Overview

The mission of the enterprise architecture data science practice is data actualization: the realization of the full potential of information our data contains to help drive revenue and improve operational efficiencies/cost savings.

As a data scientist at Mastercard your focus will be to design and improve a new breed of AI-driven products. We need you to bring analytical rigor and expertise in data science methods to the challenges we face everyday using petabytes of data to improve Mastercard’s products and services.

First and foremost we are part of an engineering organization. As part of enterprise architecture data scientists routinely work on massively scalable deployments that impact millions of merchants and consumers. In our organization we improve company performance by extracting information from our data with the use of sophisticated mathematical and statistical techniques including AI, machine learning, time-series forecasting, and collaborative filtering. We also enable allied teams across the company do the same by evaluating emerging AI technologies for possible inclusion in our data science environment.

We are looking for an experienced data scientist/machine learning engineer who is curious, loves to learn, and eager to work in a collaborative environment. The person in this role will work closely with our data scientists and enterprise architects to both help solve business problems with the use of AI and enable other data science teams to do the same.
