Our data intelligence platform is the first and only system of record for product quality in oil and gas, bringing disruptive transparency to an industry underserved by technology.

We’re backed by notable tech and energy investors including Wing VC, Greylock Partners, Sallyport, and Y Combinator. Our offices are in Houston, Calgary, and Toronto.

To support our rapid growth, we are looking for a Data Consultant to join our Analytics Team.

What you will do

    • Combine rigorous statistical analysis with first-principles insights from physics and chemistry to improve accuracy of customers’ measurements and optimize trading decisions
    • Interact with clients and internal stakeholders to define the technical implementation of the solutions to clients’ problems
    • Define the requirements, conduct research, and build prototypes for data science algorithms
    • Build visualization tools to explain insights to the stakeholders (field technicians, traders and executives)

What you bring to the team

    • Growth mindset, passion for learning new things, restlessness
    • First-principles thinking – you have the strong desire to understand any topic at a deeper level than most, and are unsatisfied with decisions based on convention or unjustified assumptions
    • Ability to work in a fast-paced environment, formulate and test hypotheses quickly and efficiently
    • Proficiency with Python and common data packages (NumPy, Pandas, SciPy) and version control (Git)
    • Ability to work with disparate data sources (i.e SQL, CSV, APIs)
    • Comfortable with Unix-like operating systems  (Linux, MacOS X) and command line interface
    • Experience with basic (e.g. random forest, SVMs) and advanced (e.g. deep learning, stochastic processes) machine learning methods and tools (TensorFlow, Keras, PyTorch)
    • Bachelor’s degree or higher in computer science, engineering or another mathematically related field (e.g. Physics, Math, Statistics, etc.), or equivalent experience outside of academia
    • Basic understanding of physics, chemistry (1st or 2nd year level) is nice to have, but not required
    • 1-2 years experience in a similar role (consulting, banking, etc.) with a proven track record of taking ownership and delivering projects to completion
