Ornarose Inc. wishes to contract with one or two Research Software Developers based in the Chicago (Illinois) or Northern New Jersey area. This is a medium-term project (3 to 4 month) with an SBIR-supported startup company. Developer(s) will be responsible for implementation and testing of algorithms for fitting and applying novel statistical models.

  • Position 2: M.S. or advanced degree in statistics, or equivalent knowledge of the major principles and modeling techniques used by statisticians. 2+ years software development experience in statistics, machine learning, data mining, or related technology.
Remaining requirements apply to both positions:

  • 5+ years professional software development experience,
  • Experience with designing and running large computational experiments, ideally in machine learning, statistics, or data mining, is highly desirable. Experience with text processing and/or combinatorial/mixed optimization is also of interest.
  • Proficiency in C. C++ and Perl proficiency is desirable.
  • Experience with Unix/Linux is desirable.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills in English. Demonstrated ability to meet deadlines and communicate effectively when working from home. Able to meet weekly with project manager in one of Northern New Jersey or Chicago, IL.
Qualified candidates should send a resume in ASCII or PDF to job2003a@ornarose.com. The candidate must be eligible to work legally in the United States throughout 2003.
