Dataiku’s mission is big: to enable all people throughout companies around the world to use data by removing friction surrounding data access, cleaning, modeling, deployment, and more. But it’s not just about technology and processes; at Dataiku, we also believe that people (including our people!) are a critical piece of the equation.

We are looking for a Research Data Science Intern to join Dataiku’s Lab in our Paris office for a 6-month internship. At Dataiku, we build Data Science Studio (DSS) , a collaborative platform for Data Science teams. Though data teams can develop their own prediction algorithms directly in DSS, they often lack the internal expertise for crafting and tuning complex models.

One of the most unique characteristics of our product, Dataiku DSS, is the breadth of its scope and the fact that it caters to both data analysts (with visual analytics) and data scientists (with deep integration in code and libraries, and a web-based IDE).  Automating the Machine Learning model building process from feature engineering to hyperparameter tuning can benefit both beginner and advanced modelers.

This will ultimately free up more time to deeply understand the data and craft more complex domain specific features. We are working to incorporate the newest techniques to enhance the automated capabilities of our visual Machine Learning solution. This encompasses many research topics such as automatic feature engineering and feature selection as well as intelligent hyperparameter search.

Your responsibilities will be:
* Get familiar with the subject and its vast literature
* Launch extensive benchmarking of various ML techniques
* Evaluate which techniques are the most performant and robust for diverse data

You are our ideal candidate if:
* You are eager to get your hands dirty and dive into coding
* You know that bagging and boosting trees is not about gardening
* You know that dropout is not about leaving school at age 16.

Ideal technical skills:
* Good understanding of parametric machine learning algorithms and their optimisation
* Good experience with Python development ; alternatively experience with an object-oriented language such as Java or Scala

To fulfill its mission, Dataiku is growing fast (having just closed a $101 million Series C round in December 2018 and looking to double in 2019), but still maintains a startup spirit. Dataiku serves its global customer base from its headquarters in New York City as well as offices in Paris, London, Munich, Singapore, and Sydney. Each of our offices has a unique culture, but underpinning local nuances, we always value curiosity, collaboration, and can-do attitudes.
