Your Success is Our Success.

About Us:

Each piece of Komatsu earthmoving equipment streams live data into our cloud databases. The Remote Health Monitoring team processes this data to detect developing faults or misuse and tracks the machine’s performance. Our team is composed of data scientists who create algorithms, data engineers that support the execution of the analytics suite, and subject matter experts that review the algorithm’s results.

We work on time-series data, and mainly perform pattern recognition or unsupervised anomaly detection. Our algorithms use a variety of methods: from formal logic to statistical/Bayesian methods, all the way to deep learning models.

This is 12 month fixed term contract

The Role:

An opportunity exists for a Data Scientist to join our team. You will have two main responsibilities:

  • Overseeing the end-to-end development of an analytic: from gathering the requirements, prototyping, progress reports, through to validation and release in a production environment.
  • Developing the core algorithm: identifying suitable models, prototyping and validation

Culture & Benefits

We support our employees in maintaining their technical skills, through training, certifications or attending events. You will work in a constantly evolving environment with modern tools: fast and distributed time-series databases and platforms such as Spark, Databricks, etc.

You will work as part of a diverse team in modern offices and we offer flexible work arrangements.

Requirements and Skills:

We seek candidates with a background in Mathematics, Science or Engineering and with exposure to data analytics through an advanced degree and/or industry experience.

In addition to the above, the following skills are desirable.

We will however consider candidates which do not possess all these desirable skills, but have the mindset to learn:

  • Experience with Python (this is our main language) and common software development tools (such as Git) and frameworks (such as pandas).
  • Proficiency creating and evaluating statistical or machine learning models with packages such as scikit-learn, statsmodels, keras, or the equivalent library if you are coming from an R or Java/Scala background.
  • Previous experience with time-series data, unsupervised anomaly detection, imbalanced datasets.
  • Experience with distributed compute platforms such as Databricks/Spark or Kubernetes.
  • Experience with timeseries databases like OpenTSDB, InfluxDB, Prometheus.
  • We do not expect candidates to possess knowledge specific to the earthmoving industry, however knowledge or interest in electrical and mechanical systems will put you ahead of others.

Komatsu offers a zero-harm culture in the work place, competitive remuneration package, and to drive success we employ people with different skills, abilities, cultural backgrounds, experiences, preferences, ethnicities and from different generations. Join the Komatsu family and you’ll become a part of a dynamic, supportive and inclusive work environment, with opportunities for career progression on a global scale, training and personal growth.
