Let’s face it, a company whose mission is human transformation better have some fresh thinking about the employer/employee relationship. 

We do. We can’t cram it all in here, but you’ll start noticing it from the first interview. 

Even our candidate experience is different. And when you get an offer from us (and accept it), you get way more than a paycheck. You get a personal BetterUp Coach, a development plan, a trained and coached manager, the most amazing team you’ve ever met (yes, each with their own personal BetterUp Coach), and most importantly, work that matters. 

This makes for a remarkably focused and fulfilling work experience. Frankly, it’s not for everyone. But for people with fire in their belly, it’s a game-changing, career-defining, soul-lifting move.

Join us and we promise you the most intense and fulfilling years of your career, doing life-changing work in a fun, inventive, soulful culture. 

If that sounds exciting—and the job description below feels like a fit—we really should start talking.

We’re looking for an experienced Senior Machine Learning Engineer who cares deeply about their craft, and who wants to use their skills to bring about positive change in the world while working in a high-performing organization. At BetterUp, the opportunities to apply ML for Social Good are ever-expanding, ranging from developing personalization systems that meet someone where they're at and help them reach their full potential to understanding multimodal human-to-human communication and what makes effective coaching through state-of-the-art natural language processing, computer vision, and audio signal processing.

We're looking for someone who is comfortable in the rapidly changing nature of a startup environment but also adept at moving relentlessly forward: doing what needs to be done to unblock projects that truly deliver value to our users. At BetterUp we delight in supporting and pushing each other to bring out the best in our colleagues, and would love someone to join the team who shares our passions for empathy, excellence, and continuous improvement. We also deeply understand that a key to peak performance is balance, and our culture is focused on providing the support our people need to be able to bring their whole selves to bear in service of our mission.

  • Act as an owner: It’s not done until it’s in production.  Adept at moving projects forward and able to unblock projects regardless of the role on the project.
  • Do less, deliver more: Familiar with the terms YAGNI and yak shaving?  Focus your efforts on high impact initiatives that really move the needle.
  • Impress yourself: We hold ourselves to quality above and beyond something that “just gets it done”.  Each line of code is an opportunity to blend craftsmanship with playfulness.
  • Collaborate without ego: Willing to take on roles small or large in order to further the mission at hand.
  • Stay on your edge: Continuously learning and applying emerging technologies.  Pushing yourself and your team to new heights.
  • Practice imagination: Hypothesize meaningful questions and dive into data to uncover insights.

  • Experience with Transformer-based models for language and vision
  • Effective analytical presentation skills using living Jupyter notebooks and static presentation formats
