You are skilled at finding the precise mathematical kernels of real-world problems and want to bring that talent to bear on the business questions facing the world’s leading companies. You are excited to apply your existing expertise in fields such as statistics and computer science on BlackSwan’s ELEMENT state-of-the-art infrastructure. You are excited to work at a startup where you will have a chance to expand your scientific and engineering skills to new areas.
We work closely with the Product Management team and Platform engineers to anticipate company needs and quickly put state-of-the-art mathematical tools into the hands of end users. Members of the Data Science team translate real world problems into quantitative language, find or create algorithms to solve those problems, and implement them in code. Our team values a creative and empathetic approach to problem solving and strives to maintain rigorous scientific and engineering standards. We will give you the opportunity to work on the full data science pipeline, bringing solutions from basic research all the way to production.

What A Great Candidate Looks Like:

  • Work closely with Product Managers, Data Scientists, and fellow ML Engineers to frame Machine Learning problems within the business context
  • Provide mentorship to other ML engineers and Data Scientists in the team
    Be hands-on and involved with every stage of the ML product development cycle
  • Design, extend and review ML experiments and solutions
  • Evaluate, justify and communicate ML models’ performance to various stakeholders
  • Write clean and tested code that can be maintained and extended by other fellow ML engineers
  • Influence the Machine Learning development culture to be innovative
  • Establish and extend standards and best practice for ML engineering
