Big Data Boston Message Board › Statistician / Data Scientist job opening in TechStars & MIT start-up
|A former member||
LinkCycle, a TechStars & MIT start-up, identifies resource efficiency opportunities for manufacturing companies with rapid payback. Manufacturing companies often don't know how resources flow through their production lines, and don't even know which products are most profitable. We use algorithmic and statistical techniques on available business data to derive resource use through each production lines identifying cost reduction opportunities, combined with electricity grid demand response for optimized scheduling.
We are a young company of five individuals and seven customers working on completing our initial projects to raise capital. We are looking for a statistician that would be interested in joining the start-up environment in the TechStars offices in Kendall Square. The position would be initially as a (part-time or full-time) contractor, with a large upside growth opportunity for becoming part of the co-founding team.
The requisite skills include:
- Python, C++, and/or R, preferably both Python and R.
- Non-linear / robust regression techniques
- Machine learning techniques
- Intellectual curiosity to understand trends in manufacturing production data, to help companies increase manufacturing efficiency
Our data driven approach replaces the need to install submeters or conduct expensive manual audits. The industrial sector comprises ~40% of end use of energy in the US, and our approach has the potential to make significant cuts in energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, and industrial pollution and waste.
