Senior Data Scientist

Are you a scientist in love with all about data?
We are a Big Data platform company and data IS our product! We are looking to add skilled and passionate Data Scientists to our team in Milan.

  • Do you want to identify new opportunities, advocate your ideas, and test the latest ML/AI algorithms in a (real) Big Data framework?
  • Do you want to go beyond prototyping and turn your ideas into actual data products?
  • Do you want to join a company of experienced and passionate professionals? Working among peers is great, but adding mentors gives you a real chance at learning!

You will get the chance to work closely with everyone in our Data team, composed of both Junior and Senior Data Scientists, as well as to interface day by day with engineering and product teams. You could either mentor or be mentored!

Your final goal will be to create algorithms that turn our data into critical information and new products.

You will get your hands dirty with everything from data exploration and initial prototyping to deployment of data-driven production code.

We’ll guide you in identifying how to best leverage our data to improve our platform, working the Python/pySpark Data Science Stack and a modern architectural infrastructure. Don’t worry, you can always count on the support of both your senior teammates and experienced Big Data engineers.

What we expect you to have experience in:

  • Designing experiments, testing hypotheses, and building models
  • Conducting advanced data analyses and highly complex algorithms
  • Discovering insights and identifying opportunities through the use of statistical, algorithmic, mining, and visualization techniques
  • Providing data that is congruent and reliable, and validating your findings using an experimental and iterative approach
  • Proposing innovative ways to look at problems on the set of information available: we need your fresh insight!

Who you are:

  • 4+ years of experience in the latest ML/AI algorithms, Python/Pyspark, Data science stack.
  • A team player who loves to collaborate and work with stakeholders from different backgrounds in an international environment.
  • A strong (and fun!) communicator
  • You have a passion for finding pragmatic and smart solutions to complex problems
  • You *really* have a solid understanding of math and statistics
  • You have basics of SQL
  • You master Jupyter, pandas, NumPy, matplotlib/seaborn, and scikit-learn
  • You love to write clean and maintainable Python code

We’re also looking for:

  • Work hard/play hard mindset
  • Proficient in English (we work a lot with the New York office)
  • The ability to say no, and to explain why
  • Strong ping-pong skills

Experience in:

  • building/contributing to python libraries
  • geospatial or mapping technologies – it’s our bread and butter!
  • BigData (e.g. Spark, Presto, Hadoop)
  • Web application development (Dash, HTML, JS, React)
  • TensorFlow, Keras and/or PyTorch

Do you feel like looking in a mirror?

Examples of your work (e.g. GitHub Repositories, PDFs, Slideshare, etc.), Instagram profile, personal website: feel free to share with us anything that shows us what you’re passionate about! All this stuff matters just as much as your CV.

The perks we offer:

According to the latest covid regulations, we’re now able to attend our downtown Milan office again. We adopted a hybrid model, and provide 8 full weeks per year of full remote! In the others, you’re more than welcome to enjoy our ping pong table, lounge area and play Mario Kart.

Working in a hybrid model we manage to set up different kinds of events, aperitivo after work and interactive games via Zoom, just to name a few. Having a good time together is always a good plan and is super important for us!

We cover mobility expenses, offering yearly public transport subscriptions or a voucher for you to come around the office in an ecologic way

Providing a good life-work balance has always been our priority. We believe people are important and we are committed to create a positive and supportive workplace environment

At Spectus, we strive for Diversity & Inclusion within our teams as we believe different life experiences and perspectives can enrich ideas, foster innovation, and enhance the products we create. We don’t want people who simply ‘fit-in’, we want you to bring your true, complete self to contribute to our company. We’re looking forward to your application!
