Key Objectives

Key Objective 1: Plan, develop, and maintain sustainable data science services as components of larger applications.

    • Plan, develop, and maintain data ingestion, pre-processing, feature engineering, and processing services to make training, test, and production data easily and repeatably useable for data science services.
    • Plan, develop, and maintain core data science functionality (including artificial intelligence, machine learning, and custom data analysis functionality) in these services that measurably improve customer outcomes.
    • Plan, develop, and maintain systems for testing, evaluating, and improving the accuracy, efficiency, and value of these services for customer outcomes.
    • Develop and deploy these services within larger environments and applications, coordinating with full-stack and DevOps engineers to implement and leverage containerized environments, version control, CICD deployment patterns, standard tools and technology stacks, testing practices, and code standards.
    • Integrate these services with larger environments and applications, coordinating with full-stack and DevOps engineers to implement standardized service contracts, data security controls, and best coding standards and practices.
    • Communicate problems, approaches, possibilities, expectations, results, and data science principles to a variety of technical and non-technical audiences.

Key Objective 2: Plan, develop, and maintain AI/ML solutions as standalone services, demonstrations, processes, and custom tools.

    • Design, document, and communicate data and input requirements for developing standalone, repeatable AI/ML and data analysis solutions that measurably improve customer outcomes.
    • Plan, develop, and maintain complete data science solutions, using and extending frameworks, libraries, technologies, and approaches that leverage industry-standard practices for entity resolution, image classification, decision support, feature engineering, and other categories of problems.
    • Plan, develop, and maintain systems for testing, evaluating, and improving the accuracy, efficiency, and value of these solutions for customer outcomes.
    • Coordinate with full-stack and DevOps engineers to implement and leverage standard tools and technology stacks, testing practices, and code standards.
    • Implement these solutions so that their outputs can inform, apply to, and enrich data science services developed for integration with larger applications.
    • Communicate problems, approaches, possibilities, expectations, results, and data science principles to a variety of technical and non-technical audiences.

Key Objective 3: Perform exploratory data analysis and communicate insights to customers and the product team

    • Design, document, and communicate requirements and approach for data ingestion, pre-processing, feature engineering, and processing on custom data.
    • Plan, develop, and maintain data analysis solutions, using and extending frameworks, libraries, technologies, and approaches to identify data features that measurably improve customer outcomes.
    • Maintain a library of data analysis practices and approaches to grow our standard of practice and accelerate delivery.
    • Develop and use creative solutions to communicate results, features, value, and further questions, including narrative descriptions, visualizations, and highlighted features.
