Description :
The Data Scientist will leverage data to accelerate high-throughput battery R&D, shaping how Cuberg uses sequential learning workflows to suggest statistically optimal experiments. You will work cross-functionally with other scientists, engineers, and business team members to refine features from our cycling datasets and improve the predictive power of our machine learning models.

Ideal candidates are comfortable with ambiguity, capable of independently leading projects, and capable of communicating effectively across multiple teams of varying disciplines. They are also detail-oriented, take pride in the quality of their work, and perform well in a fast-paced, collaborative, and dynamic startup environment. Critically, the right candidate is excited by the prospect of joining the team at Cuberg with the chance to shape the culture, technology, and quality of our company.
