    The candidate selected for this position will support the Sponsor Technical Director to create a Data Analytic environment. It must have all the tools and a catalog of data and sources to be used for analyzing and identifying future patterns of failures. These patterns will be fed into Machine Learning to recognize future patterns of failures. It must contain a repository to store the analytic results and visualization tool to display them.

    The candidate will apply their knowledge of C2S to create scripts for standing up an instance for the above analytic run with different requirements of compute and storage. These scripts are well documented and ready to be called for execution from a code repository such as GitHub.

    The candidate must understand the Data Lake concept with all the data requirements, data update and access control. It will be created in C2S as needed to support the analytic runs.

    The sources of data as required above reside among others, in SPLUNK and Network management tools. The candidate must be comfortable navigating the environments above to identify the necessary data for the analytic runs.

    The candidate must be able to architect a production environment that receives live streaming data from different sources and a Hadoop-like engine such as SPARK to process the data to detect possible patterns of failure to alert IT Operations of incoming outages for it to apply corrective measure to prevent or mitigate the impact of outage.

    Finally the candidate will create a webpage to advertise the IT Operations Analytic Environment with the set of problems to be solved and available tools to use to attract the interest of Data Scientists to help achieve it.

    Responsibilities consist of but are not limited to the following:
