2. Teamwork: We are looking an individual comfortable with interacting daily with co-workers from research, finance and ad operations and be able to succinctly summarize their projections in a user friendly and concise manner.
3. Curiosity: The ideal candidate will be comfortable accepting feedback from co-workers and open to exploring new ideas & explanations behind the changes seen in Discovery’s overall digital video traffic and testing out if any of these ideas can be used to create a better forecast.



Qualifications

* 2-5 years experience creating, generating and incrementally improving forecasts are a requirement.
* Experience with digital media measurement services (Freewheel, Adobe, Comscore) are a requirement.
* Experience with linear TV viewing data (Nielsen, Comscore, Smart TV datasets) are a plus.
