DataRobot is looking to grow our team with an experienced Data Scientist and R developer.

DataRobot provides Data Science tools in an integrated platform, helping users accelerate construction of accurate predictive models and gaining insight from their data. DataRobot supports an official R package that interacts with our API to help R users leverage DataRobot in familiar workflows.

Job responsibilities include maintenance of the existing R package functionality, adding support for new functionality from the DataRobot API, and working with partners to create integrations with DataRobot through the API and potentially the R package. Though the primary job responsibility is rooted in the R package, these integrations may require working knowledge of python, javascript, or other programming languages. Interested candidates should have broad exposure in programming, machine learning and data science with specific expertise in R package development.

Main Requirements:

  • Experience developing R packages and releasing them on CRAN.
  • Expertise in R and its common predictive modeling packages.
  • Experience developing clients for REST APIs.

Desired Skills

  • Primary developer on a well-used and long-running CRAN package.
  • Strong customer interaction skills.
  • Fluency with scripting (Python / R).
  • Familiarity with machine learning techniques and use cases.
  • Familiarity with a variety of technical tools for the manipulation of datasets.
  • Experience with machine learning techniques.
  • Hands-on experience building and implementing predictive models.
