Job description

Will you join us on a journey to disrupt the trillion-dollar travel industry? We are looking for the best and brightest who share our passion for travellers, data and product.

FindHotel believes travel is the one thing that opens minds to new ideas, cultures, and ways of thinking. Our mission is to GET EVERY TRAVELLER THE BEST ACCOMMODATION DEAL, WORLDWIDE. From adventure travel and backpacking to honeymoons and family vacations, we genuinely care so that every traveller can make the best-informed accommodation choice at the absolute best conditions for every trip.

To further this goal we need to effectively market best deals across the globe and are looking for machine learning engineers to push our marketing efforts to new levels. As a Machine Learning Engineer you will build & deploy state-of-the-art decision support systems and bidding algorithms as well as help to automate our marketing activities. You will work across Customer Acquisition tribe supporting marketers and analysts in their scaling efforts and improving campaign management solutions.

We are looking for a machine learning expert with strong engineering skills as well as a commercial mindset. It's a great opportunity for an ambitious & motivated engineer to transform their career in a fast growing & data-driven mature startup.

What you will be doing

  • Build & optimize & deploy automated bidding algorithms
  • Give support and automate analytical processes around user acquisition
  • Improve our existing ML models (bidding, pricing, cache optimisation, demand and traffic forecast, etc.)
  • Proactively look for optimization opportunities

What a day in the office might look like:

You start the day by checking up the performance of the model which you recently deployed to production to see if any actions are required. During the daily team stand-up you present your latest findings on the possible optimization opportunities to our bidding algorithm which will allow reducing its runtime by half. After a team lunch, you'll meet with data scientists to brainstorm new ideas and prioritizing the backlog. At the end of the day, you'll set aside time to research a more effective way to calculate bidding multipliers.

The team: marketers, analysts, data scientists.
