Our goal is to listen, engage, and activate voices across Red Ventures to ensure that all identity groups and perspectives are represented in our work. Our aspiration is to have diverse teams at every level of the company, and we seek candidates who bring unique personal experiences, curiosity and an eagerness to embrace diversity, equity, and inclusion.

At a Glance

Launch Your Career: As a Launch cohort intern, you will skip the “entry-level” “grunt-work,” and start making a real impact on Day 1. As part of the Red Ventures Launch program, you’ll find unparalleled opportunities to make a real impact and advance your career – fast. As a Red Ventures intern, you'll be expected to contribute new ideas, take ownership of meaningful projects, and make a real impact on our business.

Already know where you want your career to go? Looking to explore some options first? (“All of the above” is a perfectly valid answer.)

Typically, RV interns own 1-2 large projects over the summer. With guidance from your manager, you'll drive strategy, build tests, pivot, improve, and iterate until finally presenting results to your business team and RV senior leadership at the end of the summer.

What You’ll Do

  • Help the Red Ventures Red Platforms team push technology forward in one of two disciplines. First, through applied reinforcement learning - you'll work to apply state of the art reinforcement learning methods to sequential decisions making problems in the RV digital marketing ecosystem. Learn, iterate, and develop POCs of technology that could meaningfully impact the way we handle our 300MM+ monthly web sessions. Second, through graph embeddings - you'll leverage graph neural networks to create meaningful representations of our user journeys and properties for use in existing data driven applications. Evaluate and apply state of the art methodologies to meaningfully impact our deployed data solution and unlock new opportunities.
  • Use advanced machine learning, statistical modeling and optimization techniques to build real-world solutions for online and offline decision-making
  • Own data science projects from start to finish with limited guidance
  • Collect and mine data from disparate data sources, digging deeper to understand the process behind the data
  • Communicate effectively with business and data science leaders on project status, timeline and technical results
  • Translate business opportunities into data science problems, clearly defining project scope + performance metrics to measure success
  • Our culture is built on feedback, and our interns are no different. You’ll receive two structured performance reviews over the summer, where your manager will work with you to identify key strengths, opportunities, and goals. Top-performing interns will be eligible for full-time offers at the end of the summer.

What We’re Looking For

  • Graduating Winter 2022 or Summer 2023 with a PhD in Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics, or Operational Research
  • Summer 2022 start date
  • Specialization in at least one of the following areas: reinforcement learning, deep learning, natural language processing, knowledge graph, optimization or casual inference
  • Application experience on recommender systems, customer journey modeling or advertising preferred
  • Experience solving complex problems through the use of predictive modeling
  • Extensive experience in querying and processing data from complex relational databases
  • Extensive training and knowledge in machine learning, statistical modeling and/or optimization. 
  • Expertise in deep learning, NLP, reinforcement learning, recommend systems preferred
  • Demonstrated ability to synthesize data into actionable insights and communicate recommendations to leadership
  • Solid interpersonal and communication skills, with a track record of working well with business stakeholders
  • Knowledge of digital attribution and digital data investigation and testing skills is preferred
  • Statistical programming knowledge (e.g., R or Python) is required
