Data Scientist Intern 2013 Redfin
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED Redfin is looking to revolutionize the $40B/yr residential real estate industry, by pairing our online home-buying and selling applications with the best darn agents we can find. Most traditional real estate agents spend more than 70% of their time prospecting for new business, but we?ve built a better mousetrap. By meeting our clients almost exclusively through Redfin.com we?ve brought web-scale to the business, letting our agents focus on delighting current clients rather than looking for new ones.
We?re looking for a couple of sharp college sophomores and juniors to join us for the summer and delve into terabytes of data to answer questions about how to recommend the right agent for each customer, which homes for sale are the best value, and how to give our customers an unfair negotiating edge. You?ll work closely with Product Management to turn your insights into data-driven products and help the real estate team to streamline our operations.
You: You're a sophomore, junior or senior in college with coursework in stats, probability, and/or machine learning. You might be majoring in Math, Stats, CS, or a similar technical concentration. You?re constantly curious and don?t stop at answering ?what? questions; you are always asking ?why? and ?what if?? You sweat the details. You have a natural drive to move fast and deliver actual results. Most importantly you have fun at work, enjoy learning and teaching, and work well in a team.
The Tools: Our data is mostly in Hadoop and Postgres. We query with SQL, PIG, and HIVE. We analyze in R and Excel. And sometimes we even code a little in VBA and Python.
What you'll get from us: Far more responsibility than internships at a big company, with problems that stretch your creative and quantitative skills. You?ll have the chance to make a concrete impact on our business while working with new technology and learning from some of the best data hackers in the biz. Plus you?ll do it all in style in sunny downtown Seattle (yes, Seattle is beautiful in the summer!)
