We are looking for an experienced Data Science Executive to lead a newly-created Content Optimization team where we have the mission to use modern data science to improve decision-making relating to the distribution and development of media content. In this role, you will look across our brands, platforms and 3rd party distribution partnerships to assess the frequent, multi-million dollar decisions on content. Improving these decisions has the potential to build competitive advantage and unlock value in a rapidly evolving media marketplace. In facing this challenge, the company is seeking to use the highly distinctive data assets that it owns across linear TV channels and streaming services such as Paramount Plus and Pluto, to deliver unparalleled insight on consumer and content trends.
In this role, you will build an industry leading team of data scientists who will work across our brands and platforms to create predictive models that support highly critical “big-ticket” content distribution and development decisions. This will be achieved in collaboration with our other data science and research groups to evolve the roadmap of data science insights/products at the company.
The role reports to the EVP, Strategic Planning and will involve extensive interaction with senior executives across the company. This represents a uniquely exciting opportunity for a data science leader to deliver impact at a leading company in a rapidly-evolving industry.
