About the company
Hive is a full stack deep learning platform helping to bring companies into the AI era. We label training data through Hive Data, a distributed workforce of over 300,000 workers around the world generating millions of high quality pieces of data a day. We then use this data to build machine learning models with applications in verticals like Media, Autonomous Driving, Retail, and Security. Today, we work with some of the largest companies in the world to redefine how they think about unstructured visual data and together we build solutions that completely transform verticals.
In order to execute our vision, we need to grow our team of best-in-class machine learning engineers. We are looking for developers who are excited about staying at the forefront of deep learning technology, prototyping state-of-the-art neural net models and launching these models into production. We value hard workers who have no qualms working with terabyte-scale datasets, who are interested in learning new technologies at all levels of the machine learning stack, and who move fast and take ownership of their projects. Our ideal candidate has experience creating a working machine learning-powered project from the ground up, contributes innovative ideas and ingenious implementations to the team, and is capable of planning out scalable, maintainable data pipelines.
Everything involved in applying a ML model to a production use case, including, designing and coding up the neural network, gathering and refining data, training and tuning the model, deploying it at scale with high throughput and uptime, and analyzing the results in the wild in order to continuously update and improve accuracy and speed
Interface closely with the Backend and DevOps teams as well as with our internal data labeling services
We are a group of individuals who are young and hungry to make a mark on the world and build a machine learning company for the long run. You will be based in San Francisco and we offer all the standard benefits available to top startup companies. At Hive, you will have a significant career development opportunity and an opportunity to learn directly from our founder / CEO.
