Ardent is seeking a Sr. Data Scientist to join our team.  

This is a Remote position.

Position Description:

Ardent is seeking a Senior Data Scientist to join our team. The ideal candidate will possess expertise in various machine learning techniques, particularly in the areas of time series forecasting, reinforcement learning, computer vision, predictive maintenance, NLP, anomaly detection, and domain-specific knowledge in digital twins use cases.

Responsibilities and Duties:

  • Utilize methods such as ARIMA, Prophet, and LSTM neural networks to predict expected sensor values, state changes, and events.
  • Uncover patterns over time to estimate future twin model behavior.
  • Develop algorithms to dynamically determine optimal control policies and simulation parameters to achieve specified goals.
  • Calibrate digital twin responses through reinforcement learning techniques.
  • Analyze visual data from cameras and imagery to evaluate system conditions.
  • Apply skills in object detection and image segmentation to derive visual insights.
  • Employ supervised regression algorithms to estimate time-to-failure and fault likelihood based on equipment age, lifetime parameters, and sensor indicators from the physical twin.
  • Utilize NLP techniques to analyze textual and unstructured data for valuable insights.
  • Develop unsupervised ML models to learn expected data variance and identify outlier sensor readings requiring investigation.
  • Detect early performance issues through anomaly detection methods.
  • Apply domain-specific knowledge in digital twins use cases to optimize modeling and analysis.


  • Bachelor's degree or higher in Computer Science, Data Science, Engineering, or related field.
  • Proven experience in applying machine learning techniques in real-world applications, preferably in the areas of time series forecasting, reinforcement learning, computer vision, predictive maintenance, NLP, and anomaly detection.
  • Proficiency in programming languages such as Python or R.
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills.
  • Excellent communication and teamwork abilities.
  • Experience with relevant tools and libraries (e.g., TensorFlow, PyTorch, scikit-learn, OpenCV).
  • Familiarity with data visualization techniques and tools.
  • Ability to work independently and collaborate effectively in a team environment.
  • Prior experience with digital twins use cases is a plus.

Due to the nature of the work we support, all candidates in consideration for this role must be U.S. Citizens willing to undergo the government issued background investigation process.

Ardent is an equal opportunity employer. We will not discriminate and will take affirmative action measures to ensure against discrimination in employment, recruitment, advertisements for employment, compensation, termination, upgrading, promotions, and other conditions of employment against any employee or job applicant on the bases of race, color, gender, national origin, age, religion, creed, disability, veteran's status, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.
