Staff Machine Learning Engineer - New York

Job Description:

Compensation Range - 180,000 USD - 230,000 USD

Our Clients mission is to make communities more resilient. They do this by pairing external data with artificial intelligence to identify areas of high risk and prevent catastrophic loss for utilities and infrastructure operators across the country.They are a team of close-knit engineers, entrepreneurs, and data geeks who obsess over problem-solving, new technologies, and making a positive impact in their communities.

Job Summary 

Our Client is looking for a senior-level machine learning engineer to help guide their team’s effort on its next-generation machine learning platform. The company is a product with machine learning at its very heart; as a senior member of the ML team, job is to help refine this vision, continually making machine learning as impactful for their clients as it can be. Your will design and build machine learning tools to build models efficiently, effortlessly, and predictably, models with a high degree of predictive accuracy. You will contribute to a strategy for collecting and fusing diverse sources of data to power their predictive systems, as well as building the tools needed for understanding the performance of models deployed in production settings. Finally, you will be a mentor, improving an already high-performing machine learning team through the breadth of your experience.

We encourage people from underrepresented groups to apply.

What You’ll Do

  • Be a Technical Leader - Provide technical guidance to the team to build an infrastructure that helps scientists to build models, test hypotheses, run experiments, and deploy at scale in production environments.

  • Explore Data - Understand and identify preliminary signals in the data prior to deep processing. Quickly analyze the dataset to assess its usefulness for machine learning.

  • Prototype Models ­- Develop features, uncover patterns, and build models.

  • Explore Techniques - From simple regressions to neural networks, we use a variety of techniques. You'll have the freedom to explore multiple methods to squeeze insights out of data.

  • Productize Models - ­A pattern is good, but a prescriptive solution is better. Build products that help our customers get the most out of their data and workflows.
