At Facebook, we use machine learning across a diverse set of applications to help people discover better content more quickly, and to connect with the things that matter most to them. We strive to find ways to deliver more engaging content in News Feed, rank search results more accurately, and present the most relevant ads possible.

In order to meet the demands of our scale, we approach machine learning challenges from a system engineering standpoint, pushing the boundaries of scalable computing and tying together numerous complex platforms to build models that leverage trillions of actions. Our research and production implementations leverage many of the innovations being generated from Facebook's research in Distributed Computing, Artificial Intelligence and Databases, and run on the same hardware and network specifications that are being open sourced through the Open Compute project.

As a Software Engineer or Research Scientist at Facebook, you will help build the next generation of machine learning systems behind Facebook's products, create web applications that reach millions of people, build high volume servers and be a part of a team that's working to help connect people around the globe.

RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Develop highly scalable classifiers and tools leveraging machine learning, regression, and rules-based models

Suggest, collect and synthesize requirements and create effective feature roadmap

Code deliverables in tandem with the engineering team

Adapt standard machine learning methods to best exploit modern parallel environments (e.g. distributed clusters, multicore SMP, and GPU)

Perform specific responsibilities which vary by team

MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS

  • Currently has or is in the process of obtaining a PhD degree or completing a postdoctoral assignment in the field of Machine Learning or similar

Must be available to start employment on or before December 31, 2019

Interpersonal experience: cross-group and cross-culture collaboration

Research and/or work experience in machine learning, NLP, recommendation systems, pattern recognition, signal processing, data mining, artificial intelligence, information retrieval or computer vision

Experience in systems software or algorithms

Knowledge in Java or C++, Perl, PHP or Python

Problem solving experience

Proven track record of achieving results as demonstrated by grants, fellowships, patents, as well as first-authored publications at workshops or conferences such as ICML, NIPS, KDD or similar

Demonstrated software engineer experience via an internship, work experience, coding competitions, or used contributions in open source repositories (e.g. GitHub)

Must obtain work authorization in country of employment at the time of hire, and maintain ongoing work authorization during employment
