Do you want to help eliminate barriers between ideas and business outcomes? We want you to bring your unique experiences and creative ideas to the table. CA Technologies provides software and solutions that help our customers to develop, manage, and secure complex IT environments to increase productivity and enhance competitiveness in their businesses. It’s our aim to encourage global collaboration and results-oriented innovation, while supporting and developing our talented people and our communities. CA Technologies will empower you to drive authentic success, for both the business and yourself in the application economy.

At CA Technologies’ R&D Innovation Center in Boulder, Colorado, we build products like CA Agile Central, formerly known as Rally. Our product enables companies to become modern software factories, morphing from slow-moving bureaucracies into places where trust, innovation, and rapid response to changing customer demands are the norm. We think that radically transforming the way software is built and delivered is pretty exciting, and we’re looking for data scientists who want to join the fun.

As an Agile Central data scientist at CA Technologies, you will work with our product, engineering, user experience, and sales teams to draw insights from product usage and customer data. Your discoveries will inform:

  • Customer-facing features such as predictive analytics, anomaly detection, and sentiment analysis that enable our customers to be more successful with their agile efforts.

  • Product decisions based on feature adoption and usage, along with customer feedback.

  • Opportunities for improving the performance of Agile Central.

  • What would you be doing?*

  • Building product features that use customer behavior and agile work product data (stories, defects, epics) to surface actionable insights that help customers use Agile Central more effectively, assist them with predictions and forecasts, and ultimately become better at the whole “concept to cash” cycle of product development.

  • Collaborating with stakeholders spanning all aspects of our business, exploring and analyzing performance and usage metrics of SaaS services, using Python, R, Splunk, and Spark, and explaining the resulting insights.

  • Helping maintain and improve the Kafka-based infrastructure that collects usage and performance data, summarizes and warehouses it, and makes it consumable using platforms like Splunk and Shiny.

  • What makes you a good fit?*

The main things we’re searching for are talent and passion. However, experience in certain areas could help you hit the ground running, so here’s our attempt at narrowing things down a bit:

  • You are proficient in at least one programming language, preferably Python or R. We also use Scala, Clojure, and Ruby, so experience in any of those is a bonus.

  • You have professional experience developing predictive models, using machine learning, that support customer-facing features. If the product you worked on was a multi-tenant SaaS (software as a service) product, that’s even better.

  • You’re fluent in SQL.

  • You have a solid understanding of statistical concepts.

  • You’re able to perform sampling, clustering, and classification on large data sets.

  • You have used several of the following tools and technologies: Jupyter notebooks, Shiny, Splunk, Kafka, R/dpylr, Apache Spark, Amazon web services, Docker

  • You have used D3 or other visualization frameworks to visualize complex data sets in new and creative ways.

  • You have worked with large data sets, on the order of many terabytes, with tens of millions of new rows added per day.

  • Some of the reasons our engineers love it here:*

  • Hackathons: Unleash your creativity with regular opportunities to prototype your ideas with whatever cool new tech interests you, and present it to the rest of the business. Many hackathons have become full-fledged parts of our products.

  • A Learning Environment: Our experiment-rich culture has us evolving our methodology and tools constantly. We encourage people to attend and present at conferences and meetups.

  • Collaboration: Our teams work closely together in agile style, enabling us to learn from each other rather than getting trapped in silos.

  • Influence: Every team member is empowered and encouraged to make things better - the product, the technology, the processes, and the culture.

  • Location: With a thriving tech scene, 300 days of sunshine, 300 miles of dedicated bikeways, and an abundance of outdoor adventure opportunities, Boulder is an amazing place to live. And it gives CA the opportunity to pay for a Boulder/Denver ski day every year.

  • Work/life balance: We take this one seriously, and work hard to make the pace sustainable.
