The Role:

We are looking for a highly numerate Java Developer to work on the development of big data machine learning applications for ad targeting. We are recruiting both senior and junior roles. This is a rare opportunity to be involved in creating an automated system to optimize hundreds of real-time interactions per second with online customers, and to quantify the benefits created against control groups in a live environment.  The work involves analyzing billions of records of ad-serving opportunities, ad-serves and ad-serve responses to understand what factors explain the variance in expected response value.  That understanding is then to be harnessed as an automated optimization process capable of intelligently finding and servicing the most favorable ad-serving opportunities in a way that leads to higher returns on our clients’ advertising investments.  Guidance is available from a senior analytical party who will support the work.
