Senior Machine Learning Engineer
Located in the heart of Old Montreal, AdGear is an advertising technology startup that is now part of Samsung Electronics. We work on complex technical challenges at an increasingly impressive scale, addressing hundreds of millions of devices across the world. Being part of an international company and doing business around the world means that we get to work on big, complex projects with stakeholders and teams in Silicon Valley, Korea and Europe.
As our infrastructure and business continue to grow, we are looking to expand our Engineering team.
What you’ll do
As a Machine Learning Engineer, you will be responsible for designing, building, deploying, and maintaining ML pipelines. You will collaborate closely with our backend and data teams to build scalable ML solutions that can be leveraged by our bidding stack (high-performance, low-latency system). With the help of our SRE team, you will productionize these solutions and help with monitoring their health (not on call). As a consequence, there will be opportunities to contribute to open source, conduct research and development, review code, and share knowledge.
As our first ML engineer you will be given freedom to decide on which ML technologies should be used (with proper justification). This is a unique opportunity to start fresh and build something from the ground up.
You will work with some incredibly talented and passionate developers within an engineering team with a strong technological background building the next generation of AdGear's administrative interfaces, ad decisioning, delivery, data processing and analytics systems.
