What You Have Done In Your Career:

  • 5+ years of professional industry experience as a ML Engineer, Data Scientist, or Software Engineer with a focus on building production data/ML products
  • Demonstrated success across the entire ML lifecycle including feature engineering, model development, model deployment, & model maintenance
  • Deep experience with multiple modern ML frameworks like Scikit-learn, PyTorch, TensorFlow, and Hugging Face
  • Experience working with AWS, ideally with SageMaker, Glue, Athena, ECS/Batch
  • Experience as a technical or team lead
