  3. Research & Innovation: Stay updated on ML research and the ever-changing Gen AI landscape, identifying opportunities for innovation.
  4.  Collaboration & Leadership: Effectively collaborate with cross-functional teams to deliver high-quality solutions on time. Guide team members in contributing to ML design discussions for new projects.



  1. Extensive experience (4-5 years) in software development, with a focus on machine learning and data science in a tech company.
  2. Proven track record of delivering high-quality ML products in a fast-paced, agile environment.
  3. Deep understanding of machine learning algorithms with hands-on experience in developing and deploying machine learning models at scale.
  4. Strong coding skills in Python. Familiarity with machine learning libraries such as PyTorch and sci-kit-learn. Experience with data manipulation and analysis tools like Pandas and Spark.
  5. Strong communication and leadership skills, with the ability to effectively collaborate with cross-functional teams and mentor junior engineers.
  6. Ability and willingness to work in person in our Thane office.


Preferred Qualifications

  1. Experience training and using Large Language Models (BERT, LLAMA, GPT etc) with a passion for applying Generative AI solutions in production environments.
  2. Experience with cloud services (AWS) and building scalable, distributed systems.
