ML Engineer/Data Scientist (Junior/Senior)

Oslo, Norway

Full Time

Overview

Optimeering is on a mission to make electricity simply work better by harnessing the power of AI. We build smart AI software apps to support our customers’ physical power market operations, making them more effective and profitable. 


Optimeering is seeking a Machine Learning Engineer/Data Scientist to join our Data Science team in Oslo, developing and building innovative forecasting and decision support SaaS tools and systems for the Nordic and European power markets.

About the Role

As ML Engineer/Data Scientist, you will:


  • Develop, test and implement basic and advanced ML algorithms and statistical techniques for forecasting and operational decision support in the power sector

  • Work with our sales team and power experts to identify new applications of cutting-edge machine learning techniques to our user problems

  • Collaborate with our development team to deliver our machine learning models securely, at speed, and at scale

  • Research and learn about new techniques and model architectures  

Requirements

You like nothing more than solving problems. You're driven by the challenge of understanding something new, designing and experimenting with ML algorithms to model it, and implementing your solution to deliver benefits to your users. 


You will be given a lot of responsibility in this role - we are a small but growing start up, and we all stand on each other's shoulders. And you will need to get your hands dirty - getting and mucking about with data, going shoulders-deep into the modelling mud to create value-driving algorithms, and working arm-in-arm with our dev team to deliver them to customers.


Experience with the following would be useful:

  • Experimental design and hypothesis testing

  • Machine learning frameworks like TensorFlow or PyTorch

  • Reading, understanding, and applying machine learning research

  • Time series forecasting and machine learning models for time series data

  • Implementing ML models in software and systems that are used by multiple customers (B2B or B2C)


You don´t have to be a “power expert”, but will need to understand what makes our customers tick, what they need, and how to deliver a solution.  Experience in power markets would be great, but it is not essential - you will however have the ability and desire to quickly develop expertise in this area. A technical background and enjoyment of new, innovative technologies and tech solutions would be ideal. 


You will have at least a couple of years of experience with ML outside of an academic environment. However the precise number is not so critical - the role is adaptable to match. What we are more interested in is your desire and ability to learn, grow and develop as we do.


Fluency in English is required, and a Scandinavian language would be great (but is not necessary).
