About Scale
At Scale, our mission is to accelerate the development of Machine Learning and AI applications across multiple markets. Our first product is a suite of APIs that allow AI teams to generate high-quality ground truth data. Our customers include Alphabet (Google), Waymo, Zoox, Lyft, Pinterest, Airbnb, nuTonomy, and many more


About the Role

The goal of a research engineer at scale is to bring techniques in the fields of computer vision, deep learning and deep reinforcement learning, or natural language processing into a production environment to improve scale.ai’s products and customer experience. Our research engineers take advantage of our unique access to massive datasets to deliver improvements to our customers.

We are building a large hybrid human-machine system in service of ML pipelines for dozens of industry-leading customers. We currently complete millions of tasks a month, and will grow to complete billions of tasks monthly. 
As a Research Engineer, you will:
  • Take state of the art models developed internally and from the community, use them in production to solve problems for our customers and taskers.
  • Take models currently in production, identify areas for improvement, improve them using retraining and hyperparemeter searches, then deploy without regressing on core model characteristics
  • Work with product and research teams to identify opportunities for improvement in our current product line and for enabling upcoming product lines
  • Work with massive datasets to develop both generic models as well as fine tune models for specific products
  • Build the scalable ML platform to automate our ML services
  • Be a representative for how to apply machine learning and related techniques throughout the engineering and product organization
  • Be able, and willing, to multi-task and learn new technologies quickly
Requirements:
  • Degree in computer science, or related field
  • Experience using computer vision, deep learning and deep reinforcement Learning, or natural language processing in a production environment
  • Solid background in algorithms, data structures, and object-oriented programming
  • Strong programing skills in Python or Javascript, experience in Tensorflow or PyTorch
Nice to Haves:
  • Graduate degree in Computer Science, Machine Learning or Artificial Intelligence specialization
  • Experience working with cloud technology stack (eg. AWS or GCP) and developing machine learning models in a cloud environment
