  • A strong understanding of fundamental concepts in deep learning and related mathematics.
  • The ability to quickly implement infrastructure, iterate on it, and evaluate it empirically.
  • Strong communication skills - you speak, and write, your mind well. We’re a distributed team so we’re extra mindful about communication
  • Experience working with distributed systems.
  • At least 5 years of professional experience in software development.

Preferred experience

  • Experience building applications with Python and/or Go
  • Experience with ML frameworks such as Tensorflow, HuggingFace, Pytorch
  • Experience with ML algorithms such as Transformers, LSTM, RNN, language models, NLP
  • Experience working remotely in a distributed company
