Data Scientist, MediaGuard at HUMAN
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
