The Role

We are looking for a Founding Machine Learning Engineer to join our team and work on our flagship product, the Sagely app. After significant discovery and user research, we are ready to put our hypotheses into experiment form and we need some help on the engineering team to do that.

In this role, you will be responsible for designing and building the machine learning systems that serve as the backbone of our product - including classification and real-time recommendation of learning content to our users. Up to this point, we have validated the concept and user need, and now it is time to invest in the technology that will allow us to win the market. We have a strong software engineering team and now we are looking for someone to lead our ML work. You would have the ability to understand the problems, design the experiments, determine the tech stack, and build the team needed to create and scale a unique machine learning system.

Your future teammates come from diverse technical backgrounds, based in Agile, XP, and DevOps principles. We choose to be opinionated about principles and values instead of being dogmatic about frameworks and practices. You would have an opportunity to help us experiment with how we work and help us define what engineering at Sagely looks like going forward.

Our vision is to change the way the world learns, and we are looking for a passionate, opinionated, and growth-oriented Founding Machine Learning Engineer to help lead the way.

Who You Are

  • You are proficient in machine learning languages and frameworks (Python, PyTorch, TensorFlow, etc)
  • You have experience implementing state of the art Machine Learning Techniques to develop solutions leveraging multiple data modalities such as long form text, image, video, tabular, and time series.
  • You have experience implementing MLOps platforms (Kubeflow, Dataiku, Valohai, etc) to operationalize models
  • You have experience navigating data engineering challenges related to designing ML systems (sampling, labeling, imbalance, etc)
  • You are comfortable being the first ML expert on the team and are willing to bring others along with you
  • You believe in iteration and experimentation
  • You are a self-starter who loves to work in teams, but can be effective on their own as needed
  • You are comfortable working in ambiguity
  • You are a strong asynchronous communicator who believes in sharing knowledge with your teammates

What You'll Do

  • You will lead the design and implementation of Sagely's core machine learning systems and their integration with the mobile app experience
  • You will work with other engineers to define and execute end-to-end strategies for development (training, validation, tuning), deployment, and operations at scale
  • You will work with the Sagely leadership to build your team and help shape the product

If you see something that is obviously missing from this job description, that's because you aren't on the team to teach us about it yet!

Why You'll Want to Work Here

  • Competitive salary and equity
  • Flexible vacation policy
  • Remote, flexible work schedules
  • Full medical, dental and vision packages for employees and 75% for dependents
  • Matching 8% 401K contributions
  • Experience as an early member of a startup team
  • Opportunity to work for a startup focused on illuminating learning journeys for individuals and companies
  • Opportunity to create and attend inspiring experiences and events across the industry
  • Opportunity to travel to work with clients and connect with Sagely team through quarterly company retreats and other events
