Standard · Principal ML Engineer (Infra/Platform)

At Standard Cognition, we’re revolutionizing the way the world shops. By replacing cash registers with computer vision-powered checkout, we’re creating a frictionless experience for shoppers. Since launching in 2017, Standard has contracts with multiple global retailers and is in the process of deploying our Standard Checkout solution across thousands of stores globally. We’re backed by some of Silicon Valley’s leading investors including Softbank, CRV, Initialized, EQT, Draper Associates and YCombinator. We just announced our [Series C in February 2021](https://www.grocerydive.com/news/standard-cognition-hits-1b-valuation-with-150m-investment/595278/?utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Issue: 2021-02-18 Grocery Dive [issue:32526]&utm_term=Grocery Dive)!

We're building a soft real-time machine learning system that provides shoppers with a seamless checkout experience. Our system is vision only, and every store must stream process terabytes of video per day from hundreds of cameras, touching on a multitude of interconnected models. We're pushing the limits of what video comprehension can achieve, and we're expanding to do it at scale. You'll be helping us solve problems that few teams have ever tackled.

We're looking for someone passionate about designing platforms and tools that enable the full lifecycle of machine learning models, from data set creation, to rapid experimentation, to model deployment and monitoring. Your work will be key in helping us deliver state of the art results faster. Progress on improving these systems will have an immediate impact on our shoppers and our business, and will have high visibility in the company.

As a principal engineer you will help set the standard for how we build ML platforms at Standard, and will have a front seat at designing our technical roadmap for how we achieve our most ambitious company goals.

This is a FULL TIME remote role located anywhere in the United States or the European Union.

What you'll do here:

  • Design and build our unified feature store
  • Set best practices for model training pipelines, model deployment processes, and model monitoring
  • Design and build platforms to accelerate the end to end development of ML models
  • Create novel tools to aid in the exploration of data, labels, and model outputs

Your skillset:

  • 4+ years of experience building production ML platforms
  • 6+ years of total engineering experience or 4+ years with a PhD in CS/Math/Physics
  • Proficient in Python
  • Proficient in at least one systems language such as Rust, C++, or Java (we use Rust!)
  • Experience with cloud build, deployment, and orchestration tools
  • Experience with MLOps tools such as MLFlow, KubeFlow, Airflow, or Dataflow
  • You communicate clearly and possess the ability to work cross-functionally across team boundaries
  • You are able to problem solve in a flexible manner
  • You are passionate about the entire ML lifecycle

Only meet some of these traits or experiences? We'd still love to hear from you!
