What You’ll Do
As a Data Scientist I/II you will directly impact Slingshot’s vision; to accelerate space sustainability to create a safer and more connected world. In your new role, you will develop data sets, and assist in coding simulations, algorithms, and prototypes that lend insights into key business arenas and future opportunities. Your work will help integrate cutting-edge approaches into Slingshot data science software products, and bolster dataset development, research, insights, and predictions. You will join a strong matrixed data science team and culture, and identify and design data science products, business concepts, and outreach activities. Finally, in your new role you will identify, lead, and deliver insights as datasets, code bases, papers, internal communications, and IP.
