What we are looking for

  • Experience in one or more of the following is a must:  Digital advertising, automated auction strategies, and/or search optimization. 

  • An ability to leverage both analytical and programming skills to work end-to-end on proof of concept models.  We have a strong background in Python and utilize AWS extensively. 

  • An ability to distill complex concepts into digestible analysis, white papers, and presentations to ensure shared understanding across data science, engineering, and product. 

  • Experience staffing, leading and mentoring a small team of data scientists (2-4). 

  • An advanced degree in Statistics, Mathematics, Data Science, or related quantitative fields 

What’s in it for you

  • Make an impact: Work directly with the management team to help grow the business.

  • Room to grow: Provi is growing fast and you should too. Learn and develop with us.

  • Benefits: Health, Dental, Vision. Very generous PTO and ½ day Fridays in the Summer.

  • Energy at work: Work out of our amazing office in River North with snacks, drinks, happy hours, etc.

  • Be a part of something big: Join a dynamic and innovative team that is working to change a major industry.

We’re on a rocketship. And we’re only going up! Working at Provi is a chance to take your career to the next level. By joining the company now, you’re getting an opportunity to grow as we grow. And, personal growth opportunities are limitless here. If you can dream it, you’re given the tools you need so you can do it.
