Location

  • Anywhere (but there must be a sensible overlap with CET working hours)

An ideal candidate will have a mix of skills that include the following,

  • Mastery of Python (Rust and/or Javascript is a plus)
  • If you never built a parser for raw html or microdata, this position is not for you.
  • Knowledge on Machine learning and classical information retrieval
  • Algorithmic mindset
  • Familiarity with distributed systems
  • Familiarity with AWS environments
  • Written and verbal communication skills in English
  • Proven record of getting things done
  • Can do attitude, team is, and will be small

Example of onboarding tasks:

  • Traverse wikipedia articles (millions) to extract a comprehensive list of authors with their works, given the predicate author, return all subjects and objects.
  • Find near-duplicates results based on content at query-time

If you think this is too much for an onboarding, this is not for you, if you think this is doable and interesting, please apply now.
