About Kintsugi

Kintsugi is on a mission to scale access to mental healthcare for all. We are developing novel voice biomarker software to detect signs of depression and anxiety from short clips of free form speech. Awarded multiple distinctions for AI technology and recently named one of Forbes’ Top 50 AI companies to watch in 2022, Kintsugi helps to close mental health care gaps across risk-bearing health systems, ultimately saving time and lives.

At Kintsugi, we believe that mental health is just as important as physical health. We exist to ensure that everyone who needs mental healthcare has access to the right care at the right time.

  • Identify, evaluate and implement technologies to track and improve performance and reliability of our ML systems
  • Identify sources of bias in our ML models and implement methods to ensure equitable performance
  • Work with our cloud team to define requirements for production model deployment while balancing compute costs and model performance

Qualifications

  • M.S./Ph.D. in Computer Science or B.S. with 2+ years of experience in building production-grade machine learning models in industry and/or academic research settings
  • Strong programming skills in python with extensive experience with the scientific and deep-learning stack (numpy, pandas, numba, torch, tensorflow, jupyter)
  • A proven track record of building end-to-end neural network models and presenting results to colleagues 
  • Experience optimizing the compute performance of models  for production
  • Ambitious team player with strong communication skills (oral and written)
  • Experience implementing and experimenting with cutting-edge ML techniques from the literature

Bonus Qualifications

  • Background in speech processing or audio classification
  • Experience with experiment tracking and reproducibility tools (MLFlow, WandB, DataBricks, etc)
  • Experience working in a cloud environment (GCP, AWS, Azure, etc)
  • Recent publication(s) in peer-reviewed AI journals

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
