Research Engineering Intern

Key Responsibilities

You’ll spend the summer on our research engineering team. You’ll be expected to read current computer science research papers and generally stay up on what’s interesting in the field (we focus on data and machine learning but have wide interests). You’ll also be expected to synthesize new solutions and algorithms in these areas, and to build prototype systems that demonstrate the feasibility of these approaches. Finally, you’ll contribute your written perspective to our published reports.

Skills and Qualifications

We expect you to be a strong programmer, with a good background in math and statistics, and excellent communication skills. Prior experience with machine learning is a plus. We primarily work in Python for research code but are always open to the best technologies for a given problem. If you like to write fun technical blog posts, that’s a plus!
