As part of the company's R&D division, you will be running cutting edge machine learning algorithms on audio data sets using large cloud-based computer clusters. The models that you produce will be delivered into the company's products and will also inform research, thus having a direct impact on both customer satisfaction and innovation. This job is open to experienced applicants as well as graduate applicants who are able to demonstrate a strong interest in machine learning applied to audio.
You will be based in my client's new Cambridge office, which is right in the middle of town. For a fast-paced company their culture is what you'd expect: relaxed, fun, close-knit, hardworking and very rewarding. The team is full of friendly experts to help you establish a career in one of the country's stand-out artificial intelligence companies.Primary Role:
The role is to help create new sound recognition products and to work on continuous improvements to existing products for customers. The main tasks are:
- Setting up and running machine learning algorithms on continually revised audio data sets using computing clusters to produce models.
- Analysing the performance of these models on extensive evaluation data sets.
- Assisting research engineers in running R&D experiments.
- Making improvements to the company's machine learning processes.
- Making recommendations to the data team about further data revisions.
- Working with the product manager to understand the requirements of the company's sound recognition products, and working with customers to ensure software is optimised for their products, thus acting as a link between R&D and product deliveries.
