We use ML to spot adversarial online messaging, understand the audiences behind them, present context such as source credibility, and help customers respond.

PeakMetrics has been battle-tested on some of today’s most complex media issues – from responding to crisis management situations to combating state-sponsored disinformation.

As a Data Engineer, you will collaborate and work closely with the data/product/engineering teams. You will take ownership over a vast amount of data, implementing crucial data crawling capabilities and manipulating data structures to obtain solutions and insights.

  • Build analytics tools that utilize the data pipeline to provide actionable insights into customer acquisition, operational efficiency, and other key business performance metrics
  • Work with internal and external stakeholders to assist with data-related technical issues and support data infrastructure needs

  • Have familiarity with in-memory databases and other database types (e.g. graph dbs, vector dbs) a plus.
  • You identify and document customer requirements when on-boarding new data assets for data analysis and data science work.
  • You have supported the data needs of ML / data science teams
  • You are able to define and communicate data architecture requirements, keeping current with data management best practices.
  • You have maintained data management systems and participated in the design and development of new data pipelines.
  • Have experience running large scale web scrapers, working with APIs and open source datasets
  • Familiarity with social media and search APIs.
  • Ability to work collaboratively across teams
  • You are Curious - You want to understand how the data you work with is used and get to know new codebases.
  • You have excellent communication - Your clarity of thought is always apparent in your crisp and articulate emails, Slack chats, phone calls, and in-person conversations.
  • You ask questions to better understand the context around your work and what you need to do to be successful.
  • Remote co-working skills - We are 100% remote and distributed across multiple time zones, and we use remote collaboration tools (e.g. Slack, Notion, GSuite, Zoom) to stay connected and productive.
