Its holdings include renowned brands such as Fitch Group, one of the leading global ratings agencies; the Hearst Health network of market-leading healthcare companies First Databank, Zynx Health, MCG and Homecare Homebase, which provide care guidance to patients, hospitals, and insurers; and MOTOR Information Systems, Black Book and Canadian Black Book, the premier suppliers of automotive data.

The Role

Simply stated, this executive leadership position will be responsible for and resourced to create a vision of how data science can continue to transform our organization.

HBM businesses develop and market data used every day for critical functions in healthcare, transportation, and finance. At our core we leverage data and expertise to answer critical questions that come up as people do their jobs, from selecting the right drug for a patient to estimating a repair for a car. We have an extraordinary diversity of data, across industries and applications therein. Plus, were growing both organically and by acquisition (which means even more data sets!).

As successful as we are, our aspiration is to do even better. Data it at the heart of what we do but we think we can improve. Weve seen the amazing feats achieved by modern AI technology and believe we are at the beginning of a period of unprecedented innovation. Were starting an ambitious project to assist our businesses with building their products and developing new ones. This work will require handling transactional data, manufacturing information, and human-curated content. Well leverage ML, deep learning, semantic modeling, probabilistic programming, and likely pioneer some new techniques. If the idea of this much diversity, of industry, of technique, of content, excites you then we want to speak to you!

This is a hands-on role. Although you will be leading a small team, we fully expect your hands will be on keyboard often. Right now, the project is in its initial phase: the first few members of the team have been recruited, the lab space has been built out, the individual projects along our journey need to be selected and defined. We have resources, executive sponsorship at the highest levels of the company, and a multi-year commitment. What we need is an entrepreneurial leader who is passionate about modern analytical capabilities/techniques and is at home working to define, build, and (of course) execute this program.

  • Serve as an internal expert consultant to senior leadership of Hearst Business Media

  • In collaboration with the product management, content development, and engineering teams, identify opportunities to leverage data science techniques in order to create new or improve existing products

  • Evangelize the use and potential of data science within the organization and in particular the executive, product management and engineering teams

  • Recruiting

  • Engage with academic community and peer organizations to maintain a current view of technical capabilities and best practices


10+ years of experience in relevant areas of computer science, including applied machine learning, deep learning, NLP or related disciplines
