Sr Data Scientist  

KETOS provides users with real-time, actionable data and predictive insights on several water metrics (both volumetric and quality related) through remote, continuous unmanned smart monitoring for water grid management and water safety. 

KETOS is the one of the 1st in the Industry to integrate Water, Internet of Things (IoT), Full Stack Cloud Platform, AI/ML, Predictive Analytics and Data Science with a comprehensive patented solution of hardware devices (sensor nodes), secure IoT connectivity and an intelligent SaaS software platform for customer analytics while maintaining the reliability and data accuracy demanded in the Industry.

We are seeking an experienced Senior Data Scientist to participate in new product development from conception through deployment. You will have the opportunity to apply your knowledge of statistics and your analytical skills to mine data at scale an develop large-scale Machine Learning (ML) modules to reveal customer value data. You will support feature prototyping, and utilize industry best practices to write production-grade code. You will build data pipelines, implement ML-based analytical algorithms, and work closely with our software development team to set up back-end systems and interfaces that will deliver the next-generation analytics.
