  • Improve code-quality by implementing, teaching and enforcing best practices
  • Elevate the software development skills of all codebase contributors
  • Support hiring for senior developers

What We're Looking For

  • 10+ years of software development experience
  • 5+ years of owning and guiding large python codebase development efforts
  • Experience with PyTorch, TensorFlow or other Deep Learning libraries
  • Experience with numpy, scipy, pandas 
  • Experience with CI/CD and version control systems
