The opportunity to work with a world class team of talented data scientists with strong background in machine learning, and who are extremely passionate about solving real-
world applied problems in the various business domains.
A real opportunity to expand your skill-sets and a chance to learn and use the latest advances and approaches in machine learning and data mining on real world datasets
Working at a fast-paced work-environment where you are expected to be self-motivated and are measured on your performance.
Ability to understand a problem statement and implement analytical solutions & techniques independently with independently / proactively / thought-leadership.
Work and collaborate with other teams to deliver and create value for clients
Fast learner : ability to learn and pick up a new language / tool / platform quickly
Conceptualize, design and deliver high-quality solutions and insightful analysis
Conduct research and prototyping innovations; data and requirements gathering; solution scoping and architecture; consulting clients and client facing teams on advanced statistical and machine learning problems.
Ability to deliver AIML based solutions around a host of domains and problems, with some of them being : Customer Segmentation & Targeting, Propensity Modeling, Churn Modeling, Lifetime Value Estimation, Forecasting, Recommender Systems, Modeling Response to Incentives, Marketing Mix Optimization, Price Optimization
Experience Required :
Expert level proficiency in at least one of R and Python
Ability to discover efficient solutions to complex problems. Strong skills in data-structures and algorithms.
Experience of working on a project end-to-end : problem scoping, data gathering, EDA, modelling, insights and visualizations
Problem-solving : Ability to break the problem into small problems and think of relevant techniques which can be explored & used to cater to those
Intermediate to advanced knowledge of machine learning, probability theory, statistics and algorithms. You will be required to discuss and use various algorithms and approaches on a daily basis.
We use regression, Bayesian methods, tree-based learners, SVM, RF, XGBOOST, time series modeling, dimensionality reduction, SEM, GLM, GLMM, clustering etc on a regular basis.
If you know few of them you are good to go.
