System1 is looking for an experienced data science leader to join our team as the Director of Data Science for AI Automation & Optimization. In this role, you will be responsible for leading a talented team of data scientists focused on driving research and development of new cutting-edge machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms that power automation and optimization capabilities for one of the biggest real-time acquisition marketing platforms in the world - reaching 100s of millions of users every month.
The ideal candidate will have experience leading efforts researching, developing, and deploying cutting-edge machine learning algorithms to automate and optimize planning and decisioning for extremely complex dynamic systems with imperfect information. You should keep up with the latest academic research and developments in reinforcement learning (e.g. MuZero, growing-tree counterfactual regret minimization, etc) and stochastic black box optimization and intuitively understand how these algorithms can be applied to automate and optimize execution of large-scale advertising campaigns to balance both performance and portfolio risk.
With billions of data points ingested daily and the ability to impact and automate millions of critical decisions that drive the core of our business, this is a unique opportunity to build new advanced ML and AI capabilities at a company that still innovates at the pace of a startup but has the data and scale of a successful billion dollar company!
