Req #: 15337

Job Summary


Given substantial growth and impact at Crowe, the machine learning team has formed into an official unit, Advanced Data Science (ADS), which is responsible for all machine learning and artificial intelligence throughout the firm. This team of about 20 data scientists works on a wide variety of projects utilizing numerous areas of machine learning, including: supervised regression/classification, unsupervised learning, anomaly detection, NLP, reinforcement learning, deep learning, forecasting, etc.

  • Teach ADS team members how to interact with team resources
  • Guide the growth of ADS infrastructure in response to the team's needs

Note: The ADS team is also hiring for the following roles: Data Scientist/Statistics and Data Scientist/Modeling

  • Experience with designing, deploying, and troubleshooting distributed systems
