We use data to power everything we do, from product features to marketing insights.

We have experienced 300% year-over-year growth, and the scale of our network will continue to grow in the future. There is a seemingly endless supply of challenging new problems and new questions.
Our data stack is built on Python running in AWS. We utilize Caffe, Dlib, PyTorch and OpenCV to build our systems. We have a fleet of p2.xlarge instances that scales in real-time with user engagement. Our product-facing JSON API is built in Ruby on Rails, which forwards requests to the Python services using SQS.
An ideally qualified candidate will have many or all of the following:
- 3+ years experience with Python
- 3+ years experience with ML at scale
- Familiarity with ML frameworks including Caffe, Dlib, PyTorch
- Familiarity with computer vision frameworks including OpenCV
- Familiarity with AWS technologies including EC2 and SQS
- Experience with or a desire to learn about Ruby on Rails
- An inquisitive attitude, and drive to ask and find answers to hard questions using data
This position is available in San Francisco (Mission) or New York City (Chinatown). We have fully staffed offices including engineering teams in both cities. You will have the opportunity to travel between offices for team meetings and offsites. We are also open to candidates in Seattle, where our Chief Scientist is located.
