Job Description

Passionate about tech? Interested in energy and climate action? Join Kayrros, a tech scale-up using artificial intelligence and satellite imaging to fight climate change and transform the world’s biggest industries.

Kayrros is a leading environmental intelligence company at the forefront of climate action that uses AI, satellite imaging, geolocation data and other sources of information to accomplish three main missions: reduce greenhouse gas emissions; protect people, assets and ecosystems from climate risks (flooding, wildfires); and facilitate and accelerate the energy transition.

Our team of experts and tech wizards is working to bring near-realtime transparency to energy and the environment, from crude oil inventories and solar energy to methane emissions, wildfire risks and afforestation. In just six years, the Kayrros team has grown to 150 experts in data science, mathematics and energy, representing over 20 nationalities and 10 spoken languages. The team works from six offices across three continents: our Paris headquarters, New York, Houston, London, Singapore and Bangalore. Our ~100+ clients including a wide range of stakeholders including government regulators and policymakers, international organizations, energy companies, asset managers, insurance companies, lending banks, trading companies and civil society.

Just in the last few months, Kayrros was recognized as a member of French Tech 2030, crowned by TIME magazine as one of the TIME100 Most Influential Companies in the world, by the Financial Times as a Tech Champion and by Fast Company as one of the five Most Innovative Companies in energy and the environment. Kayrros is the main data supplier to the UN Environmental Program’s International Methane Emissions Observatory (IMEO) and was acknowledged in the latest UNEP Global Methane Assessment report.

Kayrros is expanding its team of talented people dedicated to positively disrupting the world’s biggest industries and shaping the future of energy and the environment.

Join us to make a difference!

We are currently recruiting for our Paris office, a Junior Data Scientist M/F (6 months internship)

The team you will be joining: the Minerve team

Minerve is a multi-year, multi-tenant project which aims at empowering the SNCF (national rail company) with a better understanding of the risks associated with climate change on their infrastructure and more impactful decision-making processes with respect to maintenance and/or investment decisions. Kayrros mandate in the consortium is to lead the R&D of the project on two main axes:
- understanding the impact of climate change on the nature and frequency of extreme weather events,
- understanding the vulnerability of SNCF assets with respect to these extreme events

Role :

Data scientists have a central role in Kayrros. Working hand in hand with the analysts and the data engineers, they contribute to the whole pipeline of projects, including scoping projects, identifying and collecting data, constructing features, designing models, visualization, testing and improving products with clients.

They face two main challenges:

  • The diversity of data available (they have to combine many different sources of data: text data, satellite images, time series…)
  • The diversity of the problems (supervised, unsupervised…)

As a data scientist, you will therefore have to:

  • Formulate problems considering available data and value of information
  • Design, implement and test machine learning algorithms
  • Continuously provide ideas to improve products and take part in all team decisions.

In the Minerve team, you will be tasked with one of the three following subject:
1. Analysis of the vulnerability of SNCF assets
2. Projection of the “extreme temperature swings” weather event
3. Weather data upscaling

Profile :

This is an ideal opportunity if you are looking for a six-month internship starting between January and May 2024, and you want to join a fast-growing start-up.

  • You have a strong background and are passionate about machine learning, statistics, operations research. You are very interested in various topics including deep learning, machine learning applied to time series, image and signal processing. You demonstrate experience in a least one of these areas
  • You have strong programming skills in Python, Machine Learning libraries, data visualization packages and data manipulation. Previous exposures to GitHub preferred
  • You are dynamic, curious and eager to learn about climate models, geo-analysis and remote sensing
  • You can design and deliver working prototypes in a fast-paced environment and then put them into production with the help of software engineers
  • You can communicate clearly in English, including with non-technical people
  • You are willing to contribute actively and have a real impact to the company success
  • Fluent French required
  • No gap year internship

We encourage all qualified candidates, eager to learn and grow, to apply, even if they do not meet all of the requirements listed above.

Why join Kayrros?

  • We are a young, fast-growing tech company and are extremely passionate about what we do.
  • We are located in the WeWork building on Rue la Fayette, 75009 (free drinks, events and a vibrant atmosphere).
  • You will work with an international team and practice your English (or Chinese, German, Greek, Portuguese...) on a day to day basis.
