Want to do Something Different? | (Machine Learning) | San Francisco

data scientist

San Francisco is filled with amazing minds at the forefront of Data Science but do you want to do something slightly different? Can you build and deploy Machine Learning models as well as code in Python & R? Are you a Data Scientist who enjoys stepping away from the desk and helping people like me to understand what you do? As well as being technically excellent do you also have amazing consulting skills, where you can manage stakeholders and consult on complex Machine Learning projects? If this is the case then you may love to do something different!


My client is a Data Science company, not a consultancy, publisher, fintech or a general tech company. This is something they feel very strong about, their founders are Data Scientists as is the vast majority of the workforce of 300 and as such Data Science (more specifically Machine Learning) is at the absolute heart of everything they are about.


Their business is automated Machine Learning, predictive analytics and Artificial Intelligence. They have developed products which can offer these services to some of the most recognised brands across multiple sectors worldwide. In order to do this they hire some of the most talented people in the industry who can research how to improve and develop their product, as well as those who are world-class business developers and salespeople who can engage the market in a way that raises their profile significantly.


However these are not the people we are currently looking for, a Customer Facing Data Scientist is a bit of an in-betweener. A mix of world-class hands-on work building Machine Learning models for clients as well as more consultancy-style work in a client facing role. Your role entails consulting with new clients to find out what they are looking for from the product, what problems are they looking to solve, then going away and personalising the product for them, getting hands on with some data before coming back in and implementing into their systems, providing technical demonstrations to both in house data & engineering teams as well as to non-technical C-level stakeholders. From here you then act as a point of contact going forward, the face of the business for this client.


For this role we look for people who first and foremost are a Data Scientist, preferably a pretty senior one who has been working as one for 4-5 years. You will have great skills specifically in building Machine Learning models but you will also not be the kind of person who just sits in a dark room and plays with numbers. You will be comfortable in a commercial and client-facing role and will have the skills of a consultant alongside your coding capabilities in Python & R.


This role in particular focuses on working with some of their partner organisations… the “big 4” type ones. They have great clients who need the services of this business, and you are going to be the one to bring it to them!


The salary is very generous and flexible, there is no upper limit for the right person. This is also a role where you get stock options and bonus on top, plus the growth plans are mahoosive so you are going to be invested in heavily!


You need to be based out of the San Francisco area and there will be regional travel, but nothing too far and too often. Also you need to have the right to work in the USA, I can’t help you with a work permit I am afraid.


If you call me I can tell you more details about who the company are and what their huge plans are. This is a role which is different to most others and could be a huge opportunity for the right person. Get in touch today on ard@redcat-digital.com.
