As a Data Visualization - Human-Computing Interaction (HCI) Scientist in our Decision Sciences Visualization team, you will create innovative visual analytics systems that reveal, explore and explain complex patterns and phenomena from Epsilon’s peta-scale and massively-dimensional digital marketing ecosystem. You will reduce this complexity into sophisticated, interactive visual metaphors and stories that demonstrate the business value of Epsilon’s platform directly to our stakeholders and global customers (which includes some of the world’s largest brands). Our visualization challenges span hundreds of millions of highly detailed individual profiles across hundreds of millions of web sites and apps tied together by sophisticated real-time analytics that make near instantaneous decisions on messaging to those profiles trillions of times a day. This provides an incredibly rich environment of business questions and answers that are hidden within petabytes of data. 

You will be a key member of a highly talented and multi-disciplinary R&D team creating a full-stack visual analytics system that connects to big data platforms and machine learning systems to present complex enterprise-critical information in an engaging, intuitive and informative manner. This is a multi-faceted team effort involving an array of technologies such as D3.js, React, Python, Spark, SQL, Hadoop, Elastic Search, GPU clusters and more.

  • Work closely with the Analytics and Decision Sciences teams to understand intricacies of the AI and machine learning models in such a way that we can demonstrate to the client how those models interact with their customers
  • Develop an understanding of Epsilon’s Digital Media Solutions (DMS) personalization platform and proprietary datasets
  • Be a supportive and positive contributor in a highly collaborative, multi-disciplinary R&D team with shared and overlapping responsibilities, all in support of a strong mission with purpose and proven results

Qualifications

  • Extensive experience creating rich human-computer interfaces with React, Typescript and JSX

An Insider's view of Epsilon

What's something quirky about your company?

We have a company band, made up of anywhere from 30 to 40 employees at a given time. The band has a large following and performs at charity events around Chicago. They also perform a full set at Epsilon’s holiday party each year at the House of Blues. My jaw hit the floor when I saw my peers up on stage rocking out.

Paul

Associate Automation & Infrastructure Engineer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We collaborate through storytelling. It’s not ‘how’ we build it, but rather ‘why’ we build it. We need to tell stakeholders a story about a consumer pain point, solving it in a differentiated manner and the larger vision. Then, collaboration occurs as we incorporate feedback and have a motivated team building towards a shared vision.

Matt

VP, Product Management:

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Conversant has a very good work-life balance, including unlimited PTO. As a young adult, traveling around the world is one my top priorities and working with a company that aligns with that is a huge plus. I have had the flexibility to visit 7 countries. That flexibility is one of many things that has kept me at Conversant for five years.
