Job Description *Software Engineer - Michelangelo ML Platform* *About the role:* Collaborates with stakeholders within the team to build and maintain backend services and solutions to support user-facing products, downstream services, or infrastructure tools and platforms used across Uber. *About the Team:* We are a team within the Uber AI Platform (Michelangelo) that is paving the way for Data-centric ML. We pioneered the use of feature store as a fundamental building block of the ML lifecycle across the industry. The feature store powers models at Uber for training and serving at millions of QPS with very low latencies. Our ongoing mission is to continue to scale the feature store, support advanced use cases, and MLOps infrastructure to create high quality features and labels for use in machine models in an automated way (AutoML). We work closely with Data Science and ML teams across Uber to develop algorithms and tooling for sharing, discovery, computation, selection, transformation and monitoring of features and embeddings. Be part of the team that is setting the direction of the industry via pioneering work on feature store, and feature engineering.
