About the team● The machine learning team is a self-contained team of 9 people responsible for building models and services that support key workflows for IDfy.● Our models are gating criteria for these workflows and as such are expected to perform accurately and quickly. We use a mix of conventional and hand-crafted deep learning models.● The team comes from diverse backgrounds and experiences. We have ex-bankers, startup founders, IIT-ians, and more.● We work directly with business and product teams to craft solutions for our customers. We know that we are, and function as a platform and not a services company.● Be working on all aspects of a production machine learning system. You will be acquiring data, training and building models, deploying models, building API services for exposing these models, maintaining them in production, and more.● Work on performance tuning of models● From time to time work on support and debugging of these production systems● Work on researching the latest technology in the areas of our interest and applying it to build newer products and enhancement of the existing platform.● Building workflows for training and production systems● Contribute to documentationAbout you● You are an early-career machine learning engineer (or data scientist). Our ideal candidate issomeone with 1-3 years of experience in data science.Must Haves● You have a good understanding of Python and Scikit-learn, Tensorflow, or Pytorch. Our systems are built with these tools/language and we expect a strong base in these.● You are proficient at exploratory analysis and know which model to use in most scenarios● You should have worked on framing and solving problems with the application of machine learning or deep learning models.● You have some experience in building and delivering complete or part AI solutions● You appreciate that the role of the Machine Learning engineer is not only modeling, but also building product solutions and you strive towards this.● Enthusiasm and drive to learn and assimilate the state of art research. A lot of what we are building will require innovative approaches using newly researched models and applications.Good to Have● Knowledge of and experience in computer vision. While a large part of our work revolves around computervision, we believe this is something you can learn on the job.● We build our own services, hence we would want you to have some knowledge of writing APIs.● Our stack also includes languages like Ruby, Go, and Elixir. We would love it if you know any of these or take an interest in functional programming.● Knowledge of and experience in ML Ops and tooling would be a welcome addition. We use Docker and Kubernetes for deploying our services.
About usAikon Labs Pvt Ltd is a start-up focused on Realizing Ideas. One such idea is iEngage.io , our Intelligent Engagement Platform. We leverage Augmented Intelligence, a combination of machine-driven insights & human understanding, to serve a timely response to every interaction from the people you care about.Get in touch If you are interested. Do you have a passion to be a part of an innovative startup? Here’s an opportunity for you - become an active member of our core platform development team.Main Duties● Quickly research the latest innovations in Machine Learning, especially with respect toNatural Language Understanding & implement them if useful● Train models to provide different insights, mainly from text but also other media such as Audio and Video● Validate the models trained. Fine-tune & optimise as necessary● Deploy validated models, wrapped in a Flask server as a REST API or containerize in docker containers● Build preprocessing pipelines for the models that are bieng served as a REST API● Periodically, test & validate models in use.
