Nice-to-have

  • Graduate degree in geosciences, engineering, computer sciences or related programs.
  • Previous experience (1-5 years) in a scientific data analysis role.
  • Familiarity with geological, geophysical, petrophysical and/or drilling data a major plus.
  • Experience in the oil and gas industry a major plus.

Bonus points

  • Experience with data visualization/analytics software: Spotfire, Tableau, etc.

As a member of Fracture ID’s R&D team you will be responsible for processing and analyzing drilling vibration measurements to advance the application and science of drillbit geomechanics.  

This position is well suited for a bright, self-motivated individual who is capable of working under limited supervision and has experience programmatically manipulating large data sets.  Intermediate programming ability is required.  The Data Scientist is ideally a recent graduate (MS/PhD; or exceptional undergraduate), or someone with 0-15 years of experience in industry.  

Key Responsibilities

  • Conducts supervised scientific analyses in order to systematically investigate the processing and analysis of drilling vibration measurements in relation to mechanical rock properties, petrophysical measurements and drilling operations.
  • Works to establish meaningful geological, geophysical and petrophysical relationships amongst various data sets.
  • Creates and maintains processing scripts.
  • Creates compelling data visualizations from disparate data sets.
  • Creates and automates reproducible test cases.
  • Captures documents and reports results of data analysis.
  • Devises and implements their own ideas for improving data analysis workflows.
  • Participates in the discovery and development an industry leading technology.
  • Effectively communicates results to internal product development teams.


Qualifications

Required

  • BS degree or technical diploma in geosciences, engineering, computer sciences or related programs.
  • At least one year of demonstrated experience with one or more of the following programming languages: Python, Matlab, R, shell scripting. A code sample will be required during the interview process.

Nice-to-have

  • Graduate degree in geosciences, computer sciences, engineering or related programs.
  • Experience with version control software is preferred.
  • Previous experience (0-15 years) in a scientific data analysis role.
  • Previous experience conducting either supervised or unsupervised research.
  • Formal coursework in probability and/or statistics.
  • Familiarity with geophysical, petrophysical and/or drilling data a major plus.

Bonus points

  • Experience with data visualization/analytics software a plus: Spotfire, Tableau, etc.
  • Experience with any flavor of SQL a plus.

As a member of Fracture ID’s Technical Development team you will be responsible for extending the capabilities of our proprietary data processing software that is written in Python.  Our processing software efficiently analyzes large quantities of downhole vibration data (10s of GBs per well) to compute geomechanical rock properties at an extremely detailed resolution (on the scale of inches).  Projects will include (but are not limited to): user interface development, full-stack web development, algorithm implementation, and infrastructure development.

This position is well suited for a bright, self-motivated individual who is capable of working under limited supervision.   The Software Engineer is ideally someone with 1-5 years of industry experience as a software engineer, but exceptional recent graduates will be considered as well.  The ideal candidate will be someone who is comfortable being a generalist, as many of the projects for this position will require working across a wide range of technologies and programming languages.  Qualified candidates will have a solid understanding of the fundamentals of software engineering.  This person should have experience throughout the software life cycle, and should be comfortable working in small-teams or individually, in an Agile startup environment.  

 

Key Responsibilities

  • Write high quality, maintainable Python code.
  • Make performance and usability enhancements throughout the codebase.
  • Modernize legacy code.
  • Implement enhancement requests from the processing team.
  • Fix bugs that the processing team identifies in a timely manner.
  • Integrate external software within our processing platform to expedite processing workflows.
  • Design, and implement a performant processing metadata database.
  • Develop a web-based front-end for the processing metadata database to allow users to easily execute CRUD operations, and present the data in the database in context (either in log view, or map views).
  • Improve workflow automation tools.
  • Implement scientific algorithms to process large quantities of data efficiently.
  • Build small standalone GUI utilities for other internal groups.
  • Effectively communicate with users, gather their requests and feedback, and then design and implement solutions to satisfy user needs.
  • Use software development best practices (e.g. version control, Agile project management, etc.)

Qualifications

Required

  • BS degree in geosciences, engineering, computer sciences or related programs. Graduate degree preferred.
  • 1-5 years of experience as a professional software engineer.
  • At least 4 years of demonstrated overall programming experience (can be a combination of academic and professional experience).
  • At least 2 years of demonstrated experience with one of the following programming languages: Python, Java, C/C++. A code sample written in one of these languages will be required during the interview.
  • Experience developing software using an IDE.
  • Experience with graphical user interface development.
  • Experience with database development using any flavor of SQL/SQLite.
  • Experience throughout the software lifecycle.
  • Experience with Git or other version control software.
  • Experience with Agile software development methodologies.

Preferred

  • Experience with scientific Python stack preferred, including: Scipy, Numpy, Pandas.
  • Experience with writing high performance software capable of efficiently manipulating datasets on the order of 10s of GBs strongly preferred.
  • Experience with full-stack web development using JS/HTML5 preferred.
  • Experience with geophysical, petrophysical, or drilling datasets a major plus.
