  • Deep understanding of statistical modeling, machine learning, deep learning or data mining concepts; track record of solving problems with these methods
  • Technical database knowledge (Oracle, NoSQL, data modeling) and experience optimizing SQL queries on large data
  • Ability to write SQL fluently, recognize and correct inefficient or error-prone SQL, and perform test-driven validation of SQL queries and their results
  • Proficiency in Microsoft Office and Windows applications; ability to quickly learn and achieve proficiency in new software applications
  • Availability to work periodic 24/7 on-call support as required by the team's rotation schedule

It'd be great if you also have:
