Remote | Full Time
A Data Scientist is required to join Pastoral's Artificial Intelligence (AI) team developing machine and deep learning activities focused on creating high-resolution grazing pattern maps, including soil moisture and plant identification from GNSS-R and SAR data.
You will work with the Pastoral engineering team to discover and propose remote satellite data sources, working across the various disciplines of SAR and bistatic radar remote sensing analysis, SAR processing, SAR retrieval algorithm development, and measurement calibration and validation.
You will develop the remote sensing algorithms, statistics, analytics, machine learning, forecasting and optimisation to turn SAR measurements of the Earth surface into valuable products for Precision Livestock Farming (PLF) in Uzbekistan and, eventually, other locations. You will have the responsibility to ensure that we deliver high-quality, low-latency Earth remote sensing products and the freedom to pursue novel, high-impact applications. And instead of your ideas and efforts sitting on a shelf or hidden in an academic journal, you will see and experience them working in space within months.
This role is fully remote. We hire in most countries.
Pastoral is the world's first Precision Livestock Farming platform inclusive to all of the world's farmers. We partner closely with our clients to make that future inclusive of people, planet and profit.
We do this through a deep focus on empathy, optimism, and applying creativity as a complement to analytical reasoning. This focus enables us to work through ambiguity with confidence—designing and promoting new products, services, experiences, and new ventures that solve people's unmet needs and allow our clients to adopt new mindsets, capabilities, and ways of working.
We are an equal opportunity employer and do not tolerate discrimination of any kind.
