#Securing your Future!

We are looking for a creative, curious, and motivated individual to join our corporate data science team, which is part of the CTO’s Office at HID Global. Your primary focus will be developing and optimizing algorithms that operate on data from a diverse range of sources and sensing technologies.  The applications for the algorithms you develop are diverse, spanning many aspects of security and trusted identities. In some projects you may be leading the development of proof-of-concept systems that demonstrate new analytic capabilities. In other projects you may be part of a team seeking to improve the performance of current products or services.


At times you may be developing algorithms based on data from video or imaging systems, BLE RTLS data, UWB radar, equipment condition monitoring sensors, and/or other types of sensory data. In some cases, you may develop solutions based on deep learning or other modern types of machine learning. At other times you may employ classical data science algorithms. Frequently you will be working as part of a multi-disciplinary technical team addressing multiple aspects of a new product or service.

What you will be doing

  • Lead and mentor fewer senior data scientists and engineers.
  • Develop novel analytic methods and/or adapt known analytic methods to carry out various commercially relevant functions.
  • Optimize and improve on algorithms that are part of current commercial offerings.
  • Work within multidisciplinary teams to develop new system designs or optimize existing ones to enable and enhance analytic capabilities.
  • Invent new analytic systems and methods, write invention disclosures, and work with others to create patent applications.

What we are looking for    

  • Ph.D. in relevant physical sciences or mathematics. Candidates with equivalent education plus relevant work experience may also be considered.
  • 10+ years of relevant commercial experience leading teams developing novel data analytic solutions
  • Strong skills in commercial algorithm development using scientific programing languages such as Python, Matlab, etc.
  • Demonstrated working knowledge of C/C++.
  • Demonstrated working knowledge of modern machine learning platforms such as Tensorflow and PyTorch
  • Able to apply fundamental statistical concepts to data and experiments
  • Proficient at creating visualizations and other means to interpret and explain key characteristics of data and/or results
  • Experience working with cloud platforms such as AWS, GCP, and Azure
  • Demonstrably inventive through a history of technical publications, presentations, web posts, and/or patents
  • Comfortable learning about and working across diverse sensor technologies and analytic approaches and have demonstrated this throughout your career.

Why Should You Apply?

  • Excellent terms and conditions
  • Flexibility
  • On-the-job training and development
  • Work as part of a global team
