Posted on: May 16, 2022

Job Description:

You want to build large scale ML systems from the ground up. You care about making safe, steerable, trustworthy systems. As a Research Engineer, you'll touch all parts of our code and infrastructure, whether that's making the cluster more reliable for our big jobs, improving throughput and efficiency, running and designing scientific experiments, or improving our dev tooling. You're excited to write code when you understand the research context and more broadly why it's important.

What You Will Be Doing

Optimizing the throughput of a new attention mechanism

Comparing the compute efficiency of two Transformer variants

Making a Wikipedia dataset in a format models can easily consume

Scaling a distributed training job to thousands of GPUs

Writing a design doc for fault tolerance strategies

Creating an interactive visualization of attention between tokens in a language model

What You Need for this Position

High performance, large-scale ML systems

GPUs, kubernetes, pytorch, OS internals

Language modeling with transformers

Reinforcement learning

Large-scale ETL

Have significant software engineering experience

Are results-oriented, with a bias towards flexibility and impact

Pick up slack, even if it goes outside your job description

Enjoy pair programming (we love to pair!)

Want to learn more about machine learning research

Care about the societal impacts of your work

What's In It for You

We believe that the highest-impact AI research will be big science.

We work as a single cohesive team on just a few large-scale research efforts. And we value impact advancing our long-term goals of steerable, trustworthy AI rather than work on smaller and more specific puzzles.

We view AI research as an empirical science, which has as much in common with physics and biology as with traditional efforts in computer science.

We're most excited to hire researchers from diverse backgrounds who share this perspective.

We're an extremely collaborative group, and we host frequent research discussions to ensure that we are pursuing the highest-impact work at any given time. As such, we greatly value communication skills.

We're trying to build a core of knowledge and intuition about the most robustly effective innovations in AI, and so thoroughly-documented null results are almost as valuable as positive discoveries.

We do not have boundaries between engineering and research, and we expect all of our technical staff to contribute to both as needed.

Come work with us! We offer competitive compensation and benefits, optional equity donation matching, generous vacation and parental leave, flexible working hours, and a remote opportunities to collaborate with colleagues.

Colorado employees will receive paid sick leave. For additional information about available benefits, please contact Joshua Blum
