Our interns will work on key problems related to applications of digital agriculture combining multiple data streams including weather, soil, imaging, drone and/or satellite to create new product insights and deliverables. The intern should be familiar with traditional machine learning and deep learning-based approaches for data analytics. This includes familiarity with Cloud/Linux development and able to perform data-preparation (wrangling, munging, pre-processing/cleaning and alignment), data-visualization, basic statistics and data modeling techniques with large datasets. The position will also require working on financial time-series data and some familiarity with related datasets is desirable.

Responsibilities - What You'll Do:

  • Analyze financial time-series data and integrate with other relevant data-sets to validate a variety of statistical hypothesis.

  • Design and implement novel big-data geospatial analytics to enable high-throughput data products for our digital agriculture space.

  • Hands-on integration of various data and sensor components including data clean up, alignment, normalization and ETL pipeline development.

  • Evolve and deploy our core machine learning/deep learning algorithms to enable highly optimized models to be delivered to our research customers and solve complex business problems.


Qualifications - What You'll Bring:

  • Currently enrolled in a graduate education program pursuing (or planning to pursue) a Ph.D. or M.S. in Computer Science, Remote Sensing, Software Engineering, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence or related scientific discipline.

  • Ideal candidate will have completed graduate level coursework in finance and investment theory, statistics and machine learning.

  • Minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA

  • Programming skills in Python and/or R, with use of scripting (Bash, etc.) to quickly create prototype and debug solutions on Cloud / Linux / embedded platforms.

  • Familiarity with geospatial tools including QGIS, GeoPandas, RasterIO and/or GDAL

  • Interest in learning new technologies, latest ML algorithms, programming techniques, languages, and operating systems.

  • Excellent interpersonal skills and a can-do attitude with the ability to thrive in a fast-paced dynamic environment. Experience in research, life sciences, or in data science is a plus.

  • Excellent analytical and problem-solving skills with the ability to work as part of a global team and, at times, independently while appropriately prioritizing tasks.

  • Strong verbal and written communication skills in English are required.

You'll Stand Out With:

  • A deep understanding of data processing/analysis algorithms and techniques

  • Experience with investment theory and facility with working with time-series datasets
