Sam Brotherton, Data Scientist at Whisper


Sam has worked as the sole data scientist at a rapidly expanding social media startup seeing upwards of three billion monthly pageviews. He designed and built a natural language processing (NLP) service to extract topics and tags from posts, predict image searchterms from unstructured text, and target content to users. He implemented a new geographic search system using PostGIS that decreased search time by 90% and worked closely with the front and backend development team, writing production code in Erlang and Python.
