What You Will Do Here;

A Snode Engineer is someone who makes value out of data. Such a person proactively ingests information from various sources and analyses it for better understanding about how business/technology/people behave, and build applications that automate processes within this real-time ecosystem. There are many definitions of this job, and it is sometimes mixed with the Big Data Engineer occupation.

A Data Scientist or Engineer may be scientist, software engineer, and hacker, which is why the definition of the job becomes convoluted. The actual ratios vary depending on the skills required and type of job. Usually, it’s considered normal to bring people with different sets of skills into the Snode engineering team.

Snode engineering duties typically include creating various Machine Learning-based tools or processes within the company, such as anomaly detection engines or automated pattern recognition systems. People within this role should also be able to perform statistical analysis.

  • Select features, build and optimise classifiers using machine learning techniques
  • Data mining using state-of-the-art methods
  • Extend company’s data with third party sources when required
  • Enhance data collection procedures to include information that is relevant for building analytic systems
  • Process, cleanse and verify the integrity of data used for analysis
  • Conduct ad-hoc analysis to present results in a clear manner
  • Create automated anomaly detection systems including constantly tracking the performance.
  • Data-oriented problem solving ability
  • Compliance to the SNODE development standards
  • Ability to extend beyond core development language
  • Research new technologies/tools/languages/frameworks
