About the team:

Classifieds is shaping the future of local commerce by bringing people together through an enriched online experience that allows them to reach out to the community around them. We are comprised of more than 1,000 people who are passionate for local trade and maintaining the customer-centric nature of the Group, while exploring growth opportunities in both the countries where eBay Classifieds Group already has a presence and in prospective markets.

In the online classifieds business it is key that we know what chance an advertisement has of being of interest to a buyer, enabling us to rank the advertisements we show accordingly. As a working student/intern you will be supporting our data scientists in crunching data to model click probability and propensity to place a reaction to an advertisement. Many characteristics determine the chance that an advertisement will be clicked on by a buyer; you can think of ad quality, buyer characteristics, the position and type of placement of the ad on the site, etc.

Your tasks will include running and writing Python/Spark jobs to extract data, testing and validating which characteristics can improve model performance. You will work closely with our data scientists and engineers, will build up a lot of hands on experience in working with online data and get to use tools like Python, Spark, R and Hive in a real business setting.

Requirements:

  • You are an ambitious and driven student who loves to solve quantitative problems.
  • You are in your third (or higher) year of your university studies in a field such as computer science, mathematics, physics, or any STEM field.
  • You have working knowledge of Python (mandatory) and/or Spark (nice to have)
  • You are comfortable working with large datasets and data wrangling (SQL skills would be great)
  • You have basic knowledge of machine learning and statistics
  • Pro-active and willing to develop your data skills

We love creating opportunities for others by connecting people from widely diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and geographies.
