Job Description

The Data Scientist

You are responsible for research, design, experimentation, implementation, validating and testing data science models for trademark similarity searching. He/she works in the 'model engineering / data science team' in close cooperation for technical implementation and integration with the 'search technologies' team, for knowledge acquisition and model verification with subject matter experts from trademark operations, for product design and validation with product management.

Research, design and implementation of data science solutions to address trademark similarity and relevancy model challenges, covering the full range of similarity scoring models, underlying NLP-related and patternmatching models, data linkage models and machine learning models.

Solution design, implementation and validation of components/libraries/services for string matching, computational linguistic components on phonetics, inflections, term tagging, semantic/conceptual similarities, etc.

Execution of corpus analysis, statistical data analysis and machine learning to compose knowledge sources for computational matching and data linkage.

Design and execution of machine learning applications for similarity classification, text mining, entity recognition, topic classification, word embedding etc.

Definition and execution of validation cycles with subject matter experts to measure precision/recall and identify areas for improvement.

Analytics of data capturing internal analyst knowledge work (e.g. citations of most relevant marks).Analytics and behavioral segmentation of captured client knowledge work (e.g. screening and citations on online platform)

Information retrieval analysis and implementations; either using and adapting frameworks (e.g. ElasticSearch/Lucene), either design and implementation of core models (e.g. vector space models, LSI/LDA, finite state machine for regular expression matching, etc.) Correctness and Performance testing of data science components and systems. Knowledge representation and knowledge distribution. Support and knowledge distribution of data science applications to internal analysts and/or clients.

Follow-up of data science / technical research domain, aligned with the IT research goals and methodologies.
