Head of data labelling

Remote /
Operations /
Full time
High-quality labeled data is essential for machine-learning models in the real world. One of the most valuable kinds of data today is in the financial sector. Financial data plays a key role across many industry verticals. However, it has notoriously been locked behind regulatory barriers and a lack of format standards. Our API enables the next generation of financial services, from real-time underwriting to personal finance management and beyond.

We are looking for a head of data labeling to scale Ntropy's data pipeline and help our models reach super-human performance. You will work closely with both external and internal data labellers, as well as our ML engineering team.

The ideal person has previously worked with machine-learning and data pipelines, has regularly interacted with commercial customers and partners, has an extreme attention to detail and can concisely communicate complex concepts.
We
 - are allergic to over-engineering.
 - are anarchists at heart and like to hack around the status quo.
 - are radically honest and appreciate challenging one another, rather than giving out “pats on the back”. Yet, we can always rely on each other for support, feedback and results.
 - are willing to learn and adapt quickly to new situations and requirements. Languages, frameworks, libraries, compilers, etc. are just tools for a job. A new problem might need a new tool. If it doesn’t exist yet, we will build it.
 - have a sense of humor (well, we think we do).

The following is a big plus 
 - passion for machine-learning models in a real-world environments
- past experience with the fintech industry and natural-language data
- excellent proficiency in English and other languages (Spanish, Portuguese, French, etc.)
