Data Scientist


Data Team


Ubiety Technologies, Inc is dedicated to developing innovative device detection and Radio Frequency signaling products that improve the safety and security of homes, businesses, and communities.  We offer a fast-paced, highly collaborative startup environment where you will be inventing and developing transformative products to improve the lives of our customers.  You will be working alongside extremely talented engineers and creative designers from inception through delivery of a revolutionary product.

We’re looking for a data scientist to join Ubiety’s growing Data Team.  Our small but mighty team is responsible for all things data including internal reporting/dashboarding, ad-hoc analyses, core data science R&D on RF detection, and ML model development and deployment.  Because our team covers such a wide range of responsibilities, this role is an excellent opportunity to grow as a holistic data scientist developing skills such as data engineering, ML modeling, DevOps, as well as soft-skills.

Some examples of projects this role will tackle include:

  • Developing ML models to solve various problems such as classifying and counting nearby RF-emitting devices based on captured RF signals and metadata
  • Leading novel research efforts into cellular RF detection and generating insights based on captured data
  • Conducting research studies to understand RF data emitted by non-traditional devices (automobiles, drones, wearables, etc)
  • Fine tuning Cassandra queries or Snowflake access patterns to reduce latency and costs

This role reports to the Director of Data Science and sits within the Data Team.  Depending on the project you will have the opportunity to work with colleagues across the Data Team and the wider Engineering org, as well as independently.  You will have a lot of opportunities to take ownership and deliver on your work!

In addition to a competitive base salary, this position is also eligible for equity awards based on factors such as experience and performance.  We believe strongly that if you contribute to adding to Ubiety’s value, you should share in that value.
