Science at 84.51°

The science department has three different types of roles: research scientist, scientific developer and operational scientist.

What an 84.51° Research Scientist does

Research scientists create solutions in statistical machine learning, temporal and longitudinal analyses, classification and clustering, forecasting and optimization. In other words, they solve novel optimization and prediction problems, which can include things like pricing, sales demand forecasting, targeting and personalization.

What they're good at

Our research scientists have demonstrated an ability to conduct independent, high-quality research. They often have a PhD in computer science, computer engineering, mathematics, statistics, operations research or other related fields.

Scientific Developer

The scientific developers create efficient software implementations of complex algorithms. They also integrate all aspects of algorithms to provide solutions that scale to huge, diverse data sets.

What an 84.51° Operational Scientist does

This team supports the deployment of forecasting, supply chain, customer engagement and price and promotion optimization solutions. They’re also responsible for model tuning, trouble-shooting and systems administration.

What they're good at

If you’re an operational scientist, you likely have a degree in computer science, computer engineering, statistics or a related subject. You have a working knowledge of all aspects of data and computing systems — collection, integration, and transfer methods.
