  • Manipulate and curate data sets for analysis and model training.

What We’re Looking For:

  • Minimum 3 years of data science experience, with machine learning focus.
  • Hands on experience with machine learning tools, techniques, and frameworks (e.g. sklearn, Tensorflow, Keras, etc).
  • Strong foundational skills: Python, Pandas, SQL.
  • Advanced degree in statistics, applied mathematics, computer science or equivalent quantitative studies.
  • Ability and desire to mentor junior team members.
  • Drive to educate stakeholders in data science concepts and techniques.
