Job Description

Key Responsibilities
As a member of the AI R&D team, you’ll develop modeling, simulation, and validation tools to support our AI production team. The particular challenges of our domain require applying a wide range of classical to cutting-edge techniques – often with extensive tailoring – to build models and statistically validate their predicted performance. This involves careful analysis of complex environments and the ramifications of a change to our real-time pairing and recommendation systems. The R&D team works intimately with our production data scientists, so the role can involve assisting with particularly tricky client models and developing new strategies to address complicated metrics or routing structures. You’ll also work with our engineering teams and developers to write our real-time call-tracking, pairing and task assignment systems in addition to our modeling and monitoring infrastructure.

The ideal candidate will have
Experience with statistics, machine learning, linear programming, or mathematical optimization, both practical and theoretical
Excellent skills at distilling complex, ambiguous scenarios into tractable models
Familiarity with simulation and at least one programming language for data analysis such as R, Python, or Julia
Familiarity with SQL, relational databases, version control, and tools for reproducibility such as git, Jupyter and R Markdown, make, or authoring custom packages
Demonstrated ability to manage time independently and take projects to completion
Willingness to both teach others and learn new techniques
Ability to document and explain cutting-edge techniques to other team members
Comfort working in a collaborative environment with cross-team communication to bring projects into production

Pluses:
Familiarity with Bayesian statistics, hierarchical modeling, MCMC algorithms, latent factor models
Familiarity with reinforcement learning, dynamic programming, multi-armed bandits
Publications in machine learning, statistics, or optimization
Software engineering experience, particularly C++

Education & Qualifications
Graduate degree in Statistics, Mathematics, Econometrics, Operations Research, or other field with relevant research

Salary & Package
As well as a competitive base salary dependent on the number of years of experience, we also offer generous stock options, an annual discretionary bonus plus Corporate benefits.
