Research Scientist

Machines Talk, We Listen. We are all surrounded by machines and rely on them in everything we do - from the buildings in which we live and work, the goods that we consume, to the power and running water that we use. There are significant cost and effort that goes into designing, manufacturing, installing and maintaining the machines that enable and support our daily lives. We are on a mission to make machines more reliable and reduce their impact on the environment.

Augury is making machines more reliable by combining two key shifts in the industry: artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things. The intersection of these trends allows Augury to provide machines with a mechanical nervous system and the awareness to optimize their own health, thereby accelerating human productivity and safety.

As Research Scientist, you will lead bleeding-edge research projects to solve real-world problems. You will have a direct impact on innovating Augury’s core technology. You will focus on state of art sensing data around acoustic emission and electromagnetic fields, while applying machine learning and signal process algorithms to develop Augury’s next generation solution for the industrial market.

A Day In Your Life

Apply your scientific knowledge and creativity to achieve real-world impact, with the improvement of machine health, industrial process performance, customer insights, and efficiency improvement suggestions.

  • Improve Augury’s capabilities in detecting and classifying changes to machine health by applying your knowledge in data analysis, signal processing, supervised and unsupervised machine learning, deep learning methods, and  time-series anomaly detection.
  • Full ownership of the entire algorithmic life-cycle including problem learning, discovery, data analytics, prototyping of new ideas, and implementing algorithms in a production environment.
  • Lead the IP activities including patents, grants, and academic affairs 
  • Lead advanced research project for our next generation products
  • Work with Augury’s unique data recorded by novel sensors on a variety of machines

What You Bring

  • Your playground: You are a Scientist with a proven record in scientific research and algorithms development. You love taking algo research to production. You bring Data Science and DSP skills, and programming skills (preferably in python). You are familiar with Agile and seek challenges and enjoy the fast feedback loop.
