Applied Mind – Machine Learning
At Kensho, we hire talented people and give them the autonomy and support needed to build amazing technology and products. To do this, we look for people who insist on a bias towards action to minimize unhelpful hierarchy and process. We collaborate using our teammates' diverse perspectives to solve hard problems. Our communication with one another is open, honest and efficient. We dedicate time and resources to explore new ideas and, as a result, we produce technology that is scalable, robust, and useful.

As a machine learning infrastructure engineer at Kensho, you are a thoughtful, collaborative, and dynamic technologist who loves building the infrastructure that enables Kensho to take a model from development to production seamlessly. You are relentless about bringing high quality software design practices to a discipline where it is sometimes lacking.  In this role you will constantly use your top-notch collaboration skills working with groups of engineers who approach problems very differently. You understand the subtleties and pitfalls of running statistical models in a production environment, and you are passionate about building robust systems to do so.
