We all love getting up in the morning and coming to

work. As a matter of fact we even miss it, sometimes. We want you to as well.

You have experience and

success as a general data scientist and machine-learning practitioner. This

means that you must have knowledge not only of machine learning for clustering

and classification but must also demonstrate requisite programming skills and

aptitude for creative feature engineering, complex data management, the logic

of data structures, and the “art” behind applied statistics.

THINGS YOU WILL BE DOING:
You will lead, develop and implement the

data engineering pipeline and infrastructure for the automation of the

electrical phase identification, a patent pending solution developed at

Itron

Idea Labs

. Following are a few tasks (but not all) that you'll be engaged in:

Working with business leads to transform a data science service

to an automated product.

Experimenting, improving &

perfecting current algorithms for Phase ID and Transformer Connectivity

(read up on some of these terms).

Employ sophisticated data science, machine learning, and

statistical methods to prepare data for use in predictive and prescriptive

modeling

Designing and Implementing an automated

data engineering pipeline

Automating and implementing all

existing stages of the product including Ingesting, reformatting,

computing and outputting data

Identifying and developing the infrastructure to scale the

product to handle millions of data inputs.

SKILLS REQUIRED:
Basic Tools:
R or Python, and a database querying

language like SQL.

Mathematics & Statistics:

methods. This can mean things like k-nearest neighbors, random forests,

ensemble methods. More important is to understand the broad strokes and really

understand when it is appropriate to use different techniques.

Data Munging:
Know how to deal with imperfections

in data. Some examples of data imperfections include missing values,

inconsistent string formatting (e.g., ‘New York’ versus ‘new york’ versus

‘ny’), and date formatting (‘2014-01-01’ vs. ‘01/01/2014’, unix time vs.

timestamps, etc.).

Data Visualization

& Communication:
Helpful to be familiar with data

visualization tools like ggplot and d3.js.

Must think like A Data Scientist:
Data-driven problem solver.

Qualifications

QUALIFICATIONS:
REQUIRED SKILLS:
3-5 years of experience in data determining mathematical

approaches to solve problems, sampling plan and

gathering/analyzing/portraying data

At least 3 years of experience designing/building/managing solutions

utilizing , for example, ILOG

CPlex, Python, SQL, Arena, SAS, SPSS, R or other related vendors

At least 3 years of experience of statistical analysis and

deploying the results of the analysis

Programming experience in Matlab,

Python, R, SQL.

Willingness to be coached and mentored.

PREFERRED SKILLS:
4+ years of industry experience implementing and architecting data and cloud infrastructure

Experience with best practices programming modular and scalable code using modern development tools and agile development

The ability to communicate technical concepts effectively

EDUCATION:
Master’s/Ph.D
