About Oden:

We are on the brink of the fourth industrial revolution.

Manufacturing has long been an analog world, but this is rapidly changing.  There is a staggering opportunity for improving the efficiency of current manufacturing processes, and enabling the next generation of manufacturing through the effective gathering, analysis, and productionization of data and insights. Oden is driving this revolution. 

We have a combined edge-cloud solution, large-scale data processing architectures, and advanced machine learning algorithms within the Oden platform so all manufacturers can monitor, analyze and optimize their production, across their diverse set of processes. Our goal is to democratize efficiency, sustainability, and competitiveness in the manufacturing domain.

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 for everyone who makes things.

You:

  • Care about the purpose of the product and the company.
  • You are never satisfied with the way things are, but excited about the way things could be.
  • Tinker. You embrace data and different technologies and want to see how they can work together.
  • Empathize with customer needs and enjoy novel ways of posing and solving their problems.
  • Live by transparent and scientific thinking. You put in the work to find the best ideas with those around you.
  • Are happy to put on steel toe boots and hit the factory floor to work with the production manager.

The Role:

As a Data Engineer on the Engineering Team you will be responsible for building and managing our data pipelines for ingesting, capturing, and analyzing different types of data. Our ingestion pipelines handle streaming data: typically real-time metrics that capture various properties of the manufacturing process, context about these metrics provided from external systems, human input, and offline measurements that describe the quality of the resulting manufactured item/s. Our analysis pipelines handle batch and streaming data to support the needs of our statistical and machine learning workflows including pre-processing, data transformations, feature extraction, model training, validation and live model scoring. 

With the Oden infrastructure spread across the cloud and edge, you will be expected to work with distributed systems and our platform teams to manage the scaling and resilience of our pipelines. You will also be exposed to a variety of customer problems ranging from diagnostic to predictive, eventually leading up to closed-loop process control. You will be working closely with Oden’s product engineers to address customer needs. This is a crucial role for Oden, and requires someone who will uphold the highest standards of quality, accountability, and attention to detail.

Responsibilities:

  • Building data pipelines that ingest a variety of manufacturing process metrics and context for in-product data
  • Building data pipelines to support ML and statistical workflows
  • Working with the platform team on managing the data pipelines and their robustness and scalability
  • Working with data scientists and product engineers to develop and deploy solutions to customer problems
  • Innovating to create the next generation of data capabilities, and product features
  • Engaging with the technical community to present results externally, and keep up to date on recent advances

Minimum Qualifications:

  • 5 years professional experience as a Data Engineer or advanced degrees (M.S. or PhD) in Computer Science, Statistics, Computer Engineering or related fields
  • Strong fundamentals with experience in Java, Python, and SQL (bonus: experience in Go)
  • Knowledge of streaming and distributed systems for Big Data with Apache Beam experience required. Experience with Spark, Samza, Kafka, Dataflow, and Apache Flink preferred.
  • Experience with ML workflows for modeling large data sets (bonus: experience with time-series data, with real-time data analysis)
  • Enthusiasm to own projects end-to-end; from experimentation to customer delivery

What We Offer You:

  • Measurable impact on 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, M2M tech, 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.
