Lead Data Scientist

  • Overview

    We're looking for an experienced Data Scientist to help our new client, CognitOps driving their data and ML ecosystems to the next level.

    CognitOps is a cloud and ML-driven supply chain startup founded in 2018 and headquartered in Austin, TX. They tackle cool, challenging problems. For example, they help warehouses supply hospitals with PPE and critical medical equipment more efficiently. CognitOps helps e-commerce businesses ship orders on time. They tackle these challenging problems using modern technologies like machine learning, queue-based simulation, Google Cloud, Kubernetes, Kafka, and Scala. The team we join has decades of startup experience working with big data and building scalable, fault-tolerant, secure software and decades of experience working with warehouses and empathetically understanding the needs they have. CognitOps is still a small early-stage company. So you'll have an opportunity to come in, make a huge impact, and be a leader as the company grows.
