About Anyscale:

At Anyscale, we're on a mission to democratize distributed computing and make it accessible to software developers of all skill levels. We’re commercializing Ray, a popular open-source project that's creating an ecosystem of libraries for scalable machine learning. Companies like OpenAIUberSpotifyInstacartCruise, and many more, have Ray in their tech stacks to accelerate the progress of AI applications out into the real world.

With Anyscale, we’re building the best place to run Ray, so that any developer or data scientist can scale an ML application from their laptop to the cluster without needing to be a distributed systems expert.

Proud to be backed by Andreessen Horowitz, NEA, and Addition with $250+ million raised to date.

Anyscale is based in San Francisco, CA. Employees are required to come in office 3x a week.

As the Director of Product Management focused on machine learning, you will play a pivotal role in shaping and driving the development of products that power the biggest and most complex AI applications. You will lead a talented team of product managers, engineers, and data scientists to deliver innovative solutions that meet our customers' needs. This is an exciting opportunity to work at the intersection of AI and real-world applications, transforming industries and driving impact.

We’re looking for a seasoned PM leader and operational expert who can chart a path to make Anyscale the go-to platform for delivering the fastest, most cost-efficient modern AI/ML infrastructure. This PM leader will ensure that Developers and ML practitioners have the tools they need to do their work without having to deal with infrastructure or being “locked out” of the latest advances in the space. This PM leader will ensure infrastructure teams have the capabilities they need to modernize and future-proof their ML platforms and avoid being “locked in” to a single, inflexible environment.
