Overview

At Urbint, our mission is to make communities more resilient. We do this by pairing external data with artificial intelligence to identify areas of high risk and prevent catastrophic loss for utilities and infrastructure operators across the country. We are a team of close-knit engineers, entrepreneurs, and data geeks who obsess over problem-solving, new technologies, and making a positive impact in our communities

We encourage people from underrepresented groups to apply.

At Urbint, the machine learning team does not work on making consumers spend more or work on maximizing clicks. That is all fine; we work on reducing carbon emissions, reducing infrastructure risk and avoiding fatalities.  We find meaning and excitement solving these problems, and we hope you do, too.

We are looking for a Staff Data Scientist to join our high visibility, high impact Machine Learning team to help with this mission.  Members of the Machine Learning team have the option to major/minor in areas from a large data science specialization spectrum: Technical Product Management, People Management, Data Story-Telling,  Applied ML, ML Research, AutoML  and MLOps. This is a great role for someone who enjoys variety and is also looking to expand their skill set in a structured fashion.
