How will this role have an impact?

Reporting directly to the Director of Data Science, the Data Scientist position is responsible for mining, analyzing, and designing methodologies for data exploration, methodically running statistical experiments, and regularly evaluating alternate models via theoretical approaches. This role will fulfill our internal and external customer needs from an analytics perspective and develop reporting to satisfy those needs. The Data Scientist’s role is to transform data into identifying critical insights to the core and new products that can be used to make rational decisions by:

  • Collecting and preparing data for analysis – Cleansing / Data Wrangling
  • Creating models to evaluate the data – Statistical, Visual, Machine Learning
  • Evaluating models and refining as needed – How well does it work, and can we improve it?
  • Delivering solutions based on the model and communicating their value and use

Education/Licensing Requirements:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Statistics, Applied Math, or a related field

Experience Requirements:

  • 5+ years of experience in mining, processing, and analyzing data; health data would be beneficial.
  • Experience working with various business stakeholders to develop project plans for business value analytics
  • 5+ years of professional experience working in a data science capacity with some combination of Python/scripting language and relational database production experience
  • 5+ years of experience with exploratory data analysis, statistical modeling and hypothesis testing, model evaluation, and scientific method selection.
  • Experience with statistical modeling/data mining algorithms such as Multivariate Regression, Logistic Regression, clustering algorithms, Support Vector Machines, Decision Trees, etc.
  • 5+ years of experience developing supervised and unsupervised machine learning models (including clustering, regression, logistic, classification, and decision tree) from scratch.
