Sr Machine Learning Engineer (Research Focused)
Join our team and shape the future of AI and video creation
We are building the world’s most capable foundational models, allowing anyone to generate beautiful, cinematic and high-definition video in minutes.
We’re a small team of young & hungry researchers, and have raised over $30m from world class investors including Khosla Ventures & YCombinator. We released our first model two months ago, quickly becoming the fastest growing AI product on Discord since Midjourney with over 100,000 users in 6 weeks.
We’re looking for a Sr Machine Learning Engineer and the role is fully remote.
At Moonvalley, our product development process will be a bit non-standard and consist of small autonomous teams working to ship great features and experiences. Here is a good primer. You’ll work closely with your team (product designer, developers) daily, take ownership, make calls, and see things through without a lot of oversight.
What you'll do (responsibilities)
As a Sr Machine Learning Engineer, you'll play a crucial role in developing and maintaining various AI models and features in our software products. You'll work closely with product designers, developers, and other cross-functional teams to deliver high-quality AI-powered solutions. You'll report directly to our Lead Machine Learning Engineer.
We're seeking a talented Sr Machine Learning Engineer with a focus on Computer Vision to join our remote team. You should be comfortable working in a remote team environment and have excellent communication skills.
Here are some examples of projects you might work on as a Sr Machine Learning Engineer at our company:
Work closely with academic advisors to incorporate cutting-edge research into our product.
Contribute to R&D projects aimed at developing computer vision models.
Keeping up to date with the latest advancements in machine learning and artificial intelligence to continuously improve our products.
Collaborating with cross-functional teams to define, design, and implement machine learning models and pipelines.
Conducting experiments, analyzing results, and iterating on models to optimize performance.
Participate in swift iteration cycles related to Training/Fine-Tuning, testing and deployment of models.
Experiment, validate, and iterate on machine learning models specific to video and image processing.
Communicating clearly and effectively with cross-functional teams to understand requirements and provide technical guidance.
We value team players who are passionate about their work and continuously strive for personal and professional growth. If you're excited about the prospect of joining a dynamic team and making a meaningful impact on our products, we encourage you to apply.
What we're looking for (qualifications)
To be considered for this position, you should have:
MS/PhD in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering or a related field with a focus on computer vision
Proven research experience in computer vision and familiarity with academic conferences (CVPR, ICCV, NeurIPS)
Exceptionally strong Python skills - Minimum 5 years of experience
Knowledge of CNN, RNN/LSTM/GRU, and Transformer models
Rapid prototyping using open-source algorithms and shaping them to meet product needs
Experience deploying ML models in the Cloud
Prior experience with AWS and related services
Experience with databases (Postgres/MySQL)
ML framework: Pytorch / Tensorflow
Experience with experiment tracking systems
Bonus: Contributions to open-source projects in computer vision
What we offer (compensation & benefits)
Competitive salary and equity
Unlimited paid vacation
Fully-distributed culture that’s async first
How to apply
This is a fully remote position with Moonvalley, and we welcome candidates from anywhere. However, we require that you have an overlap with the rest of the team based in MENA and North America working hours.
If you're excited about the opportunity to work on cutting-edge AI technology and help shape the future of video content creation, we encourage you to apply. We look forward to hearing from you!
