Meet Your Future Neighbors

At Nextdoor, machine learning is one of the most important teams we are growing. Machine learning is starting to transform our product through personalization, driving major impact across different parts of our platform including our newsfeed, our notifications, and our ads relevance. Our machine learning team is lean but hungry to drive even more impact and make Nextdoor the neighborhood hub for local exchange.

  • You will collaborate with other engineers and data scientists to create optimal experiences on the Core ML platform, including but not limited to: the featurestore, the real-time serving layer and the offline training system
  • Bring a deep empathy for customer needs and insights as well as an intuitive grasp of the business problems we're trying to solve
  • Extensive experience in one or more of the following languages: Python, Go, Java, or Scala
  • Experience in designing, building, and debugging distributed systems
  • Proven engineering skills. Experience of writing and maintaining high-quality production code
  • A strong ability to partner with other data engineers throughout the company, and consult, design, and review their projects
  • Strong collaboration and communication skills, both verbal and written
  • Ability to succeed in a dynamic startup environment

Bonus Points

  • B.S. / Master in Computer Science, Applied Math, Statistics, Engineering or a related field
  • 2+ years of industry experience of applying machine learning at scale
  • Experience with Python, Kubernetes, Go, Kafka, Docker, Spark, SQL, AWS and the Unix environment
  • Experience with machine learning libraries and frameworks like Xgboost, Sklearn, TensorFlow, PyTorch, etc..


Compensation, benefits, perks, and recognition programs at Nextdoor come together to create one overall rewards package.

The starting salary for this role is expected to range from $120,000 to $192,000 on an annualized basis, or potentially greater in the event that your 'level' of proficiency exceeds the level expected for the role. Compensation may also vary by geography.

We also expect to award a meaningful equity grant for this role. With equal quarterly vesting, your first vest date would be within the first 3 months of your start date.

Overall, total compensation will vary depending on your relevant skills, experience, and qualifications.

We have you covered! Nextdoor employees can choose between a variety of great health plans. We cover 100% of your personal monthly premium for health, dental, and vision – and provide a OneMedical membership for concierge care.

At Nextdoor, we empower our employees to build stronger local communities. To create a platform where all feel welcome, we want our workforce to reflect the diversity of the neighbors we seek to serve. We encourage everyone interested in our purpose to apply. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, age, or any other trait that unfairly targets a group of people.
