Technical lead in data science

  • Montréal, Quebec, Canada

Job description

Moov AI, an independent, Montreal-based company, has been bringing the power of artificial intelligence & machine learning to businesses of all sizes since 2018. Our mission is to make AI accessible across Quebec.

If, as a technical lead in data science, you are looking to evolve your career towards consultation and the practical application of artificial intelligence, and, at the same time, join a team that promotes staying true to oneself, we have an interesting opportunity for you.

Being a technical lead in data science at Moov AI

As a technical lead in data science within the technology leadership team, you provide your technical expertise and leadership in all matters related to data science. In addition to serving as a resource for questions related to your field of expertise, solution architecture, and model selection, you define the technological direction of solutions and ensure the quality of deliverables.

You ensure that business stakeholders (e.g., clients, project managers, technical team, etc.) understand the technological and scientific approach as well as the technological risks of the project. You ensure that clients understand the approach and assist them in managing the change for solution adoption.

You support team members in resolving complex technical issues and questions. You also participate in the modeling of solutions with the team (getting hands-on with the code) as needed.

You keep up with technological trends and industry best practices and integrate them into team activities. You proactively mentor team members to foster skill development.

A day at Moov AI:

Your day starts with the stand-up meeting for a project you support and a brainstorming session with the team to discuss the direction of the solution and unblock a difficult technical issue. Then, you assist delivery teams as needed, supporting them in overcoming challenges in their project progress.

Throughout the day, you engage in technology monitoring and ensure you stay up-to-date on data science topics, primarily in recommendation models and GenAI. You will also be involved in identifying, analyzing, and contributing to the development of our best practices related to your field of expertise.

Your career at Moov AI

You will experience a wide range of industries, functions, and clients; you will change jobs without changing employers. For example, AI solutions designed by Moov AI have led to reduced food waste at a major grocer, improved the STM's traffic prediction model, and enabled an international aerospace company to better predict engine maintenance. That's the kind of list that makes your mouth water.

Ultimately, we want every individual to show up to work as their authentic selves—no need for artificial professional identities. Our way of doing things has earned us recognition as the "Best Startup Employer in Canada 2024" by Forbes.
