Data Scientist

Job Description

Conscia is a technology start-up and the Product Development team lies at the heart of our business model. As such, we’re looking for creative and ambitious technology rockstars to join the team and drive the development of our AI-powered Data Management Platform. The Data Scientist is a key role in extending and delivering AI-enabled features of our product.

Reporting directly to our foosball-playing Chief Technology Officer, the successful member of the team will be involved in the planning, design and development of the AI features of the platform in addition to engaging with client-facing teams to understand the evolving nature of the business. As an early member of the team, we’re looking for an adept leader with the skills to deliver the task at hand while expanding their reach into different parts of the organization.

As a technology rockstar, here’s what we’re expecting as part of your A-game:

  • An expert level working knowledge of the machine learning platforms: Python, scikit-learn, Practical application of: word vectors/topic-modeling, clustering, classification.
  • Experience solving practical business problems with machine learning
  • An in-depth knowledge and understanding of technologies and concepts in the Big Data space
  • Exceptional architectural skills that allow you to break down a problem into high performance, scalable, and distributed solutions
  • Overdeliver and surprise - like we ask you to build a car and you deliver a Bugatti... complete with spinners.

These talents will help you net some serious props ( despite less than stellar foosball skills):

  • Having shared many coffees with product development teams (lattes in the case of UX)
  • Experience with TensorFlow,, Jupyter Notebooks, Docker, Node JS
  • Past experience with Enterprise systems (CMS, PIM, CRM)
  • Strategic ability to see the bigger picture and the steps to get there
  • Great stories about how you coached or mentored someone awesome
  • Jedi mind control (you’ll replace our sales team if you got this one covered!)

So, what’s it like working with the team at Conscia?

In short, it’s cool. As a tight knit group of innovators, technologists and designers, we share a common drive to learn, contribute and build something that helps change the way clients see their business - all the while having fun and not losing sight of the need for it to be an awesome experience along the way. Our soon-to-be office based in Mississauga will have all the work and social facets you’d expect with a startup - just less the in-house barista and slide (both earmarked for an office expansion). Did we mention foosball?
