PI.EXCHANGE is a well-funded startup focused on the mission of democratising data science and providing AI & analytical services. Our vision is to create a platform where people, even without formal training in data science like IT managers, software engineers or business analysts can easily create, deploy and maintain their AI/ML applications on centralised or edge deployments. We aim to bring to our customers a quick and cost-efficient way to build smart applications and to supercharge their businesses with the power of Data Science, AI, and Analytics.
At PI.EXCHANGE, we are constantly pushing boundaries and challenging the status quo. We are doing it on a daily basis. We may be a small team but we have a huge ambition! Currently we are expanding and looking for awesome people to join us, from data scientists and software engineers to marketers and sales experts to join our team. If you are keen, we love to talk to you!
WHAT YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR
You will be joining as a member of PI.EXCHANGE’s core Data Science team in the development of our flagship product: the PI.EXCHANGE AI & Analytics Engine, an AIaaS self-service smart automated Data Science platform providing a unified GPU-accelerated pipeline for data preparation, ML/DL model development and life-cycle management.
- Primarily be a self-managing individual contributor. Research and develop new cutting-edge AI algorithms using techniques such as supervised/unsupervised ML, statistical/Bayesian inference etc. to power the AI & Analytics Engine with better, smarter, and more diverse recommendations for the end users;
- Bring your novel ideas to a production-ready state by implementing them as modules, while adhering to industry standards in coding: quality, maintainability, and in conformance with the overall architecture are of paramount importance;
- Participate in product-steering sessions in your technical capacity to:
- Pitch new ideas to improve the product;
- Respond to user feedback and business requirements by providing the necessary technical directions from a Data Scientist’s perspective, to put items on the product roadmap;
- Participate in the delivery of our product to customers and other customer facing activities;
- Participate in technical content writing. This may be in the form of product documentation, blog articles highlighting new features and use cases, as and when the need arises;
- Understand and advocate our long-term vision while working with the management and product teams to define and adapt the same; and
- Contribute to the evangelisation of our product and our culture internally and externally.
