Data Scientist

Data Scientist

Data science is core to the Rubikloud offering which is why being a data scientist at Rubikloud is different than being a data scientist anywhere else. As a data scientist, you are a part of the core product and development team. You will be developing mathematical models to produce actionable recommendations to help our clients grow their business. You will also be developing efficient online models for detecting losses and opportunities in real time. The ideal candidate is not only a sharp and quantitative thinker that can translate business needs into mathematical models, but a do-er that can hold their own as a programmer -- whether it is manipulating data, enhancing existing models, or implementing a new model altogether.

Please provide a code sample with your application. (Github username will suffice)

Responsibilities:

  • Build mathematical models and automate statistical and machine learning tools for producing actionable recommendations using data
  • Analyze, interpret, visualize, and communicate results of statistical models
  • Summarize and present findings to internal stakeholders and customers
  • Drive the collection of new data and refinement of existing data sources
  • Develop real-time models for detecting losses and opportunities
  • Test, evaluate, and productize mathematical models

Requirements:

  • Degree in Computer Science, Mathematics, Statistics, or related field
  • 3+ year technical experience, ideally as a data scientist or data engineer
  • Strong background in statistical or mathematical modelling
  • Strong analytical and quantitative problem solving ability
  • Expert knowledge of at least one analysis tool, ideally R
  • Fluency with at least one scripting language, ideally Python
  • Understanding and experience using version control, ideally git
  • Comfortable manipulating and analyzing complex, high-volume, and high-dimensionality data
  • Ability to communicate complex quantitative analyses in a clear, precise, and actionable manner
  • Ability to multitask
  • Experience working with distributed computing tools a plus
