Job Description 

As an Machine Learning Engineer, you will work closely with our data scientists and data engineers to design, build and deploy machine learning solutions for business usage in a production environment e.g. design self-running software to automate predictive models.  The consultant will require deep hands on experience in all phases of a machine learning lifecycle to harden, build, deploy, scale, tune, monitor these machine learning models for operationalization of solutions using them.  It is an exciting opportunity to apply your skills to deliver machine learning enabled business applications to industry problems at scale. 
Responsibilities will include:

• Design and package deployments of machine learning models for production environments working very closely with data scientists and data engineers. 
• Using experimentation code developed by Data Scientists as a basis, design and code production ready high-quality scalable application code for operational deployment.
• Select appropriate datasets and data representation methods to enable quick turnaround time for feature engineering
• Define and incorporate software engineering practices into model implementation code and deployments
• Choose, design and use the right ML libraries, tools, programming languages, deployment infrastructures and frameworks for scaling experimented models in production.
• Exploring and visualizing data to gain an understanding of it, then identifying differences in data distribution that could affect performance when deploying the model in the real world
• Work with data scientists to train and retrain systems when necessary 
• Optimize model performance and calibrate on appropriate combination of cloud infrastructure and ML tools
• Design and Implement APIs serving the model outcomes, integrating with business applications, incorporate business rules and obtaining feedback
• Design and implement optimal model stores and collection of model metadata during training and operations
• Design and Implement model monitoring and calibration solutions for performance tracking of production deployed models
• Design and Implement containerized deployments of ML models to edge infrastructures
• Design and Implement A/B testing approaches and standards for model evaluation
