Senior Data Scientist- US

Senior Data Scientist- US

The Within3 data science department has an opportunity for a senior level data science/AI software engineer. We have an expansive natural language processing project where we are summarizing the most common ideas expressed in datasets of captured text.

This position will own unsupervised text clustering projects, including the underlying k-means clustering methodology, automating the identification of the optimal number of clusters inherent to a dataset, and performing such text clustering on text data

We build our data science software primarily in Python, but may move to C or C++ as needed. We do not use R. All code must be written robustly and efficiently with good object oriented programming skills, not quick-and-dirty throwaway scripts, and pass code reviews. Writing efficient queries to databases, mostly Cypher/Neo4j and possibly SQL, will also be necessary.

Strong communication skills, both verbal and written, are stressed on our team so that we can efficiently build our products and learn from each other in a professionally supportive business environment.
