The work includes the creation of both prototype “proof of concept” demos to prove out specific technologies and algorithms. In addition the Data Scientist will provide general analytical support to the professional services, product management and engineering organizations.

LOCATION:

  • North America or Canada location.
  • Able to work remote.
  • Able to present evidence of your U.S. citizenship or legal authorization to work in the U.S. and/or Canada.

ESSENTIAL DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES

Essential Duties and Responsibilities include the following; however other duties may be assigned.

The Data Scientist will apply and develop state-of-the-art algorithms for large scale stochastic optimization, predicting failure times and other machine learning techno;ogies like deep learning, signal processing and build and validate algorithms that satisfy specific customer requirements.

The position is based in the San Mateo California office, however exceptional remote applicants may also be considered. Some travel to customer sites is required to capture requirements, give demos, support projects and customer account teams. Input to technical sections of RFP/RFI responses is also required.

The Data Scientist will also own the roadmap for analytic functionality in specific areas.
