  • Experience with Python, Pandas, Numpy, Scikit-learn, Keras/Tensorflow, and other data science framework
  • Basic knowledge of Python-based visualization libraries (e.g. Dash, Bokeh, or similar)
  • Applied experience with developing machine learning applications to solve real-world problems
  • Comfortable with mathematical concepts behind machine learning
  • Hands-on experience with database queries and handling big amounts of data
  • Ability and willingness to work independently
  • Reinforcement learning and risk estimation skills are a bonus
