We're looking for exceptional Machine Learning and AI scientists who are eager to engage in all project stages, from problem identification to model deployment. Ideal candidates are self-motivated, have a strong sense of initiative, and a lifelong passion for learning to navigate the rapidly evolving field of mobility technology. We offer the freedom to conduct original research, select the most suitable methodologies, and tackle world-class machine learning challenges.

This role involves applying AI and ML to innovate in areas such as autonomous vehicles, cybersecurity, customer interaction, and product design. You'll be part of a forward-thinking team dedicated to using AI and ML to create groundbreaking solutions and shape our strategic direction in these fields and beyond.

  • Analyze source data and data flows, working with structured and unstructured data (text, audio, images, video, etc.)
  • Manipulate high-volume, high-dimensionality data from varying sources to expose and highlight patterns, anomalies, relationships, and trends
  • Apply AI and Machine Learning technology to solve complex, real-world problems
  • Analyze and visualize diverse sources of data, interpret results in a business context and report results clearly and concisely
  • Fulfill problem formulation and ML technique consulting requests in a timely manner
  • Communicate and present analytical models to business customers and executive management
  • Work collaboratively with different business partners and be able to present results in a clear and concise manner

  • Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science, Mathematics, Statistics, Operations Research
  • Experience with the complete software lifecycle
  • 3+ years of experience with delivering and maintaining production software products
