About the role
Halter has over 200,000 collars that connect to our wireless network every minute to report hundreds of metrics that fuel the innovation of every team at Halter. We also talk to those collars several times a minute to issue commands and updated information. This network is the backbone of our product, and we’re looking for someone who can go deep on multivariate analysis of our system to determine how to make the system more performant, robust, and efficient!
This internship will run from the 18th of November 2024 through to the 28th of February 2025. It will be full-time 40 hours a week over this period.

What your day could look like

  • Looking for correlations between message success or failure and environment & system variables like interference, load, message size, timing irregularities, and whatever else you can dig out
  • Determining what towers are actually required to talk to the collars and helping build the algorithm to power off the rest
  • Researching modern methods of data compaction, transmission scheme methodologies, and interference mitigation techniques
  • Working with the software team to get your findings & analysis into production
  • Getting out on farm to observe the product in action to root cause bugs/issues

Who are we looking for?

  • You are enrolled in your penultimate, final year or have a recent completion of a Statistics, Computer Science or Information Technology or similar degree
  • Someone with the right attitude. We’re looking for the deeply curious, those who are driven to learn and grow in all areas.
  • Someone who has intermediate Python, R, or Go skills
  • Someone familiar with AWS and extracting data from sources like SQL & Redis
  • Some university or project-based experience in machine learning and data science
  • Good amount of university or project-based experience with data wrangling
  • Someone who takes ownership and keeps asking questions until they get what they need
  • An intern at Halter is a fully-fledged member of the team and you’ll be given opportunity, ownership and responsibility like everyone else.
  • If this sounds a little intense, it is. You’ll be working alongside an epic team of the best and brightest. You’ll be having an impact and you’ll be learning quickly - that’s Halter.
