efficient modeling algorithms that can work with large-scale data in production systems
  • Collaborate with product management and engineering groups to develop new products and features.   

What you need to succeed

  • PhD or MS degree in Computer Science, Statistics, Electrical Engineering, Applied Math, Operations Research, Econometrics, or other related fields.
  • Deep understanding of knowledge graphs, deep learning, statistical modeling, machine learning, or data mining concepts, and a track record of solving problems with these methods.
  • Proficient in one or more programming languages such as Python, Java and C
  • Familiar with one or more machine learning or statistical modeling tools such as R, Matlab and scikit learn
  • Knowledge and experience of working with relational databases and SQL
  • Strong analytical and quantitative problem solving ability.
  • Excellent communication, relationship skills and a strong team player.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Experience with big data techniques (such as Hadoop, MapReduce, Spark)
  • Knowledge of deep learning, experimental design, ANOVA, statistical inference, and multivariate testing
  • Knowledge of numerical or combinatorial optimization
