Noibu is Canada’s Capital city’s fastest-growing technology company.  We help brands recover millions of dollars in lost sales every day by helping them detect, manage and resolve critical errors on their online store. You may have heard of some of our customers like Levi’s, Champion, Air Transat, Guess, and Jelly Belly.

We're a dedicated team, driven by 4 values; Customer Obsession, Quality, Results-Oriented and Accountability. We've been recognized in 2023 as the Globe and Mail's 8th Fastest Growing Company, 12th in Deloitte Technology Fast 500, #2 in Canada for Deloitte's Fast 50 in Technology, and #4 on Forbes Canada's Best Startup Employers. If you're interested in joining a team poised for greatness, we hope you'll apply!

A bit about us… You will be joining a tight knit team in a fast-paced tech company. We are very close to the product team as we strongly believe that our customers know what we should fix and build next. We don’t believe in ego and operate on idea meritocracy. We also believe that mistakes are opportunities to learn something and that feedback from each other and customers is the best way to improve. We encourage continuous learning and like to share things that we've learned.

What we've achieved so far :

    • Developed a prioritization algorithm to prioritize issues by how much revenue they are causing customers.
    • Developed a model to predict reproduction steps necessary to reproduce an issue.
    • Integrated Large Language Models (LLMs) into our product but are starting to feel the limitations of closed-source LLMs.

What you'll be doing:

    • Understanding LLMs and how we can apply them to our business problems.
    • Understanding how we can feed petabytes of information into our own LLM for purpose built LLMs.
    • Helping us iterate on issue prioritization using a variety of tools. We want to be able to tell users what issues they need to be working on. This problem requires the synthesis of analytical data, image and video processing and traditional reasoning to solve it accurately.
    • We want to develop a tool that helps users reproduce issues reliably with the information we have collected.

Who you are:

    • Working with large amounts of Data (>100GB) and building insights using statistical models
    • Python, SQL, querying and building dashboards
    • Classical Machine Learning (GLMs, XGBoost, Tree-based Models, SVMs, Ensemble Models, Clustering, Dimensionality reduction, handling imbalanced datasets, semi-supervised learning etc.)
    • Familiarity with ML pipelines using tools like Scikit-learn, PySpark, MLflow etc.
    • Building metrics, model evaluation, and monitoring
    • Strong communication skills, and the ability to communicate ideas to non-technical team members
    • A meticulous and detail-oriented working style
    • The ability to distinguish signal from noise
    • A team-player mentality, and excellent collaboration skills
    • Strong multi-tasking skills and desire to work in a fast-paced environment
