Machine Learning Infrastructure Engineer
Littleton, Massachusetts, US
Our mission is to revolutionize customer service by developing and deploying the latest conversational artificial intelligence (AI), natural language processing (NLP) and speech technologies in IBM’s industry-leading chatbot platform Watson Assistant.
We deploy, train and serve an enormous number of machine learning models for our enterprise customers from a diverse set of industries. We are proud of the state-of-the-art, scalable and performant machine learning infrastructure we have built, and we are now significantly expanding our team!
Your Role and Responsibilities
This position is for a senior AI engineer in IBM Watson Assistant’s machine learning infrastructure team. Your responsibilities will include developing scalable and fault-tolerant distributed systems that will train and serve cutting edge machine learning models.
Although this position is for AI infrastructure, you will have to always keep the business requirements and customer needs in mind. Your responsibilities will span the entire lifecycle of a component, including gathering requirements, design and development, continuous integration/deployment and operations. You will work with researchers, data scientists, user experience designers, and product managers to understand requirements, create technical solutions, and deploy to cloud.
You will use the latest software development tools, techniques and approaches and work with leading minds in the industry to build solutions you can be proud of. You will work in a collaborative, welcoming environment where new ideas drive technological innovation.
Above all, we are looking for team members with a keen sense of ownership, resilience and drive. If you like dynamic projects and enjoy being challenged, if you can make progress when faced with ambiguous requirements and uncertainty, if you enjoy moving fast (and making a mistake or two on the way), then we may be the perfect team for you!
