The Data Scientist role involves working on all the stages of our data pipeline, including acquiring and understanding the data, modeling various algorithms, performing evaluation of the performance of algorithms, and also implementing these solutions in a commercial product either as standalone code or in existing ML frameworks like Spark/MLlib.

Key Responsibilities:

  • You will become an authority on the product data, including how it is collected and processed

  • You will explore the data and answer questions about the data to improve our understanding of the potential of the data

  • You will closely interact with both our product and engineering teams to derive requirements for what solutions should be implemented in the product

  • You will rapidly prototype, and evaluate statistical and machine learning solutions

  • You will collaborate with engineering to implement these solutions into production

  • You will communicate your results and explain your solutions to technical and non-technical partners

Required Experience/Skills & Education:

  • You have experience with Python scikit-learn, Spark/MLlib, or an equivalent framework required

  • You are able to code in Python, Java or Scala - required

  • You have the ability to evaluate and tune statistical and ML solutions required

  • You have worked with large datasets, preferably using tools like SQL, Spark, Hadoop, MapReduce, or Hive preferred

What We Offer You:

  • A constant stream of new things for you to learn. We're always growing into new areas, bringing in open source projects and contributing back, and exploring new technologies.

  • A set of extraordinarily talented and dedicated peers, all the way from engineering and QA to product management and customer support.

  • A stable, collaborative and supportive work environment.

  • We don't expect people to work 12-hour days. We want you to have a successful time outside of work too. Want to work from home sometimes? No problem. We trust our colleagues to be responsible with their time and dedication and believe that balance helps nurture an exceptional environment.

  • 3+ years of professional experience required

We value diversity at our company. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, or any other applicable legally protected characteristics in the location in which the candidate is applying.

VIEW JOBS 4/5/2019 12:00:00 AM 2019-07-04T00:00 Job Title: Associate Scientist II - WRF, Wind Power Forecasting, and Data Processing Location: Boulder, Colorado Type: Full-time, Exempt Position Term: 2-year term, with the possibility of extension Relocation: No relocation package is offered for this position. Work Authorization: UCAR/NCAR will sponsor a work visa to fill this position. Where You Will Work: Located in Boulder, Colorado, the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) is one of the world's premier scientific institutions, with an internationally recognized staff and research program dedicated to advancing knowledge, providing community-based resources, and building human capacity in the atmospheric and related sciences. NCAR is sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and managed by the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR). What You Will Do: This is a new full-time position. The new hire will work in teams of RAL scientists and engineers to 1) modify, configure, and execute meteorological models to study mesoscale and microscale processes; 2) study and apply data assimilation technologies for mesoscale and microscale weather analysis and forecast; 3) post-process WRF-based model output and validate forecasts from numerical models; 4) improve forecast systems for nowcasting and short-term real-time weather prediction; and 5) develop tools for weather-critical applications. Responsibilities: * Analyzes multiple meteorological data products (e.g. numerical weather prediction models, rain gauge analysis, sounding data, wind farm data) for evaluating their quality and usefulness for prediction. * Performs basic meteorological model experiments using the WRF model to assess the impact of different model configurations on mesoscale weather process simulations, especially in complex terrain. * Post-processes model output to satisfy a specific set of requirements for the sponsor and end users under general supervision, potentially developing statistics and machine-learning tools to enhance model output value and improve prediction accuracy. * Assists in the ongoing algorithm development that couples WRF-based ensemble forecasts with application models. * Processes various meteorological observation data for model system data assimilation, improving initial conditions and predictions. * Assists in displaying model output and observations from multiple sensor platforms, and identifies inconsistencies in model output. * Provides scientific support for real-time WRF model forecast systems, monitoring and trouble-shooting of real-time forecast systems, and validating model upgrades. * Presents research results through project reports, oral presentations, posters, and journal articles. What You Need: Education and Years of Experience: * Bachelor's degree in atmospheric science, meteorology, or a closely related field At least 2-3 years of experience as an Associate Scientist I or equivalent position, in meteorological and/or climate research and applications after college * Desired but not Required: A master's degree Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities: * Demonstrated skill working in the atmospheric science field, especially mesoscale and microscale weather processes * Proficiency in working with the WRF model * Demonstrated skill in working with surface meteorological station data, sounding data, radar, satellite, and other observational data * Demonstrated skill in processing large datasets in a variety of different data formats (ASCII, GRIB, or NetCDF). * Demonstrated skill in analyzing numerical weather prediction model output and verification statistics * Programming skills in data analysis software packages (e.g., R, NCL, Python) * Ability to work effectively in a collaborative environment with scientists, engineers, and operational users * Strong oral and written communication skills * Demonstrated ability to complete tasks on schedule with moderate supervision What's in it for You: * Compensation * PTO * Paid Holidays * Tuition Reimbursement * Benefits (Medical, Dental, Vision) * Retirement Plan * And more!
