Director of Data Science
Charlotte, NC

Data Science at Red Ventures:

Data drives everything at Red Ventures. We are maniacal about metrics and in a continuous race to find ways to mine, manipulate and collect data that will give us a significant advantage over our competition.

We’re a tight-knit, fast-paced and even faster-growing team working with a large amount of complete and powerful data. From identifying opportunities to creating and deploying tests and solutions in real time settings, the Data Science team at Red Ventures drives growth for every aspect of our multi-billion-dollar business.

Role/Responsibility:

The Director of Data Science will be responsible for contributing to ongoing data science efforts, growing and scaling the data science team, and identifying significant business opportunities where data science can help. You’ll help us better leverage our full funnel of data to optimize our existing businesses, guide decisions, and set a data science strategy that will secure our position not just as a partner to clients but as a leader in the industry.

Red Ventures is a highly collaborative, fast-paced, results-driven atmosphere, which means you’ll also be counted on to mentor and guide less experienced data science analysts and serve as a business interface for the data science team by working with business teams to identify potential opportunities and to report progress on initiatives.

And, just in case that didn’t sound like enough fun, we’ll also expect you to dive into our entire business model, creating and expanding expertise in digital marketing and customer acquisition so that you can continue to maximize the impact of Data Science at Red Ventures.
