Senior Data Scientist at Starship
Tallinn, EE
Starship Technologies is developing the future of delivery – a network of robots ready to serve you anytime, anywhere
 
At Starship, we are redefining how goods flow through the places in which we live. We see a future where a new generation of convenience services become available to everyone – made possible by our constellation of autonomous neighbourhood robots.
 
We have entered commercial pilots with hundreds of robots driving along sidewalks across the United States and four countries in Europe. Soon there will be thousands (if not millions) of robots around the world.
 
We are seeking a senior data scientist, who will help to ensure the robot is a safe actor in whatever environment it is driving in and help us better understand the different factors that influence safety. You will have the opportunity to mould the direction this area of development will be heading in and the work will have a substantial effect on the future decisions of the company.
 
Safety of autonomous vehicles is a new and exciting research field – you will be expected to contribute to the theoretical understanding of this area of research, as well as making practical contributions to the way we assess the safety of our robot operations.
