As we expand, our incubator and accelerator companies require more than ever data science support and now we are looking for another Data Scientist to join our team. This will include meeting with our portfolio companies, working with their engineers to build their data pipelines and assist with the implementation of AI/ML algorithms. You will also spot opportunities to leverage the companies’ internal data and discuss with the Founders Factory team ways to improve their roadmap.
This is an amazing opportunity to work with an extremely varied portfolio of ambitious AI startups, from Robotic Restaurants to Industrial Inspection, from Orbital Image Recognition to Customer Service automation, from AI-enabled Product Design to Scientific Discovery tools. The successful candidate will work closely with the Chief Scientific Officer, Jeffrey Ng, who follows our portfolio from a strategic perspective.
This role will suit candidates who have built data pipelines, AI and ML systems and now want to work with more companies, each with their own different domains, products and infrastructure, in one interconnected network. Mentoring and coaching will be available on technical AI/ML aspects and also how to work with a big portfolio.
There is large scope to help an amazing range of data-driven and AI companies from the bottom up and to broaden your horizons.
