Machine Learning Engineer

Job description

Summary

We are looking for a motivated and high-achieving Machine Learning Engineer based in London to join our Product team in building a platform to optimise every business on the planet. This is a full-time placement with significant opportunities for personal development.


We offer an intellectually stimulating environment, work within an interdisciplinary team and an inclusive culture. We are a high-calibre, mission-driven team building a technology that improves our world.


Roles and Responsibilities

We are looking for exceptional and ambitious individuals to develop our Causal AI platform for time series. You will work as a machine learning engineer in the Product team which is composed of software engineers and scientists. A successful candidate will also be able to showcase broader data science and software engineering skills.


Your focus will be on feature engineering, machine learning, and building causal algorithms for time series using Python, Cython, Numpy, Torch, etc.


The broader application stack includes Python, Cython, Numpy, Torch, Django, Celery, Postgres, Redis, Ansible, AWS, GCP, React and other technologies.

This role is open for candidates of all seniority levels, junior to senior.


The Company

causaLens is pioneering Causal AI, a new category of intelligent machines that understand cause and effect - a major step towards true AI. Its enterprise platform is used to transform leading businesses in Finance, IoT, Energy, Telecommunications and others.


Current machine learning approaches, including AutoML solutions, have severe limitations when applied to real world business problems and fail to unlock the true potential of AI for the enterprise. For instance, in the case of predictions, they severely overfit and do not adapt when the environment changes. causaLens’ Causal AI Platform goes beyond predictions, providing transparent causal insights and suggesting actions that directly improve business KPIs.


causaLens is run by scientists and engineers, the majority holding a PhD in a quantitative field. Contact us on info@causaLens.com or follow us on LinkedIn and Twitter.


We are committed to addressing the diversity problem in the tech industry, and that starts with making sure we have a team where everyone feels at home and can contribute as a peer.
