Working at FeatureX

FeatureX uses AI to discover meaningful patterns in the world's data.  We use computer vision, deep learning and statistical machine learning to extract useful patterns that occur over time and present this information in a manner that is both valuable and easily understandable. 

We attract scientists and engineers with a true passion for data.  We seek individuals who want to build for today and invent for tomorrow.  If you join us, you’ll have the freedom to approach, own, and solve problems creatively.  


 

Responsibilities

As a machine learning research scientist, you will be developing machine learning techniques for a wide variety of data sources, ranging from financial time series data to features extracted from satellite imagery. You will be engaged with projects that use both supervised and unsupervised learning. You will be diving into new data sets and should assume that no data source or technique is off-limits.
