As the Staff Data Scientist embedded on the team, you will uncover insights on how users consume content and engage across these surfaces, and partner with product and engineering teams to drive impact from those insights through creating new features or modifying the existing user experience. You will be one of the most senior individual contributors on the team and will help lead all parts of the product lifecycle from setting strategy, driving execution, measuring results, and using learnings to inform future decisions.
