Advanced Data Scientist

The Challenge:

Are you an analytics professional who wants to be at the cutting-edge of data science and artificial intelligence? If you care about moving a mission forward as much as advancing the field of data science, this is the opportunity for you. You will research and develop new computer vision technologies for rapidly labeling data for imagery analysis, as well as develop novel neural network architectures for interactive synthetic data generation. You will analyze properties and performance of neural network architecture and resulting synthetic data. We will rely on your expertise to evaluate neural network architectures and synthetic data through experimentation. You will lead development of proof-of-concept and prototype implementations of neural network architectures on relevant domain data. We’re looking for someone like you to lead complex data exploration and analytics projects where you will leverage your expertise with TensorFlow, PyTorch, and training neural network architectures. We need someone like you with strong programming skills, strong math skills, expertise in scripting for data processing and analysis.

As an advanced data scientist/researcher on our team, you’ll learn, develop, and apply data analytic capabilities and machine learning architectures for AI research on decision support tools for the future tactical network of sensors, vehicles, and dismounted users. You’ll grow your skills and shape the future of analytics through a variety of means like peer-reviewed papers, major conference presentations, code submissions.
