You will partner with cross-functional stakeholders to design and build flexible, powerful, and robust features that scale the impact of AI for our customers. You will work with Large Language Models like GPT-4 and LLaMA 2, as well as models of the scale of T5 or BERT. You will create novel model architectures and ML/NLP techniques, build data curation and model training workflows, and perform error analysis to drive feature development. As a senior engineer, you will be a core member of the team building a system with complex data and nature of predictions that rapidly evolve over time. You will need to pay close attention to detail, anticipate and welcome constant change, maintain a forward-thinking outlook, all while being fast and scrappy to address present needs.
