Job Description

About the company
My client is building a gamechanging Machine Learning product focused on helping consumers find the perfect products for their needs. Their platform processes and collates enormous volumes of customer feedback data from dozens of disparate sources – Amazon, Shopify, Etsy, and plenty more – and works within highly specific consumer parameters to help them decide what they want, match them with the perfect product, and massively streamline the research & purchasing process.


About the role
They’re an earlier-stage, well-funded (read: financially stable) startup on a rapid growth trajectory and are currently building out their engineering team at pace to meet customer demand for their core product offering. In this role, you will contribute to the development of backend Machine Learning & AI tools, as well as take charge on the design, build, and delivery of new greenfield products to work in tandem with this core ML platform. Working directly with the CTO, you’ll have a high level of autonomy around technical vision and decision making about how best to approach a given challenge or problem. You’ll also have the opportunity to build and lead a team of sharp, talented developers who will be equally passionate about building next-gen AI/ML systems.

This will be a 100% remote role (no travel) available to candidates based in the US or Canada.

About you
You are a senior+ level developer with deep experience in Python development – ideally with some expertise in Machine Learning platforms. You may not have been a formal “tech lead” in the past, but you have taken the lead on a handful of projects in your career, and are passionate about leading from the front, problem solving, and training/mentoring other developers on best practices. You’re prepared to take the next step in your career, and be a true hands-on-keyboard technology leader who’s ready and willing to answer the call when your team needs you.


Tech Stack: Python, Scala, TypeScript, TensorFlow

Location: Remote in US or Canada

Compensation: $180,000 - $220,000 base salary, olus early-stage equity

Please note: This is a full-time (or contract) position available only to those with valid US or Canadian work authorization. We will not be able to consider third-party candidates and/or candidates requiring sponsorship for this position.
