As a Senior Data Scientist with expertise in Machine Learning (ML), development and use of multi-model models, utilizing diverse sets of large data you will work with a team of Applied Scientists and Software Engineers to build innovative foundation models for robotic manipulation utilizing computer vision and scene perception technology. Your role will focus first on feature engineering, data collection and data usage from large data sets across Fulfillment Technologies and Robotics (FTR), with an eye on strategy going forward to unify a data strategy across organizations. This position requires high levels of analytical thinking, ability to quickly approach large ambiguous problems and apply analytics, technical and engineering expertise to rapidly analyze, validate, visualize, prototype and deliver solutions.

Key job responsibilities

  • Utilize expertise in feature engineering on massive data sets through exploratory data analysis across existing large data sets in Fulfillment Technologies and Robotics (FTR). Help identify areas where we could create new data sources that would improve training capabilities based on understanding of how different scenes in FCs could impact the trained model and ultimately performance of robotic manipulation.
  • Identify data requirements, build methodology and data modeling strategy across the diverse data sets for both short-term and long-term needs
  • Work closely with Applied Scientists in building FM solutions, ensuring that the data strategy fits the experimentation paths, as well as contribute to the FM strategy through identifying opportunities based on the data
  • Work with and develop large datasets (training/fine tuning) and bring large datasets together to inform both training in FOMO as well as across FTR
  • Design and implement data solutions, working closely with engineers to guide on best paths for building data pipelines and infrastructure for model training
  • Collaborate across teams both within and outside of FOMO on data strategy
