You will join a team of other ML engineers / data scientists, big data and software engineers, all responsible for the delivery of Ada from the ground up. You will work with product and business stakeholders to deliver algorithms with very clear business objectives, including requirements gathering, model development, prototyping, and interfacing with the software engineering team. Ideal candidates will bring a well-rounded skillset capable of spanning customer-focus, data science and software development disciplines to shape early stage ideas into fully assessed, designed, and implemented machine learning solutions.

The Ada team is looking for a Machine Learning Engineer.
