  • Help validate, maintain, optimize, and troubleshoot the performance of machine learning models being used in development and production applications

  • Ensure data privacy is respected

  • Use visualization techniques to communicate findings and explain models
You're the missing piece of the puzzle

  • Education in computer science, engineering, mathematics, or a related field

  • Expertise developing machine learning models in Python and using open source ML libraries such as Scikit-learn, PySpark, Tensorflow, SpaCy, and PyTorch

  • Ability to communicate technical and complex concepts in a way that is understood by non-technical audiences

  • Relevant work or research experience delivering substantial data science projects including publications, contributing to packages, deploying applications, building tools and frameworks

  • Interpersonal and communication skills to enable collaboration with a range of team members with diverse skill sets and backgrounds

  • The ability to quickly familiarize yourself with new languages, tools, frameworks, and to stay informed on developments in ML techniques and technologies

  • Dedication to ensuring your work is well documented and version controlled

  • Experience using Cloud infrastructure like Google Cloud Platform, Amazon Web Services or Microsoft Azure

Must to have skills:

1. Candidate needs one of the following:

  • ~5 Years of industry experience as a Data Scientist or similar work

  • A Masters Degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or Mathematics or a related field with 1-2 years experience as a Data Scientist or similar work

  • A PHD in the above academics with course work in Machine Learning and applied knowledge during schooling

2. Experience in Machine Learning libraries such as Python, Scikit-learn, PySpark, Tensorflow, and PyTorch

3. Proven demonstrated experience applying Machine Learning practices to Real World scenarios (ie building applications)

Nice to have skills:

1. Great Communication Skills

2. Boot camp experience (Machine Learning or Data Science)

3.A development background that they’ve transitioned to a Data Scientist role (eg Python development)

Project details: Working on the Data/Analytics team (Machine Learning)

Additional comments: Looking for a candidate with either the industry experience or the educational experience listed above. Not looking for someone who has 10 years of legacy DBA experience who recently transitioned over to a Data Scientist role.

Machine Learning and development/coding experience is very important for this role, will look at a former Python Developer who has bootcamp experience and transitioned over to a Data Scientist role
