Lead Machine Learning Engineer

C++ Python

About the company
This company is now developing a product family which includes a learning and inference software stack and accelerator IP that enables deep learning with low power consumption.
To realize their mission "To create innovative devices with machine learning and make them available everywhere”, the team is developing the infrastructure library to develop deep learning models that run on the product's accelerator.
This infrastructure library includes deep learning operators that this company has patented and numerous sample models, which are used by both internal and external engineers to develop models. The team aims to increase both internal and external model productivity by enhancing the value of this infrastructure library, thus the "product" IP will be embedded in many devices all over the world and used in daily life.
The development of deep learning libraries involves a wide range of issues, including those that can be solved by pure software engineering and those that require following the latest technological developments in deep learning.
PR Aspects
Working hours: Flexible working hours (5:00-22:00, standard working hours 8h), no core hours
Telecommuting allowance 5,000 yen/month
This company is mainly engaged in the research and development of quantized neural networks and the development of their product, an accelerator to run such networks at high speed, in order to solve the problem of power consumption, which is a major barrier to the widespread use of deep learning. Due to the fact that they develop their own hardware, the company is looking for a machine learning engineer who is proficient in deep learning and can lead projects that utilize it in order to develop models that run at high efficiency while meeting the limitations of their hardware.

In particular, they are looking for a talented machine learning engineer who can develop highly practical deep learning models to realize edge AI that works in various industrial fields that require low-power devices, utilizing their product.

- Development of quantized deep learning models considering embedded environments that run efficiently on the accelerator IP.
- Develop high-performance, high-quality models that meet business and customer requirements in target industries.
- Create product specifications, overall design, and development plans, and lead design and development projects.
- Researching, understanding, and sharing the latest technology trends

Development languages: Python, C++
OS: Linux
ML libraries: TensorFlow, PyTorch, scikit-learn
Others: GitHub Enterprise, Slack
