Senior Data and Machine Learning Scientist

Written By Prisma PhotonicsNovember 7, 20212 minutes

As a member of our ML team at Prisma Photonics, you will tackle unique challenges in the domain of Optical Fiber Sensing. Fiber Sensing data measures a unique generated signal along an optical fiber deployed by critical utility infrastructure and interprets it as a continuous acoustic signal originating from tens of thousands of virtual sensors spanning over hundreds of kilometers. You will develop expertise with this domain and apply novel ML approaches that address the domain’s specific challenges to detect, classify, and track spatio-temporal events. In addition, you will be responsible for the training of models and the inference production code running on the edge product. As a data scientist at Prisma Photonics, you will have access to the full data-acquisition stack and work with the software engineering, hardware, data, and field application teams.
