Smule Job Description

As a company focused on social music creation, Smule is in a position to leverage many types of interesting data, including social interactions and musical performance audio.

You'll be helping us improve our social music recommendations and other data-driven services. You should be able to use data to identify potentially beneficial changes, then implement and evaluate these changes.

You must be largely self-driven; we have a small data team, and as such you can make a large impact, but part of your responsibility is carving out your own niche.

You should be comfortable with software engineering, math, statistics, and machine learning, and be able to wear many "hats" and switch between them. This is not strictly an analyst role; you will be responsible for creating data products with direct visibility from users.

Requirements
  • Masters/PhD degree in STEM field
  • 5+ years programming experience
  • 2+ years research experience
  • Background in statistics and machine learning
  • Familiarity with "big data" tools: Hadoop/Hive/Spark
  • Basic knowledge of SQL
  • Interactive data exploration in Python/R
  • Creative thinking & problem solving skills
  • Good communication & writing; ability to eloquently form an argument backed up by data
  • Integrity and high standards
Bonus Skills:
  • Audio signal processing
  • Basic knowledge of "how music works"
  • Data visualization
  • Experience with Scala and/or Apache Spark
