Wayfair’s EU Data Science team builds the algorithmic systems that drive our business. 

The team has a wide range of scope: fraud detection, supply chain operations, customer feedback and translations. As a result, we work with several different engineering teams in different departments for our model productization.

As a Machine Learning Engineer, you will partner both with those teams and our Data Science tech leads to productionize cutting-edge models on NLP, fraud detection and supply chain models. 

You will thus join our Senior Machine Learning engineering lead to build out these three areas which  are the newest global domains of Wayfair’s Data Science Team run from our Berlin office. You will do so by partnering with the  various engineering teams across Wayfair and tech leads in our Data Science team and thus build the bridge from Data Science model development to the integration into our engineering infrastructure.  

The projects that our teams work on vary in maturity, but are often built from the ground up – we look for entrepreneurial individuals who want to take ownership over their own agenda and thrive in a collaborative team environment. 

What You'll Do: 

  • Deploy and maintain production models using both internal and external solutions
  • Collaborate closely with the engineering teams of fraud, supply chain, user generated content and merchandising to ensure integration of our machine learning models into the overall engineering systems
  • Improve the pace of innovation and experimentation by introducing best practices and tools for Data Science workflow and DevOps
  • Develop GCP based solutions within EU Data Science team and help establish our team as the center of excellence for GCP

What You'll Need: 

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science or related field
  • 4+ years of previous experience in software engineering with industry experience in Machine Learning 
  • Familiarity with machine learning and parallel processing pipelines, experience with implementation in low-latency real-time platforms and/or scalable offline batch processes 
  • Solid experience with Python (production level code), SQL and cloud-based solutions (preferably GCP)
  • Job scheduling technologies (Airflow, etc.) and containerization for isolated development (Docker, Kubernetes) shouldn’t be foreign concepts to you 
  • Desire to always be learning, and a collaborative team-player attitude! 

Nice to have would be some experience with: 

  • Java or Scala
  • Proficiency in Big Data and Streaming tech (Spark, Kafka, etc)
  • Previous exposure to Fraud, Payments, Supply chain or NLP projects.
