Hired is a talent marketplace that's demystifying the job search by matching top tech and sales talent with compelling opportunities at the world’s most innovative companies. Founded in 2012, Hired was acquired by Vettery and the Adecco Group in 2020, creating the largest hiring marketplace for technology and sales talent. Above all, we envision a world where all hiring is equitable, efficient, and transparent and are committed to empowering connections between ambitious people and teams.

Using Hired, both candidates and employers have transparency into salary offers, competing opportunities, and unique preferences. By combining both our technology and human touch, our goal is to enrich and automate the recruiting process, enabling candidates to employ their potential and find a job they love. To date, Hired has helped over 3 million diverse, vetted candidates find new opportunities at over 17,000 companies throughout the United States, Canada, Ireland, and the UK.

The focus of the Machine Learning Team is automating and digitizing the recruiting process -  from cutting edge recommendations and ranking algorithms, to analytics for performance predictions, to NLP projects for candidate sourcing and profile creation. Hired machine learning engineers work on decision support, product optimization, and operations scaling projects across these areas, as well as creating, deploying, and maintaining deep learning algorithms in production. We’re growing quickly and this role has the potential for huge impact on our trajectory. You’ll be reporting directly to one of our Directors of Engineering and working closely with the Product and Engineering teams.  The ideal candidate is a self-starter, a critical thinker and a good communicator who excels in a fast-paced environment. Join our team and help us build the game-changing machine learning products that will transform recruiting!

Who you are:

    • Ph.D. or M.S. in Statistics, Operations Research, Mathematics, Computer Science, or other quantitative field.
    • 5+ years of industry experience delivering and scaling successful and innovative machine learning products (such as recommender systems).
    • Track record of success working both independently and with key stakeholders to identify and solve machine learning problems.
    • Strong skills in statistical languages (e.g. Python/R) and querying languages (e.g. SQL).
    • Experience with NLP a plus! (but not required)
    • Experience with technologies such as Databricks, AWS Sagemaker, MLFlow, TensorFlow, and PyTorch are also a plus!

What you’ll do:

    • Work with a highly motivated, fun and productive team.
    • Move quickly and deliver amazing machine learning products, developing creative solutions to our biggest engineering challenges.
    • Be a part of the groundbreaking, new platform that will revolutionize not just our Hired ecosystem but technology-enhanced recruiting as a whole!
    • Build machine learning infrastructure and models (e.g. recommender systems, statistical models, NLP engines) that drive activity on our platform, scale our business, and enhance the user experience.
    • Work with our deep learning algorithms that are deployed and functioning in production, and create new algorithms that enhance our existing and experimental products.
    • Collaborate with engineering and product leaders, as well as senior leadership, to frame and tackle a problem, both mathematically and within the business context.
    • Communicate rationale and findings from analyses to facilitate operational decisions.
    • Design and track experiments for machine learning products as well as analyses throughout the organization.
    • In short, own all phases of the machine learning product lifecycle (exploratory data analysis, model development, model productionizing, rollout, and evaluation).
With the above said, we understand that no candidate is perfectly qualified for any job and believe that diversity of background and thought makes for better problem solving and creative thinking, which is why we're dedicated to adding new perspectives to the team. Even more important than your resume is a positive attitude, passion for the work, personal drive for growth, and the ability to thrive in a fluid and collaborative environment. We want you to learn new things in this role, and we encourage you to apply even if your experience doesn't align perfectly to what is listed here.
