The role

This advertisement is for the position of lead data scientist, the successful candidate will take responsibility for the design of machine learning models to be delivered directly into impactful industry projects across a wide array of use cases and verticals. The candidate can expect to address projects concerning large quantities of image, video, textual, time series and sensor data. The role demands a solution orientated candidate capable of informing the development of functional software grounded in robust theory working together with an experienced software engineering team. This requires a versatile end-to-end data scientist, capable of seeing a project from customer requirements and business objectives through model design to production ready models. In addition to delivering models into a steady stream of projects the candidate will help guide the integration of more AI and Data Science capability into our IoT platform, as we seek to enable future customers to work with their data in more powerful ways and develop their own models entirely within the platform.

Our current projects

At present we have a number of projects which the successful candidate can expect to be working on:

– Designing models to predict the likelihood of a breach in the dam wall of tailing ponds in ore mines using a combination of satellite imagery and local sensor data from the dam. Tailing dam breaches in the past have proved to be immense humanitarian and environmental catastrophes. (Computer Vision & Sensor Analytics)

– Designing models to detect and predict the onset of specific medical conditions from large amounts of patient sensor data in a nursing home environment. This project is carried out in partnership with academic and medical partners. The aim is to enable a higher quality of life and greater autonomy for elderly individuals. (Computer Vision, NLP & Sensor Analytics).

– Designing models to predict downtime on production line equipment for one of the worlds largest car manufacturing companies, using high velocity textual log files and an immense historical dataset with previous issues annotated. (NLP)

Required skills & qualifications
