What You Will Be Doing: A Sample Day in the Life of a ADSE
8:30-9am, Planning: Plan out the day and post your top 3 goals to our daily-standup channel on Slack. Coordinate with team members where needed.
9-11am Deep Work: Prototype a minimum viable logistic regression model in a notebook to predict whether a particular segment of customers is likely to request a refund for their purchase in the next 14 days based on features like prior returns, use of offer codes and whether they purchased on mobile or desktop.
11am-11:30am Internal Team Meeting: Review a Tech Spec presented by the Software Engineering team on how we could generalize a segment performance evaluation metric on an automated basis. Discuss specific client instances that would help inform the engineering team’s design.
11:30-12pm Client Meeting #1: Present the findings you prepared yesterday for a segmentation model that incorporates purchase recency, frequency, and basket size. Walk through data distributions, correlations and other important visualizations to build consensus with the client on the segmentation thresholds.
12-12:30pm Lunch & Learn: Watch a team member teach the basics of Kubernetes and how it supports our tech stack at various levels while you munch on lunch.
12:30-2pm Segmentation Modeling: Follow up on the feedback received from Client Meeting #1 to apply the new segmentation thresholds. Submit for code review to another team member.
2-2:30pm Debugging Session: Pair programming with a teammate to diagnose and fix a data pipeline issue. Share the results of your findings with the broader team and add alerts to catch this error preventatively in the future.
2:30-3pm Performance Analysis: Analyze the results of the existing segments running across Marketo and Google AdWords. Collect notes to present later at a client meeting.
3-3:30pm Client Meeting #2: Review the performance of existing segments with a client for statistically significant results. Make suggestions for increasing media spend for successful segments or otherwise pivot that segment to a new channel like email for a second experiment.
3:30-4pm Pushing to Production: Incorporate feedback on the code you submitted for review at 2pm. Ping the team member that reviewed your code for a quick clarification, and then resubmit for final sign-off before pushing code to production.
4-5pm Presentation Development: Incorporate the results of the regression model this morning into a few slides to review insights and findings before proceeding with further refining feature engineering and algorithm selection.
5-5:30pm Messages: Answer any open questions on Slack or Email from clients and other team members before signing off for the day.
What Makes You Standout
We are a collaborative team that strongly believes in taking the learner's mindset to everything we do. This role will have the opportunity to learn how to apply machine learning / artificial intelligence models to some of the most important problems businesses face.
