  • Excellent technical communication skills

Desired/Preferred skills
  • MS or PhD in Machine Learning or Computer Science or related field
  • SQL
  • Knowledge/experience of putting Machine Learning models into production over distributed architecture with one or more of the following: classification, regression, recommendation systems, time-series, or ranking systems
  • Experience in the development of enterprise-grade ML platforms
  • Database internals.

You can expect to learn more about all of the above, plus:
  • How to design changes which support real customer needs
  • How to debug a complex system
  • Working on a team
  • Testing your code
  • Practical software optimization techniques
  • Planning and executing on a software project
