    Senior Machine Learning Engineer

    OVERVIEW

    Sub Rosa is a strategy and design practice headquartered in New York’s West Village. We create strategies and solutions that empower leaders and evolve organizations. Our work is grounded in Applied Empathy, a methodology created by Sub Rosa that brings insights and action together to drive change.

    ROLE DESCRIPTION

    The problems we’re facing haven’t been solved before. We need smart, creative and tenacious minds to help achieve our vision of automating the process of finding real time correlations and patterns in large, unstructured and disparate datasets. These insights will be used by global marketers across the Fortune 100 to inform their next great marketing decisions and creative campaigns.

    We’re seeking a senior machine learning engineer with a breadth of academic and/or work experience in machine learning algorithms such as SVMs, Logistic Regression, Naive Bayes, LSTM, DB Scan, k-NN, etc. In collaboration with the NLP and Data Science experts on the team, the senior machine learning engineer will choose the best algorithm for each situation, tune hyperparameters, provide relevant feature engineering and feature reduction, utilize existing tools and APIs where available and implement appropriate peer-reviewed research paper solutions when pre-existing tools are not available. Our current datasets are large social media datasets (unstructured- and semi-structured-text) that are analyzed in real-time. Future datasets may include images, video, and structured datasets of retail purchase lists, consumer marketing surveys, dynamic geolocation data, etc.

    You won’t find cubicles or drawn-out bureaucratic processes here. You’ll be joining a quickly growing startup team with the mentality, culture and office space to match, but still embedded within a larger company that offers stable funding and organizational creature comforts such as great benefits, 401k safe harbor matching, HR, receptionist, etc. You’ll have your personal choice of laptop and access to snacks, Nespresso coffee machine, sparkling water, alcoholic beverages, video game area (PS4, Switch, N64), a large fluffy white dog (most Fridays), fantastic new whiteboards and markers (team tested and approved), roof deck for BBQs and lounging, free in-house yoga classes on Wednesdays, and happy hours on Fridays. Team members regularly attend relevant industry conferences, workshops, and trainings. Optional team events are a common occurrence and have already spanned from Laser Tag at Chelsea Piers, Axe Throwing at Kick Axe, shooting pool at Fat Cats, and drinks at the Biergarten under the Highline. We take our work and our play seriously.

    If this sounds exciting, we want you to join our initial core team of extremely bright developers and product strategists as we build the first prototypes and develop the commercial version of the product that will be used by brand managers, audience strategists and product managers of the world’s largest advertisers.

    Requirements:
    • Wide range of Machine Learning (ML) expertise with algorithms such as SVMs, Logistic Regression, Naive Bayes, LSTM, DB Scan, k-NN, etc.
    • 5+ years of experience building machine learning systems
    • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills
    • Strong programming skills in Python for solutions prototyping
    • Preference in working in a collaborative team development environment
    • While no academic credentials are required for this role, we expect that most candidates will have a MS/PhD/Doctorate in Computer Science or a related Machine Learning (ML) field.

    *Disclaimer
    All candidates that apply are requested to take a mandatory HackerRank test online and provide up to two references. Additionally, they must have the legal right to work in the US as we are unable to provide employment visas at this time.
