Senior Data Scientist

Our client is a B2B IoT start-up in Sunnyvale using cutting edge technology to work on their flagship product for cargo shipping software. The role is for a Senior Data Scientist and will involve data engineering such as data pipelines and building dashboards etc. There will be light coding but heavy on the machine learning. There’s already a Junior Data Scientist using python and R, so knowing either is a plus as well as knowing spark or scala and being able to use predictive modeling. You will also perform some product manager duties since you will be making business decisions based on the data coming back from these ships to monitor things like equipment performance, maintenance, fuel projections and you’ll have input on the product as a whole.

It’s a small office with about 15 people, but they offer a lot of equity and fully paid health insurance. They have $10 million in series A funding and they are working on closing series B. Their product is currently being used by 4 customers with 396 in line so there is a lot of scalability.
