The Job

TenPoint7 is looking to hire a Lead Data Scientist in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. As a Lead Data Scientist, you will have the awesome opportunity to influence the growth of a high-energy US-based company whose mission is to make data science adoption easy for companies. You will get to work with our global customers solving their tough and varied business use cases. Another cool part is you will get to grow and nurture a team of data scientists at our DreamPlex office in HCMC. And that’s not it. You will also get the added unique opportunity to have your own R&D team collaborating closely with TenPoint7 sponsored students enrolled in the Master’s of Data Analytics program at John von Neumann Institute (JVN) (Vietnam National University, HCMC), our academic partner.

Compensation and benefits are competitive with occasional travel to the US for team meet-ups and training.

What you will do as a Lead DS:

  • Grow and lead a team of data scientists for our HCMC team.
  • Take the lead to design, build and deliver data science prototypes that solve a variety of use cases for our customers. These prototypes can range from predicting customer churn to improving revenue prediction.
  • Be a hands-on team player that loves to work collaboratively with project management and data engineering team members on prototype projects.
  • Work with TenPoint7 product leadership to identify which prototypes can be converted and scaled into re-usable TenPoint7 applications that can be deployed on TenPoint7 Cloud, our platform.
  • Be responsible and document how your prototype models solve the business problem so that your analyses can be repeatable and interpretable to others.
  • Assist in the sales process by interacting with global prospects, analyzing their business problems and determining how TenPoint7 can help them overcome those challenges using data science.
  • Collaborate very closely with our Data Engineering teams in HCMC and Seattle to deploy your ML prototypes and applications on TenPoint7 Cloud.
  • Provide mentorship to JVN Data Analytics students through knowledge sharing sessions and assigning relevant research activities and project tasks.
