Director of Machine Learning / Recommender/Personalization Systems
Tubi is a Series C startup in SF that offers a streaming TV and movie service, not unlike Netflix, Hulu, or Prime, but they've done at the very low cost of free.
They make money by charging advertisers, and you agree to watch some good old fashioned commercials. (The oldest trick in the book!) I banished cable years ago and have missed running shows in the background or using commercial breaks to do quick things around the house. I've loved using their service and think that you should too!
I just placed a senior Scala developer there who loves it, and the team is now hiring a Lead Scala Engineer which is where you'd come in... He thinks the biggest selling points are having highly technical teammates and a strong team/company culture.
