Data Scientist, Analytics – Instagram Ecosystems 1265 views

The Mission of the Instagram Ecosystems team is to make sure that Instagram thinks holistically about the user experience and that the company optimizes for the long term success of the app. While Data Scientists across Instagram are focused on making sure that the products they support are successful, there are important questions that fall out of the scope of a single product group or that simply fall through the cracks. These are the questions that the Ecosystems team is tasked with answering. The projects this team tackles are extremely horizontal, cross-functional, and of strategic nature. If you enjoy working on ambiguous, 0 to 1 projects, you’ll enjoy working on this team.

  • Set north star metric goals for the Instagram app.
  • Present results and recommendations to Instagram leadership.
