Ohne die vielen Berufe im Bereich Transport wäre vieles in der Schweiz heute unmöglich. Es sind eine gute Logistik sowie Fahrer, die es etwa möglich machen, dass Waren von A nach B kommen und dann im Supermarkt stehen. Als Chauffeur bei einer Transport-Firma sorgt man dafür, dass Güter sicher ihren Weg zurücklegen. Für Stellen im Bereich Transport ist meist keine spezifische Ausbildung nötig und die Branche steht Quereinsteigern offen. Gesucht wird in Stellenangeboten aber meist nach Personen, die belastbar sind und auch ungewöhnliche Arbeitszeiten nicht scheuen. Immer wieder schreiben auch Verkehrsbetriebe Jobs im Transport aus und suchen Chauffeure für Linienbusse oder Trams.
We are looking for a smart and passionate Transport Modelling Specialist with an interest in statistical data science and machine learning to join our team in Zurich.
In this role you are a member of the exceptional Data Science team of Teralytics, consisting of specialists in machine learning, statistics and computer science. You will be the resident expert in Transport Modeling, enriching our location based analytics expertise with a new angle, with the end goal of understanding human mobility based on massive amounts of location data on a global scale.
Your responsibilities will include:
Designing and integrating models to determine transport modes and travel behavior from cellular data with a privacy-first approach
Pushing the domain boundaries by joining transport modeling with unprecedentedly big location data
Collaborating with the team to create production-level algorithms enabling us to extract insights on human mobility from mobility data of up to hundreds of millions of people
Following research and customer projects from beginning to end, providing transport know-how internally and externally
Validating models using diverse sources of ground truth
MSc or PhD in a relevant field and 2+ years of relevant professional experience
You have extensive experience in applied transport modelling, including expertise in modeling modal split travel behavior, using Origin-Destination-Matrices and transport modeling software
You know at least one programming language (e.g. Java, Scala, Matlab, R, Python)
You have experience working with data and are excited to solve problems in a data-driven way
You have an interest in machine learning used in interesting ways and you think outside the box
Your passion is to improve human mobility and transport systems
You enjoy working closely with other people in a highly diverse and multicultural environment
Experience with GIS Software
Experience working with GPS, WiFi or cellular data to understand human mobility
Knowledge of statistics, including multivariate statistics, spatio-temporal statistics, and data assimilation
Experience with transportation simulation models like MATSim or SUMO
Proficiency in programming and knowledge of the basics of Computer Science
Competent Linux/Mac user and comfortable with the command line
During your first 30 days you will learn about the data and algorithms of Teralytics, the customers and the challenges we help them with. You will get an understanding of our technology platform and the ways we process data while protecting people’s privacy.
90 days after joining the company, you will be in the midst of an implementation project for a new approach to model modes of transport. You will already have picked up new skills in data science and software engineering by working closely with experts in the field.
Half a year into the job, you’re an expert on Teralytics algorithms and have enabled us to serve our customers in new ways with state-of-the-art approaches. As the company continues to evolve, so will your role.
Teralytics is on a mission to change how the world moves.
Until now, cities and mobility services have been designed based on assumptions of how officials and companies expect people to move. But, they aren’t taking everyone’s journey into consideration. As a result, for many, mobility is limited. Not just physically, but socially and economically. It’s stopping people from reaching their full potential.
Teralytics partners with mobile network operators to solve this problem with the most accurate indicator of people’s movement – their mobile devices. It’s the one thing everyone has with them at all times. And the cell towers receiving their signals don’t discriminate based on device model or apps. Due to its complexity and scale, mobile network data has been nearly impossible to understand or utilize. That’s why we’ve pioneered a way to translate it into actionable insights. For the first time we’ve unlocked truly inclusive data on people’s journeys.
Teralytics is backed by leading investors in the mobility and transport space, including Robert Bosch Venture Capital and Deutsche Bahn Digital Ventures, as well as high-profile VC funds, such as Atomico and Lakestar, and we are continuing to grow across the world. Whether at our headquarters in Zurich or in our offices in New York and Singapore, our people are at the core of our mission to shape the future of mobility.
What we offer
We offer the chance to be part of an exciting and ambitious start-up that puts its people at the heart of its business. Be part of a diverse, international, cross-disciplinary team of highly motivated, hands-on experts that tackle unique challenges with a positive spirit and lots of fun.
