Philo: TV on the Internet (TVoIP)

At Philo, we’re a group of technology and product people who set out to build the future of television, marrying the best in modern technology with the most compelling medium ever invented — in short, we’re building the TV experience that we’ve always wanted for ourselves. In practice this means leveraging cloud delivery, modern tech stacks, machine learning, and hand-crafted native app experiences on all of our platforms. We aim to deliver a rock solid experience on the streaming basics, while cooking up next generation multi-screen and multi-user playback experiences.

Data Science at Philo

Data underpins everything we do at Philo: making informed business decisions; analyzing and improving the quality of our streaming experience; running product experiments to optimize our signup flows; and making it easier for our users to find the perfect thing to watch. On the Data Science team, we’re looking for someone who is comfortable working on a variety of interesting engagement, content discoverability, experimentation, and retention-related problems across our streaming service. You’ll be working closely with other data scientists, analysts, and engineers to build and deploy solutions directly for our service. 

We are passionate about problem-solving and providing data-informed insights for the entire company using both cutting-edge techniques and proven practices in close collaboration with every department. To complete our work we build on modern open-source tools including dbt, GrowthBook, Robyn, Superset, and PyTorch as well as SaaS tools such as Segment, SageMaker, AWS Glue, Mode, Avo, and BigEye.

Some of the recent projects our Data Science team members have worked on include:

  • Modeling to determine which early product behaviors predict conversion
  • Running experiments to evaluate content personalization
  • Building data models for analysis of lifecycle marketing communications
  • Price sensitivity research and competitive market analyses

Qualifications

Philo is seeking a Senior Product Data Scientist with demonstrated understanding of statistical modeling, A/B/n experimentation practices, SQL, and experience independently developing data driven insights. This data scientist will have the opportunity to leverage massive structured, unstructured, transactional, and real-time data sets from a variety of sources, analyze financial and customer usage patterns, and make actionable recommendations to product, marketing, engineering, and business development teams. 

In this role the Senior Product Data Scientist will support the entire product development lifecycle from product ideation and opportunity sizing to measurement and experiment design, and from causal analysis and post-launch learning to the next development cycle. Senior Data Scientists at Philo contribute to mentorship and leadership on the Data team whether they are people managers or individual contributors. Individuals with prior experience with people management or an interest in people management will have the opportunity to add that responsibility to their role at Philo.

Responsibilities:

  • Build a deep understanding of how subscribers use Philo on each of our streaming platforms, including where they run into problems as well as identifying new features and defining the metrics to evaluate those features
  • Own analytics and tracking plans, within several development work streams, from metric definition and data instrumentation design to ongoing reporting and research
  • Iteratively improve our experimentation methods and establish best practices for A/B/n experiments
  • Establish curated dashboards that will serve as the primary source by which we evaluate the performance of features
  • Run queries to support ad-hoc product questions and create Mode dashboards and other visualizations for stakeholders
  • Understand user flows, user behaviors, and long-term trends in our data to identify opportunities for new features
  • Own your analytics projects, proactively identify issues and opportunities, test hypotheses, and propose solutions
  • Collaborate with groups company-wide (e.g. business development, advertising operations, marketing, and support) on KPIs, including lifetime value, retention, win-back, and content consumption metrics

Key Qualifications:

  • 10+ years of experience in a Data Science role
  • Demonstrated ability to influence product roadmaps and business decisions with data
  • Proven expertise in experimental design (including but not limited to A/B testing), principles of causal inference, and statistical techniques
  • Experience with relational databases and SQL
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills, with the ability to explain and present analytical methodology and results to non-technical audiences
  • Expert with statistical analysis in either R or Python
  • Strong analytics fundamentals – a degree in statistics, economics, a related field, or similar professional experience
  • Experience in writing production-quality code in R/Python, productionizing data models and statistical models with tools such as Git, Sagemaker, and dbt, and using software engineering best practices around version control, review, and automated testing

An Insider's view of Philo

What's something quirky about your company?

That our brand persona actually reflects the ethos of the people that work at Philo. Our team is overwhelmingly and unabashedly filled with people exuding good natured energy.

Matt

Head of Brand and Creative Strategy

What projects are you most excited about?

I can't wait to see what we can do with Philo Connect! The majority of our viewing is on connected TV devices, but those are the clunkiest to interact with. A world where your phone seamlessly acts as an extension of the TV opens up so many possibilities.

Laura

Head of Support

What makes someone successful on your team?

People on my team who are curious, interested in problem solving and not afraid to ask questions are the most successful.

Just because something has been done in this industry a certain way forever, doesn't mean it shouldn't be challenged and investigated for improvements

Reed

Head of Advertising

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Let them come forth with recommendations around how they want to spend their time, encourage them to get inspiration from outside of our company and outside of our industry. Give people room to try things even if I personally don't get it at the moment (i.e. providing safe spaces to experiment)

Nii

Head of Marketing

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe in our office is upbeat and friendly. It's a judgment-free zone that balances dedicated work and socializing really well!

Stephanie

HR Generalist
