Data Scientist
  • Reframe objectives as machine learning tasks that can deliver actionable insights, accurate predictions, and effective optimization. 
  • Implement and execute machine learning with reliability and reproducibility. 
  • Explain how models and systems work to both non-technical and technical stakeholders. 
  • Collaborate with engineering teams to build data-based products and help integrate into the products and operational processes. 
  • Process, cleanse, and verify the integrity of data used for analysis. 
  • Enhance data collection procedures to include information that is relevant for creating better ML models. 
  • Create automated anomaly detection systems and constant tracking of its performance

Responsibilities
  • Development of prototype solutions, mathematical models, algorithms, machine learning techniques, and robust analytics to support analytic insights and visualization of complex data sets
  • Provide optimization recommendations that drive KPIs established by product, marketing, operations, PR teams, and others
  • Drive innovation by exploring new experimentation methods and statistical techniques that could sharpen or speed up our product decision-making processes
