What you bring:
  • Expertise in a domain of probabilistic machine learning
  • Expertise in statistics, especially Bayesian methods

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Collaboration between functional groups is key to the Logistics team's success at Invitae.

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Creativity requires a break from the routine and the screen. Here at Archer the team gets creative through walks to the food trucks, lunch runs, climbing gym sessions or a few end of the week craft brews. Some of our best algorithms were developed or refined on the climbing gym mat.
