AT&T is seeking candidates for the unique opportunity to work with our massive, heterogeneous, data set.  Our group has been tasked with creating a culture within a culture; a new team with a startup mentality focused on making big data and its thoughtful use a company imperative.  You will not be yet another cog in a large internet company with a pre-existing big data machine.  You will not be driving questionable business ideas, with no resources, for a startup.  This is the opportunity to make a difference in a fortune 100 company, take advantage of AT&T’s huge resources, play with a truly unique proprietary data set, and see your creative ideas turned into real businesses.

Our data science team works as a collaborative, fast-paced, group responsible for testing hypotheses, building proof of concepts, and turning creativity into products.  We work on a mix of top-down and bottom-up projects, and are open to any ideas that can help AT&T leverage its exo-bytes of data to improve existing business lines or drive new business initiatives.

We are assembling teams to drive new and innovative ideas to our business units and our locations are in the heart of where business is happening: Palo Alto, San Francisco, Plano and Atlanta. The teams will consist of Subject Matter Experts, Data Scientist, Software Engineers, Business Analysts and other roles, resources and tools the team deems necessary for success.
