The Role

Digit is the smartest way for anyone to prepare financially for life's needs, wants, surprises and dreams, without changing their daily behavior. This is important because managing personal finances is hard. 65% of Americans couldn’t come up with $2,000 in event of an emergency. National credit card debt is at a record high of over $1 trillion. Our mission is to make financial health effortless for everyone.

We are looking for a passionate, thoughtful and creative person who can thrive at our company's core problem: decision-making under uncertainty. In this role, you'll work with a multidisciplinary team of engineers to research, develop and deploy algorithms and models that will have a direct, positive impact on our user's financial future. You'll have the opportunity to work in greenfield projects applying both emerging and tested personalization techniques such as search & evolutionary algorithms, contextual bandits, reinforcement learning and planning agents.

If you're interested in working in a dynamic team and applying your A.I. knowledge to make a meaningful difference in people's lives, we're excited to meet you!


Here are some ways you’ll make an impact:

  • Develop algorithms and strategies to improve our current predictive systems
  • Spearhead the design and development of models for financial automation under uncertainty
  • Design user feedback and interaction mechanisms that will help drive model personalization
  • Work with a team of experienced engineers to push sophisticated data products into production
  • Act as an educator and advocate for artificial intelligence principles and techniques

Are you the candidate we are looking for?

  • You have broad knowledge of AI algorithms and their applications, including statistical learning, probabilistic models, constraint satisfaction, evolutionary methods and reinforcement learning
  • You have experience implementing state-of-the-art A.I. algorithms in academic, industry, or competitive (e.g. Kaggle) settings
  • You are proficient in at least one modern scripting language like Python or Javascript
  • You get unusual satisfaction from solving puzzles and statistical problems
  • You are interested in designing and implementing solutions that have a direct, positive impact in people's financial lives (this is not a pure research gig!)
  • You keep a copy of Russell & Norvig's Artificial Intelligence: Principles & Techniques somewhere close to your desk

What we offer you:

  • Access to state-of-the-art machine learning infrastructure
  • Competitive salary and stock options
  • 100% paid health insurance coverage
  • 100% paid vision and dental coverage
  • Fertility Benefit
  • Catered lunches with unlimited snacks and drinks
  • Commuter and wellness benefits
  • Flexible vacation policy
