At FLYR, we're changing the way airline industries use data to ease the traveler’s experience — from dynamic pricing, elastic
demand forecasting, to bundling the best offers for end users. We’re taking off on a mission to deliver a real-time prediction and
tracking platform to major travel industry partners, each with millions of consumers hungry for a new, first-rate travel shopping

To achieve this vision, we’re looking for a talented & diverse group of ML Platform Engineers who love machine learning and software engineering, to join our rapidly growing startup in San Francisco.

Our ML Platform Engineering team is responsible for software infrastructure for our ML efforts. They own the lifecycle of an ML model from Juptyr notebook through to production at scale. Our ML Platform Engineers works alongside data scientists on the challenges of developing and improving ML models for a production system, in areas such as continuous retraining, version management, validation scoring and backtesting, “paper trading”, and the execution environment for forecasting and prediction on real time inputs. We work on solving complex optimization problems for very large scale networks, and on the performance engineering of the training and prediction runtimes against large time series datasets.

As a team of engineers, we strongly believe in fostering an environment for intellectually interesting work that advances your
career progression on this journey. Let’s get you on board soon.

What will your destination look like at FLYR?

You will work on the training, validation, and runtime infrastructure for our ML models and network pricing solvers in order to disrupt the airline industry's pricing problems.
You will develop in a robust and scalable data-centric infrastructure using Python, BigQuery, PostgreSQL, Apache Airflow, Spark, Kafka, Kubernetes, and more.
You will work in self-organizing small Scrum teams comprised of Data Scientists, Data Engineers, and ML Platform Engineers.
You will architect production software infrastructure and business-critical ML tool chains.
You will operate as a leader by mentoring new members, growing the engineering-excellence culture, and influencing the larger data science and engineering organizations.

What can you bring on this trip?

You have the knowledge and successful industry experiences in Computer Science, software engineering, cloud computing, ML engineering, and scalable data infrastructure.
You show a real passion for the latest distributed analytics technologies and an ability to architect large scale systems and attack hard performance problems.
You are genuinely eager to make an impact in a high-functioning and high performing Engineering organization.
