Machine Learning Engineer, Lead

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 organizations increasingly look for both effective and practical machine learning, we’re looking for you, a data scientist, machine learning engineer, or artificial intelligence specialist who knows how to step back and understand the complex relationships between the business needs, the data, and modeling approaches.

We have an opportunity for you to use your leadership and analytical skills to accelerate innovation in artificial intelligence by developing innovative solutions that harness vast amounts of unstructured text data to help organizations better search, understand, analyze, and leverage their data. You will get to push the boundaries of insights gained from analyses by developing recommender systems, chatbots, and other applications. You will not only conduct deep analytics, but also get to deploy your solutions – learning from the best of both analytics and engineering. You will apply knowledge of your particular field of specialization towards the assessment of program concepts, research and development activities, or emerging technologies. As a machine learning engineer, leadership and clients will look to your guidance to help them evaluate technical progress, identify risks, and recommend mitigation activities. Join us as we use data science for good.

Empower change with us.
