There is only one Data Cloud. Snowflake’s founders started from scratch and designed a data platform built for the cloud that is effective, affordable, and accessible to all data users. But it didn’t stop there. They engineered Snowflake to power the Data Cloud, where thousands of organizations unlock the value of their data with near-unlimited scale, concurrency, and performance. This is our vision: a world with endless insights to tackle the challenges and opportunities of today and reveal the possibilities of tomorrow.

Our team also works closely with Product to assess the financial impacts of new product features, with Sales to understand and predict customer behavior, and develops and applies anomaly detection algorithms to cost and revenue data.

We are looking for someone who has significant experience employing ML algorithms on time series data and is both equally at home conducting applied research as well as implementing and operationalizing their ideas to meet business driven timelines.? As Finance touches on all aspects of the business, you should have a desire to learn about customer behavior and the important drivers of various departments.


  • Work with time-series datasets to refine and extend the core forecasting models and algorithms we use for many of our key financial metrics
  • Be the owner of ML models that are critical to Snowflake’s business?
  • Design and operationalize a rigorous continuous improvement framework to ensure our forecasting models remain highly accurate and responsive to business needs
  • Identify and build solutions for operational use cases in forecasting —e.g. further automation, system monitoring and alerting, outlier detection, etc.
    Generate insights into drivers of our business leveraging statistical methods and participate in extending and developing internal tools used for this purpose
  • Think creatively to find optimal solutions to our complex, typically unstructured problems.


  • MS/PhD in a quantitative discipline (Math, Statistics, Operations Research, Economics, Engineering, or CS)
  • Extensive experience building production-ready ML models for time series applications
  • Experience validating ML models for business-critical use cases
  • Experience conducting open-ended research projects and literature reviews?
  • 5-7+ years of experience with Python and familiarity with SQL?
  • Experience working with large-scale machine-generated data (e.g., log, application, or customer-usage data).
  • Hands-on experience with MPP databases, such as Snowflake, Redshift, BigQuery, Vertica, etc.
  • Ability to clearly present learnings to business leaders and technical stakeholders.
  • The ability to thrive in a dynamic environment. That means being flexible and willing to jump in and do whatever it takes to be successful.

Snowflake is growing fast, and we’re scaling our team to help enable and accelerate our growth. We are looking for people who share our values, challenge ordinary thinking, and push the pace of innovation while building a future for themselves and Snowflake.
