I'm looking to hire a person for a full-time position as Staff Scientist (or
a similar title of your liking). The position is located in Boulder and
reports to me.
a.. Excellent communication skills. You should be very comfortable with
professional communications, including the authoring of status reports,
design and architecture documents, white papers, and possibly journal
b.. Excellent understanding of the basic paradigms of computer science,
especially including relational databases and AI (especially inference
models). You should already have a good sense of what it takes to implement
these paradigms (the mapping of SQL queries to a physical plan), or can
rapidly assimilate (as when the paradigms are reasonably abstract/obscure,
like Prolog/logic programming and WAM).
c.. Mathematical maturity. You should be very comfortable with the
abstract manipulation of numbers, as well as their visualization and
d.. Perl. We prototype in Perl. Perl is also used on production side where
it makes sense (it usually does, if not always - we're quite pragmatic). You
should be familiar with DBI and other handy modules. Other useful languages
to know: Prolog, C, Java.
e.. Independence. You can take the work and run with it.
f.. Experience with working with large volumes of data (data warehouse
environments) is very useful, but less critical.
Relationship to the rest of the company: I co-founded Empact Solutions, a
NYC-based firm 2 years ago as founding CTO. Last month, Empact completed an
institutional round of venture capital financing from MC Ventures, a
Boston-based VC. This is a significant milestone, given the current state of
the VC market. Now as Chief Scientist, my group is responsible for
prototyping all key elements of our technology. Your role as Staff Scientist
is a high visibility position! Briefly, but without really saying too much
of anything, our company focuses on data analysis (shall we say analytics?)
of certain data that exists in the relationships between companies ;). My
group is also engaged in a long-term data mining project in collaboration
with the Colorado School of Mines :)
