At Dailymotion, we‘re storytellers. We build the best place for people to enjoy the videos that matter. We do this through utilizing and developing cutting-edge technology and pushing the envelope to bring discoverable stories to life through premium content from the world’s best publishers. We do this by helping these publishers grow their audiences and monetize their content, their way.
Dailymotion is seeking a Research Machine Learning Scientist Intern to join our Machine Learning team, and especially, the team responsible for our recommendation engines. Your work will have an impact throughout Dailymotion’s business and help make data-driven decisions on products and strategy. You will be part of a team made up of several Machine Learning Scientists/Engineers, Data Engineers, and Data Analysts that closely work together on several machine learning projects including recommender systems, semantic annotations, fraud detection, etc.
In order to better understand, organize and expose our video catalog to our millions of active users, Dailymotion Machine Learning team developed a recommender engine to promote the appropriate content to the right user, retain our audience and thus generate more engagement in the platform. In order to keep up to the market, we have some tracks to add new/improved features. One of which is the visual information of the videos’ thumbnail.

Thus, the benefits of this internship could be huge, with the industrialization of the solution when the performance is interesting, and joint work with multiple teams to provide them with a decision support tool.
