Slice is looking for a Machine Learning Technical Lead Manager to join our Information Extraction team.
The Information Extraction team at Slice is responsible for using machine learning to build the world’s largest cross-merchant purchase graph from email. We build engines for email classification and field extraction. We leverage existing open source technologies and established machine learning approaches, but also innovate and research new techniques. And of course, we do all this at a large scale: hundreds of billions of documents.
As a machine learning technical lead manager, you will be hands on, spending a mix of your time researching new solutions for information extraction as well as productionizing these solutions to make sure they work at scale. In addition, you will manage a small team of machine learning engineers and software engineers, as well as communicate and coordinate across the various engineering teams at Slice.
You will be joining the Slice Data Science community featuring PhDs, graduates from universities like Stanford, Carnegie Mellon, UCLA, and University of Washington, as well as veterans from companies like Facebook, Microsoft, Yahoo!, and eBay.
Slice was founded by proven entrepreneurs and offers the best of both worlds: a startup with the backing of an established global company that is revolutionizing the internet services landscape. We are still run by our founders and function as an independent subsidiary. Currently, it is the most cited source in e-commerce.
