Be aware that LinkedIn profiles are not necessarily visible to everyone, even if you think it's public, especially if people are logged in to LinkedIn.

For instance, I'm usually logged in to LinkedIn, and your LinkedIn profile may be blocked or only partially visible because we're not "connected" enough.

A great way to check the visibility of your own profile is to view it in an incognito window.

Location: Boston, MA

Remote: OK (I even have probably-suitable computers already if Linux is OK for the job).

Willing to relocate: Not now, but it is possible in mid-to-late 2015 depending on the destination. It is not possible for me to relocate until that time.

Technologies: I separate them into computation and statistics/math below.

Computational: Python and many associated scientific and data technologies, Haskell, some C/C++, MySQL, Postgres, MSSQL, Vertica, Riak, Redis, relational database theory and algorithms, git, mercurial, various flavors of Linux, experience with (but strong dislike of) the following: MATLAB, Stata, SAS, Excel, development on Windows. I care a lot about software best practices and sound-but-not-overkill software architecture choices.

Statistics/Math: Advanced degrees in applied math (Brown) and engineering (Harvard), with heavy focus on machine learning, Bayesian statistics, Monte Carlo and sampling-based strategies in scientific computing (MCMC, hybrid Monte Carlo, simulated annealing), GPU programming, distributed computing with 0MQ and MPI, limited experience with map reduce paradigm. I've also done three years of Ph.D. coursework in probability theory, econometrics, Bayesian statistics, real analysis, and statistical modeling. I left a Ph.D. program early to pursue more immediate applied work instead of academia. I have experience with, but a strong dislike of, classical Frequentist / hypothesis-testing methods, especially in econometrics (things like panel data analysis, Fama MacBeth Regression, Seemingly Unrelated Regression, etc.). I feel strongly that setting up automated frameworks to crank out datamined hypotheses that satisfy arbitrary statistical significance levels is shoddy, bad work that I am unable to feel proud of, and thus I can't feel happy in any job that requires this kind of statistical work. I am happy, however, to work extra hard in those kinds of jobs to perform the same sorts of analysis using more robust Bayesian and machine learning methods to support the solutions to the same business problems in a better way that I am capable of feeling proud of when I am able to work hard and do it well. I am also happy to share lots of academic and pragmatic resources outlining the overwhelming argument for why those sorts of frameworks are unacceptably bad for statistical practice.

Resume: please ask by email

Email: spearsem a t g m a i l

About: I am looking for work doing machine learning to solve business problems. I have experience as a research analyst at a quantitative equity asset management firm, a radar data engineer at a defense lab, and also developing open source analytics tools for clients at a technology consulting start-up. I have done graduate work in machine learning, computer vision, and artificial intelligence. I enjoy working with data infrastructure technologies and I really love software craftsmanship. My preferred languages are Python and Haskell, but as long as high quality supporting infrastructure is available (Linux, distributed version control) I enjoy working in any language and learning new technologies.

I am looking to avoid jobs that are centrally focused on the stewardship and dev-ops aspects of big data, such as database curation and administration, unstructured software tool making for servicing ad hoc analytics requests, and similar activities. I struggle with the current job market because many positions that purport to be focused on "data science" are really solely data stewardship -- and sometimes even worse when they also require focusing on devops technologies; in those cases it's more like being a "data secretary" than a data scientist and these jobs don't allow for much autonomy, creativity, or genuine use of math and statistics.

I am looking for roles where I will be primarily responsible for modeling, forecasting, and rendering computation of business solutions efficient and parsimonious. To the extent that database admin or ad hoc software dev are side tasks that I do occasionally in the service of major modeling tasks, I am happy to do them and enjoy it. But when a job becomes centrally focused on only the "stewardship" and "operations" aspects of data, lacking any need for creative mathematical and statistical modeling choices, it becomes a job that is not acceptable for me.

I am very skeptical about joining start-ups after a very bad working experience at one, and several unpleasant late-stage interviews/offer negotiations with start-ups. I won't categorically rule out the possibility, but I find most investors and founders expect recruits to just intrinsically feel motivated to take the job, rather than actually attempting to put numbers on the risks and suss out whether a start-up offer is truly quantitatively compelling. I'm a skeptical person: that's just my temperament. It's nothing personal, but I won't feel invested in any business idea unless it is quantitatively justified according to features of the job itself and the job offer.

Note: I don't have much available at Github due to pretty draconian IP rules at my last two jobs, but here is a link to my careers page at StackOverflow: < http://careers.stackoverflow.com/ely > and from there you can see Q&A from my SO account and accounts at the math and statistics sites too.

  Location: Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy

Video surveillance set of technologies.

Wireless: Managed a WISP, configuring antennas, HDSL Cisco and 3Com Routers

I have a degree in Informatic Science and over 10 years of Information Communication Technology experience. I always had a deep passion in technology and security, with a focus on wired and wireless networks and mobile device's technology. Throughout my professional life, I always accepted and enjoyed challenges with a heavy grade of difficulties, solving and studying it by myself or joining some security or research group. My experience forged and made me enthusiast in problem solving.

