  • Must Have
    • 1-4 years of experience applying machine learning and statistical knowledge to drive business value, specifically with Python and SQL

    • Fluency with data visualization to communicate complex topics in approachable ways
  • Nice to Have 
    • Experience with data engineering frameworks: MLFlow, Apache Spark, Hive, Kubernetes
    • Experience with machine learning frameworks: scikit-learn, Light GBM, XGBoost, lifelines, pytorch, Tensorflow/Keras
    • Experience building data and machine learning model quality monitoring systems
    • Software development lifecycle experience in GitHub (ie environment management, testing, deployment)
    • Experience at a similar scale of data processing (Multi-TB/billions of rows)
    • Work with real-time event stream data
    • Contextual work in the energy industry

Our Work Model:
