Senior Data Scientist
Mountain View, California
Chronicle

Born from X, Alphabet's moonshot factory, Chronicle is advancing cybersecurity for enterprises of all sizes. We are dedicated to helping companies find and stop cyber attacks before they cause harm. We work with the entire security industry to give good the advantage in the fight against cybercrime. Joining experts in large-scale cloud computing, big data, machine learning, and cybersecurity, you'll help build out the next generation of security intelligence solutions.

 

About the Role:

Data science and machine learning is a critical part of Chronicle’s product offering. At Chronicle we analyze large amounts of data to derive valuable insights for our customers.

As a data scientist, you will apply your experience in data analysis to understand the various datasets. You will work on defining and championing new data science related projects that will have a big impact on our customers. This will require you to collaborate with various internal Chronicle teams (product, engineering, and sales) for defining, scoping, and executing on the projects. You will use your machine learning skills to build new models, demonstrate the effectiveness of the models on the datasets, and the impact on the customers.

Due to the smaller size of our organization and rapid pace of growth and change, you will have cross-functional exposure at a company that moves quickly. The ideal candidate is someone who is comfortable operating in an organization that moves fast and someone who loves variety in their work. You are a self-starter and bring innovative approaches to problem solving, to develop and propose new ideas, and actively participate in improving the quality of our processes and product.

  • Implement analytical models into production by collaborating with software and machine learning engineers
  • Keep-up with the latest technological advancements in the area of machine learning

Minimum Qualifications:

  • Master’s degree or equivalent in Computer Science, Mathematics, or other related areas (including but not limited to statistics, operations research, bioinformatics, economics, computational biology, physics, electrical engineering, industrial engineering, etc.)
  • 5 years of relevant work experience analyzing and visualizing large data sets
  • 3 years of relevant work experience in building and testing analytical machine learning models with emphasis on bias-variance trade-offs, precision-recall analysis, and statistical hypothesis testing  
  • Experience in developing and pushing machine learning models into production
  • 5 years of relevant work experience with one or more general purpose programming languages including but not limited to: Python, SQL, Java, Go, and/or C++

Preferred Qualifications:

  • PhD in Computer Science or other related areas

If you believe you belong to any of the categories of protected veterans listed below, please indicate by making the appropriate selection. As a government contractor subject to Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA), we request this information in order to measure the effectiveness of the outreach and positive recruitment efforts we undertake pursuant to VEVRAA. Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

An "Armed forces service medal veteran" means a veteran who, while serving on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a United States military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985.

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.
