Company

Our client specializes in deep learning and visual domain machine learning at scale. They have a team of scientists and engineers scale solutions for top global companies and their mission is to build and operate massively scalable systems to tackle some of today's hardest problems. Decades of software and ML expertise, have given valuable clients, helping them to build some of the most widely used products in the world.

Job Description

We are looking for uniquely talented senior applicants with a strong track record of software engineering management and expert-level skills at the intersection of AI/Machine Learning research, computer vision, and large-scale distributed systems. Our products cross these domains, with a mix of engineers operating large scale distributed systems that deliver real-time performance to hundreds of millions of users, and ML specialists researching and implementing the latest sophisticated developments in areas from semi-supervised and active learning for visual domain perception and annotation, image/video retrieval, and beyond. We combine human and machine intelligence on a huge scale, and our products and services are used by many of the largest companies in the world. Candidate responsibilities: • Expertise in leading teams to success in delivering products to market, debugging issues with the software, infrastructure, and teams; • Help to prioritize tasks, guiding our sprints and roadmap; adapting and architecting solutions and APIs that fit with our existing codebases. • Design/architect novel techniques using the latest Deep Learning techniques, in order to support new features. • Inspire and champion the latest technologies, keeping up to date and sharing knowledge of the latest ML research topics. • You work on dynamically evolving systems and customer requirements, in a cross-functional manner, with production engineers, research scientists, product teams, and customers. Requirements: ➛ Practical experience leading projects using Python and specializations with up-to-date DL frameworks such as Pytorch or Tensorflow. You will have worked on taking research into production in one or more example areas: generative models, anomaly detection, active learning, semi-supervised learning, and large-scale distributed GPU or TPU based training, as well as scalable inference and data processing techniques. ➛Recent published academic or research work in the Machine Learning or Computer Vision conferences where we publish (e.g. NeurIPS, CVPR, ICML, ICLR) or journals is a strong plus. A solid grasp of probability theory, statistics, or background in areas such as theoretical physics or quantitative finance would also be appealing. ➛Familiarity with production environments, CI/CD, DevOps tools, Kubernetes, test-driven development, writing reliable, well-documented code is desirable. ➛You'll look forward to working closely with a distributed team with veteran subject matter experts. ➛You'll be excited to solve problems, think unconventionally, develop tools to identify novel ways to extract signals automatically from huge volumes of data while proactively pushing the field forward. ➛Be a self-motivated thought leader rather than a follower, with a driven and inquisitive mindset. ➛Experience at startups or experience in data labeling, computer vision, security, and ML industries is also valuable.
