Job Description:

The candidate will:

· Develop innovative data science tools and methods that result in products or strategic insights with significant return on investment while meeting project requirements and timelines.

· Employ advanced statistical techniques while effectively and accurately interpreting the results of quantitative models to achieve clear outcomes.

· Proficiently uses statistical programming languages and tools appropriate for data science domains.

· Prepare data from diverse data stores for analytics including data mining and feature engineering within large datasets with complex classes and anomalies.

· Proficiently uses scripting languages to work with API's, move data, and construct custom enterprise grade software utilities, applications, or analytic products to automate, improve, and operationalize quantitative models.

· Quickly learns and appropriately applies cutting edge advanced analytic methodologies and tools in creative and novel ways.
