Job Role: Data Engineer

Every functional area, in every industry, is on an AI Journey. The power of machine learning to dramatically improve company key performance indicators is being proven every day. But, although we feel every large organisation is on an AI journey, the path to value is unclear.

There are three key barriers to deploying AI and machine learning at scale:

Building data pipelines that feed both the development and deployment of machine learning models

Improving consistency, reducing effort and expanding the ability of data scientists to address the growing range of business problems from prediction to prescription

Building out the necessary infrastructure to support 100s of machine learning models in production, including the necessary governance and compliance patterns

At Cognizant we are proud to be helping our clients on their journey to AI at scale. We’ve built practices that bring together the best talent to address these key barriers, and have built unique capability to complement our people:

Our Adaptive Data Foundation brings together our accelerators, partnerships and consulting approach to help clients solve the increasing demands for data

Our Evolutionary AI technology and patents is reducing the effort required to develop deep learning and other sophisticated models. It’s particularly adept at addressing prescription problems, from marketing to next best action to supply chain

Our architecture frameworks help clients navigate technology choices throughout the AI process. As well as building capability in close collaboration with the leading cloud providers, we are working with startups that address the critical engineering challenges that machine learning brings

Client demand has meant that we are growing these practices at an unprecedented rate. We are looking for people that can bring existing strengths in data engineering and data science but we want to hire people that share our vision and want to grow their own skills across the problem space.
