HiveWatch is empowering organizations to protect their people through intelligent orchestration of their physical security programs.


HiveWatch is a tech-forward, inclusive organization leading the evolution of the physical security industry with innovation and collaborative problem solving. We are passionate about the problems we’re solving for our customers and equally passionate about the company we’re building. 

As a Lead Data Scientist you will be heavily involved in developing the foundational concepts and algorithms used by HiveWatch.  You will report directly to the executive suite, working closely with leadership/engineering/product to develop a data model, concept/definitions/KPIs, and relevant algorithms for maximizing signal detection and actionable intelligence at scale.


  • Work with engineering to understand the data requirements and work to develop definitions of events, metrics, KPIs, etc. relevant to business and model performance.
  • Work with product to develop appropriate algorithms that are effective, transparent, scalable, and accessible for additive/collaborative model improvement.

As a Lead Data Scientist you will be expected to:

  • Manage multiple technical projects including:
    • Metric/event definitions
    • Data governance for model development
    • Various predictive algorithms in development by a small team working closely with product and engineering (e.g. 3-7 folks).
    • Manage performance of 2-4 data scientists.  
  • Understand and work with the data feeds to create analytical data-models for effective analysis and feature/model development (e.g. event detection of video feeds, sensor feeds etc.)
  • Develop simple and advanced algorithms for effective signal detection and actionable intelligence. The most relevant skill sets for our type of algorithmic needs are:
    • Advanced statistics and experimental design
    • Bayesian statistics
    • Signal detection theory  (e.g. criterion, D-prime, etc.) 
    • 1-d signal processing (e.g. audio, time-series)
    • Control theory (e.g. critic-actor systems, iterative bayesian, kalman filter, SLAM systems, reinforcement learning


  • You have a Master’s degree or PhD in a highly quantitative field (Computer Science, Machine Learning, Control theory, Statistics, Mathematics, Physics, Economics, etc.)
  • 4+ years of experience working on AI/ML programs, projects, or related work
  • Hands-on experience with advanced statistics, control theory, signal detection theory, classification, sentiment analysis, survival analysis, time series, ensembles, design of experiments, deep learning and NLP using open-source tools.
  • Experience in deploying ML algorithms and advanced modeling solutions on Data Science and ML infrastructures
  • Expert knowledge in R/Python/SQL and at least one cloud-based AI/ML platform.  Familiarity with UNIX/LINUX environments and BASH/shell scripting is desired
  • Experience working with various cloud systems including AWS sagemaker, etc. 
  • Strong organizational skills with an ability to manage multiple projects at any given time
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills.  In particular, be able to convert highly technical concepts and results into easily understood business value proposition


  • 2+ years of experience working in the fraud or security industry
  • Publications or presentations in recognized ML journals or conferences


  • Join an early-stage company with a lot of momentum, led by a top tier leadership team and backed by top tier investors
  • Leverage cutting edge solutions in an emerging field with lots of growth potential
  • Competitive Compensation Packages
  • Hybrid Office Model
  • Health, Dental, Vision, and Life Insurance
  • 401K

Voluntary Self-Identification

For government reporting purposes, we ask candidates to respond to the below self-identification survey. Completion of the form is entirely voluntary. Whatever your decision, it will not be considered in the hiring process or thereafter. Any information that you do provide will be recorded and maintained in a confidential file.

Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

An "Armed forces service medal veteran" means a veteran who, while serving on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a United States military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities.

Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
