  • Professional experience working with real-world, physical data
  • A track record of having shipped models and code into production
  • Strong programming skills in object-oriented languages (functional programming is a plus), including ability to debug and optimize a code
  • Working knowledge of machine learning, data engineering, deep learning frameworks, and related testing techniques


  • Medical, Vision and Dental coverage (PPO, HMO, and HSA options available; 100% premium coverage of several PPO and HMO plans for employees and their dependents)
