  • Design machine learning systems that deliver highly scalable, low-latency results on streaming data.
  • Influence strategic direction for the data science at Duo.
  • Work closely with Duos engineering team to deliver your advances into the hands of millions of users at thousands of Duo customers.


You should have...
  • Understanding of machine learning algorithms and experience implementing them. You know how to test whether your classifier is working and how to fix problems if it isnt. You can develop custom approaches to challenging problems.
  • An MS or PhD in a quantitative field such as statistics or computer science, or demonstrated ability to perform original research.
  • Familiarity with at least one data analysis environment (Python/pandas/sklearn, R, etc.).
