Job # 22924 - Data Scientist
Location: Redwood City, CACompany:Our client is an emerging high-tech company based in Silicon Valley, focused on
an innovative platform that provides insights and answers to the complexity
of ever-growing information. They are an accomplished team of alums from top
universities and industry leaders, and their managers have track records of
billion-dollar exits.
The company has successfully launched a portfolio of products and services,
including an intelligent framework based on a stack of Artificial Intelligence
algorithms that digest a multitude of data sources, both structured and
unstructured, and extract financial, economic, political and social indicators,
alongside the semantic explanatory rationale describing any given event.
Such a portfolio of services gives influential decision makers, researchers and
analysts a critical edge by connecting them to a dynamic network of
information. They have a range of customers in the education sector
including some of the top research institutions across the US, UK and Europe.Job Opportunity:As the company and product scale to serve many more users, they're ready to revamp their architecture to efficiently capture and analyze billions of more data points. They re rapidly outgrowing their single-node PostgreSQL instance, and exploring solutions involving replication, sharding, and NoSQL systems to maintain and improve performance even as their datasets grow exponentially.Responsibilities:Creating, designing and implementing the next generation of knowledge
discovery tools and big data analytics.
Successful candidates will be expected to develop cutting-edge machine
learning algorithms that can be used to extract decision-making signals from
heterogeneous streams of unstructured data in real-time.
Applicants must have a strong background in machine learning,
computational semantics, and statistical modeling for predictive analytics. In
addition, candidates are expected to have hands-on experience in deploying
data analysis and machine learning algorithms on distributed systems.

- Collecting and preprocessing data, prototyping concepts, designing cutting-edge machine learning algorithms
- Testing those Machine learning algorithms on Production dataRequirements:- PhD or a Master s degree in Computer Science or related fields
(preferably with major in Machine Learning / AI)
- 3+ years relevant experience
- Strong knowledge of state-of-the-art algorithms in machine learning
(e.g. Bayesian learning, latent/topic models, approximate inference,
deep networks, stochastic processes), graph analysis (e.g. community
detection, random walk) and statistical modeling (e.g. hypothesis
testing, dimensionality reduction)
- Proficiency in standard data analytics toolkits in Python, Scala or R
- Hands-on experience of Hadoop 2.0 (Spark, MapReduce) and AWS
ecosystems is highly beneficial
