Job type: Full-time

Hiring from: US only

Category: Software Dev


Qntfy is looking for a talented and highly motivated ML Engineer to join our team. ML Engineers are responsible for building systems at the crossroads of data science and distributed computing. You will do a little bit of everything: from tuning machine learning models, to profiling distributed applications, to writing highly scalable software. We use technologies like Mesos/Marathon, Kubernetes, Docker, Kafka, gRPC, and Spark. You aren’t a DevOps, but an understanding of how the nuts and bolts of these systems fit together is helpful and you aren't a data scientist, but understanding how models work and are applied is just as important.

Responsibilities

  • Collaborate with data scientists to get their models deployed into production systems.

  • Develop and maintain systems for distributed model training and evaluation.

  • Build tools for testing, benchmarking, and deploying analytics at scale.

  • Interface with the technical operations team to understand analytic performance and operational behavior.

  • Write and test code for highly available and high volume workloads.

Qualifications

  • BS or Master’s degree in Computer Science, related degree, or equivalent experience.

  • 5+ years experience with software engineering, infrastructure design, and/or ML skills.

  • Write well-structured, maintainable, idiomatic code with good documentation.

  • Strong work-ethic and passion for problem solving.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Familiarity with machine learning frameworks like Scikit-learn, Tensorflow, and Pytorch.

  • Machine learning API development competencies.

  • Golang development experience.

  • Container orchestration and optimization knowledge.

  • Proficiency designing, implementing, and operating large-scale distributed systems.

  • Prior experience working in a distributed (fully remote) organization.

Qntfy is committed to fostering and supporting a creative and diverse environment. Qntfy is an equal opportunity employer, and as such will consider all qualified applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability, age, or veteran status.

  • Frontastic GmbH (in/near Europe)
    2 days ago

    Frontastic is looking for a Technical Writer (f/*/m) as part-time position (16-24 hrs / week). We are a remote-first company currently operating in the Europe/Berlin timezone. Even though we are a distributed team, we try to streamline synchronous communication and to reduce effort for attending our quarterly retreats. Therefore we are looking for people living in Europe.

    As our first dedicated technical writer you will have the opportunity to be a major influence on our entire technical documentation stack for developers (frontend & backend) and designers.

    This is not a junior position, but if you are experienced and ship proven work on your own, this position is for you. Your job will be to collect all the loose ends of technical documentation in our systems and pull them together into a conceived and discoverable documentation experience. You will work closely with our engineering and professional service team to extract their knowledge and create the foundation for the long term evolution of our docs.

    THIS MEANS

    • Actively writing documentation for technical people in terms of tutorials, references, API specs, etc.

    • Finding and maintaining a system for making this documentation discoverable for our integration partners and customers.

    • Coordinating and working together with our engineers and professional service people to extract their experience into documentation.

    • Defining standards for how we write and present our documentation.

    YOU BRING

    You bring a background in web application software development using JavaScript (and optionally PHP). You are a proficient speaker and writer of English. You have a passion for writing technical articles and have made up your mind extensively on how to create documentation for large software frameworks/ecosystems.

    You are motivated to work from your home office or a co-working space and able to structure your work day accordingly. That’s what makes you special:

    • You have a passion about explaining technical topics to people.

    • You can grasp and explain new technologies without understanding them in depth.

    • You are able to find structure for approaching a complex technical system easily from different perspectives.

    • You are motivated to keep track of a large documentation base and ensure its quality in the long run.

    • You have a completed education and at least 3 to 5 years of professional experience as a technical writer or in a comparable field.


    WHAT WE OFFER

    As our colleague you have the flexibility to choose your own working hours throughout the day to incorporate this job into your life-work balance. Our work week has 40 hours maximum and overtime is the exception. No vacation days are necessary to run errands, and there is certainly no need to wait until after work to take care of a family emergency.

    Our development team strives to improve themselves following these guidelines:

    • A culture of owning your code from design & development to deployment and monitoring, which is sometimes called DevOps.

    • We offer a friendly learning environment and try hard not to blame anyone for not knowing something and actively encourage mentoring of your peers.

    • We use practices like pair programming, mob programming, test driven development when it makes sense and continuously refactor our code to constantly share knowledge and keep the amount of technical dept low.

    • We are a remote-first company with regular meetings in-person. We use tools like Email, Trello, Hangouts and Slack to stay in touch during our daily work.

    • We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. If we receive job applications from yet underrepresented groups those applications will be preferred.

    COMPENSATION & HOW-TO APPLY
