Position Summary

Do you have a passion for artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data analysis? Do you yearn to have the impact of your work recognized and valued by more than just your development team? Do you constantly wonder what you could build if only you had access to world-class data sets and computing resources?

If yes, we have just the role for you.

In Deloitte’s Audit and Assurance business, we make businesses and markets better. An audit is more than an obligation; it is an opportunity to see further and deeper into businesses. In our role as independent auditors, we enhance trust in the companies we audit, helping a multitrillion dollar capital markets system function with greater confidence. As we aspire to the very highest standards of audit quality, we deliver deeper insights that can help clients become more effective organizations.

Deloitte’s Audit and Assurance business embraces the promise of artificial intelligence and machine learning, with various forms of AI and ML embedded in the audit technology solutions currently used by our 10,000+ practitioners today.

    • Perform exploratory data analysis to understand relationships and opportunities to influence outcomes, while being able to quickly iterate common feature transformation and model types to find the best predictive models
    • Develop proofs of concept to verify your ideas, including counterfactual explanations for interpretability
  • Collaborate daily with Data Science Managers to solve complex data science problems that emerge within your workstream and others.
  • Collaborate with subject matter experts to obtain an understanding of the underlying business problem, and to define and refine the corresponding technical solution.
  • Be a key contributor to the planning and direction of a project and effectively prioritize goals and objectives
  • Identify opportunities to apply the latest advancements in machine learning and artificial intelligence to build, test, and validate models
  • Make impactful contributions to internal discussions on emerging machine learning methodologies
  • Effectively explain technical concepts
  • Develop and embed automated processes for model validation, deployment, and implementation

Qualifications

Required:

  • 3+ years of industry experience designing, developing, and deploying machine learning models
  • Experience with cloud-based ecosystems (Azure, GCP, AWS)
  • Extensive experience with Python and relevant libraries (NumPy, Pandas, Scikit-learn, etc.)
  • Solid understanding of machine learning model development life cycles
  • Demonstrated understanding of machine learning model performance assessment
  • Experience with version control practices and tools (Git, etc.)
  • Experience using common machine learning and deep learning libraries and techniques, including TensorFlow, PyTorch, and big data platforms
  • Fluency in both structured and unstructured data (SQL, NOSQL)
  • Knowledge of Docker, Jenkins, Kubernetes, and other DevOps tools
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Limited immigration sponsorship may be available
  • Ability to travel 30%, on average, based on the work you do and the clients and industries/sectors you serve

Preferred:

  • Master’s degree or PhD in a quantitative field (computer science, engineering, mathematics, physics, machine learning, statistics)
  • Extensive experience with Microsoft Azure, including certification in machine learning
  • Experience with machine learning pipelines (Azure ML)
  • Experience in an Agile working environment and related project management tools (Jira, Azure DevOps, etc.)
  • Public AI-related projects you have developed available on GitHub

SCAM ALERT

Caution against fraudulent job offers!

We have been informed of instances where jobseekers are led to believe of fictitious job opportunities with Deloitte US (“Deloitte”). In one or more such cases, false promises of actual or potential selection, or initiation or completion of the recruitment formalities appear to have been or are being made. Some jobseekers appear to have been asked to pay money to specified bank accounts of individuals or entities as a condition of their selection for a ‘job’ with Deloitte. These individuals or entities are in no way connected with Deloitte and do not represent or otherwise act on behalf of Deloitte.

We would like to clarify that:

  • At Deloitte, ethics and integrity are fundamental and not negotiable.
  • We are against corruption and neither offer bribes nor accept them, nor induce or permit any other party to make or receive bribes on our behalf.
  • We have not authorized any party or person to collect any money from jobseekers in any form whatsoever for promises of getting jobs in Deloitte.
  • We consider candidates on merit and that we provide an equal opportunity to eligible applicants.
  • No one other than designated Deloitte personnel (e.g., a Deloitte recruiter or Deloitte hiring partner) is permitted to extend any job offer from Deloitte.

Anyone who at any time has made or makes any payment to any party in exchange for promises of job or selection for a job with Deloitte or any matter related to this (including those for ‘registration’, ‘verification’ or ‘security deposit’) or otherwise engages with any such person who has made or makes fraudulent promises or offers, does so (or has done so) entirely at their own risk. Deloitte takes no responsibility or liability for any such unauthorized or fraudulent actions or engagements. We encourage jobseekers to exercise caution.
