  • Interest in search
  • Interest in journalism, news, media or social media

In addition, we’re always looking for candidates who:

  • Research and evaluate new ML Engineering methodologies, approaches, and solutions
  • Test, deploy, and monitor supervised or unsupervised learning models
  • Write queries (SQL, elastic search) to grab the right set of data to solve their problem
  • Build tools to enable other data scientists to scale their knowledge and increase impact
  • Interpret and communicate analytic results to analytical and non-analytical business partners and executive decision makers
  • Participate in code reviews and model reviews of their teammates
