You will work closely with other infrastructure and research teams to design and implement key capabilities of our platform. Examples of projects you will work on:

  • Deploy a thousand-node training cluster optimizing storage and networking stack, with tightly coupled training pipelines to take advantage of multiple parallelism strategies, in our public cloud.
  • Design and build fault-tolerant infrastructure to support long-running large-scale training tasks reliably despite failure of individual nodes, using containers and check-pointing libraries.
  • Design and build run-time infrastructure for serving large ML models such as LLMs and FMs in our public cloud as well as secure third-party cloud providers.
  • Build infrastructure for deploying search indexes and embeddings in vector databases that will work closely with the rest of our platform.
  • Develop SDKs and APIs for our user community to build agents, information retrieval and anomaly/fraud detection systems on our Gen AI platform. 

Basic Qualifications:

  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering or a technical field
  • At least 7 years of experience designing and building large-scale ML systems
  • At least 6 years of experience developing AI/ML algorithms in Python or C/C++
  • At least 5 years of experience leading teams of engineers and applied scientists
  • At least 3 years of experience with the full ML development lifecycle using open-source AI/ML frameworks and public cloud

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Master’s degree or PhD in Computer Science, a related technical field, or or equivalent practical experience with experience in leading applied science and engineering teams.
  • Background in machine learning with experience in large scale training and deployment of deep neural nets and/or transformer architectures.
  • Authored research publications in top peer-reviewed conferences, or industry-recognized open-source contributions in the space of neural networks, distributed training and SysML.
  • Experience with machine learning frameworks such as TensorFlow or Pytorch, Lightning, Mosaic ML on GPU clusters with a focus on distributed training, checkpointing and fault-tolerance.
  • Ability to move fast in an environment with ambiguity at times, and with competing priorities and deadlines. Experience at tech and product-driven companies/startups preferred.
  • Ability to iterate rapidly with researchers and engineers to improve a product experience while building the core components of a platform.
  • Experience working with public cloud infrastructure such as AWS, Azure or GCP.
  • Familiarity with deploying large neural network models in demanding production environments.
