Job Duties/Responsibilities   

  • Design, train and deliver machine learning solutions to a wide range of datasets: from small datasets to big data, both unlabeled and labeled. 
  • Collaborate with the development team and ML engineers to implement, test, and validate new algorithms and integrate the algorithms with the existing front-end and back-end systems. 
  • Build state-of-the-art models for various modeling tasks (e.g., speech recognition, optical character recognition, text-to-speech, facial recognition, time series forecasting, … etc.) 
  • Optimize and automate model training and testing, experimentation tracking, development, and production. 
  • Skilled in breaking down problems, documenting problem statements and estimating efforts. 
  • Mentor junior engineers, perform code reviews and document design decisions. 
  • Create web services/APIs for serving ML/AI model results. 
  • Familiar with MLOps Tools (e.g., MLFlow, Kubeflow, … etc.). 
  • Familiar with unsupervised, semi-supervised, and self-supervised techniques.


 Minimum Qualifications   

  • PhD or MS in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, or similar field 
  • 5+ years of experience with one modern language such as C++, Python including object-oriented design. 
  • 5+ years of experience with machine learning tools and deep learning algorithms and techniques, including but not limited to: 
  • PyTorch, TensorFlow, Keras, Kaldi 
  • Scikit-learn, pandas, NumPy 
  • Optimization techniques and fine-tuning models 
  • State-of-the-art Machine Learning algorithms and techniques (e.g., Transformers). 
  • 3+ years of experience contributing to the architecture and design (architecture, design patterns, reliability, and scaling) of new and current systems. 
  • Experience with MLOps and other production level implementation frameworks and pipelines 
  • Experience with Docker, Kubernetes, and cloud platforms 
  • Able to work independently on problems and in highly collaborative team environments. 


Preferred Qualifications 

  • Team management and mentoring junior members 
  • Research experience with high impact publications
