Position: Data Science Intern
Type: Full Time
Location: New York City,
About you: You are passionate about translating data to action. You want to change how companies conduct business by
using data they have collected. You believe this change depends as much on clever analysis and intricate models as it
does on clear communications and actionable insights. You are curious, inquisitive and data puzzles excite you.
About us: ActionIQ is a NYC-based startup building the next generation of data-driven business applications. We’re funded
by top investors including Sequoia Capital, Andreessen Horowitz, and FirstMark Capital.
The company is founded by Tasso Argyros, founder and CTO of Aster Data, a Big Data pioneer that was acquired by
database leader Teradata; and Nitay Joffe, a key developer in leading open source big data projects such as Apache
HBase and Apache Giraph while working at places like Facebook and Google. Both Tasso and Nitay have extensive
experience applying complex technologies to solve real business challenges.
At ActionIQ, we are working on a very ambitious technology stack, where we process our entire data warehouse using
proprietary main-memory distributed database technology. We are using a number of languages, tools and frameworks,
including Scala. This is an opportunity to intern with a world-class company in NYC while it’s still in it’s early stages.
About the internship: At ActionIQ, you will work directly with our customers to enhance their operations. By the end of
your summer you will have delivered analysis and built models that are regularly used by our customers for
understanding their user base and executing their business plans. In addition, you will get the chance to work with a team
of first rate engineers and data scientists to generalize your models and integrate them into our platform for use by other
customers. Last but not least you will take advantage of all the ActionIQ summer activities in New York City.
