We are looking for someone with a strong background in machine learning, statistics and programming, and with a proven experience in applying machine learning to real business problems, particularly in the area of travel and e-commerce.

    • Strong statistical knowledge.
    • Comfortable working with big data technologies for Data Science, such as Apache Spark.
