You'll Need to Have:

  • Strong background in machine learning including experience implementing models at scale
  • Extensive experience using Python (including scikit-learn) or similar languages
  • Extensive experience analyzing data using SQL

It'd be great if you had:

  • Previous experience using Spark
  • Experience with statistical methods like regression, GLMs or experiment design and analysis
  • Exposure to Tableau, QlikView, Mode, Matplotlib, or similar data visualization tools
