The Role

As a member of the Analytics as a Service team you will research, design, implement, optimize and deploy deep learning models that advance the current Service Delivery state. A typical day to day includes reading deep learning code/papers, implementing described models and algorithms, adapting them to our setting, driving up internal metrics, working with downstream engineers to set up and integrate neural networks to run efficiently in the data pipeline, and incrementally tracking and improving feature performance indicators. A strong candidate will ideally possess at least one strong expertise in the following areas, and at least a familiarity in others.

The Main Responsibilities

  • Train machine learning and deep learning models on a computing cluster to perform visual recognition tasks, such as segmentation and detection
  • Develop state-of-the-art algorithms in one or all of the following areas: deep learning (convolutional neural networks), object detection/classification, tracking, multi-task learning, large-scale distributed training, multi-hypothesis testing and model building.
  • Optimize deep neural networks and the associated preprocessing/postprocessing code to run efficiently.
  • Prepare data for building the ML based models


What We Look For in a Candidate

  • 8+ years related experience.
  • Degree(s) in Computer Science, Math, Physics, Economics, Operations Research, Statistics or related discipline
  • Experience with relational and non-relational databases.
  • Strong experience with tools for managing, analyzing, and visualizing large datasets.
  • Programming experience with two or more of R, Python, Lisp, Clojure, Scala, Java, Perl, Mathematica and C++.
  • Past success in extracurricular math/science activities or competitions is highly regarded.
  • Creativity and persistence in locating, extracting and analyzing all relevant data.
  • Problem solving versatility: making the best decisions possible given the data quality and time available.
  • Strong analytical thinking and ability to quickly pick up new methods, tools and programming languages.


Preferred:

  • An ideal candidate has strong software engineering practices and is very comfortable with Python programming, debugging/profiling, and version control.
  • We train neural networks on a cluster in large-scale distributed settings. An ideal candidate is very comfortable in cluster environments and understands the related computer systems concepts (CPU/GPU interactions/transfers, latency/throughput bottlenecks during training of neural networks, CUDA, pipelining/multiprocessing, etc).
  • Experience with PyTorch, or at least another major deep learning framework such as TensorFlow, MXNet.
  • Some experience with data science tools including Python scripting, numpy, scipy, matplotlib, scikit-learn, jupyter notebooks, bash scripting, Linux environment.
  • Prior experience coaching junior technical team members
  • Strong background with planning and management of data science projects as well as leading engagement of stakeholders and communication with non-technical SMEs and partners.
  • Experience with the wireline telecommunications industry, notably common product technologies and marketing thereof
