ML Engineer

Black Crow AI is looking for a ML engineer that can work on our machine learning platform - from data ingestion to model building. You'll be part of a small, close-knit team that will empower you to have a big impact.

About this position

About us:

Everyone’s got the message: machine learning is changing everything. And for Fortune 500 brands in every vertical, it’s actually true--ML predictions are solving billion-dollar, migraine problems.  But for smaller, upstart direct-to-consumer brands, the talent and investments needed to build an ML platform are simply out of reach.  

Black Crow is changing that, fast.  Our mission is to help DTC brands turbocharge their growth by delivering bespoke, Fortune 500-grade ML predictions that work out of the box.  For less than the cost of 1 data scientist annually.

Our ML platform predicts the future value of 100% of a brand’s visitors, in real-time as they shop; how likely they are to purchase, repeat purchase, subscribe, or churn in the future.   

We activate our predictions in the CAC-LTV workflow--any place a brand wants to do things differently when they know which users will buy at a 60% rate... and which at 0.6%.  

Our predictions are working for leading DTC brands like Liquid IV, Neurohacker, Keurig, and TheRealReal.  

Integration is 1-click. 

If you’re interested in joining a passionate group of good-looking nerds democratizing access to ML, we’d love to hear from you.

  • Experience with Apache Spark for 1+ years with an understanding of the patterns behind the engine, comfortable creating, augmenting. debugging, and testing Spark jobs
  • Experience with machine learning and machine learning frameworks
  • Demonstrated experience with all aspects of delivering working software, including analysis, design, automated testing, continuous integration and continuous deployment
  • Proven ability to build and deploy large-scale ML pipelines supporting mission-critical production use cases
  • Experience developing, monitoring, and maintaining distributed systems & frameworks (Spark/Hadoop, MapReduce, etc.) 
  • Expertise with AWS (AWS Lambda, Kinesis, API Gateway, ECS, etc.)
  • Bachelor’s degree in computer science, software engineering or any other engineering field
  • Extra credit if you love functional programming!
  • You can work Eastern time hours and you're based in the Americas


More About us:

  • We work Monday-Thursday (4 day work week)
  • Unlimited time off
