  4. Experience with handling related but disparate datasets that might need rigorous preprocessing prior to analysis
  5. Experience with version control, documentation and software development practices
  6. Willing to engage in rigorous code reviews and give/receive friendly, constructive criticism for the sake of creating high-quality software


  1. Build solutions that directly impact and augment adaptations for Climate Change
  2. Get mentored and work with a team of fun and experienced engineers in machine learning for Earth Observations
  3. Develop crucial software engineering skills for working in distributed and agile data science teams
