Senior Data Scientist

Currently, we are looking for a Data Scientist who will be a part of the general-purpose data science team. We define a Data Scientist (DS) as a scientist(!) as opposed to a data analyst with fancy modeling that is able to formulate hypotheses, arrange experiments and adjust modeling approaches to the problem at hand. Though we expect that a senior data scientist has close ties with product vision and is able to overview problems from the business perspective.

In this position, you will often communicate with a customer and consult both technical and non-technical team members regarding questions within your domain of machine learning and data-driven solutions.

Responsibilities:

  • Understand business needs and restrictions and offer appropriate technical solutions in the domain of data-driven applications, describe qualities and limitations of proposed approaches to non-technical people.
  • Work with all types of data including tabular,  visual and textual data, state data collection and labeling requirements.
  • Choose, design and implement data modeling techniques from heuristics to  classical machine learning to deep learning models.
  • Research SOTA approaches, set up experiments for hypotheses validation and improve existing modeling techniques.

Requirements:

Fundamental (must have 80% of these)

  • Knowledge of linear algebra and calculus sufficient for explaining concepts such as backpropagation and regularization.
  • Knowledge of fundamental machine learning theory such as soft optimization and statistical learning.
  • Knowledge of classical machine learning algorithms such as ensembles, clustering and dimensionality reduction.
  • Knowledge of basic deep learning architectures such as MLPs, CNNs, RNNs, and, maybe, a little bit of Attention.
  • A brief touch to theoretical computer science and its algorithms (we don’t ask inversion of binary trees).
  • Experience with basic software engineering instruments such as python, bash, git and some relational databases.
  • Understanding of Data Science Lifecycle from data collection to model training, deployment and maintenance.

Domain (having at least 3 points in total is already great)

CV

  • Building production-ready computer vision systems including camera and infrastructure requirements.
  • Handling deep learning solutions from Detection to Tracking to Segmentation or Pose Estimation.
  • Dealing with classical approaches for Tracking, Trajectory Estimation and 3D Scene Construction.

NLP

  • Knowledge of theoretical concepts in Natural Language Processing such as encodings, embedding spaces and language heuristics.
  • Commercial usage of transformer-based models for common tasks from Translation to Named Entity Recognition to Language Modeling.
  • Making large-scale language models work in production such as BERT, T5, GPT and any other flavours of these.

ML

  • Building recommender systems based on collaborative filtering and content matching, ideally based on deep learning.
  • Dealing with time-series such as market values or resource allocation with predictive models and anomaly detection.
  • Solving analytical problems with explainable pipelines based on clustering, explainers and white-box modeling.

Scaling up (a few ways to stand out)

  • Ability to read, estimate and implement solutions from scientific papers without code provided.
  • A number of somewhat cited publications in scientific journals or conferences.
  • Lecturing and mentoring experience in an either academic or industrial setting.
  • A fancy scientific or engineering degree related to computer or data science. (MS+)
  • Fluent knowledge of English or any additional language across four major skills. (ideally C1+)

You will work with smart people who love to solve hard problems, and who not only expect but also foster high performance!
