Our team: Learning Services Data Science (LSDS)
Our team is made up of data scientists from a wide variety of disciplines, including Applied CS, Systems Engineering, Physics, and Business. We support algorithm development, product analytics, and in some cases light ML engineering. We are currently spread across three offices in the US and this will be our first international location.
We have placed a strong emphasis on an open culture and agile execution so it will be great if you are aligned with these values.
Lead NLP algorithm development efforts in partnership with Engineering, Product, and the Business. Leverage new algorithms to navigate and leverage terabytes to petabytes of unstructured and semi-structured data.
