    Job Spec: Talented Data-Scientist Developer for a Better World
    Want to make a better world? We’re hiring a data-science-savvy developer to work on machine learning / AI that raises money for charity and empowers internet users.
    Salary: £30,000 – £45,000 depending on experience + share options
    Location: Edinburgh
    Flexible working and part-time / job-share options are available.
    This is an exciting chance to apply cutting-edge machine learning / AI / data-science work in a worthwhile way, working with a top team.

    About Good-Loop Ltd
    Good-Loop takes money from advertisers, and gives it to charities.
    But Good-Loop is not itself a charity: we do this by making ads more effective, and we make a healthy profit on each ad. We are turning ads from a nuisance to be blocked, into a shared positive moment which funds social and environmental good. We also believe in treating internet users fairly, empowering them to be partners in the advertising and data ecosystem. Clients include Unilever, Kit-Kat, and Pepsi and we’re on track to over £1m in ad spend this year.

    About the Job
    Key tasks are:

      Predicting prices on the ad-exchange.
      Optimising our performance in ad-placement and bidding for media space.
      Extracting useful profile data from unstructured text and activity.
      Presenting data back to users.

    Digital advertising creates a lot of data. This role will lead on making that valuable to the company, thereby enabling us to achieve more.
    You’ll be working with a world-class team: Dr Daniel Winterstein, an expert in applied AI, and Amy Williams, an international award winning entrepreneur, plus the rest of our great team. You’ll be doing software development and research — expect to do and learn a lot.
