Machine Learning Engineer

Do you code machine learning algorithms into data products? Do you enjoy the challenge of building solutions to previously unsolved problems?


Big Cloud is working with a company founded 150 years ago and now employing50,000 people worldwide. They’re the biggest producer of many of the components that build your houses, cars, phones and just about anything you can purchase.


What is the opportunity?


This MNC has created a ‘start-up’ data science and engineering division based in Singapore. The purpose is to build a suite of web-based products, hosted on AWS, to address all areas of the commercial business.

They have acquired the services of some leading professionals within their fields. You will join a CTO, Head of Transformation and Head of Data Science and help them to build a team. This will immediately consist of another Senior Machine Learning Engineer, as well as junior members, data engineers, full-stack developers and project managers.

Your job will be to production code; build out the features of highly advanced, very complex prediction and optimisation tools.

So far, they’ve built an MVP that is used to predict supply and demand for freight within their marine chartering entity (which is just one part of a massive supply chain). The task over the first 4-6 months will be to build out the features that will make this an advanced platform that will save the company tens of millions of dollars in fuel, whilst also impacting positively on their carbon footprint.

Once the full product is built and delivered, your team will work with stakeholders all over the world to identify where similar innovations could impact their department. All-in-all, you’re going to develop a suite of products that will have a massive impact.


What’s in it for you?


Work in a ‘start-up’, but within a massive, well-established, highly regarded company. Have the freedom to build out products that have a massive impact without the ‘red tape’ of most corporate environments.

Work with people that come from some of the world’s most recognisable businesses. People with the experience of delivering truly innovative products powered by data science.

Work with the most current technologies.

Work with interesting sources of data; NOT more customer data that powers marketing!


Key Skills:


  • Python
  • Deploying machine learning (forecasting, time-series, probabilistic models etc.) algorithms into a cloud environment
  • Ability to work in a team that collectively builds and deploys code (Git, Slack etc.)
  • Cloud architecture and design (preferably in S3, Lambda, EC2, API Gateway)
  • Comfort at the command line

It would be great if you could demonstrate some code you’ve written when asked during the interview process.

Do you also have experience building continuous integration pipelines for containerised machine learning models?

We would be particularly interested if you’ve used geo-data, solved logistics/supply problems, commodity trading models… but not key, so don’t worry if you haven’t.

We would really like you to be close to the DevOps side of things. Have you worked in something like Docker?

Please note that this is a technical leadership position. You will be coding, a lot. This is not for people that want strategic management/project management only.
