Our client is a well funded disruptive startup on the west coast with operations in Seattle and San Francisco. They are expanding their fleet of vehicles that can autonomously prepare food in-transit.
The problem we need to solve is a combination of Uber's ride scheduling problem with Amazon's autonomous supply chain problem and Doordash’s last mile delivery, but to make things more tricky food needs to show up freshly prepared, so timing is critical. And that just the tip of the iceberg of where we're going. To scale we're going to need to solve lot of really hard problems that call for a world class data science team. That’s where you come in.
You should have a broad understanding of data science in general, but we're also looking for specialists in at least one of (convex) optimization, stochastic processes, time series, and machine learning. Graduate work in any of these fields is a plus. You'll need to be proficient in programming (python), and not afraid to get your hands dirty in implementation. Experience with hardware a plus, but not required.
This is a rare opportunity to get in at the early stages of a growing team, in a rapidly growing company. We're looking for one of the next leaders in the industry. If that’s you, lets talk.
WHO YOU ARE
A generalist in data science with deeper experience in either Optimization, Stochastic Processes, Deep Learning or reinforcement learning.
- Degree CS, Applied Math, Statistics, or other scientific field. Graduate degree a plus
- Experience building models on real world problems
- Software development experience in python
- Familiarity with hardware/robotics
- Understanding of supply chains and hands on experience with data science techniques
- Previous experience at a start-up
