About the role: 

In this role, you will be deep within our data science organization. You will model the processes and related variances to measure the performance of an autonomous vehicle both on-road and in simulation.  Additionally, you will build predictive models to foresee on road behavior and models for root cause attribution.

Day-to-day responsibilities include:
  • Statistical estimation and uncertainty modeling 
  • Bias estimation and subsampling strategies
  • Account for intrinsic non-stationarity in underlying process performance
  • Significance testing of system requirements
  • Rendering precise formulations of ambiguous problem statements

You should apply for this role if you have the following qualifications:

  • 3+ years of practical experience in statistical estimation
  • Facility with standard statistical methods like linear and logistic regression, SVM, confidence intervals, significance testing

  • Practical experience with imputation methods, censored regression
  • Practical command over Python and/or R or similar analytical tools
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Extensive practical experience in statistical data analysis
  • PhD in a quantitative discipline (statistics, operations, biostatistics, econometrics, etc.)

Bonus Points!

  • Prior experience with rare event statistics
  • Experience with active learning methods (Multiarm-Bandit, Active Thompson Sampling etc)
  • Prior experience with causal inference using instrumental variables and other forms of multifactor attribution methods
  • Observational trial design and analysis experience, including balancing and matching techniques
  • Familiarity with sequential testing methods
  • Prior experience in a related robotics or autonomy discipline
  • Practical experience with PyMC3
