Position Summary...

What you'll do...

Intelligent Retail Lab is an innovation hub formed by the worlds largest retailer focused on identifying and investing in trends and technologies reshaping the shoppingexperience. Intelligent Retail Labs mission is to create step change in-store experiences, leveraging emerging technology to help define and deliver on evolving customer expectations. Its success requires a cross- functional, mission-based team that is highly entrepreneurial, collaborative and passionate about solving the unsolved problems.

As a Machine Learning Engineer, you will be designing, training and deploying state-of-art AI models in real-world production environment. In conjunction with multiple product and technology groups, you will work to create a best-in-class consumer experience in the physical retail space.

Youll sweep us off our feet if.

  • Deployment of AI models and components to simulation, verification and production environments
  • Experience with complex image or video analytic pipelines
  • Background in some of the following fields: machine vision, signal processing, graph theory, simulations, ontological reasoning, pattern recognition or mathematical optimization.

Youll make an impact by

  • Design and development of advanced data analytic and computer vision algorithms
  • Implementation and training of deep neural networks and other complex models based on state-of-art architectures
  • Deployment of AI models and components to simulation, verification and production environments

What youll do

  • Applied Business Acumen: Provides recommendations to business stakeholders to solve complex business issues. Develops business cases for
    projects with a projected return on investment or cost savings. Translates business requirements into projects, activities, and tasks and aligns to
    overall business strategy. Serves as an interpreter and conduit to connect business needs with tangible solutions and results. Recommends new
    processes and ways of working.

    accuracy, fit, validity, and robustness for multi-stage models and model ensembles.
  • Develops newer techniques (for example, advanced machine learning algorithms,
    auto ML) by leveraging the latest trends in machine learning, artificial intelligence to train algorithms to apply models to new data sets. Guides the
    team on feature engineering, experimentation, and advanced modeling techniques to be used for complex problems with unstructured and multiple
    data sets (for example, streaming data, raw text data).
  • Model Deployment & Scaling: Deploys models to production. Continuously logs and tracks model behavior once it is deployed against the defined
    metrics. Identifies model parameters which may need modifications depending on scale of deployment.
  • Code Development & Testing: Writes code to develop the required solution and application features by determining the appropriate programming
    language and leveraging business, technical, and data requirements. Creates test cases to review and validate the proposed solution design. Creates
    proofs of concept. Tests the code using the appropriate testing approach. Deploys software to production servers. Contributes code documentation,
    maintains playbooks, and provides timely progress updates.
