Junior Data Scientist H/F

The team you will be joining: Nature solution team

The Nature team helps regulators, investors, governments get insights into physical and environmental risks across the world. Building on Kayrros' satellite processing abilities, the Nature team develops large-scale solutions for tasks such as biomass estimation, species recognition, deforestation quantification, physical and environmental risk modeling and mapping.

Role :

Data scientists play a key role at Kayrros, working both on R&D discovery topics and specific projects for customers. Most of their work consists of developing models using various methods based on recent scientific papers including computer vision, machine and deep learning, and signal processing. They also collaborate with data engineers to build robust pipelines and work hand in hand with data analysts to analyze and visualize the results of their models.

They face two main challenges:

  • The diversity and complexity of data available. Kayrros has a strong expertise in remote sensing and has been working with data from many different sensors (multispectral, hyperspectral, SAR, LIDAR, geostationary). Understanding the specificities of each technology and choosing the most appropriate for a given problem is therefore a crucial step.
  • Kayrros is building knowledge around climate modeling and risk scenarii.

As a data scientist, you will therefore have to:

  • Formulate problems considering available data and project constraints.
  • Explore and review existing approaches or relevant associated scientific literature.
  • Design, implement and test algorithms.
  • Continuously provide ideas to improve products and take part in all team discussions.
  • Grow a culture around remote sensing data.

Profile :

This is an ideal opportunity if you are looking for a six-month internship starting between May and July 2024 , and you want to join an impactful company.

  • You have a strong background and are passionate about image processing, machine learning, statistics, operations research. You are very interested in various topics including deep learning, time series analysis, computer vision, signal processing. You demonstrate experience in a least one of these areas
  • You have strong programming skills in Python, SQL, Machine Learning libraries, data visualization packages and data manipulation. Previous exposures to GitHub and R programming preferred, or additional languages like Julia
  • You are dynamic, curious and eager to learn about the questions underlying methane emissions monitoring and biomass.
  • You can design and deliver working prototypes in a fast-paced environment and then put them into production with the help of data engineers
  • You can communicate clearly in English, including with non-technical people
  • You are willing to be an active member of the team and have a real impact to the company success
