Data Science @ Attentive
• Our vision for Attentive’s data science organization is to be a product-centric source of innovation. Data science at Attentive will partner closely with our Data & ML team, and our Product team to drive meaningful customer outcomes.
• Data science at Attentive bridges the gap between business outcomes, product, and machine learning - we have a vast and high-velocity dataset from thousands of customers (10’s of terabytes) that we have accumulated in the past few years and we are now making use of this data and crafting ML-based products to deliver personalized experiences, optimized workflows, and other product innovation throughout the team.
• Setting up a long-term source of data-informed product innovation is critical to our success. Our data science organization will be central to:
1. Make testing the default throughout our internal and customer-facing products,
2. Establish low-cost and repeatable approaches to testing new tools, technologies, and techniques, and
3. Develop a reliable and persuasive narrative to advocate for effective use of data throughout the organization
