WHY DATA SCIENCE & ANALYTICS?
The Data Science & Analytics organization's mission is to increase our speed, frequency and acumen of making decisions at scale by instilling a data-influenced approach to building products. We cover a wide area of the data spectrum including analytical data engineering, product analytics, experimentation, causal inference, statistical modeling and machine learning. Aligned and partnering with product teams, we use this tool-belt to discover new opportunities and unmet use cases, influence and shape the product roadmap and prioritization, build data products and measure impact on our community of players and developers.
WHY CREATOR RESOURCES?
The Creator Resources team mission is to support all creators in their journey to scale and monetize. Products that support this journey include TalentHub, Dev Forum, and resources creators use to learn such as documentation, tutorials, and videos. These products are a catalyst for growth, helping our creator community build highly engaging content that monetizes. As a data scientist, you will be an important partner to our product and engineering teams to shape the direction of this team. You will partner with data scientists, product managers, engineers and leaders across the company to better understand our creators and the resources that best support their success.
