Macro-Eyes is recruiting a Machine Learning Scientist to build cutting-edge machine learning that powers products for crucial supply chains: save lives + enable governments to do more with less.
You will create transformative solutions the world has never seen. We are working on unsolved problems at the nexus of state of the art of machine learning and crucial supply chains: the first predictive supply chain for health; a new, deployed system for understanding demand for lifesaving care; computer vision and deep learning to automate ground-truth data collection when compute has to run entirely on device; deep learning on satellite imagery to derive features that help us understand the ‘context for care’; location inference accurate to within 25M when GPS is unreliable; human-in-the-loop machine learning with experts on the frontlines to learn what we don’t know and generate real-time insight.
Go beyond theory: what you build will become products, deployed across the developing world - and for some of the most sophisticated consumers of technology in the world - to shift crucial supply chains from reactive to proactive, capable of anticipating risk and opportunity for governments and corporations. Your work will save lives.
The Macro-Eyes team is spread across Africa, Europe, and North America. We believe in recruiting the best talent in the world, regardless of location. This role will be fully remote with the freedom to choose how and when to work. Our remote team was executing at the highest level before COVID-19, and we expect to continue to be a fully remote, high-performing team. You will have access to your choice of hardware and a travel budget to interact with the distributed team in person.
Strong drive to use ML for social good, and solid background in machine learning. Statistics and experience working with messy data a plus. Python fluency needed. Demonstrated ability to make meaningful contributions to projects with a research flavor is valuable. The successful candidate will be excited by the fact that the work we will do together is largely without precedent.
Warning: the work will not be like doing data science at Big Tech: the data will not be pristine and what’s required for success is much harder than throwing a series of models at the problem. We expect you to think in terms of hypotheses and experimental design like a scientist and have the drive and ingenuity of a hacker. hands on experience building predictive models
