Python Data Scientist

Knowledge of various database platforms such as InfluxDB, MySQL etc.

The team Short Term Forecasting develops and operates automated machine learning pipelines that generate forecasts of the load on the grid for the next hours to days, for >1000 locations every 15 minutes. These forecasts are used by System Operations to determine where congestion mitigation needs to be activated, in order to prevent problems on the grid before they even arise. For this team, we are looking for a Python Data Scientist with an affinity for software engineering. They will identify and test the suitability of state-of-the-art AI-techniques to deliver accurate forecasts, tailored to the business processes. Moreover, they will implement these methods in an enterprise-scale IT architecture.
