Overview

RStudio creates great software that helps people understand data and make better decisions in real-world applications. Our core offering is an open source data science toolchain, and we aim to make it available to everyone, regardless of their economic means.

This Internship will focus on helping share data science customer stories. Customer stories and conversations are a critical source of information, both for the data science community and for product teams, and RStudio has many such conversations with our customers.

What you’ll be doing:
  • Ā Build a repeatable and scalable framework and process for managing and sharing customer stories, both internally at RStudio, and to the wider data science community.
  • Start with raw content (primarily recorded videos), and automate as much as feasible, including tagging the videos (according to topic, theme, etc.)
  • Generate transcript to make the content searchable.
  • Build an extensible dashboard to monitor and manage to process, and make the content easily discoverable.
About you:
  • You will have knowledge around automation (via scripting, etc.), video tagging, presentation design, APIs, and Shiny (or similar) based applications.
  • You have a willingness to find unique solutions for bringing together disparate sources on information.
  • You are able to consolidate and share them from one central repository.
