Intern / Co-op Data & Analytics Mobile Software

Job Description

Zighra is rapidly building out our sensor analytics infrastructure. We are extending our platform to handle billions of new records each day, a petabyte scale repository for analytics, and mobile applications for adaptive behavioral authentication and fraud detection. This platform enables Zighra’s customers to analyze and attribute user behaviours across mobile banking and commerce transactions. We’ve already built out a sensor analytics platform that powers users across 70 countries and 700+ smart device types, to give us access to these large data sets and this is a great opportunity to join as a key member of the team and be at the centre of impactful action.

Job Duties and Responsibilities:

Your main objectives will be the design and implementation of a deep-learning based framework that uses mobile sensor data to perform user-authentication. Apart from the raw sensor data itself, certain high-level aspects related to the user like the walking patterns, phone handling, daily life events, etc. would help identify the real user of the device. Depending on the duration of the internship, you might additionally have the opportunity to gain a first-hand experience of deploying the framework you develop, on a device (mobile phone) and evaluate real-time performance. Zighra transforms mobile sensor data into human-relatable intelligence, and hence this project sits at the heart of its technology.

Desired skills and expertise:

  • Strong background in math and an analytical mindset
  • Passion for solving challenging deep learning problems
  • Ability to quickly qualitatively and quantitatively assess a problem
  • Ability to work productively with team members, identify and resolve tough issues in a collaborative manner
  • Basic knowledge of Python and Tensorflow

Bonus Knowledge and Skills:

  • Being familiar with MySQL, MongoDB
  • Previous research experience in Machine Learning specifically anomaly detection is a big plus
