Machine Learning Engineer

The Challenge:

Are you excited at the prospect of unlocking the secrets held by a data set? Are you fascinated by the possibilities presented by the IoT, machine learning, and artificial intelligence advances? In an increasingly connected world, massive amounts of structured and unstructured data open up new opportunities. As a data scientist, you can turn these complex data sets into useful information to solve global challenges. Across private and public sectors — from fraud detection, to cancer research, to national intelligence — you know the answers are in the data.

We have an opportunity for you to use your analytical skills to bridge the gap between our cutting edge Data Science work and our commercial Artificial Intelligence deployment solution as a Machine Learning Engineer. You’ll work closely with your team to leverage your coding development experience to implement cutting edge Data Science concepts using standard and emerging Data Science libraries, including Keras, Pytorch, and Tensorflow. You’ll help move those concepts through a software development evolution from ideation, to proof of concept, and then on through software engineering before overseeing a containerization process resulting in an atomic, scalable, algorithmic processor. Join us as we use data science for good in the emerging world of artificial intelligence.

Empower change with us.
