Data Scientist, Senior

The Challenge:

Are you excited at the prospect of unlocking the secrets held by a data set? Are you fascinated by the possibilities presented by the IoT, machine learning, and artificial intelligence advances? In an increasingly connected world, massive amounts of structured and unstructured data open up new opportunities. As a data scientist, you can turn these complex data sets into useful information to solve global challenges. Across private and public sectors — from fraud detection, to cancer research, to national intelligence — you know the answers are in the data.

We have an opportunity for you to use your leadership and analytical skills to create Artificial Intelligence capabilities for real world applications. You’ll work closely with your customer to understand their questions and needs, then dig into their data-rich environment to find the pieces of their information puzzle. You’ll apply technical and analytical expertise to explore and examine data from multiple disparate sources with the goal of discovering patterns and previously hidden insights, providing a competitive advantage, or addressing a pressing business problem. You’ll provide your customer with a deep understanding of their data, what it all means, and how they can use it. You'll leverage knowledge of mathematical and statistical concepts, computer science, or domains to bridge the gap between technologists and mathematicians, ensuring software solutions meet analytic requirements. Join us as we use data science for good in strategic innovation.
