Data Scientist - AI / ML at Balbix
San Jose, California, United States
🇺🇸 (Posted Jul 8 2018)
About the company
At Balbix we build a breach risk dashboard for cybersecurity. Think of us as preventative healthcare for enterprise networks whose vitals we continuously discover, monitor and quantify. Specifically, we model the risk carried by hundreds of attack vectors (e.g. likelihood of breach from phishing), contextualize them to physical assets in the enterprise (e.g. firewalls, laptops, etc.), and prioritize these assets by their relative impact of breach (e.g. active directory servers are more important than display devices). The outcome is a clickable, searchable, and human readable risk dashboard that is relevant, engaging and easy on the eyes.
DATA SCIENCE AT BALBIX
Data Science at Balbix is embedded into engineering and product functions. We participate in an agile software development cycle with sensors, backend and frontend engineers on a daily basis, provide feedback to product and design teams, and also make time for longer term strategic machine learning projects.
ABOUT THIS ROLE
As a data scientist you will get to play with TB-scale data (and growing) from our proprietary sensors (network scanners, traffic monitors, connectors) as well as commercial and openly available threat feeds. With a razor-sharp product focus, you will get to drive a dozen different machine learning problems leveraging deep natural language processing, probabilistic graphical models, network science, search, recommendation systems, and computer vision. In each area, we draw boldly from the latest in machine learning research but are also unafraid to limit ourselves to expert systems or linear regression if the situation demands it.
We stretch ourselves to be generalists, caring as much about storytelling with data, as about bleeding edge algorithms, or scalable model training and deployment. Going forward, we are keen to build a data science culture with equal parts emphasis on knowing our raw data, grokking security first principles, caring about customer needs, explaining our model predictions, deploying them at scale, communicating our work across the company, and adapting the latest advances from arXiv and NIPS.
We look out for each other, enjoy each others’ company, and keep an open channel of communication about all things data and non-data.
