Description :
At CCRi, our clients look to us to solve their hardest problems, and we have a long history of exceeding their expectations. With clients in both the private sector and the US government, we provide a variety of advanced analytical techniques, and we render our solutions in software that our clients can apply immediately.

We are currently not hiring for this position but will update this position’s details when we are.

We are always interested in experienced data scientists, especially those with some management experience.

The Role

You’ll help create machine learning analytics that will be integrated into streaming data processing pipelines and appealing user interfaces that provide real-time situational awareness and expose advanced analytics to end users. As a senior data scientist, you will be expected to balance technical responsibilities (design and development) with team responsibilities (technical planning, roadmaps, ticket creation and delegation, mentorship). Youll likely conduct demos and give presentations, and will be expected to contribute to the data science culture and ecosystem at CCRi through opportunities like design reviews and shared learning opportunities.

Who You Are

* Curious: You enjoy peeling apart a problem and examining the interrelationships between data and how they can be used to form a solution.
* Creative: You try new approaches to solving problems, looking for ways to apply techniques across domains and in new contexts.
* Practical: You explore theories with an eye to their real world applications and their potential for improving performance for clients.
* Collaborative: You work well on a team and understand how to lead a group of bright, technical coworkers. You can explain your work to your peers and source ideas and improvements from them.
* Determined: You enjoy the challenge of finding solutions to difficult problems, testing them to discover what is successful and what should be optimized further, to develop industry-leading tools. You learn from failure and trying again.
* Organized: You know how to keep track of both high-level goals and the tasks required to meet those goals. You take personal ownership of your teams success.
