Summary of Position

The STARZ Data Products & Engineering team is seeking a software engineer who’s passionate about drawing a thin line from data to insight and exposing that insight to internal users to support important business decisions. We’re building out a robust and consistent data acquisition system with a growing portfolio of sources and sinks which enable other teams to analyze, view and report on the data. You’ll be helping internal users gain insight into what audiences to target for marketing, how original and licensed content is likely to perform in the Starz ecosystem and beyond and helping us to integrate disparate signals into a clear picture of where the organization is at and where we can go.

 

Our users range from extremely technical (providing us with models to run and wanting tables or files in return) to less technical (providing inputs via a UI or spreadsheet and expecting results displayed in-line or in a report). This is an opportunity to exercise your technical skills as part of a highly skilled team from a variety of diverse backgrounds while helping every aspect of our business to be more efficient and more data driven.

 

Full-time remote candidates will be considered.
