  • Has deep and broad expertise across several applied science disciplines, is scientifically versatile, and demonstrates scientific and industrial maturity.
  • Practical 5+ years experience in applying ML/AI to complex business problems.
  • 5 years of experience managing teams of research scientists/engineers and data scientists (experience managing geographically distributed, multi-cultural teams a plus)
  • Exceptional project management skills
  • Hands-on experience programming in Python, Matlab, R, Java, C++, or other programming languages.
  • Experience in large-scale ML systems and enabling technologies including commercial cloud stacks, resource provisioning/orchestration, and scaling methodologies (e.g., distributed optimization)