I worked as network administrator, analyst and architect for a wireless provider. This job experience included also customer care and telephonic helpdesk with the customers I followed. I also increased my experience background adding Video Surveillance skills, acquiring knowledge about common issues in that field, and understanding what the customer is looking for.

My last job experience was exactly what I was looking for and what I periodically look for: challenge. So I worked for a company which operates in the ICT field, projecting an encrypted system layout and coding its tools and routines with a main focus on security. For that job, I developed an encryption engine for an highly increased security level that's unique for each devices where this encryption system is running. Obviously it also contains anti-reversing tricks, anti-debugger traps and obfuscation techniques. Actually I'm following 2 companies as DevOps: one is a CMS Web company, the other one is developing a M2M system with cloud support: almost daily I have to do with code versioning, installations and deployments, disaster recovery, databases, virtualization, problem solving and troubleshooting.

I also worked on my own creating a GPS tracking platform which supports Android and Symbian smartphones and a VoIP encryption platform, compatible with all OS and almost all smartphones and tablets.

I relish new challenges in my professional life: I believe meeting new peoples' experiences is a great way to learn. Just a few infos about me: I live in Sardinia (Italy), I'm Italian mother tongue and I also speak a fluent English on a daily basis.

My mission is to hack, no matter what. Hire me, before I "hire" you.

I like your attitude

That's what keeps me alive

  Location: Southern California (two hours East of San Diego, in Imperial County)
  Remote: (Yes and No) - 
  Yes, because I think it would be interesting to be able to work fully remotely and manage my own times/days of work and still earn good money doing so.
  No, because I also feel like working remotely might not allow me to learn as much from my team (due to all of the small interactions that occur within a normal work environment) and it might also make me more expendable (since where I currently live there's a severe lack of tech jobs, unless there was another remote opportunity that immediately arose I could be out of a job for quite a while).
  Willing to relocate:
  Yes, of course I would relocate willingly for the right opportunity without hesitation, though particularly for the Bay Area my primary concern would be the much more expensive housing situation there and the potential risk that could cause for my family if we were to move (this concern primarily arises out of my being used to paying $700 for rent each month compared to $2000+).
  My first love (though some employers may roll their eyes at this) has been PHP and is the language I'm most comfortable with and I'm also very comfortable working with databases and writing complex queries (MySQL / Oracle).
  Of course, working with web technologies I have quite a bit of experience working with the other basic tools of the web: HTML, CSS and JavaScript.
  Additionally, I've extracted data and integrated with a number of outside services, worked with various types of APIs (SOAP / RESTful Web Services) and have also used Microsoft's PowerShell for scripting out tasks.
  I'm familiar with Linux and have used Apple computers in the past, though I still gravitate towards using a Windows PC (which I understand may cause some of the die-hard Mac users to roll their eyes at me too ;-) and have also been exploring delving into languages I've never had to use for my current workplace, but which I feel would be useful to me and make me more employable with tech companies: NodeJS, Ruby/Rails, C, C#, and Java.
  Basically though, I'm really willing to learn anything...what I don't have right now is good teachers for really learning the stuff I don't know (and I'm not able to focus much of my current work week on learning new languages that are non-essential to current work, even though I find them interesting).
  I've primarily worked my entire professional career at a higher education institution, working my way up from Webmaster to the manager of the Online Services Department (even though I'm still the only person handling online services for the college).
  During this time I've re-architected our entire website, built numerous web applications handling specific pain points (creating an online Faculty / Staff Directory, a Password Reset Tool, a centralized Syllabi Repository and Online Schedule, a management system for a complicated Program Review process, a Student Portal, full provisioning of student email accounts with Office 365, migration of staff emails to Office 365, automation and repository of Notice of Employment documents for employees, numerous provisioning/syncing integrations for outside systems such as Blackboard, etc.). To put it simply...I've done quite a lot.
  Since there's a lack of experts in my field locally, I've also had the opportunity to teach a few classes here as well.
  What I'm looking for in a potential employer:
  I would love to find a workplace that will provide me a lot more opportunities to solve problems worth solving and learn new programming languages and allow me to continue building my skills as a software writer.
  A job that would provide me lots of freedom to get things done, while also providing resources (teammates) to continually learn from and ask questions.
  A job that I don't have to worry about losing anytime soon so I can have that feeling of security (one of the big pluses of working for a school is that there is strong job security).
  A workplace where my opinion will be respected and where I can also learn and grow my leadership skills.
  A workplace where I can make a big impact.
  Good medical and retirement benefits and a salary that allows me to live with the same comfort I'm currently able to have would also be strongly factored into my decision too.

NOTE: Even if you're not sure if I would be a good fit for you, I would still love to talk and will happily answer all emails that are sent to me so feel free to reach out!
