Data Science Specialist

Company: Syntouch Inc.
Location: Glendale
Posted on: January 12, 2022

Job Description:

We have an immediate full-time position for a data scientist who wants to stand out and own a very exciting, challenging, rewarding opportunity.

Our mission is to be the gold-standard solution provider for guiding manufacturers on achieving optimal product tactile feel (haptics). How a product feels to the touch triggers strong emotional responses that powerfully influence consumers decisions to sample or purchase products.

Our haptics-assessment solutions start with our Toccare Haptics Measurement System, a one-of-a-kind instrument that biomimetically quantifies the 15 dimensions of tactile perception for any material. If the human finger can feel it, the Toccare system can measure it.

SynTouch and our customers use Toccare data to help understand consumer preferences, and guide product design, development, manufacturing and marketing. We have a proven track record assessing the haptics of thousands of unique products and materials sold by some of the best known global brands in the consumer packaged goods, textiles, automotive, consumer electronics, cosmetics and chemical industries. Weve also worked with a wide range of unusual products such as contact lenses, artificial aortas, and baseballs.

This Position Has Two Related Areas Of Responsibility

  • Assess customers materials and products. Manage projects from start to finish, including working with customers to specify the study objective and scope, analyzing and interpreting data, and presenting results to customers. This often includes correlating Toccare data with other relevant data such as materials physical properties, production and marketing parameters, human opinion, and multi-sensory effects. Requires continuous experimentation with novel analytics, modeling and visualization techniques looking to improve both the value we provide to our customers and our productivity.
  • Help invent our next generation of software solutions. Guided by what we learn from conducting assessments for our customers, help define the functionality of our next generation of software products. Our growth is predicated on offering new algorithmic, data-driven solutions that simplify the use of our current analytics and visualization tools, augment or replace human opinion, predict feel before prototyping or manufacturing, and give consumers a sense of the feel of products purchased online. Requires an innovative, creative mind that knows how to apply advanced machine-learning and data-analysis methods.
    • Required: Autonomous self-starter who will be part of a close-knit, highly intelligent team that includes our director of customer solutions, our software architect, and our CEO.
    • Required: 5+ years in technical fields related to the position, with experience in statistical analysis, data visualization, machine learning and data management.
    • Required: Excellent written and oral communication skills.
    • Desirable but not required: Knowledge of human perception and psychophysics.
