Handshake is hiring Staff, Senior Staff, and Principal Machine Learning Engineers with a focus on Generative AI reporting to the Vice President of Engineering of the Data organization.

AI is the future and we are excited to invest in providing AI resources for our users on our platform. Is it possible to thoughtfully design a responsible, Generative AI-driven product, that can help our students progress from educational aspirations to career achievements?  In this role, you will work on tackling that goal as part of a lean, high-visibility team. You will be responsible for helping advance our AI product and infrastructure vision towards our mission of democratizing opportunity for millions of students on Handshake.

Your role

  • You will be a Force Multiplier - setting technical direction, shaping engineering culture, identifying and adopting industry best practices, designing effective partnerships across the company, mentoring and coaching peers, and more. 
  • You will be a Leader -  enabling effective collaboration, high-quality execution, and technical excellence across the Data organization

Your experience

You are an experienced, hands-on senior engineering leader with extensive experience identifying problems, coming up with technical solutions, and driving projects to completion.
