Pure Storage is looking for an experienced data scientist with both predictive analytics and communication skills to join us in building up a big data analytics practice. Our charter is to provide marketing decision support focusing on: the use of statistical techniques for new customer acquisition, propensity-to-buy prediction for program targeting, rules for cross/up-sell, segmentation/classification and media mix optimization.
