Interested in building and executing geospatial analytics on top of millions of square kilometres of aerial imagery working closely with key property insurance customers? Nearmap is recruiting for a Principal Data Scientist to join the AI Output Systems team within the AI Systems group.
Nearmap is a Sydney-based global location intelligence company. We have tens of petabytes of high quality aerial imagery covering half a million square kilometres a year at 5-7cm resolution, and regularly captured imagery dating back to 2009. We produce automated 3D models of entire cities, and rich AI-driven vector maps, which turns our visual content into semantic information to power decisions in a wide range of organisations.
We are currently hiring a Principal Data Scientist to join our amazing, collaborative team. The AI Output Systems team we designs, builds, and operates software systems that transform aerial imagery to insight. Our technology stack is based on the Python scientific libraries and traverses deep learning technology such as Tensorflow and Pytorch, cloud native technology such as Kubernetes, Kubeflow and Kafka, and computational geometry / GIS tools such as the Shapely and GeoPandas libraries.
Nearmap is a high-growth company, the ideal candidate will embrace an environment where things happen quickly and continuously. We aim for all employees to feel supported in their career development, with an abundance of opportunities for mentorship and cross-functional team projects.
We are looking for highly skilled and experienced Data Scientist at Principal level with extensive industry experience and a track record of R&D achievements. Experience with designing and training custom production Machine Learning models is essential, as is the desire to build out a small team. We need our engineers to be collaborative, versatile, innovative team members with an enthusiasm for best practice, as we continue to push technology forward.
A typical day will look like this:
We are after an exceptional candidate, who has real world experience but is still eager to innovate and learn.
Highly desirable domain knowledge:
Formal education in a field related to numerical science (Bachelor’s degree in computer science, engineering, statistics, physics, etc.). Applicants with a Masters/PhD will fit in well within the team, but are by no means necessary - we’re more interested in what you can do!
Some of our benefits:
Nearmap takes a holistic approach to our employees’ emotional, physical and financial wellness. Some of our current benefits include competitive pay, access to the Nearmap employee share scheme, short and long-term financial incentives, flexible working options, paid volunteer days, gym and phone rebates, and lots of development opportunities including hack-a-thons and pitch-fests.
