Software Engineer in Machine Learning/


Your mission We are searching for great machine learning engineers to join the team responsible for: · Extending Criteo's large scale distributed machine learning library (e.g., implementing new distributed and scalable machine learning algorithms, improving their performance) · Building and improving prediction models for ad targeting; proving the business value of the changes and deploying them to production · Gathering and analyzing data, performing statistical modeling You'll have the opportunity to work on highly challenging problems with both engineering and scientific aspects; for example: · Click prediction:ÂHow do you accurately predict in less than a millisecond if the user will click on an ad? Thankfully, you have billions of datapoints to help you. · Offline testing:ÂYou can always compute the classification error on a model predicting the click probability. But will it really correlate with the online performance of this model? · Explore / exploit:ÂIt's easy, UCB and Thomson sampling have low regret. But what happens when new products come and go and when each ad displayed changes the reward of each arm? But what do you do when all data are not equal and when you must distribute the learning overÂthousandsÂof nodes? To qualify for this mission, you need: · MS degree in Computer Science or related quantitative field with 3 years of relevant experience or Ph.D degree in Computer Science or related quantitative field · Good understanding of the mathematical foundations behind machine learning algorithms · Great coding skills.

Michael Brzustowicz is a physicist turned data scientist. After a PhD from Indiana University, Michael spent his post doctoral years at Stanford University where he shot high powered Xrays at tiny molecules. Jumping ship from academia, he worked at many startups (including his own) and has been pioneering big data techniques all the way. Michael specializes in building distributed data systems and extracting knowledge from massive data. He spends most of his time writing customized, multithreaded code for statistical modeling and machine learning approaches to everyday big data problems.
