Transform Decisions

The world’s looked to data analytics to bridge the gap between floods of data and the struggle to use that data effectively to make timely, impactful decisions.  Today, most organizations are awash in analytics that “aren’t quite right” – models that were developed to generally, or too slowly, to be effective in dynamic, fast-paced environments.  Striveworks is simplifying ModelOps with a powerful and extensible platform that instantiates the data analytic process as code.  

Striveworks is trusted by leading Fortune 500 firms as well as leaders in the public sector to be their primary solution for managing model development, monitoring, and governance – and ensuring those models solve the real challenges their organizations face.  

Striveworks’ Chariot Platform enables users to turn their own production data into models and turn models into production systems.  Uniquely, as you train, test, deploy, and use models, our lineage system enables you to track both the “upstream” provenance of model and data sources, but also the “downstream” usage of the resultant model inferences.  Combining this with a highly principled experience for data and model development, Chariot gives our customers in highly regulated industries an unmatched governance solution over the top of a performant ModelOps platform.  


The Role

As a Data Scientist at Striveworks you’ll be challenged—and trusted—on day one to be a core contributor to the projects and direction of the company.

You’re right for this challenge if you value and possess technical expertise and you push the boundaries of your own capabilities. In this mission-critical work, you will design and lead development cycles for a vertically-integrated data analytics effort from sensor to platform to end user. Our mission is focused on task automation, data analytics, deep learning, computer vision, and natural language processing.

 The Right Fit

We spend a lot of time in our hiring process talking about shared values. Why? We passionately believe that fostering an environment where people can self-actualize and pursue greatness is the best way to achieve our individual and collective goals. What does this mean? We want an environment where you persevere relentlessly to achieve your goals. You know the team has the same goals as you, and you make and accept decisions for the team with humility. Your say/do ratio is 1. You know that there is no smartest person in the room. Makes sense? We’re already on the same page. 

Here’s what else we’re looking for:

  • 10+ years of relevant experience
  • Mastery of Python
  • Ability to design, implement, and document complex code
  • Deep understanding and intuition around machine learning techniques, statistical, and predictive modeling
  • Bachelor of Science Degree in related discipline
  • Excellent project planning and communication skills
  • Experience leading technical teams
  • Driven, self-directed personality
  • Strong sense of mission and commitment to making a difference
 The Wish List
  • Eligibility and willingness to obtain a US Security Clearance
  • Knowledge of data pipelines
  • Experience with direct application to unstructured data such as computer vision and/or NLP
  • Advanced (MS or PhD) degrees in mathematics, physics, statistics, machine learning, or related quantitative disciplines
 The Tech Stack

We believe in constant curiosity and peer-driven learning. As a Data Scientist at Striveworks, you’ll have access to our growing learning library, learn about—or present—the latest research at our weekly journal club, participate in open-source projects, and take part in pair programming. Find some of our public projects at github.com/Striveworks. You’ll be able to grow your skills in:

  • Pytorch
  • Python 
  • GoLang
  • Javascript
  • Kubernetes
 The Benefits
  • Top-of-market salary and total compensation
  • Generous equity plan
  • Health/vision/dental insurance
  • Free lunches and snacks
  • Flexible PTO plan

An Insider's view of Striveworks

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Striveworks' office environment is as productive and helpful of one that a software developer can ask for; ops is awesome at providing a variety of snacks/drinks. Context switching—exacerbated by many offices—can be highly disruptive to productivity; however, the office culture promoted at Strive allows me to get the heads down time my work needs.

Will

Senior Frontend Developer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Collaboration at Strive is dynamic and productive because everyone feels a sense of ownership. It's a healthy combination of impromptu and coordinated, and it almost always involves people from multiple teams. As an example, the DS team happily explains ML papers to the company at lunch and SWEs gladly walk Data Scientists through Kubernetes tasks.

George

Data Scientist

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

The trust Striveworks placed in me since day one gave me the opportunity and autonomy to grow both my technical and business development skills. I've improved as a developer by working alongside experienced individuals on a variety of problems. I've grown my BD skills with interactions that allowed me to refine my communication of complex topics.

Eddy

VP, Sales Engineering

What makes someone successful on your team?

A successful team member exemplifies our values (trust, perseverance, ownership) and vision. They're fueled and fascinated by the nature of their work, and deeply align with its impact. They tackle challenges with intensity, execute with intention, and see opportunities as means for refinement and growth.
