Research Scientist - Data Science

Immuta - Columbus, OH (30+ days ago)

You'll work on the Research Team investigating the latest technologies and computational techniques relevant to data integration, virtualization, privacy, and analysis. You'll evaluate the utility of the technology or technique, it's relevance to Immuta, and, when relevant, build prototype integrations or demonstrations. The members of this team have deep knowledge of distributed systems and backgrounds in applied math.
Beyond your team, you’ll work closely with the Applied Data Science and Customer Success teams to understand customer use cases, usage patterns, and feedback. You’ll work closely with the Legal Engineering team to understand trends in regulations and best practices on a variety of regulatory & privacy related topics. Finally, you’ll work closely with the Product Team to ensure successful hand off and productization of research prototypes that transition to product features.
There is a great variety to the projects you’ll work on, but a common theme is that they are groundbreaking work in this field, suitable for publishing and/or patenting. Some examples of current projects include differential privacy and enhancements to Immuta’s implementation of it, mathematical techniques to fingerprint data and graphically represent to non-technical users changes in said fingerprint due to policy-driven data transformation, techniques for transforming streaming data based on data access policies.
