At HUMAN, we know who’s real. We are the global leader in bot mitigation. We protect more than 200 enterprises—including the largest internet platforms—from sophisticated bots by verifying the humanity of nearly one trillion online interactions every week. The most sophisticated bots look and act like humans when they click on ads, visit websites, fill out forms, take over accounts, and commit payment fraud. We stop them.

Founded in 2012 in a Brooklyn sci-fi bookstore, our Bot Mitigation Platform protects enterprises from the sophisticated bots that threaten them. It’s an ongoing war that we fight passionately every day. Join our mission to stop bots, disrupt the economics of cyber crime, and keep it human.

The Data Science team at HUMAN is at the heart of what we do - finding and stopping bots. We build the algorithms that run behind the scenes analysing and decisioning more than 10 trillion events per week. We deploy state-of-the-art statistical and machine learning models that need to work at massive scale while also being robust to common fraudster tactics of evasion and deception.

MediaGuard is our product for advertising platforms, allowing real-time insight for customers into which advertising opportunities are fraudulent bot-driven events.

Who you are
  • You’ve got solid experience (at least 2 years) of solving large-scale data science problems in ad-tech or a closely related domain (such as e-commerce or web analytics).
  • You know enough about how the internet/web works to give a convincing explanation of DNS / HTTP / JavaScript.
  • You are fluent with Python and SQL and familiar with related tools, libraries and platforms (e.g. Jupyter, Pandas, NumPy etc).
  • You have a strong sense of ownership which drives you to find ways to keep moving forward in the face of uncertainty.
  • You’ve mentored more junior data scientists and helped them grow.
What you'll do
  • Establish yourself as a technical leader at HUMAN. First by understanding our detection methodology and how data science fits in, then by using your experience to identify where we can improve and making that improvement happen.  
  • Evaluate and implement data analysis strategies to improve detection efficacy at internet-scale.
  • Influence detection strategy and aid our leadership in understanding the detection impact of new initiatives.
  • Collaborate with product, engineering and customer success to define and develop new data-intensive product features that will delight our customers.
  • Research for case studies with our partners on botnets, fraud and abuse in online advertising.
  • Contribute to toolkits and platforms that scale detection analytics.

An Insider's view of HUMAN

What's something quirky about your company?

HUMAN has a great deal of humor ingrained in our culture! Having fun, generous people to collaborate with is such a force multiplier and makes our office feel less like an org structure and more like friendship. This makes all the difference when solving hard, structural problems like the integrity of the web.

Aaron

Engineer

What does your typical day look like?

I start my day with code reviews then have a standup with my team to go over tasks undertakings. A bit of brainstorming and pair programming with one of the developers which leads to a nice break involving lunch/snacks and/or video gaming/card games with the team and then I'll finish up tasks or carry over the remaining tasks to the following day.

Vane

Backend DevOps Engineer

What are some things you learned at the company?

Exceptional culture and mission can enable us to live meaningfully and accomplish the greatest work of our lives. If I’m spending 1/3 of my waking hours working, I want to solve complex problems and design experiences that make the world a better place with a team that inspires me to be the best version of myself. I discovered part of my ataraxia!

Diana

Manager, UX & Research

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We always encourage team members to experiment with new technologies and explore their use cases in our products. We know that technology is ever changing and never stays the same. If you are not pushing forward then you are probably going backward. That's why we are creating a culture that encourages creativity and innovation

You will be a part of the Detection Tools team. The adversaries HUMAN encounters in our day-to-day aren't just bedroom hackers. They are technically adept and savvy fraudsters, operating at a scale and agility that makes their 'enterprise' profitable. Therefore, our detection team needs the support of experienced software engineers who build quality systems that are resilient to change. We support internal detection teams to perform their job at their best and this is why you're key to our mission. We incarnate the principle of Tau: find the levers for disproportionate impact inside the company.
