Job description
Small Teams; Big Data

At Tapad, we look for individuals who are motivated by complex and challenging work. We want to work with people who share compelling solutions to those challenges, solutions informed by their unique experiences, passions, and expertise.

We are looking for a Senior Machine Learning Engineer to join our global engineering team in New York City. We need a person who can work hands-on as an engineer, solving complex problems and building advanced software systems. We face daily challenges that are both unique and engaging, while processing data at petabyte scale. That is over one trillion data points in any given 60-day period — with consumer privacy and data security at the heart of everything we do.

The size and scale of our challenges demand the use of cutting edge, open-source technologies, like Apache Spark, Apache Beam, and Kubernetes. We’re proud to have been built on Scala from day one.

Collaboration is at the forefront of our day-to-day at Tapad. You would be working with multiple engineering domains, and with our commercial teams, to guarantee that we are delivering the best products. We believe that our engineers have an obligation to dissent and discuss. A successful Tapad engineer understands that their ideas hold weight, and they contribute freely and regularly. We want someone who is motivated to find large-scale solutions with us. We work with big data on small teams. Every contribution is important.

When you work with us, you matter. We ask our employees to make an impact, and feel it is only right to give a lot in return. We offer every employee a 401k with matching, generous maternity/parental leave, and PTO. We believe if you’re sick, feel like you’re getting sick, or just need a personal day, you should take that time to get better. We have free virtual lunches every month, free continuous education, and an open door policy every day. We make sure our virtual office is a welcoming space, full of individuals who can teach and learn from one another everyday.

Interest in machine learning techniques to develop better predictive and clustering models
Experience working with high-scale systems
Proficiency in SQL
Interest in creating powerful machine learning tools that facilitate experimentation and productionalization at scale
Interest in data engineering and warehousing to develop ingestion engines, ETL pipelines, and organizing data to expose it in a consumable format
Passionate about helping mentor your teammates grow by providing insightful code reviews and feedback
Lead technical projects. Taken responsibility for the planning, execution, and success of complex technical projects

Bonus Experience:
Experience with building systems for model training and serving using TensorFlow, Keras, PyTorch, Spark ML, or Kubeflow
Working with productionalization of Machine Learning research, and ML project lifecycle management
Understanding and genuine interest of AI and machine learning methods and algorithms, e.g., gradient based optimization and neural networks
Experience with functional programming
Strong understanding of concurrent and parallel programming
