Data Scientist III, Product Analytics

Expedia Group is a truly data-driven company and as such we use data to support every decision. We are looking for a curious and hard-working individual with a strong analytical and statistical background and dedication to self-improvement.

Are you passionate about statistics and data analytics, and curious about the many ways they can be used to tackle real-world problems and drive value? Does the idea of contributing to the excellence and optimization of diverse products excite you? If you like to solve sophisticated problems while operating with minimal mentorship and you are seeking a stimulating role within a fast-paced and fun business, this could be the role for you!

Join the Product Analytics and Experimentation team at EG and help deliver and refine critically important applications and products for our diverse suppliers! Specifically, engage with business, strategy, product, and tech teams working on industry-leading communications platforms and adaptive experiences.

Your role will consist of running detailed analyses using diverse statistical methods, such as building valuation models and estimating the contribution of various elements. You will work closely with other highly skilled analysts across EG, partnering with our Product and Engineering teams as well as colleagues across Data Science, Finance and Product.

What you’ll do:

  • Extract data from multiple data sources and combine into the required datasets for model building or analytics

  • Apply supervised machine learning theory and techniques

  • Develop basic solutions utilizing standard software libraries/packages

  • Help in all activities, especially in proper model selection, regularization, and evaluation to be able to develop robust solutions

  • Apply a range of common statistical methods to business problems determining the ideal method for the problem considering underlying assumptions

  • Solidly understand hypothesis testing

  • Design complex experiments and apply common methods such as linear and non-linear aggression, multivariate analysis

  • Build end-to-end design of models based on detailed understanding of business requirements, including general approach, choice of algorithm and data sources

  • Display advanced domain (i.e., travel, online retail) knowledge, business acumen (understanding the underlying business objectives) and critical reasoning skills

  • Know and apply data visualization principles consistently resulting in clear and consistent outcomes

  • Build clear, concise, and well-structured functional material (e.g., policies & procedures, guidelines, presentations, messages) and recommend improvements to existing material

  • Tailor communications (content focus, style, format, etc.) for different audiences as appropriate

  • Understand and make recommendations on processes, objectives, and challenges and their impact on the business

  • Possess extensive experience of big data architecture (streaming events, data lakes, analytics engines) and relational database models as it relates to analytics

  • Frame Expedia's most complex business problems as an analytics problem and concrete set of analytical tasks

  • Apply others’ skills, knowledge, and expertise effectively in problem solving and delivering impact

  • Pick analytically valid approaches, appropriate in terms of level of effort, favoring iterative delivery that solves for the objective, not the ask (i.e., not just order-taking)

  • Use advanced and sophisticated understanding of the business problem space to inform the design of the solution

Who you are:

  • Bachelor's, Master’s, PhD degree in Mathematics, Science, Statistics or a related technical field; or Equivalent related professional experience

  • An impactful individual contributor who consistently applies, and sometimes enhances the analytics capabilities, principles, and playbooks to solve complex business issues and opportunities
