The Digital Office leads the transformation of the Technology Solutions product portfolio and is developing a cloud-based micro-intelligence platform bringing a layer of smart services to Technology Solutions' software offering called "Ada". Ada's algorithms use machine learning, natural language processing and deep learning techniques as appropriate, and relies on a big data layer.

Role Purpose:

As an Ada "AI" software engineer, you will participate to the delivery of algorithms that enhance the daily life and professional outcomes of our end-users. You will join a team of other software engineers, Machine learning engineers, big data and cloud engineers, all responsible for the delivery of Ada from the ground up. This role sits between the Machine Learning team and the platform team, ensuring the productization of the algorithms for optimal performance on the platform. You will ensure that the algorithm code is delivered through our continuous integration and automated testing frameworks and support their integration by/with other products via high-performing and well documented APIs. Ideal candidates will bring a well-rounded skillset capable of spanning business, data science and software development disciplines to shape and support our production-grade machine learning solutions.

The Ada team is looking for an AI Software Engineer.

  • Experience with software engineering best practices (programming, testing, version control, agile development, etc)
  • Experience with source control (GitHub) and working in a Linux environment
  • Creative problem solver with a solid understanding of statistics, text analytics, natural language processing and/or machine learning methods and strategies
  • Experience with designing and optimizing APIs a plus
  • Database experience (MySQL, Redshift/Postgres, graph databases) a plus
  • Experience with Airflow a plus
  • Experience with containerized deployments (Docker container) and Kubernetes a plus
