Who We Are

Twitter is looking for a Data Scientist to join our Data Services team. This team is uniquely positioned to help external customers & internal teams build analytics to maximize value from Twitter data -- utilizing more than 100 fields of metadata per Tweet, at the scale of 500 million Tweets per day.

  • Value reproducibility and documentation of analysis approach, code, and results

  • Have comfort navigating a complex data infrastructure (many different data stores with different access methods)

  • Are able to own and lead a technical project or operate as a contributor on a teammate’s project, often at the same time.

  • Have experience managing projects to fit scope and timeline requirements

  • Are able to synthesize and communicate analysis results clearly to stakeholders

  • Are a team player willing to pitch in and work collaboratively to support team success

  • Reliably initiate (share & seek) continuous learning and growth opportunities

  • Are passionate

 

And you may also:

  • Have experience in text analysis and natural language processing

  • Have experience with distributed data tools like Scalding, and the Hadoop ecosystem

  • Have project management experience

 

Requirements

  • 3+ years commercial experience in data science

  • Extensive experience with a scientific computing language (we work in Python)

  • Extensive application of statistics, machine learning techniques, and hypothesis testing
