As a Remote first company, we believe that the internet is where the work happens, an office is just somewhere you can connect to the internet. We believe that everyone can make a difference at Rasa no matter where they are based. We have 2 research groups, in Berlin, Germany and Edinburgh, UK, so if you would prefer to work on site you can join either of those locations.
We are looking for a senior machine learning engineer with experience in natural language processing who combines technical, communication, and analytical capabilities; who can architect and implement efficient algorithms in tensorflow; and who will have the opportunity to design and develop creative, compelling, and cutting-edge systems that support our mission.
We don’t draw a hard line between our research and engineering teams, we all work on the same stack and share work, knowledge, and tools. Your work will be used by thousands of developers all over the world, and you’ll spend time with our community to get inspiration and feedback. We’re not here to chase SotA on established benchmarks. To ship machine learning products that really help our community, you’ll need to develop new machine learning tools that help developers build great conversational software, and enable them to build things that they can’t currently. You'll have to come up with good architectural designs, quality code, and break an ambitious long-term vision down into milestones and issues. For example, you should feel comfortable refactoring this code to accommodate different types of attention.
We do fundamental research, and we ship commercial quality software that puts it to use. Because engineering is so close to research, you’ll quickly learn a lot about research practice and translating it into working systems. You can check out some of our projects on our research page.
Please keep in mind that we are describing the background we imagine would best fit the role. Even if you don’t meet all the requirements, yet you are confident that you are up for the task, we absolutely want to get to know you!
We’re a startup, so you’ll have to be comfortable rolling up your sleeves and doing whatever is required to support our mission. However, you can definitely expect to:
