SmartSense Analytics Team
Targeting August hire
 
Digi SmartSense deploys Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) systems to transform how organizations sense, monitor, and make decisions. Our systems help companies measure their world, transmit the metrics to a centralized location, alert when there is something to be concerned about and even predict key events before they happen. Our customers rely on our solutions to help them do what they do better; we need your help to help us do what we do better!
 
Within SmartSense, members of the Analytics team work with internal and external customers to prototype, evaluate, and transition to operational status new tools and techniques aimed at improving our current monitoring capabilities and developing new analytics products. The Analytics team drives all stages of projects, from identification, ingestion, and cleansing of data to extracting key parameters and modeling real-world systems to building and scaling classifiers and applying various Machine Learning techniques for interpreting data to developing intuitive and effective visualizations and reports.
 
In this role, you will be involved in the transformation of sensor data and instrumentation into reports and dashboards that allow effective monitoring of the environments being sensed and of the sensors and networks we have deployed. The challenges are as diverse as the potential solutions, and you will have freedom to explore approaches to meeting the challenges coupled with responsibility for delivering effective products. You will become a go-to team member for people inside and outside the Analytics team looking to access and interpret the various data feeds our sensors and systems produce. 
 
We are interested in someone with excellent coding skills and discipline (with specific experience in python), exposure to the underlying concepts of relational and non-relational data stores, and hands-on experience scaling up data analysis. As a foundational member of a rapidly growing team, you will have the opportunity to contribute across a range of Data Engineering, Architecture, and DevOps roles and be constantly challenged to extend your skills and the solutions the Analytics team is able to provide. Someone with a strong software engineering or data engineering background should find this an ideal opportunity to leverage that core set of skills while presenting the opportunity to extend into data analysis, visualization, report generation, and interpretation of business goals into analytics project requirements.
 
Core technologies:
Python (Pandas, SciKit, Plotly), SQL, Git, AWS
 
Core qualifications:
BA degree in a technical/quantitative field, exposure to relational and distributed data stores, knowledge of tools and techniques to allow scaling of scripts and experience analyzing time series data, strong coding skills, familiarity with data access, ability to work independently and as part of a larger team, and a proven ability to solve problems and learn quickly. Candidates should have strong technical depth in at least one Data/Software Engineering area (Big Data infrastructure, scaling analytics with Spark and/or MapReduce, Software Implementation of ETL/Algorithms) and bring an eagerness to learn other areas.

· Learn our current infrastructure and how it is configured and controlled
· Contribute to individual projects with functional components that can be readily re-used

· Deliver/contribute to solutions to various business data storage, monitoring, and interpretation challenges for other business groups (e.g. a database for ‘cradle-to-grave’ tracking of devices and sensors)
WITHIN 6 MONTHS, YOU’LL...
· Enable real-time application of analytics processes against our constantly-expanding set of monitored devices
· Improve and standardize the handoff of advanced prototypes to the Engineering organization for release as standard product features

An Insider's view of SmartSense by Digi

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe in the office is definitely energetic. People are always working in the functional work spaces rather than at their desks or can be found taking a break and participating in our office foosball league. People are excited about the work we're doing and the people we get to work with.

Mariel

Marketing and Event Coordinator

What projects are you most excited about?

One of the largest projects SmartSense has been looking forward to is the new gateway which will be able to work with our entire sensor line. This will mean a much easier use case for all involved. It will also mean to the customer a far less complicated setup. This will help us to streamline our product offering, in which we are excited.
