But the fun doesn't stop at model-building. Our work involves an immersive dive into data - gathering, cleaning, analyzing, and extracting meaningful insights.

Key Focuses:

  • Design, develop, and maintain machine learning models and algorithms to solve complex business problems
  • Identify patterns, trends, and anomalies in the data, and visualize insights using appropriate tools
  • Perform data cleaning, preprocessing, and feature engineering to prepare datasets for model development
  • Assess the performance of machine learning models using appropriate metrics, validation techniques, and testing datasets
  • Optimize models by fine-tuning hyperparameters, feature selection, or employing regularization techniques to improve accuracy, performance, and scalability

Minimum Qualifications:

  • 1+ year of professional software development experience with a focus in machine learning
  • Expertise in machine learning algorithms, techniques, and best practices
  • Comprehensive computer science fundamentals in coding, object-oriented programming, data structures, and algorithms

Preferred Qualifications:

  • 3+ year of professional software development experience with a focus in machine learning
  • BS/MS/PhD in Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, related technical field or equivalent practical experience
  • Strong knowledge of machine learning algorithms (e.g., linear regression, SVM, decision trees, neural networks, clustering, etc.) and best practices
  • Experience with machine learning algorithms and frameworks, such as TensorFlow, PyTorch, or scikit-learn
  • Knowledge of deep learning architectures and techniques, such as Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs), Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs), Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM), and Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs)
  • Familiarity with NLP techniques and tools, such as tokenization, stemming, lemmatization, sentiment analysis, and named entity recognition, and libraries like NLTK, SpaCy, or BERT

As part of our team you’ll enjoy:

  • Competitive compensation
  • Exceptional benefits package
  • Flexible Vacation & Paid Time Off
  • Employer-matched 401(k) plan
