Senior Machine Learning Engineer (26125)

to £80k plus benefits

A broad and influential machine learning role

This is a wide-ranging machine learning role where a wide array of techniques will be brought to bear to create powerful and intuitive search features for the end user.

You will be a key member of the technical team, prototyping and evaluating new algorithms, helping to define the future product direction, and leading improvements to existing algorithms. You will drive the implementation of the algorithms, transforming research into practical market-ready products.

You will need:

  • A good degree in Computer Science or other relevant discipline and either an applicable master’s or PhD from a well-respected university.
  • Excellent understanding of machine learning fundamentals together with their practical application to real-world problems. Your knowledge base should include natural language processing (NLP) and/or deep learning amongst other techniques applicable to search algorithms.
  • Strong coding skills and practical ability to implement and objectively evaluate algorithms.
  • Familiarity with AWS.
  • Full existing right to work in the UK without restriction, time limit, or sponsorship.

With many machine learning roles focussing heavily on particular techniques, this role provides technical breadth and a high level of ownership and influence. In addition, the company pay very competitively, and offer an excellent benefits package and equity. They are based in comfortable modern offices in Cambridge, and have a friendly and supportive culture.
