The Experience

AI & Machine Learning

Machine learning at our firm is not a gimmick, it is how we make money. Therefore, unlike most consumer facing industries, machine learning is treated as a profit center not as a cost center. We are also in one of the few industries where we have more than enough quality data to do machine learning. As a Data Scientist, you will develop real world experience in AI and machine learning, work with real world data, and build production worthy algorithms.

Big Data

As a Data Scientist, you will work with and gain familiarity with the latest Big Data technology stacks, including grid engine, compute clusters, hadoop, network parallel filesystems, distributed data bases and systems. We are not afraid with experimenting with the latest and newest technologies in order to get better performances.

Research Freedom

You will have tremendous leeway and freedom to define your own research direction. We are looking for scientists with tremendous creativity, out of the box thinking, and enthusiasm to test unorthodox new ideas. You will have an unparalleled opportunity to test the latest state-of-the-art machine learning and deep learning techniques.
