We partner with the product and search science teams to power deeply personalized digital experiences across all of Nike's digital platforms. We also bring expertise in statistical inference, predictive modeling, experimental design and analysis, and unsupervised learning to understand our content, our consumers, and content retention and conversion value. We complete the circle back to our partners in content creation to help build an industry leading content ecosystem and member experience.
Our team has a collaborative, open, considerate, intellectual, problem solving style. We tackle big problems and drive innovative solutions in online learning, personalization, computer (image and video!) vision, image and video creation, predictive and temporal modeling, advanced metric creation, and statistical inference. We are leaders helping define how Nike will plan, greenlight, produce, serve, and think about content-centric digital experiences and content creation.
