Boeing Vancouver houses an eclectic group of passionate data scientists who help customers by making sense out

of big, complex systems in the world of aviation. We combine deep scientific thinking, mathematical prowess and

analytics technology with creativity and detective work to uncover rare insights hidden within the data. We harness

practical knowledge of engineering, business, and aviation to build customer solutions. Together, we deliver the power of

understanding to change the world above and on the ground.

 

We are looking for skilled, inquisitive analysts to bring the fast-growing, ever-evolving power of data science to aviation

and aerospace. As a Boeing data scientist, you will have to combine the skills of a developer and a detective, drawing

on a wide palette of mathematics, statistics, machine learning, and programming techniques to unravel mysteries too

subtle for the naked eye. You will get to work closely with our customers, building their trust, studying their problems and

business needs, and you will blend artistry with science to visualize and explain your findings and stories. We want you to

invent new ways of doing things, and to contribute your own specialties to problem-solving teams of diverse backgrounds.

We want you to help us craft and launch leading-edge operational solutions around the world.

Above all, we are seeking someone who will value and champion our culture of learning, trust, and relentless collaborative

energy. We love breathing new science into the industry, and we love sharing the journey. We believe that thirst for

knowledge and having fun go hand-in-hand. Does this sound like you? Come build Vancouver’s local data science

community with us and make a global impact.

 

ROLE SUMMARY

 

We want to hear from you if:

 

1. You are a technical jack-of-all-trades and master of one – uncommonly familiar with a wide array of data analytic

techniques, applications, and programming languages; you know the methods, their strengths and weaknesses, and how

to use the right tool for the job. But more than that, you possess uncommon or exceptional proficiency in at least one

technical specialty (e.g. programming languages, statistical techniques, machine-learning analytics, web development,

etc.)

 

2. You are a business thinker – project-minded, down-to-earth and strategic. You focus on customers, their viewpoints

and real-world priorities. You balance pragmatic choices, and you appreciate the robust elegance in the path of least

resistance to a solution. And you stay always on the lookout for new problems and new possibilities for growth.

 

3. You love learning – You don’t rest on your laurels, and you enjoy honing your mind. You have diverse interests; you

have fun learning new ideas, growing your skills and sharing the experience with others.

 

4. You communicate and collaborate effectively– you know how to collaborate in diverse teams both large and small. You

can switch confidently between following and leading as circumstances dictate. You are respectful, honest, and you strive

to understand as much as to be understood.
