Job Description

Data Scientist

Who we are...
How is Aviso AI different from other approaches in the marketplace?

Most traditional AI approaches in Sales have focused on one narrow slice of the process. These approaches try to "improve" that slice while not addressing the overall malaise of human judgement biases. Aviso approaches Sales from a fundamentally different angle. Instead of pre-identifying slices of the current process and trying to improve them, Aviso looks at all disparate data sets generated during a sales cycle (e.g. raw data in CRM, activity data from Calendar, deal room conversations, and support & success tools), combine them into a single opportunity focused view, and generate training data and models which allows us to decode and isolate the human behavior which drives sales for each individual customer. This allows us to decode not only explicit behaviors (judgement on moving stages, categories etc), but also implicit behaviors (when are these values being changed and their sequencing.). Aviso’s AI Compass uses an automated machine learning framework for feature discovery and model building. As new customers are onboarded, Aviso bootstraps history from the source systems, Aviso’s machine learning framework discovers the most predictive features for that customer and builds an ensemble of predictive models from that history. As customers use the product, our temporal database builds a history of all data sources which our AutoML engine uses to retrain these models as the business changes. Predictions from these models are generated and published daily as insights, nudges, and team-wide actions. Our temporal database also allows us to backtest our predictions and see how new model types, feature selection techniques or data sources provide gains over a wider past period.
