Outstanding Career Opportunity: Senior-level Data Scientist

It takes a pretty remarkable mind to turn something so complex into such a no brainer.

Making the seemingly impossible possible is what we do best. And it’s what sets us apart in the marketplace. Founded in 2013, we are an enterprising new startup that’s shaking up the custom manufacturing industry by doing in seconds what typically takes days or even weeks. Our proprietary instant quoting technology and nationwide manufacturing network allow us to create an on-demand manufacturing service that holds an enviable niche sitting atop the $60 billion custom parts industry. Our customers are companies like Tesla, SpaceX, GE, BMW, and NASA. Our service truly is the cutting edge of technology. In this senior-level role, you’ll lead a team of five data scientists developing and evolving the proprietary software that drives our powerful pricing engine that has played a key role in our rapid growth. In this position, you’ll play a pivotal role in applying machine learning, advanced mathematics and computer science techniques to the manufacturing process — providing customers instant online access to our advanced prototyping and manufacturing capabilities. You’ll interact regularly with the CEO and other members of our senior leadership team.

Mundane is a word you’ll hear only in describing what this job is not. Here, you’ll be intellectually challenged to solve some of the industry’s most perplexing challenges. How can software instantly and accurately price a part described by an uploaded CAD model? To what shops in our nationwide manufacturing network should a purchased part be directed so speed, quality, and economics are maximized? Your role will be that of an innovator, mathematician, computer scientist, player/coach, and leader, working with large data sets, complex software, and a team of talented data science practitioners. So your people skills will be every bit as important as mastery of your craft. It’s pretty heady stuff. Which is why we are seeking a data scientist who has an equally impressive head on his or her shoulders. We are solving big math problems, so an MS or PhD in applied math, computer science, or natural science — physics or engineering — is preferred.

Landing this position will require demonstrable mastery of linear algebra, statistics, error analysis, computer science, with several years of practical experience with machine learning. Fluency in Python, Panda, NumPy and SciPy is also a must. And experience with cutting edge techniques such as symbolic regression or deep learning gives you a definite edge. Your code will be flawless and you’ll have ample experience with code optimization and distributed, high performance computing. Your knowledge of machine learning, optimization and fitting techniques should be unmatched, and you’ll be familiar with debugging and automated unit regression testing. We offer competitive pay, a generous bonus, equity and a comprehensive benefits package; easy access to Metro, and an enviable corporate culture that thrives on innovation, science, collaboration, and hard work. So, if you find the idea of sharpening your career on the cutting edge of technology appealing, cut right to the chase and let us hear from you.
