As an experienced data scientist, you will help to make location content best-in-class by advocating for and implementing changes to technology, process, tools, and systems. We look for people who are curious, innovative, out of box thinker, loves taking risk and work to make system better every day. In this role, the person is expected to take on critical tasks such as productionizing, deploying, testing and monitoring of machine learning models including exposing them as service.
What you’ll do
Draw insights by manipulating Satellite imagery, vertical imagery, street level imagery, GPS traces, etc. individually and by fusing several combinations of these sources
Use these sources individually or their combinations to predict various map features and attributes by training statistical models/ ML models
Applying various data science methods coupled with Computer vision like CNN, explore and experiment on new models through research papers or via various frameworks
Develop processes and tools to monitor and analyze model performance and data accuracy
Automate feedback loops for algorithms in production through standardization of process and authoring best practices
Collaborate with teams to bring synergy
Mentor/Coach/Guide team members aspire to become a Data Scientist
What you’ll need
Bachelor’s/Masters/PHD in Computer science, Mathematics, Statistics or equivalent field and must have min. 8+ years of overall experience
Minimum 8-12 Years of experience working as a Data Scientist in deploying ML at scale in production
Experience in slicing and dicing of large data sets to draw insights
Experience in various machine learning techniques (e.g. Convolutional Neural Network, Object detection, NLP, Decision tree, Regression, etc..) and frameworks (e.g. TensorFlow, PyTorch, Scikit-learn, etc.)
Experience in deploying trained models for high scalability on public cloud platforms (AWS/Azure) using Dockers/Kubernetes
Experience working with data technologies that allow effective storage and analysis of large amounts of data (e.g. Hadoop, Hive, Spark, Presto, S3, etc).
Strong level of proficiency in Python, Unix/Linux and SQL
Active participation in competitions on a platform such as Kaggle
