In order to accomplish this, Tubular needs to provide its customers and the industry at large with compelling video engagement insights that cannot be found elsewhere.

The Data Scientist will be as much as an hands-on contributor as every other engineer, in addition to doing exploratory data analysis, research of algorithms and modeling, error analysis, and communication of results. This is a real greenfield opportunity for the right candidate to make a name for themselves building industry leading data science.
