Data Scientist

New York, United States Full-time

About Oden:

We are on the brink of the next industrial revolution.

Manufacturing has long been an analog world, but this is about to change.  By introducing machines to the digital world, there’s a staggering opportunity for efficiency and production leaps. Oden is driving this revolution. We’re on a mission to eliminate waste in manufacturing.

We have combined industrial hardware, wireless connectivity, and big data architecture into one simple platform so all manufacturers can analyze and optimize their production, from any device. Efficiency, sustainability, and competitiveness are democratized.

Why We Do It:

We like to enable those who make things - to make more, to waste less, to serve their customers, and to thrive in a competitive world. Help enough makers, and the world can give us all the abundance we want for less cost and environmental impact. We’re on the verge of a 4th industrial revolution that begs for absolute efficiency in all factors of life. We plan to deliver that to everyone who makes things.


  • Care about the mission of the product and company.
  • Are never satisfied with the way things are, but excited about the way things could be.
  • Tinker. You embrace different technologies and want to see how they can work together.
  • Are happy to put on steel toe boots and hit the factory floor to work with the production manager.
  • Empathize with customer needs while also looking towards long-term innovation.
  • Live by transparent and scientific thinking. You put in the work to find the best ideas with those around you, without ego.

The Role:

As a Data Scientist on the Product & Engineering Team you will be responsible for building statistical and machine learning models that improve the efficiency of manufacturing using telemetry collected from Oden’s factory cloud. You will be working closely with Oden’s data and product engineers to address customer needs. You will push the envelope on how analytics can provide value to process engineers, operators and materials scientists. This is a crucial role for Oden, and requires someone who will uphold the highest standards of quality, accountability, and attention to detail.


  • Working with the statistical tools that have run manufacturing for over 50 years
  • Developing new models that focus factory attention to current and future production issues
  • Understanding and translating the numerical needs of users to the Product & Engineering Team to help formulate product solutions
  • Mining aggregated data for insights for internal and external stakeholders

Minimum Qualifications:

  • 5 years professional experience as a Data Scientist
  • Experience with Python and SQL
  • Experience with delivering performant statistical models on large data sets
  • Familiarity with process improvement and exploratory techniques (e.g. design of experiments and optimization)
  • Enthusiasm to own projects end-to-end; from experimentation to customer delivery
  • Experience predictive modeling or machine learning on large datasets

Nice to Have:

  • Materials Science, Chemistry, or related physical science expertise

What We Offer You:

  • Measurable impact to the world and the chance to help real people - family businesses, entrepreneurs, engineers.
  • Exposure to many tech disciplines, most of which are rapidly evolving.
  • A bridge between the physical and cloud worlds of tech. Our platform unites big data visualizations with sensors, and heavy industrial equipment.
  • A platform that has the potential to evolve beyond what we have envisioned now.
  • Scientific and transparent thinking, for everyone involved.
  • Backing by world leaders of both industry and tech that will ensure long term growth and development for us.
