We’re Tailify — an award winning influence marketing company based in London. Our purpose is to advance the science of influence. At Tailify we combine human and machine intelligence to define and bring forward the influence economy. We use data and psychology to map out influence in social networks and leverage it to help brands earn influence. We were named 2019’s Best Influencer Marketing Company in Europe. We're also a cold-headed, warm-hearted team of human beings seeking to transform ourselves and the world.

Our Challenge
While influence marketing is the most authentic, trustworthy way for consumers to discover products and services aligned with their interests, 98% of global ad spend today still goes to ineffectively and non-consensually buying people’s attention. What is holding back brands from going all in on influence marketing is inconsistent ROI from influence campaigns, which is rooted in the challenge of influencer selection. There are ~100M influencers in the world, and brands don’t have time to take each one out for dinner to find out if they’re a good match. We at Tailify are building a system to automatically match brands and influencers to maximise ROI so that each cause has the best chance of finding their champions. Solving this problem will nurture a world where marketing is predicated on trust and speaks to our deepest aspirations, and where the wealth of influence is owned by individuals rather than trillion dollar tech giants.

We’re looking for a data scientist to join our team, solve this problem, and bring forth the influence economy.

  • Interested in behaviour and psychology
  • Experience querying SQL, NoSQL, Graph or ElasticSearch databases
