At DataLabs Capital One India, we are at the cutting edge of solving some of the fundamental business problems using advanced data methodologies, statistics and machine learning algorithms.
In DataLabs Model Risk Management team, we defend the company against model failures and find new ways of making better decisions with models. We use our statistics, software engineering, and business expertise to drive the best outcomes in both Risk Management and the Enterprise. We also understand that we can’t prepare for tomorrow by focusing on today, so we invest in the future: investing in new skills, building better tools, and maintaining a network of trusted partners. We learn from past mistakes and develop increasingly powerful techniques to avoid their repetition.
In this role you will:
Partner cross-functionally with data scientists, quantitative analysts, business analysts, software engineers, and project managers to manage the risk and uncertainty inherent in statistical and machine learning models in order to lead Capital One to the best decisions, not just avoid the worst ones.
Build and validate statistical and machine learning models through all phases of development, from design through training, evaluation and implementation
Develop new ways of identifying weak spots in model predictions earlier and with more confidence than the best available methods
Assess, challenge, and at times defend state-of-the-art decision-making systems to internal and regulatory partners
Leverage a broad stack of technologies — Python, R, Conda, AWS, and more — to reveal the insights hidden within huge volumes of data
Build upon your existing machine learning and statistical toolset - both by learning new technologies and by building custom software tools for data exploration, model performance evaluation, and more
Communicate technical subject matter clearly and concisely to individuals from various backgrounds both verbally and through written communication; prepare presentations of complex technical concepts and research results to non-specialist audiences and senior management
Flex your interpersonal skills to translate the complexity of your work into tangible business goals, and challenge model developers to advance their modeling, data, and analytic capabilities
The ideal candidate is:
Inquisitive. You thrive on bringing definition to big, undefined problems. You love asking questions and pushing hard to find answers. You’re not afraid to share a new idea.
Technical. You’re comfortable with open-source languages and are passionate about developing further. You have hands-on experience developing data science solutions using open-source tools and cloud computing platforms.
Statistically-minded. You’ve built models, validated them, and backtested them. You know how to interpret a confusion matrix or a ROC curve. You have experience with clustering, classification, time series, and deep learning.
Innovative. You continually research and evaluate emerging technologies. You stay current on published state-of-the-art methods, technologies, and applications and seek out opportunities to apply them.
