About the role:

The machine learning team is responsible for features which automate finding insights for our users, so that they can maximally leverage their data, while we do the heavy lifting. The models we build use a mix of machine learning, data science and raw statistics; we are pragmatic and will use the simplest approach that works. In addition to the R&D for our models, we are also responsible for putting them into production and maintaining them. This team is ideal for someone who is passionate about both machine learning and production engineering.

  • Anomaly detection, and explanations of anomalies
  • Automatic detection of interesting segments of users
  • Smarter correlation analysis
  • Predicting user conversion

We’re looking for someone who:

  • Has at least 3 years of experience, writing highly performant backend code and/or using machine learning or data science to build product features. Experience with machine learning at scale is a big plus.
  • Knowledge of the Clojure programming language is a plus, as most of our team's services are written in Clojure.
  • Meticulous attention to detail, a passion for writing high quality software, and a love of data and statistics.
  • US work authorization
  • MS or PhD in Computer Science or related field

The Tao of Mixpanel Engineering:

  • Have empathy for each other. We’re all in this together, assume good intentions.
  • Listen to people’s ideas. Seek the truth, don’t just fight for your idea.
  • Demonstrate ownership and demand autonomy.
  • Have a strong bias to action. Get something working first and then iterate. When you’re pressed for time, cut scope, not quality.
  • Work smarter, not harder. Prioritize ruthlessly. Dive deep and understand the problem. Know what success looks like. Be #DataDriven.
  • Care about your craft. Always be learning.
