  • Perform design and code reviews

What we consider critical for this role:

  • 3+ years of experience building highly scalable ML models and infrastructure for applications such as recommendations, search etc.
  • Expert knowledge in machine learning/deep learning techniques (decision trees, random forests, boosting, CNNs, RNNs, attention mechanisms, etc.)
