Job Description
ur vision is to help make ‘better drivers, through smart data’ - we are achieving this through the use of simple smartphones.

We are looking for a Data Scientist co-founder, to help transition from a consumer facing transportation solution to a data science based technology solution for all business, startups and drivers in the transportation sector. 
We are looking to improve the hardest and most important component of the $280 Bn Indian logistics and transportation markets - the humans who drive the vehicles.

Your job as a Data Scientist co-founder would be to design the most efficient algorithms to make actionable sense of the smartphone sensor data we capture, from all drivers. This would include extracting specific information about each driver’s driving behaviour, collated with other sources of data like traffic and weather conditions - to create each driver’s driving profile. 
The end goal would be to group drivers into various grades based on their profiles, and then use the data we have to train them to become better drivers. 
It is a challenging technological problem - which is why we are looking for somebody more than just an employee. 
We need a Data Scientist who will directly contribute to the DNA of the company.

If you think this sounds challenging, exciting and scary enough - get in touch with us.
