Hi all,

My team is looking for a Principal Data Scientist to join us!

A bit about our team:
The Insights AI team, within Microsoft’s Digital Transformation Platform, is infusing AI capabilities within various Dynamics 365 Insights Applications, such as D365 Customer Insights, supply chain analytics, and process mining. The team builds advanced machine learning models on transactional, behavioral and market data that powers these insights. As a data scientist in the team, you will work on techniques to deliver insights on how customers can optimize their end-to-end supply chain, including, but not limited to, Bayesian and probabilistic models, reinforcement learning, constraint optimization & forecasting. You will work on large scale structured and unstructured data, apply state of the art techniques on real world datasets, and build and deploy these models using the latest cloud technologies. This is a fun and fast paced environment, where data scientists are empowered to innovate. It is also an amazing opportunity to join an ambitious project in its early stage with a tremendous scope to grow.


As a data scientist in this team, you will be responsible for:

  • Formulating a real-world enterprise scenario into a machine learning problem and think of optimal ways of solving it
  • Data wrangling with large data sets on the cloud to understand the properties of the data
  • Transforming data into innovative features/signals that can improve a machine-learning tasks.
  • Participate in end-to-end machine learning model lifecycle, from prototyping, implementing & evaluating machine learning and deep learning models, followed by deployment and monitoring using Azure tools
  • Working in a team with other data scientists, engineers, UX experts to deliver an intuitive, robust solution to the customer
  • Lead and participate in design, implementation and execution of projects with a team of data scientists
  • Self-learning new techniques and advances in machine learning from textbooks and research papers and applying them to your problem.

Required Qualifications: 

  • 6+ years of experience (or research projects in lieu of industry experience) in the areas of data science & machine learning leveraging Python, R, Matlab or related ML programming language
  • 1+ years of practical experience with modern techniques for solving optimization problems and using reinforcement learning algorithms or probabilistic models (such as Markov Chain Monte Carlo methods etc.)

Preferred Qualifacations: 

  • Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Computer Science, Engineering, Applied Mathematics, Statistics, or related fields
  • Demonstratable skills and experience in driving projects end-to-end from conception to production
  • Knowledge and demonstrable skills in optimization & forecasting problems & probabilistic models (experience with reinforcement learning models is a plus)
If you are interested, or want to learn more about the openings, please email me at mayank.sh...@microsoft.com, and apply directly for the position through the listing at Principal Data & Applied Scientist in Other, Other, United States | Engineering at Microsoft.
