At Sift, we enhance trust and safety in the digital world with our AI driven technology platform. Our products deliver payment protection, ensure content integrity, and protect account defense for businesses around the world. The Machine Learning Platform team exists to enable product teams to construct and operate their production machine learning services as effectively as possible.

The team does this by providing a platform which handles the common needs of the product teams including production system integration, model training, model availability, health and monitoring infrastructure for model serving, and a streamlined model release process.

What you'll do:

As a Model Release Engineer in the Machine Learning Platform team, you will primarily be responsible for training ML models and deploying models. Additionally, you will manage our model training and release pipeline that enables all our product teams to enhance their models. 

Specifically, you will:

  • Champion the model release process by improving existing systems and building tools to make the release of new machine learning models fast, easy, safe, and minimally disruptive.
  • Implement easily maintainable data processing pipelines.
  • Motivate, listen and empathize, and help engineers and data scientists to excel.

What would make you a strong fit:

  • 2+ years of professional software development experience or a degree in CS (or a related field) with 1+ years of experience.
  • Experience solving problems with production systems, and building solutions and automations to prevent them from reoccurring.
  • Experience with programming languages such as Java and Python.
  • Proven experience with automation and knowledge of configuration management tools.
  • Experience with workflow management tools such as Apache Airflow.
  • Experience with Relational and Non-relational databases.
  • Strong debugging, testing, tuning, and problem-solving skills.
  • Strong communication & collaboration skills, and a belief that team output is more important than individual output.
  • Self-starter, with a quick learning curve.

Bonus points:

  • Experience working with data processing technologies for batch processing, such as Apache Spark and MapReduce.
  • Practical knowledge of how to build end-to-end ML workflows.
  • Knowledge of GCP or AWS cloud stack for web services and big data processing.
  • Familiarity with Docker and container clustering technologies like Kubernetes, GKE or AWS ECS.
