  • Decide on the right metrics to optimize in our Search AI platforms and set up processes to track and optimize these metrics 
  • Set up DataOps and MLOps processes and tools, including model training and retraining, model evaluation, data labeling, A-B testing, etc
  • Collaborate with peers across multiple technology disciplines, ensuring AI platforms and solutions deliver business and technical requirements 
  • Serve program teams to better understand their problems and goals, recommending possible solutions and building consensus around architecture 
  • Oversee and manage the full AI program life cycle implementations
  • Assist, guide, and drive engineering teams by providing technical oversight during implementation and owning technical delivery 
  • Contribute digital thought leadership with an AI-driven mindset to a larger tech community, and be a change agent
  • Ensure all architectural consideration and non-functional requirements around high availability, scalability, maintainability, and extensibilities are factored in in the core system
  • Implement POC, sample use case, and core platform components for a highly scalable application 
  • Successful history of manipulating, processing, and extracting value from large, disconnected datasets and Data Ingestion, processing of structured and unstructured data in big data ecosystem - Hadoop, Spark, and Spark Streaming 
  • Lead technical workshops in driving strategic initiatives, while developing and managing relationships with both internal and external vendors
