  • The content of each page (if it is topically relevant to a search query);
  • What other pages are linking to a given page and what are their attributes;
  • Many more metrics and variables.

We're also building our own models of calculating the "power" of a web page and it's likelyhood of ranking high in search results.

Requirements:

  • Good knowledge in a wide variety of advanced data analysis and machine learning techniques, and experience in developing solutions in response to real-world business problems;
  • Proficient with programming languages such as Python and R;
  • Good knowledge with NLP, and experience with open source NLP library such as Gensim;
  • Experience in Tensorflow, Theano, or other deep learning frameworks preferred;
  • Experience with Elasticsearch or similar DB, and ability to conduct independent research utilising large unstructured data sets;
  • Visualisation using open source tools.

  • Modern office in CBD (with amazing view)
  • No dress code
