  • Evaluate and train Large Language Models (LLMs), traditional language models such as BERT, and other machine learning models such as XGBoost.

  • Hands-on develop, productionize, and operate Machine Learning models and pipelines at scale, including both batch and real-time use cases.

  • Leverage third-party and in-house Machine Learning tools & infrastructure to develop reusable, highly differentiating and high-performing Machine Learning systems, enable fast model development, low-latency serving and ease of model quality upkeep.

  • Practice continuous delivery / continuous integration methodologies using tools like CircleCI, SonarQube, and JFrog for testing, deployment, and promotion to production

  • Design, build, and deploy APIs to serve predictive insights tailored to our construction data sets.

  • Work collaboratively with cross-functional partners including software engineers, product managers, operations and data scientists, identify opportunities for business impact, understand, refine, and prioritize requirements for machine learning models, drive engineering decisions, and quantify impact.

What we’re looking for:

  • 5+ years of industry experience in applied Machine Learning, inclusive MS or PhD in relevant fields

  • Exceptional written and verbal communication skills

  • Strong programming ( Python / Java / C++ or equivalent) and data engineering skills

  • Strong understanding in the machine learning and data science technical ecosystems (e.g., Tensorflow, Pytorch, MLflow, Ray, LangChain, Data lake house (Databricks), Snowflake, SageMaker, Scikit-learn, etc)

  • Deep understanding of Machine Learning best practices (eg. training/serving skew minimization, A/B test, feature engineering, feature/model selection), algorithms (eg. gradient boosted trees, neural networks/deep learning, optimization) and a strong desire to further pursue natural language processing techniques, including LLMs.

  • Industry experience building end-to-end Machine Learning infrastructure and/or building and productionizing Machine Learning models

  • Understand cost of software development / tech debt and long-term maintenance

  • Passion for customers and seeking a deep understanding of end-user problems as well as competitive and market trends in the AI space
