Senior AI & Machine Learning Scientist

We are looking for senior data scientists to work on machine learning, data mining, and statistical modeling for predictive and prescriptive investment analytics. Successful candidates with strong R&D background will be expected to investigate state of the art techniques in advanced machine learning and statistical modeling, and design, develop, and deploy state-of-art, scalable systems for innovative analytics applications in a set of financial verticals (e.g. trading, investment, risk management, etc.). Applicants will be expected to work with a diverse set of data sources, such as time series data, spatial, graph data, semi-structured and unstructured data, and build statistical/machine-learning models in support of on-demand, real-time analytic services. The applicant should also have strong skills in explaining and interpreting the analytic models and outcomes in both research and application contexts.

Responsibilities

  • Research, design, and prototype robust and scalable and hybrid models based on machine learning, data mining, and statistical modeling to answer key financial problems
  • Build tools and support structures needed to analyze data, perform elements of data cleaning, feature selection, and feature engineering and organize experiments in conjunction with best practices
  • Work with development teams & business groups to ensure models can be implemented as part of a delivered solution replicable across many clients
  • Present findings to stakeholders to drive improvements and solutions from concept through to delivery
  • Keep abreast of the latest developments in the field by continuous learning and proactively champion promising new methods relevant to the problems at hand
  • Collaborate closely with university partners and other scientists and engineers in a multidisciplinary work environment
