  • Publication track record in machine learning conferences and/or journals.
  • Must be professional-level in Python and C++/C.
  • Experience implementing numerical methods and data visualization.
  • Good knowledge of algorithm design.
 
Preferred Qualifications
  • Experience in applying ML to real-world problems.
  • Strong expertise in reinforcement learning and/or deep learning.
  • Competent in one or more of the Google-supported languages (C++, Java, Python) with a desire to learn more.
Perks:
  • Competitive total compensation package
  • Paid holidays and flexible paid time off
  • Making a big impact in the agriculture industry while being part of an energetic and fun team
