Job Description

Our mission: make online conversations more constructive and less toxic

Most online conversations go nowhere—they are noisy AF. Important voices get buried in chaos, and the best ideas never see the light of day. Agora is an intelligent platform that offers communities and companies a new way to turn ideas into action. Think GitHub for ideas, powered by AI.

This is an amazing opportunity to join a venture-backed early stage startup to contribute to Agora’s mission to reimagine online conversations. As a part of the product / engineering team, you will collaborate with the core team on both the technical and tactical ways to achieve product-market fit.

As the Lead ML Engineer, besides providing project ownership to the ML/ engineering team, you will also collaborate with the core team on strategy, concept, and design to drive product-market fit.

We're looking for a relentless machine learning engineer / data scientist with a pragmatic view towards applying AI to human-centered applications. Someone who:

+ Believes in the power of technology to reimagine online conversations

+ Think creatively and laterally about solutions and is not afraid to test your many (many!) hypotheses

+ Lives and breathes NLP, deep learning, RNN, etc. and consumes the latest ML research like the rest of us binge-watch Netflix

+ Experience with Scipy/Numpy/Pandas stack, Keras/Tensorflow

+ Ideally has 3+ years of programming / data engineering experience, including prior roles in managing a small web dev team

+ Is curious, humble, able to learn, take pride in your work and have a high bar

We'll invite the right candidate to join us in our San Francisco office immediately. Say hello to us now.
