Within UniGroup’s Data Science & Machine Learning team (we go by “dismal” if you have a sense of humor), the machine learning engineer is charged with improving the ML workflow for our data scientists. Scaling up prototype models to handle UniGroup’s enterprise scale requires both deploying models into custom high throughput web services, but also providing tools to improve the workflow speed and reproducibility of the model development. Improving the entire data science workflow means allowing the data scientists to focus on mathematics and abstracting the training, service deployment, and maintenance in a way that makes the team faster and more productive.

The work location for this role is flexible if approved by UniGroup except this position may not be performed remotely from Colorado.

  • Hands on experience with building data or machine learning pipelines. 
  • Experience developing software code in one or more programming languages (Java, JavaScript, Python, etc.) 
  • Experience deploying high reliability, fast, production HTTP-based microservices in Flask/FastAPI/Django or other server-side Python. 
Skills and Competencies:  
  • ML Libraries: Proficient in one or more deep learning libraries (PyTorch/Tensorflowin addition to Scikit Learn. 
  • Production Experience: Experience in having live services in production, with appropriate logging and robustness to make the production experience smooth.  
  • Software Design: Developing ML workflows is not a solved problem. It will require creativity and skill in designing novel solutions.
