We are cross-functional talent working together on the cutting edge to provide mission critical solutions. Keep reading to learn the perks of joining a well-funded MLOps startup with major contracts in highly regulated spaces.

The Role

As a Data Scientist at Striveworks, you’ll be challenged—and trusted—on day one to be a core contributor to the projects and direction of the company.

You’re right for this challenge if you value and possess technical expertise and you push the boundaries of your own capabilities. In this mission-critical work, you will design and lead development cycles for a vertically-integrated data analytics effort from sensor to platform to end user. Our mission is focused on task automation, data analytics, computer vision, and natural language processing.

 

The Right Fit

Purehearted geniuses. How do you know you’re a purehearted genius? Easy: you persevere relentlessly to achieve your goals. You know the team has the same goals as you, and you make and accept decisions for the team with humility. Your say/do ratio is 1. Your “acceptable” is what others call “excellence.” You know that there is no smartest person in the room. Fit all those? We’re already on the same page. Here’s what else we’re looking for:

  • Mastery of Python
  • Ability to design, implement, and document scalable code
  • Deep understanding and intuition around machine learning techniques, statistical, and predictive modelling
  • Bachelor of Science degree in related discipline
  • Driven, self-directed personality
  • Strong sense of mission and commitment to making a difference
  • Willingness and ability to travel OCONUS (up to 20%) for customer engagements
  • Active TS/SCI US Security Clearance

The Wish List

We’re very interested in Data Scientists that possess the above qualifications, and heavily appreciate and consider the addition of:

  • Active TS/SCI Security Clearance.
  • Knowledge of data pipelines.
  • Experience with direct application to computer vision, particularly object recognition and interaction tagging.
  • Advanced (MS or PhD) degrees in mathematics, physics, statistics, machine learning, or related quantitative disciplines. 

The Tech Stack

We believe in constant curiosity and peer-driven learning. As a Data Scientist at Striveworks, you’ll have access to our growing learning library, learn about—or present—the latest research at our weekly journal club, participate in open-source projects, and take part in pair programming. Find some of our public projects at github.com/Striveworks. You’ll be able to grow your skills in:

  • GoLang
  • Python 
  • Typescript
  • Kubernetes
  • Flyte

The Perks

So you made it this far and are up for the task... good, we've been waiting for you! Joining Striveworks in 2021 means you'll be a key player in our growth strategy. As a well-funded and operating startup, we've got competitive salaries, good benefits, the best snacks, a learning library, and weekly free lunches. But most importantly, we believe that everyone at the company should be a stakeholder and participate in the company’s success. We have a generous equity plan that puts that belief into practice. Our founders have already taken a company to IPO once, so this is not your typical startup.
